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:)

From the first 2 minutes when our guide, Kirk, had memorised 12 participants names and their country of origin, (as well as the 4 people - and their country of origin - WHO HADN'T EVEN ARRIVED!!!), he had us "eating" out of his hand. His enthusiasm was infectious, his local and food knowledge extraordinary, and his delivery flawless. A true professional. Would recommend this tour to anyone interested in this area of New York - the three hours flew by and we all wanted more!

Absolutely fantastic, great fun and great food

This tour is amazing - our 18yo hip dude son, his elder equally cool dude surfie type brother and their aging parents found this to be an unusual family experience because we all loved it (and no one was lying about that!). The food, the places and the humour, stories, wit and knowledge of Kurt our guide made it such a laugh. We had thought 3 hours would be too long but no way - it's not long enough. And when the "spiel" says you'll eat you better believe it; you will eat, so don't eat before you go and you won't need much for dinner either! This tour is everything everyone says it is and much more. During the tour we checked out Del Posto, a truly beautiful upmarket restaurant, and the husband and I went back there a few days later for dinner - OMG, the best dinner I have ever had (and that's saying something). So ... put this on your "must do" list.

Really fun but could be improved

Marketplace was great, really enjoyed all establishments. Guide was very informative and entertaining and also attentive. Improvements I would suggest offering something to drink with tastings. A bottle of water seemed cheap. And last stop, although nice, could have offered a bit more. It would have been better to end tour there with a light lunch. Could have included salad and bread at least. I would have gladly purchased a glass of wine to finish off.
