We had a great time on the Heart of the Village tour. Wonderful historical info, great sampling of foods, and a great tour guide. I would recommend this tour to friends or family visiting NYC.

We, my 14 year old niece, her friend and I, wanted to do something different during our trip to NY and found the food tour on line. We loved the whole experience. Our guide Susan was fantastic. She was warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and excited about the topic. The food choices were delivous and I loved the combination of the culture, food and history. I left the city in 2008 hatter 9 years and it was great to be back and experience something new! The tour was also great for the teenagers, they learned a lot from the experience. I've already recomdned the tour to other friends.

Great tour with the friendly Diana.

Really enjoyed seeing all the different locations and eateries. Delicious food tastings but be prepared to eat on the hoof as you could only sit down for 2 of the samples. Plenty to eat! There seemed to be a lot of cheese so mention it when booking if you are not keen on it!

Great tour, heaps of things to try and interesting interludes of history, information and fun insights from Diana who was exceptional. Great way to get to know an area of the city both historically (without any stuffiness) and to identify MUST VISIT places following the tour. Highly recommended

I will probably spell his name wrong, but Rawmon(he is from Brooklyn) was absolutely fantastic! He was funny and knew everything about the neighborhood. If we visit NYC again, we will definitely request him. The food was great also. We really enjoyed it.

Great for foodies

I took my son as a surprise for his birthday. He is an avid watcher of the food network and a lover of all cuisines, which is why I picked this tour. Can't say enough good about our tour guide Rasheem. He was extremely knowledgable about the food, the culture and interesting facts about the neighborhood. Never was there a dull moment. We tasted foods from American cuisine (grilled cheese outstanding), Indian, coffee house, Italian pasta, pizza, tea house, Mexican and ended with a French macaroon. Rasheem even managed the Mexican eatery to bring out a flan for his birthday and everybody sang. Highly recommended tour. Can't wait to go to my next.

Delicious Food with a Slice of History

My 14-year-old son and I took the Heart of the Village food tour with Susan on July 25. Not only were we treated to an amazing array of international foods on this tour, we also learned more than expected about the area through which we walked. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area her passion for New York was apparent. There was more than enough food to satisfy even a growing teenage boy ... believe me, no one went hungry! Definitely a highlight of our New York trip, and I will definitely do another tour the next time I'm in town.

The food is great (and very plentiful!), but you also learn so much about the area and its history. Our guide, Susan, could not have been more knowledgable and engaging. My husband and I had a wonderful time!

Fun afternoon exploring Greenwich Village

I thoroughly enjoyed the Heart of the Village tour with our enthusiastic guide Susan. We learnt plenty about the history of the neighbourhood and the current cultural space. They were happy to cater to a vegetarian diet and I still got to taste 6 delicious local foods. Next time I return to NYC I will try one of the other tours!
