Great tour! We thoroughly enjoyed our guide and all the wonderful places we went. The food samples are tasty and filling. We ended up coming back to the Meat Packing District for dinner after a suggestion from our guide.

Excellent Tour

Our tour guide, Cindy, was very knowledgeable about this area (Chelsea) and knew quite a few people as we went on the tour. She pointed out a lot of interesting facts in the Chelsea Market (you have to go on the tour to find out what they are though (<:) as well as showing up parts of the Meatpacking District (even found out about a few places that were used in Sex and the City - the tv show, not the movie). We definitely had enough items to sample and everything was great. It's very easy to find via subway. If you select this tour, you will not be disappointed. I am a picky eater myself and I had no problems trying anything that was offered.

Chelsea Mkt / Meatpacking Dist Food Tasting Tour Is Great But, I Liked The Original Greenwich Village Food and Culture Walking Tour Better.

Chelsea was great!

My husband and I really enjoyed our tour with our leader Cindy. She had a great deal of knowledge of the market and the area that we toured. We saw a part of New York that we would not have seen if it were not for the tour. It made us venture out of the area we stayed in and see a place that was totally different. The market was very unique and memorable. The food on the tour was great and also things that we probably wouldn't have tried on our own. It was worth the time and effort and Cindy is a great guide! I would take another of their walking tours on a future trip. T & R Berry

Great historical tour with some great tastes of NY
Thu, Jul 24, 08   11:00 AM Sundberg Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Our tour guide was very knowledgable about NY and the history. We loved the Meat-packing district, and ended up going back there for lunch a couple of times. The local, young businesses were accommodating for our group and the tastes of their wares was impressive and brought us back for more. After the tour we went back to buy gifts and souvenirs for friends and family. We visited Chelsea Market twice more after our tour. We would highly recommend it to anyone -- locals or visitors in the area. The tour group was small (16) and it was fun to share notes with them about what to see, etc.

A must see and do in New York

This is our second Foods Tour in New York and by far the best! Our guide, Ed Carabella was informative, entertaining and catered to the groups needs. The variety of stops, the sample of foods and the information about the places was fantastic! Chelsea Market is an artisan boutique market for food and the variety and creativity of the vendors made this a unique experience. The sample sizes were more than adequate and certainly encouraged the participants to want more and go back. Our group stated that this was a great culmination to our New York visit.
