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.

This was a nice tour of the village area and there was plenty of food. We had seven tastings, five of which were pretty substantial, so come hungry. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend.

Our guide was very professional and interested in his job. The food was very good with the exception of Cuba...the empanadas were not authentic...spinach empanada?? The platanos maduros were not maduro. A shame for those who had never tried maduros before. Suggestion: Having groups with children in strollers and some that are not at all interested is a distraction for the others. What to do? Don't know. All in all a very nice day. We'll be back.

We had a small group of 10, it was well paced, extremely informative particularly re the local village life and history. Food was excellent, even on the larger size on occasion. Would strongly recommend.

My 4th food tour That should say a lot!
Sat, Aug 23  12:00 PM Melainecc Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This is the 4th food tour and everyone is exceptional with guides that are passionate about these neighborhoods. Our guide this tour was Susan, a lifelong native of NYC. She knew first hand from her experiences over the years and seeing how the village has transformed since the 1960s. She was a wealth of knowledge. We sampled various places around the McDougal street area. As usual, you are in a small group of 12-15. Come hungry as you will go away very stuffed! Enjoyable afternoon.
