Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

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!

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.

Central Village/Soho Food Tour
Fri, Jun 21, 13   12:00 PM LaurConnelly Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
My three friends and I visited NYC and took this food tour. Diana was our guide and our group had 12 individuals. Diana was very pleasant and provided a great deal of history about the area as well as the food/establishments. The amount of food was just right. It was great to try a variety of foods that we have never eaten before. We tasted Italian, Indian, and Cuban food. Our dessert was a chocolate tart from Once Upon a Tart that was simply amazing! I am glad we did not have the full number of people (16) allowed on a tour. More than 12 would be difficult to manage to me.
