Central Greenwich 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 our second tour with NY Food Tours and this time we took the family from 11 year old nephew to 82 year old mother. Everyone had a good time and thought that it was a good value. Our tour guide, Susan(we had her last time too), obviously loves the Village and her job and it shows.

Raheem (I have no idea if that's his name, but it started with an "r" :-) ) was a super guide, the restaurants served wonderful food, other stops where interesting picks, and the history of the area was presented most respectfully and understandably. The leisurely pace was perfect, the walking was acceptable for my 83-year-old mom, and bathrooms were sufficient in number. The flexibility for vegetarian diet was appreciated. The guide was extremely attentive to us as well as those going about their normal business. He kept us safe crossing streets and kept us out of the way of regular customers and pedestrians. I would do this again in a heart beat!!! And I'd go anywhere this particular guide goes -- he was fun, knowledgeable, easy to understand, respectful of the neighborhood and neighbors. We all thought this tour was a highlight of our NYC visit!

A Fun and Thorough Tour

I would highly recommend this tour and our guide, Rahim. My 16 year old daughter and I really enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious and different; and we learned alot about the history of the area and where to find great artisan foods. Rahim was pleasant, accommodating and full of information. It was a great way to spend the afternoon and great value for the money. I would not hesitate to take another tour that this company offers.

This is the 2nd time we have taking a tour with you. Three years ago my wife, daughter and I took the original Greenwich village tour and loved it. This trip there was a group of 14 of us visiting New york. This walking tour was on the top of the list for all of!

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.
