Our tour guide, Bob was fabulous! He was a wealth of information regarding the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District. Bob's presentation was nicely paced and he obviously loves his job and New York! I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn some of the history behind NYC and taste some of what NYC has to offer! The portions were generous and we certainly didn't need lunch that day!

Great Tour

We really enjoyed our tour of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District. Our tour leader, Bob, was enthusiastic, informative and amusing, which I imagine might not be always easy to achieve, when he's probably done the tour many times before! This was my second tour, and my husbands first, (I did your Greenwich Village tour a couple of years ago with our daughter) and we chose this one as the majority of the tour was inside Chelsea Market. Being December, we were unsure what the weather would be like - a wise decision as it turns out because it was wet and cold.... Next time Chinatown! Many thanks.

Loved every minute of it!

My husband and I loved the tour, both the food and the fascinating information about the location history, food options, businesses selected, and general trivia and background. Our guide, Bob Gelber was knowledgeable about so much, that he was able to add color and interest to the tour and tailor his comments to our interests. We were surprised by the amount of food and quality of food we tasted...next time I probably would not eat breakfast before the tour. We are local (NJ) and learned so much more about this area of Manhattan that we did not know. We'll come back to explore it further another time. We now want to do all of the 5 food tours listed!

This is our third Foods of NY Tour. Our tour guide was quick witted, entertaining, and knowledgable. My disappointment with this tour was less food tasting than the others we have experienced. Overall would recommend!

Our fearless leader for the morning was Darryl. He did a great job telling us the history of the area and the many foods that were available with a great fun approach. He made us all feel like a group of old friends by the end of the tour. I would highly recommend this tour. I can't wait to try the Greenwich tour next time I vibist NYC.

Good Food and Good History of the Chelsea Market

The Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District Food Tour was well worth the time and effort. The market itself is a very interesting place with a lot of history and becomes the main character on the tour. Even if you have visited the market before you will gain a new appreciation for it once having been on this tour. You also get a small taste of the High Line park, which cuts right over the market. This is perfect for any public space or architecture lover in your group. Over all the Foods of New York tours are outstanding every time, and this one is no exception.

Our tour guide was Kurt. He remembered our names within minutes and provided a wonderful history of the area. He was very knowledgeable, funny and made everything interesting. The food was fabulous and we couldn't eat another bite!! We would definitely do another tour of a different area when we come back to the city!
