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.

Great Time

Despite a windy day in NYC we had a great time! Our tour guide was spectacular and the tour was both fun and informative. My son who is a local New Yorker enjoyed himself and found several new spots to check out. I look forward to taking another tour with "Foods of NY" during our next visit this summer.

Being poor grad students, we were a bit hesitant to spend almost $50 on a food tour, but after experiencing the diverse array of delicious foods, learning interesting historical info about the neighborhoods/local shops, and being entertained by the rather humorous tour guide...we feel it was worth it! We also appreciated the fact that the tour company/tour guide was able to accommodate our dietary restrictions.

Highlight of our long weekend!

We were lucky to have a cool but sunny day for our tour. I wouldn't recommend walking around in wet / foul weather. Three hours seems to be a perfect length of time for the walk as you don't get to sit down and rest except at two of the six stops. Wear comfortable shoes! Our guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable about New York and food(!) and she spoke very well to our group. The four of us would take this tour again.

My sister and I took two more food tours with them this October, adding to our two tours last year in New York. We love them!! Not only for food, but for the history of the area and the great stories from the tour guides. We have had excellent guides, plenty of food and good timing on bathroom breaks! We only have the Chinatown tour left to do.....maybe next year!!

Rajish was an excellent and informative guide to the village and Soho. We plan to take the china tour next time we are in town. The food, the sites and history made the three hours fly by. We left wanting to do another food tour.

Bari was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable not only about the neighborhood but about all the food we ate. She consistently listed off ingredients to all the dishes we had and gave us a great concept of the history behind everything. She was very good at keeping the group together, keeping track of everyone, and had a real passion for the Village. Thanks for everything!

Great tour!!! My first trip to NYC, first day, first everything. The tour was a great intro to the Village. Great insight and historical reference. The food was much better than I expected it to be. Portions were good. Fun group, and a great tour guide. Well worth the $$$. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Toby
