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.

My sister and I went to NYC and wanted to explore different areas. Rahim, our guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgable of the area. He took us to a wide variety of places, Italian ,Indian,Cuban, dessert. I think six stops total So much food. Great historical information. And even a unscheduled celeb sighting ! So much fun. I would highly recommend ! I give a 10 outta 10. Great value , great fun!

Our guide, Diana, was great and loaded with lots of historical information about the neighborhoods. She clearly loved the area and eager to share her knowledge of the foods, architecture and people who live or lived in the neighborhood.

Amazing food,facts, and company!

The tour not only brought our group to resturants with spectacular food, but our tour guide provided facts, and history that made this a wonderful experience. We came here for our anniversary, it was so interesting to meet tourists from other countries who may have not been from around here, but enjoyed the food just as much as we were. The tour goes through small dive looking restuarants and shows you how amazing food can be hidden anywhere, as well we provided interesting facts so that we had an idea of what ingredients were in our food. The was a different experience that I would HIGHLY recommend for all ages, teens to 20's and older! The amount of facts wasn't overwhelming or boring, there wasn't too much walking, and the amount of food served was the perfect portion sizes. I must admit before we hit the end I was already full! We are absolutely going to another! Loved it!!!

We had a great time on this tour! Even though the weather was not great, we had a really good time eating the food and learning about the neighborhood. Susan (our tour guide) was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and had a great personality. You can tell she takes pride in our city and was able to mix in personal stories to relate to the neighborhood. We highly recommend this tour!

Lunch of appetizers w/Lots of great local history!

No need for lunch with this historical tour of local neighborhood. But not what I expected. I expected to go to an artisanal cheese shop, taste a bit, and have time to purchase; stop at a deli, taste a bit, with an opportunity to puchase my fave! continue on to: pastry shop, Chocolatier, coffee, tea, etc. Still and all, our guide, Barri was a wealth of information, while we "snacked" our way through the Village into SoHo.

We booked this tour as a birthday surprise for one of our girlfriends and we had a lot of fun. Our tour guide was energetic, passionate and knowledgeable about the area and establishments we visited. And, the food we tasted was delicious. We definitely recommend this tour to others.
