The food tour that we did was just wonderful. Each one of us talk about how the tour guide was very good. He made the tour so exciting. This was the best tour that we have taken. I would recommend it to any one.

This is another tour by the company which is excellent value. Having taken the Greenwich Village wine and food tour which was outstanding, this tour whilst not (nor could be in my opinion) the equal it never-the-less gave a great deal of information and exposure to the Chelsea Market and to a limited extent some surrounding areas. The guide was enthausiastic and knowledgeable and engaged with our diverse group in a friendly and easy fashion. I think the initial remark that tips would be appreciated but not necessary at the end of the tour was a bit tacky and really wasn't needed.

The tour was fantastic in every aspect. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area with plenty of interesting facts. He was very approachable for questions and spent lots of time with the group. The tour itself was well thought out. The food tastings were delicious and varied, which kept our interest level high. We enjoyed being able to go into each store, learn about its place in the food industry, and then sample what they have to offer. After the tour was through we were full, and so there was no question we got our money's worth. The second half, the Meatpacking district, was likewise fun. I would have liked to sample the food in the restaurants we entered (Del Posto, Buddha Bar, etc), but just learning about them was a good experience. If there is one complaint, it's that we did not know about the tour sooner. More marketing would be great! We are definitely going to recommend this to our friends.

Our guide Kurt went over and above the call of duty to give us and the rest of our group a wonderful experience. The things we saw and tasted were puctuated by the information and experience that Kurt brought to the tour. I would definitely not only recomend the tour to anyone who is a "foodie" but I will take the tour again the next time I am in NYC! A wonderful experience--a highlight of our week!
