Loved it. Our guide, Heather, was great, interesting, and fun. Enjoyed a small, low-key tour in the middle of big city.

There was so much good food on this tour that many people in our group almost groaned from being so full when our guide said there were three more tastings left. Once we got the food the groaning ended. I loved how there was a good mix of sweet, savory and everyhing in between. The guide was great and gave us history of the area (more that was expected) and that was a welcome treat. They were also great at accomodating special dietary needs as long as you tell them when you buy your tickets. I would recommed this to anyone - tourist or people that live in the city. There might be someplace you never thought of going to before.

The Chelsea Market and Meat Packing District Tour was fantastic! My sister-in-law and I are from NJ and love spending time in NYC, so we are always looking for things to do over there. I came across the food tasting tours while "surfing the net". This tour is well worth the time and money spent. We just loved the market and the changes made to the surrounding area. There were enough tastings included in the tour that you could surely bypass lunch and go for a wonderful dinner in one of the many area restaurants. Our tour guide, Todd, was just great and so informative. He always kept the interest level high throughout the entire 3 hour tour. Great job! I have recommended this tour to all friends and family. When thinking of a great gift, this tour goes right to the top of my list. I will definitely try out the other tours offered.

Great tour...90% of why it was great can be attributed to Diana, the tour guide. She should teach other guides how it's done!

What a great way to get a taste of the city!

We thoroughly enjoyed the walk through Greenwich Village, and we especially loved the food samples. This was a really wonderful way to get to know a NYC neighborhood a little more intimately than we would have if we'd wandered around the streets by ourselves. We look forward to trying another Foods of NY tour the next time we come back to the city.

First off, our tour guide, Marie, was wonderful. She knew the neighborhood and shared her insights. Don't know if I would give it as high a rating if we had another tour guide. She made it a very enjoyable and informative tour. What I particularly liked was that I now have a list of several establishment to re-vist in the Village, including several restaurants. Excellent value - - there are not too many options in NYC were you can eat a meal, be entertained and learn something for $44.00. Glad that I saw the comment that says "don't eat before the tour". While each tasting is just that, when you add it up it is a lot of food and our group (men and women) all felt the same way.

I would strongly recommend this tour. The information about the neighborhood was very interesting, the food tastings were delicious and very plentiful, the shop owners were welcoming and friendly, the tour guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and helpful with information. The tour started on time and continued at a good pace-it was never boring! I have told several people to take this tour. I would certainly take another tour from this company. Wear comfy shoes!

Chelsea Market tour is a must!

The Chelsea Market tour was absolutely amazing. I would highly suggest it to anyone. It's also a great value for the price and what they say is true, don't eat before, you'll definitely get plenty to munch on! Our guide Kurt was wonderful. He went above and beyond and took us for a wonderful walk around the Meatpacking District and to a few places off the beaten path. He really made sure we all had a great time. Take the tour, you won't regret it!

The food tour was very good and interesting. Learned the history of the area and went to restaurants and food stores I never would have found on my own. This is the 2nd tour I've taken and highly recommend it.

We've been to the original Food of NYC tour in Greenwich and thought we should go to another one to learn more about the city, even though we have spent our lives here. All I must say was, it was fantastic. Nice little tour of places that we just didn't know existed. And the tour guide,Diana was very enthusiastic and informative. Can't ask for anything more. Thanks for a great time.

This is an incredible trip. Our tour guide David was very well informed with a passion for NYC. The food we tasted on the tour was incredible as were some of the stories regarding this neighborhood.

I am a New Yorker (Manhattan) and I go to Chinatown fairly frequently. This tour was great! I was introduced to some new, really unique places as well as to some that I already know. Even though I have been to some of them before, this was a whole new experience. Akim's detailed description of the foods, culture and history made this such a memorable experience, I will definitely recommend the tour to friends and I will go on other tours that you offer. After 30 years of living in New York, I love being a tourist and still have lots to learn.
