Heart of the Village Food & Culture Tour

activity photo

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

The guide had a very good knowledge about the area. The houses and the people who had lived there. We returned to one of the restaurants and had a wonderful and nice dinner our last evening in NY.

My wife and are in our early 50's. I grew up in NY but we do not live there now. The tour of the Village and its restaurants was just as informative and fun for me as it was for her. We would highly recommend this tour for everyone.

Enjoyable, but...

I had a good time and learning about the history of the place was fun. However, I thought this was a food tour first and foremost. Most of the "tastings" were packed into the last portion of tour and felt a little hurried. I would also enjoyed interacting with the local chefs more... we really walked into nearly empty restaurants, ate food, and left.

Tour guide was really great. She clearly loves what she does and has emotional ties to the neighborhood of Greenwich Village. These make her the perfect choice for this position. The food samplings were wonderful. I would go again anytime I am back in New York.

Our tour guide, Susan, was knowledgeable and personable. She provided an enthusiastic commentary and the food was varied, good, and plentiful.

As Good As Expected

We had been on a previous gourmet walking tour so knew that the quality of the content and of course the food would be excellent. It lived up to its expectations in every way. Since the tour ended approximately 3 days ago we have visited and dined in two of the restaurants that we visited and recommended the tour to two groups of friends. One couple we have recommended the tour to are very difficult to please but we know that they will as satisfied as we were. The quality of the content given by the tour guide was exceptional and his enthusiasm for his subject of a very high level. But of course the real plaudits must go the all restuarants we visited, sat in and sampled the food. The range of tastes was breathtaking and the standard and quality beyond what even I expected given how pleased I was with my previous experience on a different tour. So a very satisfied set of return guests.

The highlight of our weekend trip in NYC

Had a fantastic time on the West Greenwich/SOHO tour with Rajim. Went on a different tour several years ago and enjoyed it so much that we signed up for this one. Rajim has such a great personality and was so informative. Wow! And a piece of the best cheesecake - ever! I would highly recommend this tour company for those who are visiting New York and even for those who live there as they will learn a lot of history plus they will get to try some great food. Thanks again!

Raheem, our tour guide, was excellent. He is knowledgable about food, architecture and history and is very engaging and always looked out for the group's comfort. We had very good food and learned quite a bit about local history of the neighborhood and enjoyed the food at the restaurants we visited.
