We only booked on one food tour because we were worried that if we had to cancel our trip, we would not have backup from Zerve. We made the trip, and the Chelsea tour was wonderful. We would have booked the rest but they were full. So, if you know you are definitely coming to NY, book all their tours. You won't regret it. It definitely beats looking at the gazilion Picassos at Moma and the Met. Our guide Kurt, was charming, did a great job.

I went on the other food tours and this one was just as good as the other ones. Our tour guide Curt was really knowledgeable and pretty funny too. I would seriously recommend these tours to anyone visiting to NYC. It's also a good way to find out more about the neighbourhoods. The tasting portions were very generous as well. All I have to say is it's worth your buck!

Green Village was my first choice, however, I think this is better tour for me. I won't go in deep Chelsea Market since only few info and limited day in my NY trip. Me,from Taiwan, and my friend, who came from the UK, had great time. We even changed our itinerary to visit Chelsea dis again. We had inexpensive oyster in lobster place and a great dinner in Pastis, the recommonded French bistro. It's really worth to participate if you want to experience some local taste. ^_^

As visitors to NYC this tour was a great way to discover a new area, and good shops and restaurants. The food tasting was really good too! The guide was really friendly and the group small enough to feel one got personal attention.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She guided us around with interesting facts about the Chelsea market and the vendors that were there. We got to see two Iron Chef restaurants which was quite a treat and got to taste new foods at the Chelsea Market. A great time was had by my husband and myself.

Entertaining and interesting overview of both Chelsea and Meat Packing District with nice samples from local stores which resulted in me going back to Chelsea Market several times to eat and drink. Guide was very helpful with other suggestions on where to go in the area.

We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone traveling to New York. It was very interesting and informative and a great opportunity to get a little insight and history on a most fascinating area of the city. Our guide, Darrel, was funny, knowledgeable, entertaining and gracious. He took our preferences into consideration and tailored the tour to suit the needs of the group. The tour was just the right combination of information, walking and great food.

This was the second tour I have taken with Foods of New York - and I have been lucky to have Kurt both times! Kurt is very enthusiastic and energetic - a great personality to discover this area. The markets were great and the food samplings were all delicious. We ended up going back to the market on our own and to one of the restaurants in the Meatpacking District for dinner a couple of weeks later. The tour is a great opportunity to get to know about stores and restaurants that you would not get by going it alone!
