Our guide was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the history of the area as well as the food samples. There was lots of food ,almost too much.My husband and I believe the tour to be one of the many highlights of our trip.

I got tickets for myself and two friends for a Food Walk during our stay in New York. I'm so happy I did. We all felt that this was the highlight of a wonderful exciting few days. I thought that this would be a fun thing to do. It was so much more. We tasted lovely food, learned so much about the area we visited and Diana made it exciting with her wonderful energy. .In the next week or so, I'm going to arrange to go on a food walk in my own city. I expect that I'll find a friend to come with me.........Thanks for turning me on to Food Walks Diana.

Interesting tour of Chelsea Market and a quick peek at two "celebrity" restaurants make the tour worthwhile, but the level of energy brought by our (female) guide really made the tour stand out. It falls a bit short as a "food" experience, but overall interesting, lots of fun and a great way to spend a couple of hours.

My tour guide Kurt was FANTASTIC ! He brought the group together instantly and made the tour entertaining and informative. I would definitely recommend it to friends but am sure the guide was instrumental in the success of the tour. There was a good balance of factual information and fun and i certainly felt like i knew the area well on completion of the tour ! Request Kurt as your guide !

Different than expected but enjoyable

When I reviewed the ad for the Chelsea Market Meatpacking District Food and Culture Walking Tour my eyes zeroed in on "Food" and "Walking Tour" and seemed to discount the rest. For the first half of the event we only travelled 75 feet and had samples from 5 vendors. The food was good don't get me wrong but it was all confined to one area to start which was too confining and slow moving for our likes. We eventually left the market and walked through the nearby streets ending up at a lovely italian restaurant. The true success of the event was the information shared by our personable and zany guide CINDY. She was great!

upbeat, good tastes, good intro to the market

Tour guide was upbeat and entertaining, tastes were good and seeing the shops great - liked the walk in the Highland district. The tour covers a lot and goes quickly - best to find time to go back and re-explore. I'm not into sweet so some of the tasting didn't thrill me but the overview worked well.

I don't really know where to start but I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS. The food was great, the tour was great and our tour guide was even greater. I loved Cindy, she was so funny, dedicated and she knew so much about the Market and the Meatpacking District. It was a great tour and I will never forget it :-) Love from AMSTERDAM :-)

Food was amazing... Shops were interesting. Shop keepers spoke to us and told us about their products. Kurt kept the tour fun and interesting with lots of local color. Discount coupons for the shops visited. Really enjoyed our tour... going to another next time!!
