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.

Not exactly a "FOOODIE" tour

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.

We really enjoyed our tour. Barri did a great job - loved hearing the history of the area along with the food. The restaurant owners were hospitable. Food was wonderful. We would recommend the tour to others and take another on our next visit to NYC.

Susan was knowledgeable, personable and a good communicator. The tour was tasty, tasteful and terrific. We experienced a nice variety of food selections and restaurants. Would definitely recommend. Kudos to you Susan for handling the "irritated New Yorker dog owner so tactfully"!
