What To Expect

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.

Andrea was very knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful tour of food. She took us to the best places to eat and had made prior arrangements so we did not have to wait for the food. We could not have asked for a better tour guide.

Group tour turned vip tour

First let me say that we were the only 2 on tour, being that it was a few days after New Year’s Day may have had something to do with it. Not complaining as our guide Jonathan was awesome (thank you J from K and B the 2 peeps who shared our snacks). Thank you Jonathan bridgette and I enjoyed the Jonathan experience!!! The best part of the tour was meeting Greg at bleeker street pizza, followed closely by his awesome slice of pizza (Nona maria grandma pizza) crispy crust and very tasty. Greg, thank you so much for being so kind to us. We really appreciated it and will come see you next time in New York if we’re here on a Friday.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you so much for the glowing review of our West Village food tour. We're thrilled to read you thought "Jonathan was awesome!" He loves guiding our guests to some of the best foods in Greenwich Village. Come eat with us on The Lower East Side the next time you're in town.
Highly recommend!!
Cindy_F, Dec 2022
Ross was a great tour guide! He took us all around the village and gave us great insight to its history. All of the food was excellent. This was our first food tour and it did not disappoint!
Great fun!
Jeanine_W, Dec 2022
We did the NY W Village Food Tour on December 2nd which happened to be my birthday. Our tour guide Jonathan did an outstanding job educating us on the history of the area and notable events that took place in the WV. Jonathan’s knowledge of the area was extensive and he was able to answer all of our questions with ease. Our tasting samples included pizza, rice balls, Thai dumplings, and falafel, and we finished up with gourmet cupcakes. I would be hard-pressed to identify a favorite because everything we tasted was excellent! The portions were small and we didn’t feel stuffed at the end of the tour. Our tour started at 11:00am and ended at 2:00 which gave us plenty of time to work up an appetite for a 7:00pm dinner. There’s always more to learn about the history of NYC and how neighborhoods evolved and transformed over the years and Jonathan did not disappoint! If you have an opportunity to do a Viator tour I’d say “do it”! And maybe you’ll be lucky to have Jonathan as your tour guide-you won’t regret it!

Lydia, our guide, was knowledgeable and so nice! The food was delicious and definitely not things we would have discovered on our own. We’re so thankful for this experience- for sure a highlight of our trip!

The food was great and the information as we walked was excellent! I really enjoyed the variety and effort to find shade and air conditioning as often as possible.
Don’t leave New York without this!
Vanessa_P, July 2022
We loved this tour! We were so lucky to have Adam as our guide! He was energetic, fun to listen to and full of knowledge. We loved the small little deli’s, pizza and Thai places with wonderful samples at each stop. The finale of the trip ended at Molly’s cupcakes! Adam also took us through some of the smaller streets in the village. He described architecture, history of some of the buildings, and examples of people who lived in that area at one time. This is the perfect tour to get a sampling of all of New York’s finest delicacies! Again, we highly recommend Adam as a guide. His endless knowledge and energy made this tour even more enjoyable!
Response from Host, July 2022
Thank you so much for the amazing 5 star review of our West Village food tour with Adam. It brings a smile to our faces to read you "loved this tour," and thought Adam was " energetic, fun to listen to and full of knowledge." Come eat with us on our Lower East Side food tour the next time you're in town.
West Village Food-a-Rama!
Kyle_C, June 2022
From start to finish, this food tour was delightful! Adam was a fantastic tour guide, and he provided us with super interesting information with his special New York flair! Every bite we took was fresh and delicious, and it was plentiful! Bleecker Street Pizza was the best we’d ever had, and the arancini at Faicco’s was my personal fave. We were stuffed by the end! So much fun…I highly recommend this tour!!
Great food and history of West Village

Adam did a great job lots of interesting facts fun stories - I used to live in the area and didn’t think I’d learn anything new but did and had grin and great food along the way - well done!
Fell in love on Beeker street. ❤️
Rachel_S, Nov 2021
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.
