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.

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.

A Highlight to our NY Visit

A tour worth every dollar. We had a party of nine, with children and the tour catered for our needs. The guide (Raheem) was fantastic, you can tell he was very passionate about his work and the tour not only was a discovery of food but of the areas we visited. We tried alot of food that we would not normally try and this was one of the many highlights. Totally recommended and we are doing another foodsofnewyork tour within the week.

Greenwich Village and Soho - Excellent

Wanting to learn about Greenwich Village and Soho and also wanting to visit some local eating establishments, the Foods of NY Tours took care of both these interests very well. Led by friendly, personable and intelligent Susan, we took a nice leisurely walk over 3+ hours pausing on sidewalks to learn about the area's history. The time was also broken up by sampling several small items from -- on this trip, but each trip is different as they have many places to choose from -- Italian, Indian and Cuban restaurants, plus a cheese shop and French bakery. It was enough food to comprise a solid lunch. We also stopped in a store making fresh pasta and one selling teas and herbs. With a good knowledge of the area, we were then comfortable to further explore the area on our own immediately after the tour and to come back for a late night dinner via subway. I regret not buying from the guy selling pickles from wooden barrels on the sidewalk. The tour provides a booklet with map, 27 restaurant recommendations with particular favorites at each, and coupons. All in all, a wonderful adventure learning about a special part of the city that the typical tourist would never see. Highly recommended.

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.

Wonderful tour with a great variety of tastings
Fri, Jun 8, 12   12:00 PM Burnstein Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We visit New York annually, and this is the first time we took a culinary walking tour. We chose this tour because it offered the greatest variety of food tastings. We expected minimal amounts of food, but were surprised at some of the tastings--they were much more than single bites. We were so full after the tour that we skipped dinner that night before going to a play. Our guide, Rahim, was great, and we learned a lot about the neighborhood and its history. We are looking forward to trying one of the other tours on a subsequent visit to New York.

Dianna was our enthusiastic tour guide full of insightful information, a couple of 'star' spottings and a pleasure! We had just enough to eat, a great historical overview which kept our interest and the time flew. We're planning on a Chinatown tour in the fall.
