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.

This tour provided an excellent neighborhood overview with information on history, famous personalities and restaurants. Printed information made it easy to keep follow where you were and for future reference. Walking pace was very comfortable. Food was excellent in variety and quality and restaurant staff that we interacted with, including bartender at the meeting place, were very friendly. Guide was knowledgeable and personable. Good tour for out of town visitors as well as locals.

Great choices of restaurants. Just felt a little rushed at some places even though we ate at some on the sidewalk. Could have done without the history part of the tour. I signed up for a FOOD tour not history tour. It lasted about three hours but would have only been about 2 hours or less with all the stops at non food venues.

Our guide provided a lot of history to the village and SoHo. She didn't overdo it or underdo it. I honestly thought we would eat a little more but the sampling that we consumed were top notch. The majority of the group was Muslim and the guide was very cognizant of these peoples needs. It did not get in the way of the tasting for the pork eaters either. Overall I would highly recommend.

Excellent tour with good sized tastings. Our guide Raheem was very good and gave the tour like a true food fanatic does it. Also covered some historic of the area which was very nice.

In addition to the food being great, our guide Raheim was great. Very knowledgable, interesting, and very cool. The trip was a gift to my parents and they had an awesome time. Plan on going on another one in another part of the city...

I enjoyed the interesting descriptions of the neighborhoods. The tour guide was well informed and treated the members of the group respectfully. It felt a bit rushed but we covered a lot ground and I wouldn't have cut anything out. The food was interesting, not too filling, and well spaced over the 3 hours. Toilets were available at appropriate intervals. Getting an adult beverage at one restaurant was a bit rushed.

The food tour was a fun time, the guide was enthusiastic and knew a lot about history and more importantly the food. My wife and I loved it and had to go back to one of the local restaurants because the food was so good. I loved that you got to learn about a part of the city that we weren't staying in....was a great experience.
