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 learned a lot of the "village" and about where it comes from an how it was risen. The food was great, a wide range was offered from Pasta to a Desert, Cubanian to Italian, even Indian food was handed over. I would definitely take another tour if i'd come to NYC another time!

Great food, almost umbelievably good. Lots of variety in the ethnic source of the food and the type of food. Gems here that you might never taste/experience were it not for the tour in bothe the food and the historical, cultural and architectural highlights that the guide provided. Excellent tour guide--fun and informative, sensitive to the needs of the group. Great value-highly recommended. Do it!!!! We will definitely do a tour every time we visit new York.

LOVED THE HISTORY AND FOOD

Had a great time. Rahm was a fantastic guide with lots of enthusiam and lots of knowledge of the area and people in the various restaurants and stores. The history lesson of the area was great. It is much more than the write-up on their web page. Thanks for wonderful time.

Got a good understanding of the neighborhood. However, some of the foods were a bit too much alike (emphasis on cheese).. Tour guide (Raheem, I think) was great! He was very involved with the group (not stand-off ish, like some tour guides). We would be very much like to take another tour with him,

A Highly Enjoyable Tour

The Central Village/Soho tour was quite entertaining - filled with interesting bits of information on food, architecture and culture. The guide was very engaging and knowledgeable. We would recommend a balance between the information shared on food and the way of life in the village as the tour focused much more on the food.

Our guide was not only well informed, but an enthusiastic booster of the neighborhood. The food tasting gave us a teaser & prompted our return to the neighbothood for another look around & a meal the folllowing day. I look forward to another of your walking & tasting tours.

Our group of friends have done a few "Foods of New York" tours and they have been excellent !!! This tour was exceptionally good because of our guide--Rahim. One of the best tour guides we have had on any tour, anywhere !!! Knowledgeable, funny, and a great personality...Rahim made the tour... HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone....

Well worth it

I found the tour to be comprehensive, and Susan, our guide, was very knowledgeable and able to provide answers to questions on all aspects of the tour. It's hard to believe that so much information can be garnered within a relatively small area over a three-hour period.

Enjoyable Day!

We had 5 people in our part of the group, from 22 to 58. We all thought it was informative and enjoyable. Our guide had a passion for that area of NY and for the food. Good variety of tasty food. I have a big appetite and wasn't stuffed, but I was satisfied with the amount of food and it was stretched out over 3 hours.
