Good Food and Good History of the Chelsea Market

The Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District Food Tour was well worth the time and effort. The market itself is a very interesting place with a lot of history and becomes the main character on the tour. Even if you have visited the market before you will gain a new appreciation for it once having been on this tour. You also get a small taste of the High Line park, which cuts right over the market. This is perfect for any public space or architecture lover in your group. Over all the Foods of New York tours are outstanding every time, and this one is no exception.

Fun and Informative

You will NOT be disappointed with this tour. The food sampling was amazing and our guide Cindy was absolutely the best! She provided us with lots of great information about Chelsea Market and there was not a dull moment because of her witty dialogue. From the moment we met her till we said good bye, she made this tour one of the best parts of our trip to NYC!

Very good guide, liked what he did, so it made it fun. try some new foods and some old favorites. The chocolate milk was like the old days on the farm. Would recommend this for a day in the city.

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.

Want more on Food, less on history

I thought that the tour was great. The only recommendation that I would make is that more focus could have been directed to the food and restaurants instead of the history of the area. This isn't to say that the tour wasn't enjoyable; my group had a great time and appreciated everything about it. But if we were to take the tour again (a definite consideration) we'd hope for more focus on the food. And maybe some more of it too!

Fantastic NYC tour and tour guide!

This Chelsea market walking tour was the best $49 (ea) we ever spent on something like this...our guide was fantastic...he made it incredibly fun, entertaining and informative for the full 3 hours. 5 minutes from its start, he had everyone in our group knowing each other's names and where we were all from. By the end of it we all felt like new friends.... My mom and I went to together and we both love to cook, so this was a really special thing to do together. It's definitely not for kids unless they are learning to cook - maybe around age 10 and upward and definitely not small children. For adults, it was wonderful and we had a ball! What's better than laughing, (our guide was one of the funniest, brightest guides I've ever seen), tasting amazing foods and making new friends over great food with the best NYC tour guide ever?? Nothing! I can't wait to bring my husband next time and I've highly recommended it to other friends and family for a great NYC thing to do!

I have taken this tour before but loved Kurt's enthusiastic version. He remembered everyone's name and where they were from. Kurt was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting or living in NYC.
