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.

Our group was only 11 people and we had such a great time with Susan. We made 7 different stops and tasted some really awesome food! Starting with pizza and finishing the tour off with a pear and chocolate tart. I think we spent about 3.5 hours walking, talking, and of course, eating. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It was a opportunity to get outside the standards of Times Square. I will definitely be looking to book again on our next trip to NYC

Our guide was an exceptional and knowledgeable local. She was really engaging, providing interesting and informative information as we progressed on the tour. She was happy to answer any and all questions. We really enjoyed the tour, that brought the history and culture to life. The food tasting was excellent and varied, with some options of alcohol to ease things along.

Wonderful experience with Raheem

The Central Greenwich Village Tour has a nice variety of food choices in a great area. We went back to several of the places for meals later on in our trip. Would recommend taking this tour early in your trip so you can go back to places that you like. Raheem, our guide, was a very fun guy that made sure that everyone had a great time (be sure to ask him how the restaurant Rbbts gets its name - "everything's got just a little bit of..." He even pointed out or stopped our group at places of interest (e.g. stores, restaurants, shops, etc.) along the way in addition to the official tasting locations. There is plenty of food served on the tour that it easily takes the place of a meal.

I definitely enjoyed this tour with our great tour guide Raheem, who had a lot of interesting stories to tell about New York City in general and about Greenwich Village in particular. I partizipated alone, but never felt uncomfortable - thanks to our fun tour guide and the other tour participants. The food was very good (Italian, Indian, Caribean - you name it) and also I'm quite familiar with this different types of cuisine Raheem could give me more background information even there. Eat good food AND get interesting information on New York? What a perfect combination and definitely recommended!

Informative, Entertaining and Lots of Food

A group of eight took this tour. Four of us are from North Jersey and the others were our friends from England. We had a great time. Our guide, Raheem, was wonderful with many interesting stories about the sites were visiting. We enjoyed the variety of food we were served. Believe it or not, we could have actually done with a little less food. Everything looks so good that you eat all of it, but by end we wished we eaten a little less along the way.

A friend recommended taking a food tour and @ first I was hesitant as my wife and I were traveling with our 17 and 14 year olds. We had a blast! Susan was extrememly knowledgeable and the food/culture was great. Highly recommend and look forward to taking future tours as our travels bring us back to the city.
