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.

My second :foods of ny" tour, and every bit as delightful as the first. Staying at a hotel uptown, i now know how important it is to visit the local neighbourhoods in order to fully understand the history of new york, and why the city so rightly celebrates its diversity in food, music, the written word, and beautiful public spaces. Our tour guide was so enthusiastic about the amazing people, the brilliant food from the independent purveyors, and the famous people who once lived in the area. Listiening to his descriptions of life in Greenwich in the 50s and 60s, I could envision the cultural energy that must have existed then. Even today, the area hums with so much life, but without the guided tour you would not be aware of what preceded. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. As someone who loves literature, I could fully understand why Henry James, Edgar Allen Poe, Bob Dylan, ee Cummings, and so many others gravitated to this area that is so saturated with life, and ideas. Thankyou, thankyou Rahim, for an absolutely amazing experience..from a culinary and a historic perspective. We will be back.

We really enjoyed our food tour. We had a great taste of the restaurants in the area and a feel for the neighborhood. Our tour guide, Susan, was wonderful. She knew so much about the neighborhood and its neighbors!

This tour was good. We walked around the village alot and learned many interesting facts about the history of the area. The food tastings, which were interesting, were given to you on the sidewalks. There were various sit downs because of rain but this tour is more for the historical aspects of the area. The tour guide (Diana) is a lifetime local New Yorker and is very versed on the area, famous movie spots and the history. We went to many local places where we can go back to and buy food. I like the idea of going back and buying after the tour. I was sorry there was no pasta tasting at Raffetto's. I didn't like the halavah or the pasta bolognese (although the restaurant is excellent). The Cuban restaurant was nice and could be a very romantic spot. The sangria there was excellent. All in all, the tour is well worth it. I look forward to taking some more.

Food, history, architecture- who could go wrong? I have gone on two tours so far and each time I go, I have so much fun that I start to think about which tour I will do next. Afterward, my friends and I list which restaurants we want to return to and we do so for the next few months.

Diana Rocks!

Having a guide like Diana was Awesome. A true New Yorker in every sense of the word. From the moment she introduced herself, until the moment we had to say goodbye, she made us feel welcome, both to the city, and the tour. She is an exceptional guide and we would Definitely recommend her/the company to anyone interested in a dose of history complimented by the tastes of the city! FANTASTIC!!!

Our tour guide was great. Friendly & very informative. You could tell that he enjoyed doing the tour & made sure everyone had a good time. The 3 hours went by quickly & the food we tried was excellent. A friend had done the same tour & highly recommended it to us. First time I have ever done one & will certainly do another one & tell others about it.
