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.

The best food tour experience!

Having enjoyed food tours in France, Spain, San Francisco, New Orleans, and with this being our 5th food tour in NYC over the years, I would have to say that this was hands down the best experience! Raheem was our tour guide par excellence and while we did enjoy all the tastings that were included, Raheem definitely added to our enjoyment of the entire experience as he was a very knowledgeable guide, had an awesome sense of humor, and so easily managed to establish a rapport with the entire group. It's fortunate that we skipped breakfast because there was so much food, unlike our tour the day before (with a different company) that left us quite hungry when it was over. We appreciated the glass of wine and the tasty mojito that we were able to order (for an extra charge) at two of the stops. Plenty of opportunity for bathroom breaks too. I wouldn't hesitate to do this tour all over again!!!

Perfect way to see a neighborhood in NYC

This was my fourth tour with foods of NY and it was informative and fun and a great way to sample the food along the way. It's such a pleasure to see the neighborhood throughout the eyes of a native guide and get ideas for a return visit.

Our tour guide, Raheem(sp?), was great! Cute personality, funny, and knowledgable. We lucked out with a gorgeous, sunny day and thoroughly enjoyed all the awesome food. Much more food than we expected! I would highly recommend this tour!

Don't miss Foods of NY tours while in NYC

This is the 3rd food tour we have taken while visiting NYC. Certainly a highlight of our visit! Raheem was a wonderful guide and provided us with humor, history and fun! We can't wait to come back to the city and do another tour! The price is right and definitely worth the time!

Loved the Central Village food tour!!!

We truly enjoyed our Sunday afternoon sampling goodies in the village with Raheem, our fantastic tour guide! It was a perfect combination of tasting interesting food, as well as, learning about the history of the area. He even pointed out to us where fashionista and Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, lives. Very cool! I would highly recommend this tour and Raheem!

Amazing tour! I'm from Long Island so I've grown up with the city so close to explore but yet have really not taken advantage of it. I had done the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking district tour about 3 years ago. I had wanted to explore the central village as I had only been down there a few times. Not only was the food AMAZING (Masala Times was my first experience having Indian food and it was delicious) Susan, our tour guide, was informative and fun. The drinks at the Jamaican restaurant were incredibly strong but the food was delicious. I would recommend this to everyone and anyone looking to experience some local culture and find restaurants to venture to in the area. I can't wait until the next time I'm in the village because now i know so many places to eat at. GREAT HALF DAY ADVENTURE!
