our whole family loved this tour. Our guide, Susan, was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Greenwich Village and food. The food samples were diverse and delicious. We'll do another food tour on our next visit to NYC.

Tour provided just the right amount of history and food for my son and me. We're locals and familiar with NYC but the mini tour and food was just a perfect mix of everything on a lovely September day. The tour guide, Barri, was very informed and got us from place to place comfortably and efficiently.

Raheem (sorry about the spelling) was an excellent guide! His knowledge of the area, great sense of humor and energy made for an entertaining experience. And the food stops were quite varied and delicious. Our fellow tour members were a very nice bunch which also added to the experience! I would definitely recommend this tour......especially with Raheem

Sue was a great guide; she provided lots of information about the village, and particularly its 60s history. The food was great, with wonderful variety.

Food was a little heavy

Our guide was very pleasant and interested in the neighborhood. The thing I didn't care for was the heaviness of the food. We started with a cheese and brisket sandwich that was good, but it was too filling to start. The tour also had a cheese pizza that was fine, but, again, very heavy. If you go, I would recommend eating no more than half of the portions.

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!
