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.

Great intro to Soho gastronomy and history

Having enjoyed food tours of neighbourhoods in other cities, my wife and I were so delighted with our introduction to Soho that we'll probably stay closer to this area on our next visit to NYC. Many thanks to Susan and Todd and the restaurateurs for a most enjoyable afternoon. The mortadella sandwich at Cafe Dante was to die for!

Can't say enough positive things about our food tour - our guide Susan was fantastic, food was delicious, the historical information made the tour more relevant and it was lots of fun too! I will definitely come back to New York and do the other tours. I've already recommended this to several of my friends.

Greenwich Village/Soho food tour

My husband and I enjoyed our tour very much. The tour guide was very informative and fun. We were the only ones on the tour who were not locals from New York so much of the conversations were directed towards the locals but we still enjoyed ourselves. The food was good, not "out of this world" wonderful, but good. I would recommend this tour.

Great Tour! Wish we had done it on our first day

The tour was great. Not only did we get to taste great food of different nationalities, we learned so much about the neighborhoods - current and past. I only wish we had done this tour on our first day in the city instead of our last day - that way we would have known about some great neighborhood restaurants to eat at.

Had a wonderful time with my sister and mom. I never saw that part of Manhattan and Diana was a great tour guide. She was very informative and fun. I highly recommend this tour and Diana.

Descriptive tour of the area

Enjoyed all of the restaurants. Went back on our last day to have lunch from 2 of the restaurants as well as picked up pastry from Once Upon a Tart to take home to family in Cincinnati. It traveled extremely well and was as delicious as the day of the tour.

Best tour, so far!!

Did this tour on 08/31/12. Our guide was Raheem. He was a blast. I know this is a food tour, but it was so much more. As this is our 2nd tour with Foods of New York, the history of the neighborhood is as interesting as the food! Raheem had great knowledge of the neighborhood and history. He made the tour so much fun. The other guides, 3 different ones, were equally as knowledgeable and enthusiastic on their tours. This company has it together. Do NOT hesitate to take one or more of the tours. As a matter of fact this is one reason we came back to NY to visit. The food was great, as was the whole group that toured in our group!!! Raheem, EXCELLENT job. Keep up the good work. F. Ford

Great food and location

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour. The food was excellent and we had more than enough to fill us up. We also had a terrific tour guide who really knew his stuff about both the food and history of the Central Village and SoHo areas. He was funny, personable and very informative. Both my wife and I would go on another food tour, especially if we had another top notch tour guide.
