Susie made sure everything was in order by arriving early and checking in with all her restaurants She remembered everyone's name. When she saw us a few days later eating at one of her restaurants she stopped to visit We learned enough to begin to see and appreciate the beauty of the village . We even went back to shop. Highly rec

Central Village Tour

This is a must to put on your list of things to do when you come to New York! This is my second tour, the first was the original tour of the village. There is so much information, and the guides are wonderful!!! I will say that on this tour the food was over the top! The restaurant owners could cut the portions in half, and we would still all be satisfied. The tour may sound long, (3 hours) but it goes bye so quickly, with lots of time to sit and enjoy the tastes of the village restaurants. This tour is a bargin, and a wonderful way to spend the afternoon in New York City. Enjoy!!!

We had a really good time. Not only the delicious foodtasting experiences but we met really nice people from other countries and the US on the walk. This is an activity you do not want to miss! This one we booked straight away after attending the Greenwich Original foodwalk!

We enjoyed this food tour very much and highly recommend if you have 3 hrs to spare. Husband and I took our daughter for her 18th bday for a long weekend of shopping and eating. This tour showed us the hot spots of some of the best eateries and shopping. We loved the history and cultural stories our tour guide shared while walking the streets of Greenwich Village and Soho. Rahim was very entertaining and takes care of his group. The food was amazing!

Our party of three enjoyed listening to our tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the history of the area including buildings, businesses and people who lived there. Although it was pouring rain during our entire tour, our guide knew how to make us as comfortable as possible. The variety of restaurants was good, and I, being vegetarian, was accommodated when necessary. We had the chance to shop as well in several businesses, which was fun. All in all a fun, educational, and yummy experience.

Tasty and plentiful food, along with an interesting history of the area. Tour guide Rahim was upbeat, fun, and well-informed. Enjoyed all the stops on the tour and, although the day was miserably hot, we found shady stops. Perfect way to get an up close and personal tour of a vibrant neighborhood.

It was hot as hell but it was still great. The leader kept us hydrated, in cool places when he could, was very informative about the neighborhood etc. I would tell everyone even New Yorkers to take the time to tour.
