Heart of the Village Food & Culture Tour

Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

My wife and I had a great time. Our guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable and kept the tour upbeat and fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the food and history of this part of NY.

You can't even begin to imagine how great this tou

I cannot say enough great things about this tour. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in NY's SOHO/NOHO section. Raheem (The man) was entertaining as our guide. Food and drinks were awesome, along with the cultural stories shared with us. Raheem was outgoing, polite, keep the group together, obviously enjoyed what he did and made everyone LOVE NY; locals and tourists alike. Even the New Yorkers in and out of the places we visited commented to us and our guide in a friendly way. I'm thinking that if the other tour guides are even close to doing as great a job as Raheem, you are in for a treat. Go. Experience something different in NY. It's not just theater you know!

This is the second tour we have done with Foods of New York and it won't be our last! Our guide Rahim (crazy, enthusiastic, food fanatic) gave us just the right mix of history and personal information as we strolled around the central village and SoHo. We ate everything from Italian to Indian, cheese to chocolate tart. The food choices were great and tailored for both the meat eater and non meat eater in the group. We were lucky to have dry weather which definitely helped. Would I recommend them. Oh yes - without a doubt.

I use this for customer outings. The historical information is very specific to the area. The variety of food samples is enough for everyone.

This was our second food tour and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The food is fantastic and the tour guide very enthusiastically informs you of the background and history of the neighbourhood. We highly recommend these food tours to anyone we know visiting and living in New York.

This was birthday present. My nephew told me the food was excellent and the guide very good. They loved it. It was so easy to book on line for them. I have done 3 foodie tours myself and would recommend them to anyone who loves food.

Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history and responsive to our questions. Her presentation of the food served from the respective restaurants was entertaining and assured us that we would enjoy the offerings (which we four did). We will be utilizing the services again at Thanksgiving.

Excellent Tour

This was a fantastic tour. The tourguide was funny, knowledgeable and friendly. The food stops along the way were all delicious and even though we are locals, we were taken to places we would not have considered before but are now on our 'must go' list. I highly recommend this tour for locals and out-of-towners alike. You will see a part of New York you may not see otherwise, and have fun along the way.
