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.

I've been to NYC many times, but decided to branch out with the food tour. Susan was a wonderful tour guide. She seemed very informed, and the food selections were a nice variety. While the tour lasted 3 hours, I considered it a "leisurely" tour. There were a few stops where we had the opportunity to sit down, and we walked at a slow pace. I will definitely book another tour my next visit.

One of the Highlights of our trip to New York

Our tour was on a Thursday and we were going home on Saturday which was too bad because I enjoyed the tour so much I would have booked others if we had time. After a few really cold days, Thursday turned out to be a beautiful day to walk around Greenwich Village. Our group was small - only 8 people - so it was very personal. We had a wide variety of food to sample and enjoyed it all. We are telling everyone that this is a must when they visit New York. Thank you!!!

I took my mom on this tour - she was in from FL and we had a WONDERFUl Time!! Sue the guide was terrific! full of information and fun facts! I, along with the other New Yorkers on the tour kept commenting how WE were learning facts about the city that we never knew! The food was fantastic! and the portions were bigger then expected! I would and have been highly recommending this tour. I have been on the original Greenwich Village tour and the Chelsea Market Tour and going on this one just reconfirms that i want to take the other tours that you offer! Best Cynthia

My spouse and I had so much fun! The tour is perfect at 3hrs long. The people on the tour with us were a pleasure to meet as well. And the food...you think you will only get a little morsel here or there, but we were so full by the end, I could hardly manage to eat the yummy dessert tart we got. It was all very tasty. The tour guide was informative, funny and friendly. The facts and trivia about the area we toured was very interesting. We will definitely do more of these each time we go back to NYC!

combined with a little history, this food tour of Soho and Greenwich Village is highly recommended. Our tour guide, Rahim was excellent..

The guide on our tour was excellent. He was very personable and had knowledge of the area. He gave information about the neighborhoods as well as history behind the establishments that we visited. He was an asset to the tour. The food portions were much larger than anticipated. I would recommend this tour.

Entertaining out of town friends for the weekend and wanted to do something a little different. Found this tour on Trip Advisor and the reviews sounded good. We were not disappointed!!!! Susan was our guide for the day and we loved her. She provided the perfect balance of food and Village history. Two members of our group were food loving 15 year olds and they loved her too! Skip breakfast and arrive hungry because the tastings are substantial. The walk was easy, so this tour was perfect for everyone. My husband, son and I can't wait to book another tour!

Great time in Central Village/SoHo

We had a great time in Central Village and SoHo. The food and/or drinks at every stop were delicious. I already want to go back to NYC to eat at all of the restaurants we went to, especially Masala Times. Susan was a really great tour guide. She was funny and helpful. She gave us suggestions for where to go after the tour and gave us directions. This was my second Foods of New York tour and it was just as much fun as my first.

Bari, our tour guide, provided a very interesting background and history of the area. I was exposed to new places to which I will return.
