Experience the multicultural flavor of the West Village on this afternoon walking tour. Make your way to Bleecker Street on the west side of Manhattan’s famed Greenwich Village neighborhood to meet up with your guide, a passionate local foodie. Feel the energetic hum of the area, which is home to an eclectic mix of restaurants, cafés, shops, and music venues.

Stop in at six renowned local eateries to sample their finest fare, including Hudson Bagels and Mauman’s Falafel — the city’s oldest falafel joint. Get a taste of New York’s Italian heritage with cheesy pizza, housemade salami at Faicco's Italian Specialties, and creamy cannoli at Pasticceria Bruno, which was a champion on Food Network Challenge: Sugar Adventures. Combined, the tastings make up a satisfying sampler lunch. 

As you make your way from stop to stop, learn the bohemian history of this unique neighborhood that was once home to musicians including Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Jimi Hendrix, and Beat writers Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. Your guide will point out their former homes and hangouts, as well as the apartment of fictional chef Monica from Friends. After walking around 2.5 miles (4 km), say farewell to your group and your guide at La Guardia Place near the original departure point.

Russell was incredibly informative and full of knowledge about this area of town. He patiently answered all of our questions and you could tell he wanted us to fall in love with this part of the city. My favorite place was Beeker street pizza. Greg came and met with us and told us stories about his beloved restaurant. It was the best pizza I’ve ever had. Would highly recommend this tour.

I have no negative comments! Our Village Food Tour was everything we expected and more! Fantastic group of 13 "tourists" and 1 fun, knowledgeable guide. The relaxing pace allowed us to visit and interact with others in the group. Our guide, Alec, gave us interesting info on the local history as well as the current Village scene. The food was a delicious dynamic cultural experience. Just loved this NYC experience.

It was a cold morning in NY City but we braved the cold and met with the tour guide on time and ready to go. Tour guide was very personable and well versed in NY City. We had one other couple that joined us from Florida so the five of us shared stories and enjoyed our walk around the area. We went to very interesting stops for sampling of food. The stops were excellent with lots of food at each stop. When the tour was finished we were more than full!!! Was a good trip but would have been great if it was warmer.
