Meet in the Heart of Greenwich Village
The tour begins in one of New York's oldest parks. People have escaped to the greenery of Jackson Square since 1811. Though only a small sliver of area, the park is a gateway to Greenwich Village. Meet your Guide and begin this alimental exploration of one of the city's most influential, unique and exciting neighborhoods.
Head through the cobblestone streets and alleyways taking in the beautiful brownstones that line the community. Learn about the history of the Village from colonial times to the beat poetry and avant-garde artistry that has developed the area's culture and character.
New York Traditions
In case you forgot to eat breakfast (no problem, there's plenty to eat), you will experience a modern spin on the classic New York bagel. Discover the secrets of what makes New York water perfect for not only bagels, but our next stop, pizza.
Is it a cheese slice or a plain slice? In the metropolitan area, it is an important discussion. Whatever you call it, try one of the city's best slices. Though you'll be savoring the incredible triangle in the middle of the day, you are welcome to return well past dark, when NYU students and partygoers of all ages line up for a midnight meal.
After an amazing piece of pizza, immerse yourself in the early 20th century when Italian immigrants helped develop the cuisine of New York. At this over 100 year old butcher shop and deli, enjoy a perfect sandwich, the ideal lunch that creates the keystone of this tour. With high quality meats, freshly made cheeses and top ingredients it is a joy to eat. You will also try a classic Italian street food perfect for a city on the go.
Delicious Desserts to Wrap Up the Day
Head to two very different bakeries for incredible pastries to finish off the tour on sweet notes. Head to a historic Italian bakery for amazing cannoli that you can compare to a twist on french favorites at an innovative and refined patisserie.

Jack was also passionate about the tour company so I am sure anyone from this company would do a great job too. Book it!
Greenwich Food Tour
We have taken this tour before(pre-Covid) with family. This year we went again with friend. I was as good as the first time. We had a different guide (Claire) so we had a different perspective (more great info). Stop were great. We even got to talk to Greg at Bleeker Street Pizza who is the surviving brother of the founder (take the tour to find out all the details). It is definitely worth the time.
