Great Tour

This was my second FoodTour. I enjoyed the first one so much, I brought my husband to this one. While in NYC, we did a lot - Wicked, Jersey Boys, Statute of Liberty, etc., but upon returning home, when someone asked my husband what his favorite thing in NYC was - he didn't even hesitate - "The Food Tour". Thanks - he's hard to please - it was great. New Orleans, LA

The Chelsea Marketplace tour is without a doubt worth every cent. Not only did we get to sample delicious foods from a variety of businesses, but we were also fortunate enough to have an excellent tour guide. She gave us excellent background information injected with enthusiasm and humor. What a great shopping and tasting experience!

I enjoyed the recent tour very much. The tour guide did a very good job with the history of Chelsea Market, and the presentation of the tour with a sense of humor. He related well to the tour goers, as well as, the business establishments. The length of the tour and number in the group was appropriate. The tastings were great. I will definitely return to shop at Chelsea Market and recommend the tour to friends.

This was my second tour, good as the first

I had previously been on the Greenwich Village Tour and have been back for the Chelsea Mkt / Meatpacking Dist Food Tasting Tour. The tour should really be called simply the Chelsea Mkt Tour -- The Meat Packing District was so-so and very little would have been lost if bypassed altogether -- that is unless they decide to put Pastis on tour. The Chelsea Wine Vault is not on the tour and that is a real shame. The tour guide as always was awesome -- funny, knowledgeable and kept up a nice pace -- we were in stiches laughing from the jokes for most of the tour. I wish they would put the FoodTV Kitchen as part of the tour, that would be a blast to see. I have will continue to recommend the tours unless I hear the quality drops. While the tickets may be expensive, I have found places on my two tours for which I will be returning for some of their fine food and I now have a better more comfortable feel of the Greenwich Village and Chelsea Market that I feel I have someplace to always return to see. I have a lot of family that comes to visit who always wants to see NYC, beside the standard places (which I have seen hundreds of times) this tour gives me and my out of town family something new and interesting to see that not everyone knows about -- all in all, it was blast and had great time

This was a great tour with lots of food tastings. Since it is mostly inside, I would strongly recommend it for the winter months.

My boyfriend was out of town on a business trip and in town were his parents. I wasn't sure what to do to share NYC with them but knew that our interests included seeking new and different culinary delights as well as learning more about the city. The Chelsea Market/ Meatpacking tour was the perfect idea! We had an excellent time learning about the history of the building, the stores, and the area. Our tour guide Ed was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and entertaining. He kept everyone in the group interested and gave us tidbits about everything from the owners to what kind of growth to expect in the area. We had an excellent time and recommend this to locals and tourists. You won't be disappointed with the amount of food you get to try and you will find the 3 hrs you spend is well worth it!

Our tour guide, Kurt, was funny, informative and energetic. We got everything we wanted from that tour and more. Don't forget not to eat before you go. There is more than enough food to fill you up. I recommend this tour to all.
