Central Greenwich 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 was excellent...took care of everybody, gave interesting commentaries delivered with a clear, resonant voice. He appeared to have a genuine interest in his work and in the area and places we toured. There was a good balance between the food and culture aspects of the tour. The food was interesting. Next time I'm in NYC I would go back on my own to visit the food places we toured.

Fantastic Time!

The tour was great. Our guide not only knew the history of the area and the restaurants, but she was a local who had her own history in the neighborhood and was able to share great insights about the establishments we visited. She made sure everyone was able to enjoy the tour regardless of age or mobility level. Of course the food was fantastic, and while sufficient from a quantity standpoint, left us wanting more from a taste standpoint! My wife and I plan to try another tour the next time we are in NYC. If you are looking for a unique way to explore the city, there isn't a tastier way to do it. Cheers! JP & Julia

Fun Way to Learn History & Enjoy A Bit of Food

Our tour guide Susan couldn't have been more knowledgeable and friendlier. This tour is great because it combines a lesson in history with a bit of the local food thrown in as well. Although we did not go very far -- we stayed within a 6 block radius -- we did walk around quite a bit and we were certainly tired at the end of the day. Sampling food from 7 different establishments that I'd never been to before (even as a local) was delightful. My sister and I took our mother for her birthday and she loved it. I am looking forward to trying another Foods of NY tour in a different area... perhaps Chinatown next. Thanks for a great day!

This was our third tour, and they just keep getting better. The variation (and amount) of tastings were terrific! Tasty and informative - - does it get any better than this?

I can't recommend this tour enough. The food was great, and there was a lot of it, and Diana the tour guide was a fountain of information. It was well paced, with a nice balance of eating and walking time.

Outstanding tour

A brilliant 3 hours, full of interest and great food. The guide was informative and enthusiastic. Can't recommend this too highly. You will go away with a determination to revisit Greenwich and Soho, and to try out the restaurants and food shops you sample. You might also get to meet Abdul Zahir Batin, a jazz drummer of legendary status. While we were waiting for the tour to start, he came up to us and offered to sell the CD of his work (we bought two!). Interesting guy, interesting place!
