My two friends and I did the Central Village/SoHo Food and Culture Tour on our first day in New York. We had a fabulous time exploring the streets and trying a great variety of delicious foods. You must have a mojito at Cuba Restaurant and a lovely way to finish the tour was with a rich cake at Once Upon A Tart. We would definitely do another food tour on our next trip.

My daughter and I went on this tour and had a great time. The restaurants sampled were great and provided a "taste" of what the area has to offer. The tour guide was very knowledgeable not only of the restaurants but also of the history of the area and the restaurants that we visited. The tour guide learned it was my daughter's birthday and surprised her with a birthday dessert at one of the restaurants. I would definitely do another tour.

This was a great tour! I went on the Chelsea Market one a couple of years ago so knew what to expect but was still impressed. The whole tour was realxed but informative. The food was delicious and plentiful and the group was friendly - I was a lone Brit amongst a group of Americans! I now regularly recommend these tours to anyone holidaying in New York. It's a great way to get a different experience of the city.

This is the second time we've been with Rahim and he really knows his stuff. We had two elderly couples with us and he was extremely accomodating.

Our Central Village / SoHo "event" was a definite highlight of our visit to NYC. Big credit goes to Raheem who expertly guided us around Greenwich Village and SoHo. Anyone can take you on a tour of places; It takes a Raheem to make it an experience. We chose this particular tour because of the variety it offered. It didn't disappoint. We enjoyed the samples of Italian, Cuban, and Indian. It was not only delicious but educational as well. Most of all we enjoyed the history and backstories that Raheem shared. I have a whole new appreciation for the Village and SoHo.

We really enjoyed Susan as our tour leader. She provided a wealth of knowledge on the area as well as on the food itself. Her passion for the culture, history and food allowed us to experience it on a unique level. Her attitude was diffidently contagious. Would recommend everyone to learn and enjoy NYC on this level.
