Guide Lauren or a local guide will give you the full rundown on West Village history as you wind through tucked away neighborhood streets. They'll show you all the classic New York foods and show you lots of popular and a few hidden landmarks. We got to try food from a variety of cultures, done city style! Everyone on the tour quickly became friends and we had a great time sampling and sightseeing.
