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.

well worth it but bloody cold

The guide Rahim was really good, very approachable and full of information, but had no control over the bitterly cold weather. More time spent indoors in winter would be better.

We thoroughly enjoyed our ethnic foods tour. Our guide was well-informed about the area and provided interesting tidbits of information. The food was delicious. We look forward to doing another of your tours in the near future.

Enjoyed every part of it. The host was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave a lot of good information on the historical part of the tour. Food was very good and the shops were excellent. Still enjoy the good coffee we brought home. Loved it….

We enjoyed the different foods and the cultural experience. It was a good thing to do before visiting Ground Zero - Something we have been doing each year when we get into the city.

Rahim was fantastic, tour was great, food was excellent, and very accomodating for our food restrictions. I wish we got a little further out and abouts the village, but all the tastings were very very good!! Will be back for another tour for sure next time im in NYC

My wife and I took the 'original' tour two years ago and were excited to take another tour this year. We enjoyed the tour tremendously! Susan is a fabulous tour guide... she is very personable and I was impressed that she remember our names during the tour... even as she only just met us... We enjoyed the history and interesting facts about the spots that we visited. The tour helps us to decide where to go when we are in the city... On a side note, we went to 'Palma' for dinner that evening because we were impressed with the restaurant on our last tour... the dinner was excellent and please tell Susan that we had the cauliflower salad and it was fabulous!. We also took some recommendations and bought some pasta at Rafetto's and some coffee at Porto Rico too. We look forward to taking another tour in a future visit to the city. Thank you so much!
