Central Greenwich 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.

Second food tour which did not disappoint

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. This is my second food tour (a couple of years ago, I was on the Greenwich Village/West Village tour which was also quite good.) Susan was a very informative guide and gave us lots of interesting tidbits on the area's history. Food tastings were delicious and definitely more food than I was expecting - you will not go hungry on this tour.

Our tour was fabulous!! the stops were well planned and varied. Our tour guide was terrific - talkative, animated, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, full of good suggestions. We have taken two of the eating tours and will continue to take one each time we visit NYC. We have a child at Columbia Univ and we visit NYC twice a year.

Loved it!

I had gone on the West Village tour in January, and I enjoyed this one even more. There seemed to be more food on this one, and more substance to the samples. The only one we didn't partcularly enjoy was the halvah. Our tour guide, Rahim, was very interesting and knew his stuff. Great mix of food and history. We'd both highly recommend this tour!

Perfect - even in the rain...

We had a terrific time on our tour Friday, April 3rd 2009. Our host was friendly, knowledgeable and fun to be with. Even though it was raining off and on, our guide still made it a wonderful time. We learned so much and ate so much. Well worth the money and time. It is a great way to see and understand these neighborhoods. Looking forward to our next visit to the City. We will most definitely book another tour. Thank you, Chris and Jamie Orlando, Florida

Two years ago we did the Greenwich Village Tour with Kurt and liked it so much that we did another tour this year -- this time the Central Village/Soho Tour with Susan. It was equally wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We learned so much about the area and tasted some divine foods which we would have never chosen to taste otherwise. Susan was so much fun and informative -- everything you'd want in a tour guide. My only suggestion to those considering the tour is to do this early in your stay since you'll surely want to go back to some of these locations to eat while you're in the city! Thank you, Susan, from your Lancaster County group!

it was so nice to see all the family run business and restaurants and that the local people shop locally, not going to the big chain stores as so many of us do the food was great and our tour guide was also, I would recommend this tour to all

3rd of our food tours booked with Zerve...

This one was just as enjoyable as the others, with an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. I love the history of the neighborhoods, more than the tastings actually, and would (have) recommended these tours to locals as well as tourists. More than well worth the time and price!!!

Even though it was coldish and drizzling rain, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Raheem was very personable and knowledgeable, sharing history and insights about the area. The food tastings were really good, giving you a diverse sampling of some of the foods available in this area. It was a really good way to see a part of the "real" New York. We look forward to going on the other tours on our next visit to New York.

Another great FONY tour!
Sat, Mar 14, 09   12:00 PM RBelafsky Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We have taken the other FONY tours of SOHO and Chelsea and have enjoyed them immensly. The Central Village tour we took this past weekend did not dissappoint. Raheem the guide was personable, knowledgeable, and thoroughly enjoyable. If you are not planning any new NYC tours, we'll just have to consider repeating.
