Central Greenwich 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.

Outstanding & Entertaining NYC Experience!

I have done a Foods of New York Tour once before with a small group of friends, the Soho tour, so I knew how good this outfit is. This time I chose the Greenwich/Soho tour, with my daughter, age 31. She loved it, and I thought this tour was even better than my previous, which was a hard act to follow! Our guide, Rameen, was outstanding, he really made it so fun and informative, a most knowledgable, well educated guy. We got such a sense of life & culture in the area, past and present, and ate wonderful foods along the way. Got to know some food shops, small restaurants, clubs, that you'd want to return to. What I also liked about the tour is that we saw a lot, but the area we covered was fairly compact, so not miles of trotting to get from place ro place. Rameen had a great personality and we enjoyed hearing some of his own funny experiences acclimating to the neighbourhood scene. We both came away very enriched, and we have been in NYC several times. There is always great stuff to learn and see!

Thoroughly enjoyed this food tour!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the food tour. We had been without electricity for 6 days due to a freak NJ snow storm, what an enjoyable get away we had for the day going on this food tour. The tour guide was great, food fantastic, sites enjoyable. The only negative criticism we have is that there should be time alloted at each establishment to shop and purchase the foods we were enjoying. I am sure each of the establishments would have appreciated selling us their wares. Would highly recommend this food tour to friends and family.

Highlight of our long weekend!

We were lucky to have a cool but sunny day for our tour. I wouldn't recommend walking around in wet / foul weather. Three hours seems to be a perfect length of time for the walk as you don't get to sit down and rest except at two of the six stops. Wear comfortable shoes! Our guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable about New York and food(!) and she spoke very well to our group. The four of us would take this tour again.

This was our 2nd Zerve walking food tour (first was Chicago) and its a great way to learn about a neighborhood, from both an historical and food related standpoint. There was a lot of very good food, and we really enjoyed the variety. From Italian to Indian, etc. The quantity was more than enough for lunch for us. And was quite a bit more than our Chicago tour. Barri was our guide and she was very good. We will look forward to doing another tour the next time we return to NYC. Thanks !!!

Excellent Tour

This was a fantastic tour. The tourguide was funny, knowledgeable and friendly. The food stops along the way were all delicious and even though we are locals, we were taken to places we would not have considered before but are now on our 'must go' list. I highly recommend this tour for locals and out-of-towners alike. You will see a part of New York you may not see otherwise, and have fun along the way.

We enjoyed the tour and the food. The recommendations for local eateries along the way was also appreciated. This is a great way to "experience" the local flavor of NYC. We will definitely try another tour soon!

The tour guide did a good job covering the culture, history, and food of the area. And there was lots of great food! You certainly don't leave hungry.
