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.

Excellent samplings and information

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The food samplings were delicious and a great variety. Susan was a wealth of information about the area and made the tour interesting and entertaining. She obviously had a personal relationship with many of the vendors which made the experience even better. I will definitely try other tours given by your organization.

10/08/10 Central Village/SoHo Food & Culture Tour

My wife and I took the 'original' tour two years ago and were excited to take another tour this year. We enjoyed the tour tremendously! Susan is a fabulous tour guide... she is very personable and I was impressed that she remember our names during the tour... even as she only just met us... We enjoyed the history and interesting facts about the spots that we visited. The tour helps us to decide where to go when we are in the city... On a side note, we went to 'Palma' for dinner that evening because we were impressed with the restaurant on our last tour... the dinner was excellent and please tell Susan that we had the cauliflower salad and it was fabulous!. We also took some recommendations and bought some pasta at Rafetto's and some coffee at Porto Rico too. We look forward to taking another tour in a future visit to the city. Thank you so much!

A "must do"

This food tour is a "must do" activity... especially if you are new to Manhattan and are still trying to navigate through the maze of streets and restaurants! The restaurant choices were excellent and my tour guide was was helpful, informative.. and fun to listen to! Learning where to go from a Tour Guide who is a seasoned New Yorker - saved me both time and money! I plan to do this again on my next visit!

Rahim Rocks :)

We had a wonderful guide in Rahim for our Soho tour. The food was excellent, especially the empanadas and mojito from Cuba and the bolognese from Monte's. This was our third tour with this company and I highly recommend them to everyone I see. We will come back again for a different tour on our next visit. Thanks again Rahim for a great rainy afternoon.

This is my 2nd tour with Foodtours and loved them both. Last year went with a different tour group and was disappointed. Can't wait to do the Meatpacking /Chelsea tour next year.

Our tour guide was very knowledgable! He included a lot of witty info from personal experiences, along with historical facts. My husband and I will take additional tours on our next visit. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The food tastings were incredible.

interesting and tasty
Sat, Sep 25, 10   1:00 PM katnordmark Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
A very nice, interesting and tasty tour around a neighbourhood with history. We had teenagers with us and it is not always easy to please them but they were surprised themselves afterward and said that it was great. When (not if) we come again we sure like to go on a similar tour and we will recommend this to all our friends!

By far the best tour we took while in NYC
Fri, Sep 24, 10   12:00 PM blamey Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This was such a fun activity. Our entire group which was mothers and daughters (ages 26 to 62) all voted this the best tour we took while in the city. We saw parts of neighborhoods we would never had seen and ate food that was wonderful from places we'd never in a million years go. We were so impressed, we cancelled dinner reservations for one place and made them for one of the restaraunts we stopped at on the tour!! We would all highly recommend this tour to anyone going to visit NYC.
