City Experiences Announces its First U.S. Food Tour in NYC

City Experiences has launched its first U.S. food tour offered by international tour provider Devour Tours, extending the company’s land-based portfolio of offerings in New York City. The “Greenwich Village NYC Food Tour” takes guests on a culinary journey through Manhattan’s West Village, featuring family-run eateries that have shaped the culture of the historic neighborhood.

The “Greenwich Village NYC Food Tour” joins City Experiences’ portfolio of offerings in New York City including Statue City Cruises, ferry service to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, City Cruises New York, dining and sightseeing cruising from Chelsea, amongst others. 

The three-hour "Greenwich Village NYC Food Tour" includes nine food tastings at seven locally run bistros and restaurants in the west side of Lower Manhattan from Washington Square Park to Bleeker Street. Visitors can learn about the area’s immigrant heritage and meet the families who have kept their traditions alive across generations, all while tasting authentic Italian food.

The tour begins in Washington Square Park. Guests will learn the story of this neighborhood’s Italian heritage, starting with the first taste of the tour: fried arancini from a family-run shop. Next, they will head to a handmade pasta shop that’s been run by the same family for over a century and sample their cheese ravioli made by the same traditional manual pasta-cutting machine that has been in use since 1906. The next stop is a family-run café known for its imports of Italian coffee, followed by a visit to a pizza joint. Guests will then return to the shop that served the fried arancini, learn about the family that has run the place for five generations, and pick up some of their signature items. Later, they will sample a meatball from a hot spot that opened in the 1990s and follow it up with an olive oil tasting led by their guide. The tour ends with dessert—pastries and gelato.

Devour Tours joined City Experiences in 2021 as part of the global experience provider Walks. Devour Tours introduces guests to authentic local cuisine and culture with a range of curated excursions.
