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.

I went with my 16 year old son, we both enjoyed the experience and want to do another similar tour next time we visit NY. A cultural experience!

This was a great tour and we loved Susan our guide. She was interesting, informative, and very friendly. We loved the variety of food, the pace of the tour, and the information that Susan shared. Food sample portions are huge, so start the tour hungry! I highly recommend this tour.

This was our second tour -- we enjoyed the first one so much that we went back again and took more family members. The food was delicious and the guide was friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable about the history of the neighborhood and the history of the various restaurants and other food and entertainment establishments we saw. He really brought the neighborhoods to life and he seemed to be having as much fun as we were. We were a multi-generation family: grandparents, parents, and two older children -- 16 and 20. This tour offered something for everyone. Our guide really went out of his way to be sure everyone was having a great experience. He was equally engaging with the grandparents and the kids. When even a teenager is having fun (smiling, laughing, not texting, not rolling her eyes) you know you've picked a winning activity. I'd recommend this food tour for ages 12 through 90!

Tasting and walking tour is a nice pairing. I know Greenwich Village yet still got something out of it. I would highly recommended for young & old.

The Central Village/Soho tour was quite entertaining - filled with interesting bits of information on food, architecture and culture. The guide was very engaging and knowledgeable. We would recommend a balance between the information shared on food and the way of life in the village as the tour focused much more on the food.

The tour of Chelsea was very informative and delicious. Our guide was enthusiastic and knew her material. The tour supplied ample food and treats. I wish the cupcake wasn't the first stop though. It is hard to eat a big sweet treat first thing and then continue on to more real food. I loved the lobster bisque at the Lobster store and the oxtail pasta at the last restaurant. Well worth the time and money.

I really enjoyed the food tour and highly recommend it to those who like to eat a lot! I did not expect to eat until I was nearly sick, but I did. Raheem was a fun, energetic tour guide. It was very interesting to see the old neighborhoods and to eat foods from old established family-owned restaurants. The only draw-back was that it was really hot and we were on our feet for so long.
