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.

It's now an annual tradition for me and my mother. We went on a similar tour last year that was amazing as well. This tour had so much food, we did not walk away hungry. The guide was extremely knowledgable and you could tell loved her job. We will go again next year!

Happy to return to tour with this group on the Central Greenwich Village Tour. Our guide Raheem was great. As a cook himself his information was historical, interesting and full of lush descriptions of the food we encountered. His enthusiasm for everything around us was so fun.

A fun way to make new food discoveries

Our guide was Susan, she was fabulous. She made the tour interesting and fun. It is a great way to feel more comfortable and familiar with an area. This was one of my favourite tours. We ate delicious foods from Italy, Cuba, India, had interesting drinks from Rabbits and great desserts. I was a solo female traveller so the tour is a great introduction into an area as well you have the opportunity to meet like minded people. The tour is an easy pace as well as very filling. Highly recommended.

The food tasting was very generous, and very delicious! Our leader also had great knowledge of the area, and was very friendly, and even funny! She made a point of learning our names, and making sure we were having a great experience. We did!

Awesome Anniversary Date!

My hubby went to college for culinary arts so incorporating a historic food tour into our 10th anniversary weekend away was absolutely perfect! Our tour guide was amazing and I love that we also heard the history of the area while we learned about the history of the restaurants and food. Thank you!!!

Great tour, with history and wonderful food.

Our guide, Susan, was charming. She knew the area very well, and provided such interesting history, and she was so fascinating talking about the architecture in the area. I've never really been that interested in architecture. Who knew that a "food tour" would also teach me about architecture? She pointed out several places that we visited later, including a jazz club and a coffee store. We not only had a great time on the day of the tour, we totally enjoyed the area when we came back several evenings later. We had no idea what a fun and "happening" part of Manhattan this was! The food on the tour was really delicious - just right for people who are coming with an appetite. We are "foodies" and we love variety and spice and new flavours, and this tour provided all of that. Highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic Tour Guide!

We absolutely loved this tour! We looked at many different companies and tours and decided on this tour for the variety of food it offered. We so enjoyed all 7 of our tastings. Listen to the reviews... you really will be FULL by the end... it was a lot of food! We could not have better things to say about our guide, Susan. Having grown up in the area, she was a wealth of information that was fun and informative. She gave us such great background on the places we were eating as well as others in the area. This was one of the best parts of our trip by far! Thank you Susan!

Getting to know New York
Mon, Jun 3, 13   12:00 PM suefrasch Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We enjoy the food tours very much. They tell us a little about an area that we are not familiar with and we find that we have returned to some of the venues at later times. In fact, instead of staying around Times Square on our next New York visit, we think we'll try Greenwich Village or thereabouts.
