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.

This is my fourth Foods of NY Tour and I was again very happy to have spent my afternoon eating a variety of unique and delicious goodies and learning all about the area from a pro. Susan, our tour guide knew everything there was to know about The Village having lived there most of her life. These tours are great and I highly recommend them to everyone!

Our guide, Susan, was very friendly and knew the area well. We had a small group so it was very personalized and we had opportunity to ask any questions. LOTS of food! We were all absolutely stuffed and we really enjoyed being able to go into some establishments and sit for a bit. Covered a. Dry small area so no one should be concerned that it is a lot of walking

There were 8 of us together from the Northeast area, celebrating our 50th birthdays. We had a wonderful time - our guide Susan was awesome and the other members of our group were really fun. We loved learning details about the Greenwich Village area - and absolutely loved all the food! Every piece of the tour was well thought out, and it flowed so nicely together. We were stuffed at the end !! It was the perfect start to our birthday celebration in NYC!

Over the past year we have taken 3 of the Foods of NY tours booked through Zerve and plan to take others on next visit to NYC. Central Greenwich was very different from the Original Greenwich which we took a year ago. As described, there were no overlaps. Tour guide was very knowledgeable of the neighborhood and interesting. There were numerous tastings and they were very generous and delicious!

Great tour of the central village

Food tour that FILLED US UP and provided some rest time (sit-downs at restaurants) and some exercise, walking around the village, but not at a breakneck pace. Visited about 9 different shops, went back to a few after the tour. Also got some interesting info about the history, architecture, culture, etc of the area. Would highly recommend.

Our tour guide Diana was awesome! Great sense of humor and had some great history to share along the way. Each restaraunt was outstanding! Loved the fact that we had many opportunities to actually sit down and the food was delicious. They did no skimp, they gave us actual meals and nice size portions ! Well worth the money and then some! I would do this tour again and highly recommend it to any tourist or New Yorker!

This tour was so much fun. I loved the information our guide, Susan Volchok, provided about the area. The food was totally delicious at all locations. My favorites were the pizza, the chocolate tart and the pasta, however, I loved everything. My husband and my 19 year old son also enjoyed it. Would definitely sign up for another tour!
