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.

This was a nice tour of the village area and there was plenty of food. We had seven tastings, five of which were pretty substantial, so come hungry. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend.

My 4th food tour That should say a lot!

This is the 4th food tour and everyone is exceptional with guides that are passionate about these neighborhoods. Our guide this tour was Susan, a lifelong native of NYC. She knew first hand from her experiences over the years and seeing how the village has transformed since the 1960s. She was a wealth of knowledge. We sampled various places around the McDougal street area. As usual, you are in a small group of 12-15. Come hungry as you will go away very stuffed! Enjoyable afternoon.

Good food and Great Fun

We had previously been on the other Food tours of New York, the Original Greenwich Tour, which was SO much fun so we decided to try this one. Oh my goodness, so much fun, so much delicious food, so much diversity, it was wonderful. It's a relatively long tour, 3 hours, but we stayed in a relatively small area so there wasn't too much waking. Our tour guide was wonderful, Susan, she was funny and informative, and the other tour guests were so nice and fun. We come to New York 3-4 times a year so we feel like we know the city fairly well, however these tours give you such a great way to try restaurants without having to spend an entire meal at them. We have already revisited some of the restaurants. We will definitely do more of these, my daughter is now in school at NYU so I expect we will be visiting even more often.
