Perfect Solo Afternoon Activity in NYC

I absolutely loved the Heart of the Village Food and Culture Tour through Food of New York Tours and would highly recommend going on a tour! I was able to try a wide variety of food from different restaurants within a concentrated area of the Village while also learning a lot about the culture and history. I went on this tour on a Thursday afternoon. I was staying with my friend in the city and she had to work that day so I decided to sign up for a food tour by myself. Everyone in the group was very friendly and it was a great way to meet other locals and travelers that were also interested in different foods and new experiences!

Diana is a wonderful knowledgeable guide, who knows the Greenwich area, because she has lived there and knows all of the food stops. She described to us before each tasting what we were going to get and not one let s down. The food and people were great. I highly recommend this tour.

I was bought this as a present and very unsure, it was sensational and a fantastic way to see some real local areas and great restaurants and food eateries that we would never of ventured near on our own as they were completely tucked away. Super and would highly recommend.

My husband and I loved the tour! Susan did an excellent job of providing historical and quirky information about Greenwich Village and the places we saw. The food items were yummy and perfectly varied and just the right amount! We have been to New York many times but this really gave us a new view of a neighborhood. We really enjoyed it and plan to do other food tours when we visit again.

Amazingly delicious, informative & fun experience!

Our stellar tour guide, Diana, expertly and with finesse guided our steps and palates through the amazing neighborhood of Central Village. My husband and I loved the experience - we wish that we lived closer to NYC so that we could return to this neighborhood and enjoy dinner at various locales - especially, Monte's. Diana's expertise, leadership and friendly manner enabled our tour group of 16 people to glide along the busy streets. The food and beverages we enjoyed were incredibly delicious. We will be talking about this day for many days to come. We will definitely recommend this tour to everyone we know!

Do not miss this tour!

Plan on learning a lot about Greenwich Village history, eating delicious food, and canceling any dinner reservations you might have had! You will be "stuffed" at tour's end. You will have enjoyed every minute of the tour and every morsel of food! And it's great fun to meet people from around the nation--and world. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough!

Susan was a terrific tour guide. The food was very tasty. You won't need dinner, and start off hungry.
