Fantastic tour!

I highly recommend doing a food tour as one of your "must do's" in New York City! We are from Canada and this was our 3rd trip to the big apple and the food tour is always a highlight! Our tour guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and the food was out of this world! ☺

We loved the tour with Susan and learned so much about the area. It's a great way to get to know a part of the city.

Very interesting, great food and a fun adventure

This was a great way to learn more about a community-it's history, people and food. We enjoyed it so much, we went back another day to explore on our own. There is a lot of food-we were stuffed. It's mostly walking, but with some sitting, and the time flew by. We look forward to checking out the other tours on future visits.

Food was great. Lovers of Bob Dylan rejoice!
Fri, Dec 19, 14   12:30 PM sunburstali Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The food was amazing! The sights we saw were interesting but there was a big focus on pop culture that I didn't get, I must be too young. It felt like everytime we turned a corner, we got more information on Bob Dylan, and I can't name one of his songs. Stallone movies, Reiner movies, just old movies that I have not seen were constantly mentioned. My parents recommended this tour for me, and I can see why they loved it.

Older people, you will probably enjoy. Younger people, the food is good, but you may be able to find something else

Great food, amazing history!

Although the food was amazing ( and there is LOTS of it so don't eat before), our favourite part was learning about the area from a great tour guide (and history of the city) - and we had the chance to ask all questions and have them answered very thoroughly! She was well prepared and very professional - I would recommend the tour 100%.

great time. we were a group of 7 women celebrating a birthday. We all loved learning about greenwich village and try some delicious local restaurants. Tour guide was great and informative. Perfect mixture of learning about the neighborhood, trying great food and just having a fun day.

The tour was one of the highlights of the trip. My group was looking for something different as we have visited all the major NYC sights several times and this tour was just what we wanted. Our guide was informative, personable and fun. The food was delicious at every stop.

Such a fun experience!

We took the Heart of the Village tour on Monday, December 8th. Susan, our guide, was a gem and made the tour so interesting and informative. Food was great (Cuban food was the BEST!) and despite it being freezing cold, the entire group had a great time. I highly recommend and will do a different tour next time I'm in town.
