Great Tour for Foodies

This is such a great tour for both native New Yorkers and for out of town folks. There is such a rich history at the Chelsea Market and it's vendors as well as the Meatpacking District. The pace of the tour is great and the activities include tastings at some of New York's best. The Highline is a fantastic venue and despite the unexpected snowy weather we got while we were there, it was still a great tour - inside and outside! We'd even consider repeating it again!

Good but not great

Enjoyed this tour but liked the Greenwich village tour better. The guide makes all the difference and while ours was good, she was not great. Would definitely still do another tour with this company.

My wife and I enjoyed the tour primarily because of the excellent guide-Kirt. He was knowledgable entertaining and engaging. The food aspect was fine- not exceptionable.

Too LONG

a good guide, interesting places, very diverse groups (more than 1/2 non english speaking)..... but much too much waiting around....... I would have been happier to see less..... a happy 2 hr. tour is better for me than a tiring 3 hrs. +

Informative and interesting but too long

Went on the Chelsea Market tour and overall enjoyed the experience. The food portion was ok and the history was very interesting. It was a fun way to see the area. The only complaint were the two restaurants that were visited. This seemed to be a time filler and advertisement for the chef/owners. it was unnecessary to go inside the restaurant if there was no food portion.

The tour was great - amazing history, amazing amounts and quality of food, and our tour guide (Kurt) was just fantastic! Can't wait to come back to NYC and take a couple more tours with this company and Kurt.

Chelsea Market Meatpacking Dist. Tour was great!

In a nutshell, we loved this tour! This is the third Foods of New York Tour we have taken and once again they have hit a home run with the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District Tour. Our guide, Diana, was wonderful. She was both entertaining and extremely well versed in every aspect of the tour, including the history and cultural aspects of the market and the surrounding Meatpacking area. We sampled foods from a wide variety of food shops and restaurants in and around the Chelsea Market -- all of which were absolutely delicious! To top the great food off, we gained facinating insights into the development of the businesses, artwork and architecture in the marketplace and the surrounding area.

Food tours a must in NYC!

I have traveled to NCY numerous times and did the Chelsea Market and Greenwich Village tours. They are a must do! You learn so much history while sampling many great foods. But the best part is learning about a part of this vast city and then being able to go back and visit at your leisure. After my Chelsea Market tour, I went immediately back to shop and then took my husband back the next day. Each time I go back to NYC, I will visit these food tour locations. Daryl was a fantastic guide; enthusiastic, funny and kind. Thank you food tours of NY. Looking forward to the next tour:)
