Heart of the Village Food & Culture Tour

activity photo

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

I would have liked to eat at more then 5 places. A friend went on the tour and recommended it to me. They ate at 16 places. That was more what I was expecting. Our tour guide was very interesting.

The tour exceeded our expectations and the guide, Susan, was so full of info. There was not a dull moment and the food was great. It was the highlight of our trip.

Our group was delighted with this tour. The food was the best we have ever tasted and the tour was wonderfully informative. We had a terrific guide that shared an abundance of interesting information of the neighborhoods we visited. We all had many compliments for her. It was truly a very special time and I would recommend this tour to anyone; if it is the first or 50th visit to New York. It was great value and you will surely be pleased.

Not as good as Original Tour

I didn't think the area was as interesting as the original Greenwich Village Tour. We also did the Chelsea Market Tour which was also better. I highly recommend either one of those. Kurt was our guide on both of those tours and was fantastic!

Fabulous Cultural Experience!

What a way to end our 7 day NY adventure...too bad we did not do this at the beginning in order to return to some of the venues. We are still talking about our experience! Our guide was enthusiastic, informative, and accommodating:) His expertise of the area was outstanding. We highly recommend this walking and tasting tour to anyone who enjoys history, culture and delicious food. Our only regret was we had time to attend only one of the many foods tours offered.
