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.

Good Food, Knowledgeable tour guide

The food choices were delicious, and the portions at each establishment we more than ample and no lunch was needed afterward. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for a really fun way to spend a few hours in Manhattan!

We thoroughly enjoyed the leisurely pace of our tour which included tastings from 6 different restaurants. Our guide (Rasheed) gave us interesting historical information of the area,architecture, restaurants, shopping, music, and after hours scene. We had an array of tastings which were all delicious. The group size of 15 was just right. This was definitely a highlight of our trip. We will do it again when we return to NYC.

Excellent sampling of Greenwich Village & Soho

We sampled a variety of tasty foods from locally owned businesses and learned some local history. Our guide included info about successful local businesses he liked and patronized, even though those businesses did not provide tasting samples for the tour. Our guide was courteous, well-informed and articulate.

A good tour, would recommend. Would have sacrificed some of the tastings for more of the culture but all in all well worth the time. Susan was a good guide.

A "Don't Miss" Tour in New York City

The Foods of NYC Tour was recommended by a friend. We went to the website, and it was very easy to book, and the options were well explained. We thought it was going to be just about the food, but were pleasantly surprised when it also became a historical tour of Greenwich. The tour guide, Diana, was very good and very knowledgeable. The food, of course, was absolutely delicious and there was a great variety. We learned so much from this tour, that we are anxious to try one of the other tours on our next trip. We have heartily recommended it to several other people.

We have taken 2 other tours with your group and found this one to present better and more diverse food offerings and an enthusiastic and well informed guide. Despite rain, we had a terrific time.

10 Business Managers loved this tour.

Bari was our guide and she did a fabulous job. Her voice was clear and all participants were able to hear her description of the businesses, buildings, and history of the area. The tour was very informative and the food tastings were excellent. A few weeks ago, my husband and I took the Greenwich Village tour with Bari. Again the food tastings were superb, and we have returned to some of the restaurants for lunch/dinner. In the future, we plan to reserve space on the other "Foods of New York" tours. This Central Village/Soho tour was excellent! If you are visiting New York, this is a tour that shouldn't be missed.
