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 great tour with great food

My family and I took the tour of Central Village and SoHo. We had a great tour guide,Barri, who not only showed us the food highlights, showed and talked about the history of the Village and SoHo. The food stops along the tour was fantastic. The highlight of the tour was Cuban restaurant and the Bakery. I am looking forward to taking my next tour. Thank you Barri for a wonderful tour.

It was a really enjoyable afternoon. The food was delicious and the tour guide (susan) really made it for us. She was friendly, local, knowledgable, and approachable. The tour really gave context to our visit in the city and made us realise what we were looking at and how it has changed over the years. Perfect amount of food for me. My least favourite place was actually Monte's which is where we started the tour and where we had spaghett bolognese - bit too salty for my taste and the environment felt dark, empty and lifeless. I would have liked to go inside more places than stand out on the pavement but I realise that it's not always practical. My favourite place was probably the Cuban place because I was introduced to foods that I hadn't tried before. Also the Indian wrap shop, for a similar reason. Would have been good to have a spicy sauce to go with it if we wanted a more fiery experience. Thanks Susan! Memorable and recommendable!

The tour was excellent. The food was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the neighborhood, the architecture, and the food. He was also well trained in culinary knowledge. I feel I could even learn more by taking the tour again. I would recommend the tour to anyone who appreciates food and/or history.

Another fantastic food tour!

I guess we are getting to be Food Tour veterans. The Greenwich/SoHo tour was our 3rd food tour. Raheem, our tour guide, did an outstanding job. Obviously, we were there to experience new restaurants, but Raheem provided us lots of historical and useful information about the Village and SoHo. As in the other tours, our guide was entertaining and knowledgable. When we have friends going to NYC for a trip, I always recommend one of these tours. NYC is far more than hanging out in Times Square with the masses of tourists. These food tours are a great way to see the city, learn about a neighborhood and find excellent restaurants to eat at.

Best way to see the real New York. Our guide was awesome. We were really surprised on the amount of food served. A couple days latter we tried one of the restaurants we visited. We would do it again and again.

If you enjoy a wide variety of ethnic and cultural food, you will enjoy this tour. Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable of the area and the venues. Our group was sad when the tour ended, but our bellies were satisfied.

This tour gives you an insider view of the most amazing restaurants everyday New Yorkers go to. Filled with lots of great information as well. We highly recommend this tour. We'll definitely be back to try one of the others as well. Our tour guide, Raheem was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and friendly.
