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.

Once Again, A Home Run Tour

This is the second Food's of NY tour we have taken. The guide/historian was incredible. Everyone in the neighborhood knew him. The food was excellent and plentiful. The cultural and historical explanation was second to none. The tour was so personal, we feel just like family. This is a must see, must do for tourists and locals alike. If you want to experience the real NYC, this is the best way to spend three hours.

Very Average food but an enjoyable walking tour

The tour guide was lovely and very knowledgable. The walk around the area as very enjoyable and her personal history of the area added a nice dimension to the tour. The food was, at best, average. For a food tour I expected exceptional food but the local deli at union square serves better food than we had on the tour. Would I do it again? Probably not. I could have done a walking tour with no food and enjoyed it as much as this one with such mediocre food. Am I sorry I did it? No but it isn't really a great food experience.

The tour gave a very nice understanding and flavor of the area, combined with good food. The combinations of the foods made for a very nice lunch. The tour guide, Susan, provided a overview of the changes that occurred and that are occurring in this specific area. We will come back and try some of the restaurants in the future.

Our family of 5 (3 small kids) enjoyed the most wonderful food tour through Central Village and SoHo! Our tour guide was exceptional! So knowledgeable, informative and friendly. We honestly has the best time ever. We were so full after the walk and all of the eating, we almost skipped dinner at 8.

This tour was a great afternoon activity in NYC. Our guide, Susan, possessed native knowledge and it showed. It was also obvious that the tour was constantly looking for new restaurants to try. Restaurants of all types.

We had a beautiful Spring day for our tour so walking the streets of Greenwich village was very pleasant. The guide was very knowledgable and shared the interesting history of the Village as we walked. The food we ate was delicious and plentiful and our guides knowledge of the restaurants history made it interesting as well. The tour was well worth the money!

Everything from our guide (Reheem) to all of our stops was awesome. The tour felt very personalized even though there were 14 of us. Totally worth the time and $$$ investment. This was our 3rd tour and we are looking forward to our next trip to NYC for our 4th. What an incredible way to taste and understand the neighborhood. Thank you. Looking forward to our next tour! Chris and Jamie

Very enjoyable history and eating tour
Thu, Apr 25, 13   12:00 PM MelChafetz Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We spent a pleasant three hours touring SOHO. there were about 12 people in the group, small enough to engage in different conversions. It was a thoughtful tour with a delightful guide. She was very knowledgeable and patient with everyone's questions. the food tasting was excellent with a variety of tastes ending with a great chocolate tart. 'We highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in history and trying different foods. The three hours flew by!
