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.

Rajish was an excellent and informative guide to the village and Soho. We plan to take the china tour next time we are in town. The food, the sites and history made the three hours fly by. We left wanting to do another food tour.

We really enjoyed the whole experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the food was fabulous. I am looking forward to returning to 2 of the restaurants this week.

Spent four days in New York with friends. Of all the things we did--Book of Mormon, Anything Goes, 21 Club, Blue Note--this tour was everyone's favorite activity! Even in pouring down rain, Diana did a fabulous job of providing us with historical facts, interesting anecdotes, authentic restaurants, and delicious food...time well spent!

I would highly recommend this tout to anyone....even if you think you know the Village. This was our 8th trip to NYC and the Village area, and we learned alot about the neighbourhood.....even had a celebrity siting!

My husband and I took the Chelsea/Meatpacking tour in May 2011 and had a great time. The tour leader was Kurt and he made the tour interesting and fun. With that in mind I suggested to my group of friends that we try the Central Village/SoHo tour. Our tour guide was not as enthusiasticic as Kurt and although very nice, just not that interesting. I may have a difficult time convincing some friend into another tour in Feb.

Susan was a fantastic tour guide! She was very informative and entertaining! Even though it rained almost the whole day, we enjoyed every minute...mainly because Susan knew so much about the area and it's history. I highly reccomend these walking food tours. When we come back to New York City, we will definitely arrange another tour!

Susan was an excellent guide. She is intelligent and provides a wealth of information about the area. We sampled some wonderful ethnic samples of the area. I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide, the food and the service created an excellent experience. Our group of four included my daughter-in-law and one of her friends (mid-20s) and my sister-in-law. Our guide was informative about the restaurants, whether they were a part of our tour or not, along with information about the neighorhood, including past history, singers, actors, and movie locations. This helped us to see how viable the area is to New York City. We will certainly visit this area in the future.
