Foods of NY Tours can't be beat!

My husband & I decided to take the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District Tour since we did not know the area well. 3 years ago we had done a tour of the Village with Foods of NY & it had been fantastic. Well, today's tour was no exception. I was so excited to see that our tour guide would be Bari, who had guided us through the Village 3 years earlier. She is a remarkable guide, full of energy & information. The eight tastings left us very full! There is more than enough food to fill you up for hours. I especially enjoyed the history behind the shops/restaurants we visited. Bari also escorted us to High Line Park which I had been very curious to explore. After the tour we went back to the market to explore on our own & to shop. A wonderful day in the city!

Darryl, our guide, was very informative and enthusiastic informing us of the history of the Market area, havining carefully arranged a wide variety of tastings, including many visits to interesting stores and restaurants in the Chelsea Market area. We walked briefly on the High Line as he described the changes in this area over the past years and how it has become the destination it is today. A really marvelous tour!

We shared Diana's enthusiasm for the transformation of this part of New York City in the last decade or so and also enjoyed the different tastings.....would certainly recommend this tour.

We did the Greenwich food tour a few years ago, loved it so decided to try this one. It was wonderful and we loved Diana. She was so knowledgeable about the area and made the tour fun. We had been at Chelsea Market before but now we know the history of how it became the wonderful place it is!!!!

Want more on Food, less on history

I thought that the tour was great. The only recommendation that I would make is that more focus could have been directed to the food and restaurants instead of the history of the area. This isn't to say that the tour wasn't enjoyable; my group had a great time and appreciated everything about it. But if we were to take the tour again (a definite consideration) we'd hope for more focus on the food. And maybe some more of it too!

Wonderful Snapshot of Chelsea and Meatpacking Dist

Our tour guide was fantastic and gave us so much interesting information about the places we were visiting. Knowing the history of the area really contributed to the experience of enjoying the food. What we sampled was from a variety of places and we enjoyed all of it! The portions were very generous so make sure you are hungry when you begin the tour. Everyone we met along the way was friendly and made us feel very welcome in their shop or cafe. This tour would make a great gift for a local foodie as well as for anyone else visiting NYC.
