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.

We loved our Village/SoHo tour. The samplings of local ethnic foods was awesome and so was our tour guide Raheem. I would definitely do another one!

This tour visited about 30 places of interest. Our tour guide did a very good job and was able to answer all questions. The food tasting was at the peak of perfection . Some of the establishments we visited could not be seen on your own. A lot of history is here for any age group.

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.
