    “My husband and i went on the Food tour Saturday. We have never taken one of these and had no idea what to expect. What a great day! Adam was a great tour guide with lots of local lore to share. It was fun taste testing at the different venues, ending with cupcakes. What more could you ask! would definitely recommend.”

    Hi Raymond, Matt's pretty fantastic isn't he? His energy definitely brings the tour to a whole new level, and I'll be sure to pass your compliments (and well wishes!) along. I hope you found some great new spots to re-visit, and made fun new memories in NY! Cheers, Inah
    “Good food. Nice variety. Good overall info on history & architecture”
    “Our guide was fun and very knowledgeable. He's a NYC lifer, so he knows his stuff! I'm a picky eater and vegetarian, and every food choice selected was perfect and delicious! I loved seeing Bob Dylan's hangout, the Friend's apartment, understanding NY's gentrification situation, and the walks weren't too long or tiring. Oh, the cupcakes!!!!!! Yum!”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Janet, That's fantastic! I'll definitely be sure to pass your compliments along to the guide. And wow - that certainly sounds like you spanned a ton of New York history, along with the so much of its foodie scene. Cheers to good food in a good city! Best, Inah
    “It was great to experience the West Village and the wonderful food and history that it had to offer. It was an area we would of other wise not seen.”
    “Great time good food”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    And a great review to boot!
    “It was fun, but as a native New Yorker, he brought us to a lot of places we've already been. We were hoping to find some gems, but ended up at some basic spots. When my friend asked our guide why we went to this specific bagel shop, he said it was because it was on the way, no other reason. It was fine and would be more fun for out-of-towners!”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Paige, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience and for your honest feedback. We truly appreciate it as we can only improve from it. I know that our guides strive to impress locals especially, and it sounds like we fell short of it on this tour. I'll definitely pass your comments on to our tour partner as I know they're always looking to do better as well. Warm Regards, Inah
    “Wonderful tour. Matt was great. Learned new facts about NYC history and it architecture, and enjoyed the food choices, especially the empanadas. Highly recommended, even if you are from NYC.”

    Hi David, I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your tour! I'll be sure to pass your kind words along to Matt - I know our guides take a lot of pride in showing locals a new side of NYC.  Regards, Inah

    “Great tour, guide was very knowledgeable. We live in the area and it was great playing tourist and learning new spots.”
    “Ian was fantastic! Being from NJ, we take our trips to NYC for granted - we had no clue of the history we learned. The food selections were definitely THE BEST!”
    “Ian was awesome! He really knew his stuff and kept us laughing and entertained the whole time. All of the food was to die for and the history was very interesting. We would defiantly recommend this tour and guide to others.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Corella,  I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the tour! I hope you were able to find some new favorite spots you can visit again. Be sure to let me know if you ever want to get out on another adventure! ​Best, Jennifer 
    “My husband and I had a wonderful day exploring the West Village with our fun group of 16 people led by our very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful guide Cherie Davis! The food was delicious and a nice variety. We look forward to doing it again and will recommend it to our friends. Thank you.”
    “This tour was extremely interesting. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Food was delicious and a great variety of cuisines. I would definitely recommend this tour. ”
    “The tour was great! Everything worked out as planned from the moment the booking was made, until we bade the guide goodbye. I can highly recommend this tour. ”
    “Very pleasant and educational/entertaining afternoon. It was 3 hours of walking through historical areas of Greenwich Village (West Village I learned) while a friendly, informed and patient tour guide did her thing. The food stops were fascinating and gave us plenty of nourishment (not sure about calorie intake, but the 3 hours of walking made up for it). Highly recommend.”
    “Ian (our guide) was great: knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly, and accommodating. Even having lived in NYC a long time, I learned some things about Greenwich Village (as well as finding some delectable eateries) I hadn't known.”
    “This was a really fun food and history tour, by a friendly and knowledgeable guide.”
    “Easy to figure out which experience I wanted to book and easy to book it.”
    “Everything was very good, fun, informative and casual. What I didn't care for was that 90% of the tastings were done outside on the sidewalk. Fortunately it was a gorgeous day but had it been raining, we would have suffered. Really enjoyed Ian as our guide.”
    “This walking food tour in NY. was a professional experience. Thoughtful, friendly knowledgeable host. Great food. Felt like we were truly eating at local Greenwich Village hangouts. Definitely recommend.”
    “Matt is wonderful. We learned a lot and had a great time!!”
    “Thoroughly enjoyed this food tour in West Village! A great way to explore the area! Very relaxed and chilled-out experience! Our guide (Lynsey) was knowledgeable and approachable, as well as friendly and engaging! I would recommend this experience to others! ”
    “It was an awesome experience. Lindsey, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and relatable! The tour was fun and the food was great! Recommend it to do again!”
    “Ian was a fun tour guide. I appreciated the real estate info that he mentioned! I wasn't as interested in the theater landmarks he pointed out, but I'm sure they would have been very welcome to someone else. The food stops were a little underwhelming; I must have been expecting shops that were a little more off the beaten path. But, the food was good, and getting to see all the little streets was fun. ”
    “First time, had a really nice time, enjoyed the experience a lot.”
    “Ian was a terrific guide. He made the tour both interesting and informative and was a good sport with a large group. Thank you.”
    “Very professional delivery with lots of personality. Ian is very knowledgeable with lots of trivia. Will definitely recommend this to others and will go for more venues ourselves in the future.”
    “The West Village Tour was great! It was a gift from my good friend (and your former employee), Ali! The Cloud 9 Living experience and food tour experience were spectacular! I would recommend both to anyone looking for a change of pace when it comes to gift-giving! ”
    “Dante (the tour guide) was excellent! Nice mix of food tastings & tour/historical info.”
    “The West Village food tour with Ian from Sidewalks of New York was excellent! My friend and I had so much fun. I have lived in New York for 8 months and learned so much on the tour -- from history, to pop culture and cool new places to eat and drink in the area. Each food stop was delicious, and Ian knew the answer to every random question we threw at him. He was a great guide -- super fun and knowledgeable! Highly recommended.”
    “Our guide Ian was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful experience, and look forward to doing more sidewalk tours.”
    “The West Village Food Tour was great. Dante was our tour guide, and he was terrific. The places we stopped at were yummy, and the amounts of food were perfect. We will definitely book another tour.”
    “Ian was our tour guide. My wife and I were impressed with Ian's knowledge, sense of humor, and presentation. No complaints... awesome job!!!! We have already recommended Cloud 9 Living to our children and friends. ”
    “The West Village Tours was great. We are New Yorkers and still enjoyed it! It was great to learn history about the Village we never knew before as well as taste good food. Our tour guide Dante, was very knowledgeable, pleasant and great to tour with. ”
    “Dante was a fantastic tour guide. Friendly and knowledgable. We had a very pleasant experience and would recommend this tour and company to friends based on our positive experience. Warm regards, Phil & Liz Browne”
    “My husband, daughter, and I enjoyed the tour. The only thing we would've changed was the order of the restaurants. We would've preferred to start with bagels and end with dessert (cupcakes). Other than that, it was a great experience.”
    “I have been to New York plenty of times, and while this included a lot of history I knew, I still learned a lot. The eateries chosen were very diverse and represented the city well. My tour guide was excellent and friendly. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants a taste of New York City.”
    “We enjoyed our tour very much; the guide was very knowledgeable of West Village.”
    “We truly enjoyed the experience and have already recommended it to a few people. Would go again on another tour. ”
    “We really enjoyed Dante. He was very knowledgeable and funny. He was very good at projecting his voice, which is real important so everyone can hear. Thanks again, Rick and Karen ”
