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.

It Takes a Village...

We had the BEST time with Barri, tasting, laughing, walking, learning. We would highly recommend this tour if you want to meet fun people, sample LOTS of great food, and just have FUN being a part of the neighborhood for a few hours. Come HUNGRY and plan on skipping dinner that day.

Loved the eating places we visited and learning about some of the history of the village. Certainly didn't need lunch or dinner when we finished! Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Barri knew the history of the area and had good presentation. She excercised good people skills and guided our group through the walking tour with skill and ease. Highly recommend this tour.

Interesting & Fun

I bought this tour as a gift for my husband who loves to try different foods. We enjoyed everything about the tour. Our guide, Susan, was informative and fun to be with. The stops we made provided us with delicious food in just the right amount, so that at the end of the tour we were comfortably full; and the variety of types of food was a plus, too. We loved walking around the interesting neighborhoods of Central Greenwich and SoHo and learning the history and other information about the area. We were lucky to have beautiful weather, so it was a perfect day!

We had a most enjoyable afternoon and have already recommended this tour (and our tour guide) to friends. Learned many new and interesting facts and ate more than is possible in one afternoon. VERY Excellent!

A 'must do' when in New York

This is the second time I've been on a food tour with Foods of New York and I can't recommend them highly enough. It's a great way to see a neighbourhood 'up close and personal'. Plus you get to sample some pretty amazing food. Once again, we had an incredibly personable and knowledgeable tour guide.

Our tour guide gave an informative and fascinating tour. We definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in the history, culture and restaurants of NYC neighborhoods. The food sampled during the tour offered a nice cross-section of this ethnically diverse part of the city.

Our guide was the best. It is a great opportunity to learn about the history of the area in a fun environment. I feel you try some foods that you wouldn't normally try. I would like to try all the other tours. This was my second one and I enjoyed them both.
