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.

One of our NYC highlights

My teen granddaughters and I thought the Village food tour was one of the highlights of our week in NYC. The guide, Susan, was passionate about New York, the Village, and food. She gave all kinds of insights. The food was fantastic. We went back to one place for dinner another night.

A great way to learn more about the city. We are from New Jersey and have been to the city a thousand times. This tour gave us some history, unique shops to visit again, and a slew of restaurants to dine at when we're back. The knowledge will certainly make us look like experts! Great date idea. When tour is over, retrace your steps and stop in the stores.

We would highly recommend this tour! The guide was informative, fun, and accommodating. The generous food portions were delicious and culturally diversified. We enjoyed visiting the old and newer establishments. Getting to stroll the neighborhood and hear about its history was such fun. Every part of the tour surpassed our expectations! We would definitely tour again with this company and have already recommended it to friends traveling to NYC.

Great tour, great food, great tour guide!

Rahim was our tour guide on our adventure through The Village and So Ho. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and descriptive about the locations, owners, and foods! We enjoyed all the food but were quite full at the end so the tart was wasted on most of us! Our group was nervous at the prospect of Indian food as we are not very adventurous eaters; the wrap there was fantastic! I would definitely recommend the tour; you won't be disappointed.

A real treat

This experience was amazing. We enjoyed the narrative and history of the area provided by our guide as well as the different flavors we experienced. We sampled (large samples) foods we may never have tried. The variety of the places we sampled were great with tastes for everyone.
