Awesome location and tour

My husband and our teenage son and I took this tour and got to taste approximately ten different items from various markets and stores. All the places were first rate and the items were very tasty. We went back after the tour and purchased several gifts and checked out some areas that we had not had time for. Well worth the time and money.

As native New Yorkers (from Long Island) we had never been on this type of tour in NY - we were very pleased with the guide, loved learning about the Chelsea Market and surrounding area and had a lovely 3 hours on a Sunday morning - what could be better!

This tour was great. We had some great samples from stores in the Chelsea Market and one restaurant in the old meat packing district. They mention the Iron chef restaurants, but we only went into one , no tasting there. Our guide, Barri, was great and knew a lot about the area. We also went upon the "Highline" this was great as well. The tour was the full 3 hours, a lot of walking but one of the best tours that we took while in New York.

Thoroughly enjoyable tour

Our tour was great fun! I cant remember who led the tour, may have been Curt, but he was full of knowledge about the market itself and the providores, and his humour throughout kept us going through the many tastings. Time flew by and before we knew it we were eating at Macelleria. I had in Morimoto for a bathroom stop, pressing all the buttons!!! The highline was definitely worth the visit and it looked like a relaxing place to be especially the day we were there as it was lovely and sunny. Foods of New York Tours was a recommendation and I will certainly recommend them to anyone going to NYC.

Chelsea Meatpacking food tour w/ Daryl was amazing

We just did the Chelsea Meatpacking food tour with Daryl and it was amazing. He knew everyone's name and never lost anyone in our fairly large group. He was knowledgeable and funny. The market is amazing and the places he took us to were outstanding. He even talked his way into a couple of bonus sample places. Then we walked a portion of the High Line which was awesome, we went back and walked the whole thing after the tour. We ended up in the Meatpacking district which is where the tour ended. We took the Greenwich tour last year and it was very good. We would highly recommend this one.

Our tour guide was fun and enthusiastic and we enjoyed a little history lesson along with great samples from the Chelsea Market and local restaurants. We had a beautiful day for experiencing the High Line...and caught a glimpse of Chef Bobby Flay and wife strolling it as well!

One of the best tours we have taken!

A coworker told me how much she enjoyed her Greenwich Village tour. We were visiting my son in NYC and I let him chose from the tours. He chose the Chelsea Park and Meat Packing district where he wanted to take us anyway. The tour was amazing. We had a fantastic guide, Darren who was funny, full of history knowledge and just made the tour a great experience. The tastings were a great pairing and we had a bonus tasting of ravioli at a local Italian restaurant, which we called a bonus. There was no shortage on the food and we were given enough short time limits to make purchases either at the tasting site or a shop close by. I would highly recommend this tour. We are planning on the Greenwich tour next time in town.
