This was a great tour. Our guide Darrell was wonderful, informative and full of energy. The tastings were delicious and filling. Its a great way to explore the market and try things you may not normally just walking through. We are now planning our next tour of Greenwich Village - can't wait!

I can always expect a great time on one of FoNYT and this Chelsea Mkt. tour was no exception! The tour guide Curt was so informative and very entertaining. The food was delicious and more than enough for a diversified yummy lunch. Can't wait to take my next Food Of New York Tour. It's the best!!!!!!

I did the Chelsea food tour with a group of six friends as part of a bachelorette party. All the girls thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was a nice balance of history, food, and fun. Our tour guy was the best --- highly recommend Kurt. He memorized everyone's name and made it very personal. Great time. Highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the variety of foods and the tour guide. I think the tour guides are the key to the experience and Bob was great. Enthusiastic, knowledgable and entertaining. We were 3 couples, doesn't fit in the gender box???

Informative and Fun experience

We had a few relatives visiting from out of town and took the tour. Everyone enjoyed it, including the 13 year old. Probably could have used 1 additional opportunity to sit for 5-10 minutes. 3 hours, plus the wait for the tour is a long time to stand with a short 20 minute sit at the end. Our guide, Chris, was fantastic. He was personable, very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He had a great ability to keep people engaged and good knowledge of the area. His talks did not sound as if the exact same words had been said over and over. Based on other people's comments in the group, they agreed. My relatives enjoyed this so much, they want to do another one the next time they visit!

Snacking our way through charming Chelsea Market

This was my second food tour and both times I have had Kurt as our guide. He sets the tone for an informative and wonderfully entertaining snacking tour of New York City neighborhoods from past to present day. Chelsea Market is an amazing place that should not be missed! It was a wet, blustery day so being inside for most of the tour was perfect. From chocolate milk and cupcakes to mini meat pies - every bite was amazing. A walk along the High Line helped the digestion before the final tasting of the day in the Meatpacking District. The history surrounding this pocket of the city and it's transformation into one of today's coolest neighborhoods in New York , makes for a fascinating, tasty and fun day.

Disappointed

It was very crowded. There really was not much food for tasting. We were all hungry after the tour. I was was extremely disappointed and do not recommend this particular tour.

My husband and I treated ourselves to a date without our 2 young children. We both appreciate delicious and unique foods. Our guide, Diana, was highly knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and we had a terrific time! We went home and bought gift certificates for our parents to go to a food tour and we are hoping they ask us to join them!
