Architecture very interesting; food too much.

The tour itself, with Cindy as our guide, was excellent. We learned a great deal of the history and architecture of the area. The food, while an important part of the tour, was too heavy and too much. A red velvet cupcake to start, followed by chocolate milk. Then a cheese tasting followed by a toasted cheese sandwich !! My arteries were screaming. Add a meat pie (sausage) then a pasta dish with oxtail ragout. The food was loaded with white carbs, sugar, salt and saturated fat. (Note: I am a Cardiologist who [unapologetically] specializes in preventing heart disease).

Diana, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. She is a local woman in love with the history of the area. I have taken many guided tours over the years, and this rank in my top ten. The food tasting was as good as the history. I am in NYC often and will definitely be signing up for other tours run by Diana's group.

The Chelsea Market food tour was great. Diana was our guide and she was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The food selections were varied and tasty. Many were items that I would never order on my own so tasting them was nice. This was my first tour with this company and I look forward to my next one. I would recommend this tour.

Lots of fun, interesting facts about the area and food businesses focused on and good eats. Already went back to a few places and want to have dinner at another spot that we stopped at. Guide was great - informative and entertaining. Definitely worth the price.

Cindy was absolutely amazing! She was extremely knowledgeable and was able to make it interesting for both tourists (my mother) and locals! I have already recommended this tour to a few people who have plans to visit.

We (two 60-something-year-old couples) enjoyed the tour given by the delightful Cindy. It was informative, fun and delicious! We hope to do the Greenwich Village tour next.

The tour guide, Kurt, was wonderful. If I knew that he was going to be my guide on other tours, I would absolutely sign up. I enjoyed the tour very much. I would gladly take another tour. Thanks Kurt for the fun.

The best NYC tours

My husband and I have been on a few Food Tours and every tour seems to be better than the last, if that's even possible! The tour guides are so knowledgable & Curt was the best yet! The tours are not only really fun & informative but delicious too. I recommend these tours to everyone from locals to visitors from everywhere. Just take the tour, any of them, you won't be disappointed.
