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.

We love NY

It was so nice to see a quieter side of NY. We loved the food and our guide was very enthusiastic. Despite the rain, we had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Enjoyed the varied tastes, flavours & venues. Made more interesting by the enthusiastic guide, and the friendly personalities in the group. We will try another on our next visit.

historic

Our Tour guide made the tour, he was so knowledgeable and gave so much history of the area, buildings and people who lived there. I think I would have liked more tastings as I have had on other tours with you. But it was a wonderful experience and I would want the same guide again

it was so nice to see all the family run business and restaurants and that the local people shop locally, not going to the big chain stores as so many of us do the food was great and our tour guide was also, I would recommend this tour to all

Demonstrating Good Taste!

I have taken several out-of-town guests on many of these tours; the tours have all been thoroughly enjoyable, informative and culinarily delightful. However during the last couple of tours the guides, at the outset, have mentioned that gratutities are willingly accepted! I and my guests have found this overt tipping commentary to be rather distasteful and contrary to the character of the event. Maybe a 'tipping' note on your web page (if one exisits I apologise) would be more tactful. I will return. Thank you,

The tour was a great experience. It not only gave you a taste of various NY foods (which were all awesome), but a great history of the area and how it came about. I LOVED IT! If I get back to NY I will definitly do another tour with you.

Highly Recommend

Even though it was coldish and drizzling rain, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Raheem was very personable and knowledgeable, sharing history and insights about the area. The food tastings were really good, giving you a diverse sampling of some of the foods available in this area. It was a really good way to see a part of the "real" New York. We look forward to going on the other tours on our next visit to New York.

Great Experience and highlight of our trip

I was with my granddaughter 19 years old and she enjoyed as much if not more than I did. Our guide was very informative, funny and charming and willing to answer any question posed to him. We learned the history of the area and went back that night to dine at the Italian restaurant that we were introduced to during our tour. We saw areas of the City that we would have otherwise not seen. Wonderful and a must do when visiting New York.

Another great FONY tour!
Sat, Mar 14, 09   12:00 PM RBelafsky Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We have taken the other FONY tours of SOHO and Chelsea and have enjoyed them immensly. The Central Village tour we took this past weekend did not dissappoint. Raheem the guide was personable, knowledgeable, and thoroughly enjoyable. If you are not planning any new NYC tours, we'll just have to consider repeating.
