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.

Our tour guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining! But the food was fantastic!!! This is the second time on this tour (we have done them all)...and we loved the new additions!! Already planning to re-do the rest of them again. I highly recommend these tours..the food is always great, we learn so much about the neighborhoods and the price is amazing!!! You can't go wrong!

This tour gave us a good overview of the area. I liked that about as much as the food! I did love all of the food we tried, and I know I would never have tried many of the food items we were offered on my own. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and we spent more time after the tour visiting recommended spots. Loved it!!

We strongly recommend the food tour. It is a great way to experience the local flavor of New York neighborhoods in a short amount of time. Our guide Susan was very knowledgeable about the area and restaurants we visited. The pace was perfect with a mix of quick street fare and sit down dining. We will definitely try another tour the next time we are in New York.

Raheem was an excellent guide. He was passionate about food and the history of NYC. I was impressed by the pace of the tour - we didn't waste anytime just sitting around. Lots of food and quite interesting. Thanks.

Susan our tour guide was very knowogable with not only the food but the whole neighborhood pointing out everything from different architecture and history to how the people and the food evolved over the years. The tastings were many and the food was plentiful so come ready to try different things and have a open mind and a love for food. Would highly suggest this for anyone who would like to know more of the food culture in NYC. Looking forward to taking another tour with this company!

A must do on your NYC Trip!

We did the tour of the Central Village and Soho areas. It was awesome! The food was very diverse, we got a great history lesson about the neighborhood and our tour guide even pointed out a few of his favorite spots. He showed us the Comedy Cellar which was a great comedy show that we ended up getting tickets for that night! I highly recommend doing this tour and Raheem was an very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who was also from our hometown area in Colorado!! A definite must on your trip!

Favorite spot was Cafe Dante. Would have loved a little more time at the sit down places (felt tad rushed). Wonderful mix of different eateries. Susan also did a great job talking about the neighborhood; you could tell how proud and enthusiastic she was. I could not believe how much we ate along the way, so do come hungry!

Our guide, Raheem, made this an awesome experience - filled with fascinating facts about The Village and its history. The geography came alive for my daughter and me, and the foods, venues and owners were sooo wonderful. Can't wait to try another tour when I return! I hope it's with Raheem.
