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.

Informative, friendly and entertaining!

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.

We really enjoyed the SoHo, Greenwich Village food tour last week...It was a great way to see the area and taste some excellent food at the same time..Our guide was great (sorry, i forget his name)..but he said his family comes from Pakistan.. Anyways...everyone i told said when they come to NY, they will definately book the tour. Loved the Jamaican Patty and the India Paratha the best!! Good job!

This was my 3rd Zerve walking tour and they all have been excellent. The guides are very knowledgeable, pleasant and you can tell that they love their job. My family and I love hearing about the history of one of the greatest cities in the world. Highly recommend these walking tours for locals and tourist alike.

My wife and I could not express in words how much fun, food, information and history we had and absorbed during this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. We are presently talking about our next trip to New York City, and will be taking another tour and bringing friends. Thank You So Very Much

This was our second tour. Our first tour (last year) was of the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District. This was every bit as wonderful. I learned a tremendous amount about the Village...names and places that I've heard of for years..got to see and learn the history....the food tasting was amazing too!!!!
