Heart of the Village Food & Culture Tour

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

Incredible! Top Notch guide!

This tour combined all the elements of an incredibly engaging, experiential, hands-on tour! We not only learned the history of the area but experienced first hand the tastes, smells and sights of home-grown restaurants and shop owners in Central Village and SoHo. What could be better than tasting hand-made cheese on the sidewalk and sampling fine cured meats from a shop across the street? I can't wait to experience another culinary tour in NYC. This was by far the most memorable part of my week. I have returned to Galway, Ireland with fond memories.

This was our second food tour in NYC - although the weather wasn't great (raining), we had a great time. The food samples were tasty and the tour guide was humorous and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for an informative tour of the central village/SOHO area with the bonus of some tasty treats along the way.

Excellent way to see and experience a part of NY

Excellent event. Guide was extremely knowledgable. It is a great way to see a unique NY neighbourhood and sample food along the way. My only suggesiton for improvement would be to add more places for the food tastings.

Great Way to Experience the City & Taste it Too

We felt we got a geat deal for the money: a very knowledgeable guide, a little history, a little architecture, LOTS of food, a little walking and lots of New York!!!! What's not to LOVE. We have been to the city many times and have never enjoyed it quite like this. We will do another tour and take others.

I went on this tour with a group of my family members and had a wonderful time. The guide was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood. The food businesses we visited were extremely friendly and gracious. I recommend this tour highly.

We strongly recommend to try any food excursion organized by this company. We together with our friends tried one and decided to go for the Chinese Food Tour next. The greatest thing about the tour is that you find many good restaurants and food shops with the help of your guide oherwise you would rarely go in by yourself. The interesting stories what your guide tells during the 3-hours tour besides the delicious tasting is really enjoyable. It is fun Unique Do not hesitate and go for it Marianna and her friends from Budapest-Hungary February 27, 2009

Loved our guide! He was very personable, upbeat and fun. Very down to earth. Loved walking the cillage and hearing the history. Of course, the food was wonderful. Even places that I thought I would not like the samples turned out to be fantastic!

No words can express how much fun I had or how much I learned history wise about SoHo. Our guide Susan Volchok was both knowledgeable and had a great personality! I am in the travel industry and will refer your services to all my clients! Keep up the awesome work!
