Central Greenwich Village Food & Culture Tour

Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

After our entertaining afternoon with Susan, my husband and I were able to impress our daughter and her boy friend with our knowledge of Village life and history. The tour description recommended that we skip lunch which we did, but we also had to skip dinner later. Three hours of eating seemed to be all we needed for the day.

Great way to see and taste the neighborhood!

Our tour guide, Raheem, was the BEST! We've been on the other three walking tours, and this was by far the most informative and had the most substantial tastings! Our guide shared his personal experiences in the neighborhood and made it fun for all to taste the different foods. Before each tasting, he clearly described the sampling, piquing our taste buds for what was soon to be served to us. We were facing threatening weather, and he assured us there would be provisions made to keep us safe and dry, while not missing any of the stops. We so loved one of the restaurants that we had dinner there, where we were welcomed as if we were family; Raheem was right - the proprietors in this area are warm and inviting. We'll do this same tour again, and we'll send all our friends!

Enjoyable on many levels

My friend and I decided to take the tour as part of a weekend in NYC. We couldn't have enjoyed it more. The combination of a delightful tour guide (Raheem), wonderful, diverse tasting experiences, and information about the area made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I look forward to another walking tour on my next trip!

Long on trivia, short on food knowledge

The tour of Central Village was a lot of meaningless trivia and very little on actual food knowledge. On several occaisions, the group stayed on the sidewalk across from the establishment and never even saw the inside of the place. We heard about the leader's family's favorites and continual rants about NYU but talked to only a few of the business owners.

We did a similar tour last year and this year was even better. Guide (Barri) was wonderful and food was really good. The history parts were so interesting and loved the people stories. Would recommend it and would do it again.

You learn so much about the area and I wouldn't have gone into half of the places of business without the knowledge and background supplied by our tour guide. Thanks for selecting great food places and giving us the background.....one of the highlights of our trip.

Beautiful experience within the heart of the City

This was our second Food Tour and this by far was the best one yet! Our tour guide was very personable and knew the history of the area in and out. He shared his personal experiences with other area eateries or shops that we didn't actually stop in as well. Definitely do not eat before going on this tour! We had enough to last the whole day. The food and experience was wonderful.
