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.

Fantastic afternoon!

Tasty and plentiful food, along with an interesting history of the area. Tour guide Rahim was upbeat, fun, and well-informed. Enjoyed all the stops on the tour and, although the day was miserably hot, we found shady stops. Perfect way to get an up close and personal tour of a vibrant neighborhood.

We would highly recommend this tour! The guide was informative, fun, and accommodating. The generous food portions were delicious and culturally diversified. We enjoyed visiting the old and newer establishments. Getting to stroll the neighborhood and hear about its history was such fun. Every part of the tour surpassed our expectations! We would definitely tour again with this company and have already recommended it to friends traveling to NYC.

Rahim was our tour guide on our adventure through The Village and So Ho. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and descriptive about the locations, owners, and foods! We enjoyed all the food but were quite full at the end so the tart was wasted on most of us! Our group was nervous at the prospect of Indian food as we are not very adventurous eaters; the wrap there was fantastic! I would definitely recommend the tour; you won't be disappointed.

This experience was amazing. We enjoyed the narrative and history of the area provided by our guide as well as the different flavors we experienced. We sampled (large samples) foods we may never have tried. The variety of the places we sampled were great with tastes for everyone.

We previously did the Chelsea Market tour and loved it. This was equally enjoyable. Good food, informative guide, and pleasant people. Great way to spend a day in NYC.

The Central Village/Soho Food & culture tour might just be my favorite to date. I've been through 2 other tours from the same company (Foods of NY Tours) & i liked the variety of foods the best on this tour. My group also found all the historical information fascinating! Our tour guide Barri was extremely knowledgeable on all the historical facts surrounding the entire area.

Hot July Summer with Raheem but it was worth it!
Sun, Jul 7, 13   12:00 PM phnovey Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This was my first tour and it won't be my last one! Raheem was very informative and, at the same time, humorous, thoughtful, and polite. It was an extremely hot day so Raheem did his best to get us cold water and shade or indoor reprieve from the sun. He was a big reason why we will do this tour again in August with other family members. The food was delicious and the hospitality was genuine. This activity is a perfect way to hang out with your family or friends as long as everyone is mobile. It is primarily a walking tour with a celebration of history and food. There is no better way to understand what a neighborhood has to offer!

We thoroughly enjoyed the food tour. We were glad we were recommended the tour by friends in Aust. Our guide Susan was not only pleasant she was very informative not only about the food but the area we toured. We were treated with decent food and a informative historical prespetive of the of the area we visited. In short it combined the best of two things food and culture in 3 hours.
