What You Can Expect

New York's West Village Food Tour

Take a delicious walk through New York's West Village

Experience the multicultural flavor of the West Village on this tasty, 3-hour 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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

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.

Loved this tour! Plenty of sampling along the way so do not eat prior to the tour and definitely try the caramels at the coffee meeting place. We had a great day and the tour guide was a lot of fun, we would highly recommend this tour!

Our guide Ian was great. Good personality and knowledgeable. Food was also very good. Would have liked to stop somewhere for beer or wine after the first place perhaps at the artichoke pizza place.
