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.

I've been to NYC many times, but decided to branch out with the food tour. Susan was a wonderful tour guide. She seemed very informed, and the food selections were a nice variety. While the tour lasted 3 hours, I considered it a "leisurely" tour. There were a few stops where we had the opportunity to sit down, and we walked at a slow pace. I will definitely book another tour my next visit.

The guide on our tour was excellent. He was very personable and had knowledge of the area. He gave information about the neighborhoods as well as history behind the establishments that we visited. He was an asset to the tour. The food portions were much larger than anticipated. I would recommend this tour.

Our guide Susan was warm, charming, knowledgeable and fun. I felt more like a guest and she was my host. Stops and food samples were well chosen and delicious. We wished that we had done this at the beginning of our visit to New York so we could return to dine. Unfortunately we were at the end of our stay. We enjoyed the other folks in the group. The pace was great and we enjoyed the information Susan shared about the area, buildings, food, etc. Highly recommended!

Great tastes with a little history

What a great day! Toured an historic area of New York on foot. Dined at some exciting restaurants in the area and learned how they actually sculpted the area into what it is now. Expanded my palate along the way.

Our tour guide Barri was wonderful and was so knowledgeable! Although we had to "keep to a schedule"...she made it seamless and not pressured. We thoroughly enjoyed our THIRD Foods of NY Tour!!!

Great day and a fabulous guide

Fabulous tour with more than enough food. i could not believe the amount of different stops we made. Our guide Diana was excellent... knowledgeable, funny and a pleasure to spend the day with. I would certainly recomend this trip to anyone who wants to see Greenwich from an "insiders" perspective. Good value for money. There was a small child on our trip who soon got bored. This is definately for adults only and although there is not too much walking you need to be prepared to stand for the majority of the time. overall a great day .... something different ... lunch included .... and I now know a lot more about that area of New York. Brilliant!

Not exactly a "FOOODIE" tour
Fri, Oct 25, 13   12:30 PM kjhayes Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
The food was not very good, not to mention interesting. I also got a weird vibe every time we stopped at a restaurant and we either couldn't go in or they made us wait outside because they were unprepared for our arrival. I felt like we were a nuisance to the proprietors. The man at the coffee shop actually made snide comments like, "ok you've seen it now leave." At the Cuban place, we had to wait outside because they weren't set up for us yet. There was plenty of room at the bar for us to have waited. And speaking of the bar, the guide pushed and pushed everyone to get cocktails (which we could have done earlier if they had allowed us in) and then rushed us so much in the end that people were sucking down their drinks as fast as they could and rolling their eyes at each other complaining about being rushed. And I'm sorry, but the food was boring and unpalatable. It was a waste of money and time.
