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

Central Village/Soho Food Tour
Fri, Jun 21, 13   12:00 PM LaurConnelly Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
My three friends and I visited NYC and took this food tour. Diana was our guide and our group had 12 individuals. Diana was very pleasant and provided a great deal of history about the area as well as the food/establishments. The amount of food was just right. It was great to try a variety of foods that we have never eaten before. We tasted Italian, Indian, and Cuban food. Our dessert was a chocolate tart from Once Upon a Tart that was simply amazing! I am glad we did not have the full number of people (16) allowed on a tour. More than 12 would be difficult to manage to me.

I loved the Soho/Central Village Food Tour! Our guide Barri was very informative and knowledgeable about the area and really helped our group get a sense of the area and some of its best places to eat. All the stops were fabulous, and I enjoyed the array of food types - from Cuban to Indian to Italian. The beautiful weather just added to our great experience! A definite must for those who enjoy walking and eating as much as we do!

Not as informative or as interesting as the original Greenwich tour, but still enjoyed the tour. The food on this tour was very good and more of a variety than the other tour. Especially liked the Masala Indian restaurant.

We very much enjoyed our walk through Central Village and SoHo. Susan was our guide and the perspective that she brought to the tour as a native was priceless. The food offered was excellent and plentiful. Don't attend this tour and plan on an early dinner- definitely will be too full. Great value for the money.

It's now an annual tradition for me and my mother. We went on a similar tour last year that was amazing as well. This tour had so much food, we did not walk away hungry. The guide was extremely knowledgable and you could tell loved her job. We will go again next year!
