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 tour!

Loved the experience! Took the Central Greenwich tour with 3 friends from out of town and all agreed it was a highlight of their New York City visit. Diana, our tour guide, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, the tour was well organized, and the food was very good. Especially enjoyed visiting the small food shops that were included on the tour. Definitely recommend.

Our guide was amazing. You could tell that he honestly enjoyed what he was doing and also enjoyed the places that he toured with us. We actually returned for dinner at one of the restaurants (Monte's) and stopped by a club (Cafe Wha?) for drinks and entertainment. I would highly reccommend this tour.

Rahim was a great tour guide; he was knowledgeable about the area (history, architecture, fun tidbits) and the restaurants. I truly appreciated his personal opinions on places and dishes as well as his interactive personality. He was able to talk to everyone in the group and was attentive to all of us. The tour itself is well thought out and covers a nice little area that is interesting with a lot of history behind it. All in all, I would definitely recommend this tour.

Exactly What We Wanted

This tour was exactly what we wanted. We had a chance to sample street food in the coolest part of town and the historical commentary on the area put everything into context. The food choices were brave and they didn't try to "dumb down" the experience for masses, which I really appreciated. I will never forget Frank at Joe's Dairy or the lovely mushroom pasta we were surprised with at that Italian grocery store I can't remember the name of. Susan (our guide) was great. She was energetic and informative and best of all, she was a foodie! Good job, guys! The tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to New York and we'll definitely be back for another tour with you when we come back.

Superb food and information about the Village

Raheem was an excellent guide! I highly recommend him. He was funny, and knew an overwhelming amount of information about the area as well as all the foods we tasted. We were very full after our tastings and did not need to eat anything for a long time afterwards! The foods were amazing!! The flavors truly exploded in your mouth with the first bites. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!!

Fabulous time

I enjoyed this tour with a small group of friends on a weekend trip...I can't think of a better way to spend several hours. The tour was informally informative, flexible with the needs of the group, and quite delicious. I enjoyed the diversity of the restaurants visited, and loved all the food. Came away quite full! Loved the guide too. A perfect day.
