activity photo

Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

I had a group of friends who went on this food tour and everyone had a great time, very informative and delicious! We loved each food establishment and even requested vegetarian which was deliciously accommodated! I look at reviews before I book any trip and with that in mind, I highly recommend this tour!

We did the Heart of the Village tour, which took us to several destinations in Greenwhich (including 7 restaurants and Washington Square Park). Rahim was our tour guide. He was enthusiastic, funny and interesting. All of the food was amazing and I will keep them all in mind for the next time I visit NYC. Who knew traditional Italian pasta used so little sauce?! It was the best pasta I have ever tasted! We also tried tacos, pizza, a mortadella sandwich (which I wasn't looking forward to given the reference to bologna, but ended up being amazing), an indian take on a breakfast burrito and an iced tea and a macaron for dessert. Was definitely enough food and thankfully it was spread over 3 hours to avoid becoming over-full. I am pregnant and my stomach tends to fill easily so I had to share some with my fiance. Howevever, he was extremely stuffed by the end and typically has a large appetite. This tour is definitely worth every penny.

Booked this tour with food in mind. Actually enjoyed the guide and his knowledge of the area more than the food. That is not to say the food was not good, it was good.

A voucher for 2 to Heart of the Village Tour was a Christmas gift. I booked it for September (to coincide with my birthday). It was one of the best gifts I ever received. The tour was a full 3 hours -- very organized, the tour guide was very knowledgeable, the sites interesting and the food plentiful and delicious. Would definitely recommend it and look forward to going on another tour. Also, our group was small - 8 people in all - 6 from out of the USA and the two of us -- from New Jersey!!!!

Our tour guide, Susan was very enthusiatic and passionate, she had a wealth of knowledge of the district and its history. The food tasting section of the tour was very diverse, we sampled a wide range of cuisines. Highly recommended!
