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.

I have taken your other tours many times, but this was a first for the Central Village and Soho tour. Lots of great foods to sample--many that I would have never tried on my own. Our guide was very knowledgable and kept all of us together quite efficiently. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who likes to explore the foods and history of this area. Thanks for the great list of restaurants and stores. Sometime I hope you develop a Soho-only tour in more depth. Returning Seattle-ite.

Our guide, Rahim was very knowledgeable and answered ALL our questions. He put so much enthusiasm in the tour, one could not help but have fun!!! Mari, to whom I gifted this tour, is vegetarian and Rahim was very thoughtful in supplying her with meals to the best of his ability and Mari was very grateful. We thought Rahim was so good that Mari and I have booked the Sushi tour for Thursday, Sept 27th. I will also book the "original" Greenwich tour in the fall. Thanks for such a great time!

What a great afternoon. Luckily a few people didn't turn up so the group was smaller than usual, which meant we could hear the very knowledgable guide (Rahim) easier and got seconds of the delicious food samples which were available! Was a good way of introducing folks to an area they had little or no knowledge of. Thanks for an entertaining afternoon.

Bari was our guide and she was very knowledgeable not only about the food but about the area, family businesses, etc. Can hardly wait to go back and enjoy the village and stay for a meal or two. Larry & I are a couple of seniors and found the walk very easy, 3 hours seems like a long time but it just flew by, in fact we went a little longer. No lunch was needed when we completed the tour. A most enjoyable experience. Look forward to the next time: Mary & Larry - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

I would always recommend this company as their tours are outstanding with wonderful tastings and enthusiastic guides. Barrie was a wonderful guide who delivered an excellent tour. I only wish they had more tours of Astoria etc as I have done most of their tours. I have done tours with other companys that were disappointing. I highly recommend this wonderful tour.

Our leader was very knowledgeable and provided more information than I expected. The food was all very good, and we were full at the end of the tour. A friend recommended this tour to us, and it was one of the things we liked best about our trip to New York. We will recommend to others.

This was a great tour, my husband and I learned so much about the area. We would never have gone here on our own. We went to Monte's restaurant the next day for supper and it was absoulutely fantastic!!!! We recommend it highly and another bonus, it was moderately priced.
