Heart of the 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.

Fabulous food tour!

This was my third Foods of NY tour, and it did not disappoint! I didn't think another tour could top the west Village tour, but it was every bit as good or even better! The foods we sampled were delicious and abundant! We loved the variety as well. Susan our guide was fantastic! so well spoken and knowledgeable. She knew everyone's name in the group as soon as the tour started! We will definitely go to some of the restaurants and establishments on this tour! Highly recommend!!

We had a wonderful time between the great personality of our tour guide, the lovely weather and the fun of being in the midst of Santacon. A very good time had by all. Thank you.

We chose this tour due to variety of foods. Quality of foods were top notch. Knowledge of guide (Susan) was unbelievable! It's always best to get a local's viewpoint! She was able to answer other questions about other areas of NY, and other activities as well. 3 hours and the amount of food at each location was PERFECT!!! Wish we had booked another during our stay! I'm telling everybody who goes to NY to take (at least) one of these tours!

Great way to discover Greenwich Village/Soho

Great way to learn about a neighborhood in New York with such character: we learned the history; about the local restaurants; and ate interesting food along the way. I usually come to New York and shop in Soho on Broadway, which is only a few blocks away and never ventured into this section of the village. Can't wait to come back and poke around on my own and stop at some of the restaurants and coffee shops that were recommended. Dessert stop at very end was nice touch. Adults in our group appreciated it more than older teenagers who perked up more during Washington Square section and every time we ate.

Culture, history and FOOD!

This is our second tour with this company in 5 years. Such a great way to learn about the area, see things up close AND have wonderful food. Don't do this on your last day in NYC as you will definitely want to get back to dine at some of the places you sample. Great guides. Good timing, guidelines (no shopping along the way) and plenty, plenty to eat. Forget being NYC fashionable - you definitely need to have sneakers on your feet; you will be standing and walking for 3 hours! Good value.

Ask for tour guide Raheem...he had so much insight into the area and food. I believe he does the Chinatown tour as well, so I'll be looking into that.
