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.

fun and great use of time

In a condensed amount of time, we got to experience restaurants we may not have known of before, got interesting cultural facts, and a real feel for the neighborhood. The food we had was delicious and came in very good portions. (Also, great variety) We really enjoyed....even went back to 1 of the restaurants the next day! Our guide was terrific...she is a native and you could tell she enjoyed "sharing" her neighborhood with us. She smiled the whole time and was very kind, warm and interactive with our group. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will sign up for another food and culture tour next time we are in New York.

Couldn't have imagined how great it would be

Our tourguide, Rahim was terrific. Clearly he loves New York and he loves to eat. His enthusiasm was what made this walking tour so much fun. We were a group of 6 people getting together for a long weekend and have very different likes from each other, but we all agreed that we liked this tour of Greenwich with all the tastings and the stories behind the locations. Thank you Rahim!!! When the tour ended we did go back to a couple of the locations to get some more food for later on that night.

Good Food, Good Information

Good food and good local information. On a cold day, the guide made sure we spent time in doors. I was concerned about restrooms, but there was plenty of opportunities. Guide was knowledgable about food and about the area- historical information and anectdotes. Would definitely take another tour with this company.

Our guide did a super job! She included background history of the area, interesting facts and foodie information. I had some wonderful tastings. It was nice to sit down in a couple places with the winter weather. I appreciated the brochure of restaurants and shared this with my sister, who is going to New York this week.

I had previously taken the original Greenwich Village tour and last year took the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking tour. Like the others, this was an enjoyable 3 hour foodie romp that mixed in some history of the area. Thoroughly enjoyed by our entire party.

Wonderful tour

After taking (and enjoying) the Chelsea & Meatpacking District tour in October, we decided to try Central Village and Soho. We had a wonderful time. The food was very good but learning about the history of the area was just as enjoyable. We'll definitely take another tour when the weather gets warmer!

Love this tour!

I have already been on this tour before, but a new group came to NYC with me this year and I loved it so much, I went again. It changed a little but was still wonderful. The guide was well informed and kept the group together. But my favorite was the bartender at the Cafe we started from. He made the tour before we even started. If you want to have fun and you want to have fun in New York go on this tour!

Great tour!

This was our second tour. We like to visit different neighborhoods and experience the communities within the city. Our tour guide, Diane, was great. She grew up in the area and knows all the good stories and history of the area. The food tasting was a bit more ethnic that I was ready for...some things I liked, some things I didn't. When I made my reservation I stated that I was a gluten-free eater. Each place we visited accomodated my diet restrictions which was great. Three hours was a bit long maybe because it was very cold. We had a good group of people and had a great time. I highly recommend.
