Great tour, with history and wonderful food.

Our guide, Susan, was charming. She knew the area very well, and provided such interesting history, and she was so fascinating talking about the architecture in the area. I've never really been that interested in architecture. Who knew that a "food tour" would also teach me about architecture? She pointed out several places that we visited later, including a jazz club and a coffee store. We not only had a great time on the day of the tour, we totally enjoyed the area when we came back several evenings later. We had no idea what a fun and "happening" part of Manhattan this was! The food on the tour was really delicious - just right for people who are coming with an appetite. We are "foodies" and we love variety and spice and new flavours, and this tour provided all of that.

Highly recommend this tour.

Took my wife and two teenage children on this tour. We had previously attended the Greenwich Village Tour. We enjoyed this almost as much as the Original Greenwich Village tour. There was plenty of food and our tour guide was very well informed. As a person who grew up in New York, I feel as if I am really starting to get to know this part of the City. My teenage children enjoyed the tour as well.

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.
