Guide was FABULOUS

Our guide made the tour so interesting. Aside from the fine samples and history of the foods and food merchants, our tour included a visual treat in the beautiful restrooms of Morimoto's Restaurant. Chelsea Market will definitely be a primary stop on my next trip to NYC.

Wonderful introduction to a NY neighborhood
Fri, Jun 4, 10   12:00 PM jodyclovis Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Other
Whether you're a first time visitor to New York City or not, this tour is a wonderful introduction to a neighborhood, its food, shops, and residents. The tour buses drive through here for a reason. But instead of being inside a bus, you can be mingling with the locals. Definitely worth the cost and time!

Great time!

We were a group of 4 -- 2 adults and 2 teen-agers -- and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the restaurants and menus, and she couldn't have been nicer or more enthuastic. Two of us are vegetarians, and I was impressed that the tour operators were able to arrange for food that we were able to eat. Some of the foods were unusual, but all of it was delicious, and filling. I would recommend this tour for anyone - tourists and New Yorkers alike. You would not be disappointed.

The best time we have had in NYC...

We visit the city regularly with family and friends, but, we have never made it into Greenwich. This tour gave us history, culture, community and food. Raheem was a knowledgeable and a great story-teller. He made a connection with each person in the tour group. We did go back for dinner the next night to one of the places we tasted. This was 1 tour we all unanimously agreed was the best time we had in NYC.

Great tour with excellent food tastings
Fri, May 28, 10   12:00 PM johnwolf Male Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
The tour was well planned considering it started at noon and most of the establishments had customers. Food tastings were all very good with absolutely no need for lunch following the tour. Would highly recomment.

Good Combination of Information and Entertainment

Good balance of food types in the tastings. Tour guide was sensitive to the effect of the very hot weather on the group. Guide was knowledgeable about the architecture and history of the district and imparted interesting information. We would have preferred fewer references to the Food Network but enjoyed her humor. The length of the tour was just about right; could have been 1/2 hr shorter. Would have preferred fewer people (10 rather than 15).

Had a great time!!!!!

We all had a great time on this tour. Our tour guide Raheem (sorry if it is spelled wrong) was very knowledgeable of the area, made great recommendations and was very relaxed. He took his time and never rushed us from one venue to the next. All of the tastings we indulged on were fantastic. Each one was unique and not your run of the mill fair. They all left a lasting impression, but I think the two that stand out the most for us were the bolognese and the ricotta cheese cake. We certainly did not walk away hungry. The cultural side of the tour beyond the food was quite interesting. We found it very easy to put ourselves in the past with all of the great writers and musicians of the different times and wonder what it was like. Greenwich village and Soho is such a great area of the city. We can't wait to go back. We have already recommended this tour to our friends. Hopefully they will take our advice. The next time I'm in the city I hope to do the Chelsea and Meatpacking District tour. Hopefully it will be sooner rather that later.

Not to be missed

Mother (61) and daughter (23) both loved this tour. The range of food was very interesting, really tasty and enough to fill us until late evening. We were also taken to beautiful parts of the city we would never have found alone. Our guide, Cindy, was fantastic - so knowledgeable and entertaining. She kept us all interested, amused and educated throughout the tour, which was very well organised and great value for money. We returned to several of the food places to eat during the rest of our short break. I heard about it from a friend who had been on it and I have recommended it to everyone I have spoken to since coming home. If you are going to New York this is an essential experience.

Enjoyable and Informative

I was told about these tours from a friend who recently went to NY. Thought it sounded fun so my daughter and I went on the tour of Chelsea Market the first day we arrived. My husband had business meetings. We loved not only the food and tour of the different restaurants but the history of the area and how the development of it came about was very interesting. Our tour guide did a great job and he really knew what he was talking about. We took my husband there on Saturday and did our own "mini" tour with him. Would recommend it and plan on doing another one of a different area on our next trip to the city.

Loved the tour

I enjoyed the tour very much. The only complaint I would have was that when the tour was over I couldn't find X&O sauce! I tried a Chinese grocery store but that was impossible. Will definately take another tour.

Informative,yummy,and friendly!
Mon, Apr 12, 10   12:00 PM veeharrison Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Enjoyed the history of the area, most of the food, and the pointers of Chinese eating etiquette given to us by our friendly and well-informed guide. Got a true flavor of China Town and am hoping to return to this part of the Big Apple when I visit again. Was disaapointed that we did not sample any dumplings which is one of my favorite Chinese dishes (even though that part of the tour was unavailable due to last minute circumstances). Did not enjoy the Peking duck, since it was just too fatty and would have preferred another tasing @ a different restaurant. The garlic pancakes were also too greasy for my palette. The first restaurant visited was excellent and the food superb. I enjoyed this tour and would highly recomment it to anyone who wants to get a good introduction to this historical area of N.Y.C. I also welcomed the printed brochure given to us highlighting the places we visited along the way which I will keep as a reference in my travel files.

Our guide, Sephorah (sp), was very knowledgeable, informative and entertaining on our walk and taste tour of Greenwich Village. The weather cooperated as it was a beautiful day also.
