Our tour guide, Sapphra, was charming, enthusiastic, and extremely knowledgeable of the area and the foods associated with the area. My wife and I learned a lot, and even went back to the village today to sample some more of what was to be enjoyed in Greenwich Village. Very nice.

Excellent cultural tour with delicious tastings

When I came across the Central Village/SoHo Food & Culture Tour online, it immediately drew my attention. I had seen many walking tours before but never saw one that incorporated food tastings. I really enjoyed the experience of walking around an area and seeing it with other eyes once the guide tells you the historical and cultural aspects about the location. Otherwise you might stroll around by yourself and think "oh, this is a nice area" but not really get to know all the captivating details and a real understanding of how the area came into being what it is now.

The food that was served was excellent and I loved that they could accommodate my vegetarian eating habits as well. It was very nice to get advice on where you can get some truly good food because as a tourist you often go to places and look around to see where you might want to eat and as frequently can get disappointed or drawn into "tourist traps" where you pay a lot of money for mediocre food. After this tour, however, I had over 20 good places to choose from which is great!

Our guide, Susan, who is originally from New York, seemed very knowledgeable and likeable and made this a very pleasant 3 hours. Overall I had a fantastic time with wonderful food and recommendations on where to go for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

Took the Greenwich Tour In September '09 with friends and this time took my family. Two teenage girls and my husband loved it. Said the tour was the highlight of our 2-day stay in NY. The Meatpacking District/Chelsea Market tour is also fantastic.

Our guide made the tour so interesting. Aside from the fine samples and history of the foods and food merchants, our tour included a visual treat in the beautiful restrooms of Morimoto's Restaurant. Chelsea Market will definitely be a primary stop on my next trip to NYC.

I loved the details and info. that Rahim gave us about the Village/SoHo. The food was delicious and certainly enough to fill you up. Learning about some of the family businesses and sights that we saw were very interesting. Rahim is a fantastic guide and very polite to the surrounding people in the community. You are very fortunate to have Rahim on your staff.

I LOVED this tour

This would be my most highly recommended tour for New York. It was fun and educational and we got to taste some wonderful bites. Also got to meet several interesting people from around the US and other parts of the world. It lasted 3 hours, but I would have enjoyed another 2 hours more! Our tour guide was great. When I go back to NYC I will definitely plan the other tours with this company, and would probably go on this tour again. I LOVED it.

Guide was fun and informing. Sephra (sp?) was terrific as a guide. The food selections were varied and interesting as was the history of neighbourhood. Came back to the neighbourhood (for dinner and to buy stuff to take home to Canada,) in the days following based on the great samples of food.

Thank you Susan, for a wonderful afternoon! We had a great time learning about the central village and eating our way through it. I am already coming up with plans to head back to try the recommended places again! Our guide was knowledgable and lovely and the food was terrific and plenty of it. Thank you again for an amazing time!

The best time we have had in NYC...

We visit the city regularly with family and friends, but, we have never made it into Greenwich. This tour gave us history, culture, community and food. Raheem was a knowledgeable and a great story-teller. He made a connection with each person in the tour group. We did go back for dinner the next night to one of the places we tasted. This was 1 tour we all unanimously agreed was the best time we had in NYC.

It was really fun and informative. We are very interested in everything regarding food and this was very interesting. It was a very hot day and our guide took very good care of us, waiting for shade to give us informations. The architectur and history parts were also great.
