For locals and out of towners

I live within walking distance of the Chelsea Market and frequently shop there. My out of town family are not so fortunate, so I thought the tour would be interesting for them. Surprisingly, it was just as interesting and enjoyable for me. Our tour guide, Cindy,was fabulous. She knew the area, the architecture and the history of the market, the meat packing district and the High Line. and oh yes, the tastings were also great. I plan on doing this tour again when other guests come this summer.

We had a great time! Our tour guide was outstanding! The history alone would have been worth the tour, but the food was great too. We would do this again without hesitation.

chelsea market, while amazing, is not something that can truly be tackled on your own. our guide, kurt, in addition to being extremely well-informed as far as history past and present, was witty and entertaining and organized, with an uncanny ability to remember all of the names of the 17 people on our tour. both inside the market, out on the high-line and the surrounding streets, he was an unending font of information. honestly, i can't say enough how great the tour and tour guide were and would -- and have already -- wholeheartedly recommend it!! did i say awesome? awesome. really.

A friend gifted the tour to us as an engagement present earlier in the year, and we finally had a chance to attend. What a great gift it made! The food was delicious, the host was entertaining and accommodating, the historical knowledge gave us a fascinating new perspective. Would definitely recommend!

This tour was a lot of fun. Although I've been to NYC many times, I learned a lot that I never knew before. The food was great and we were definitely full by the end! Good variety of locations and got to see two Iron Chef restaurants too.

We took a food tour in NYC for the first time on Saturday. We were six women, friends and co-workers who attended. We had the pleasure of an excellent tour guide named Darryl. He explained not only the tour of the market with its excellent shops but also he gave us a lot of history of the market and the surrounding area. We tasted such delicious foods and treats. We had sufficient time to browse the shops during the tour. Darryl really was very entertaining and fun to be on the tour with. I would definitely suggest the tour to anyone, native New Yorkers like us or tourists the like. It was not only delicious but we also learned some interesting history and the day was full of a lot of laughs!!!

We did this to celebrate a birthday and it was a lot of fun. Our tour guide knew his stuff and was hilarious. Oh, and the food was great too. We will be coming back to the area again to keep trying different foods.
