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.

A WONDERFUL afternoon in the city!

Our guide was AWESOME!!!! We loved the food but LOVED hearing about the history of the buildings, restaurants and stores even more. There is always something to learn! We left the city that day knowing so much more than when we arrived. It was a fabulous afternoon with our family. I HIGHLY recommend the tour. We are thinking about going on another tour this fall!

Great Tour - Worth the Money

We enjoyed our guide and the tour was supposed to last 3 hours and it went about 3 1/2 hours. The tour guide was very informative and provided a very pleasent experience. She did not rush us and all of the food we tasted was wonderful. We weren't sure we were going to like the Indian food tasting and we came away really liking it. We live in NJ and had always talked about taking a tour like this - finally did it and we are now looking forward to our next tour.

My husband,son and I tremendiously enjoyed our tour. The food was great, but more importantly, the tour guide was terrific and showed knowledge of the surrounding environment and history. Not only would I recommend it,but look forward to going on it again either with family or friends.

Our guide was very informative and remembered everyones name which was nice.. The food was good, but it was very filling with a lot of breads, fried food, and pasta. I would have liked to see a little less with more quality. The best food of the day was the Indian "wrap" with egg. Also the Cuban restaurant was very warm in the back room, and the day wasn't terribly hot. We had a very nice group and overall an enjoyable walk with my family.

Our guide, Susan, was terrific--very informed of the neighborhood, history, etc. She was a natural. A few of the tastings were unique and ALL were delicious! Would definitely do another tour and have recommended it to friends/family. A great day was had by all.

Great food but need to walk more!

Our Central Village/Soho tour guide was knowledgeable and gregarious. She really gave us the cultural flavor of the Village both past and present. Our food tastings were fresh (in some cases, piping hot!) and ample. My husband and I were sated after the first 3 tastings and we had 5 more to go! My only reservation about not giving this tour 5 stars was that there wasn't enough walking to build up an appetite for the food. More walking is recommended.
