Never a Disappointment!

Foods of NY Tours is absolutely the greatest! I have now taken four of their tours - two of them two or more times! You, as a tourist, could never appreciate Chelsea Market just sightseeing on your own. The Foods of NY Tours is the ONLY tour company that is allowed to take tour groups into Chelsea Market - the reason - well there are several: 1. The group is held to a maximum of 15 so as not to interfere with businesses, their guests and their employees, and 2. the tour guides are very well trained on the history of Chelsea Market and the companies that call Chelsea Market their home. I have had two different tour guides, Cindy and Robin and both were equally good. They both inserted their own personalty in the tour and knew the history of the market and the facts on the stores that reside within the Market. The food tastings are great and the market itself is amazing. I love the owner left as much of the integrity of the market as was possible. What a piece of history!

My mom and I did the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District tour last Sunday and it was wonderful! We had Robin as our tour guide and she did an awesome job. The amount of food was just right for me and all of the tastings were so good. Robin had a lot of knowledge about the places we stopped at as well as the history of Chelsea and the Meatpacking district. We plan to do another foods of NY tour next year when we visit!

Had a GREAT time. Daryll (our tour guide) made it so much fun and the tour itself was so well organized and the food was fabulous. The "timing" of the prepared food and our arrival at each stop was PERFECT! So enjoyed getting to revisit this area, experiencing the Hi-Line, exploring Chelsea Market, and learning about the gentrification of the area. I would recommend it in a heart beat (and already have this morning at work!) Thank you for a great day!

A feast for the eyes, ears and tastebuds

Excellent balance between history, humor and tastings. The Chelsea Market area and the Meatpacking district are beautiful; an incredible transformation over the past two decades. There is so much to see and take in. The food tastings were well selected, delicious and plentiful. It was clear that our tour guide Cindy was passionate about New York, and food. She came out with some great one-liners that kept us entertained, and she was very warm and caring with the group. We felt well taken care of as Cindy always made sure to check in with the group to see how we were feeling and if we needed anything. When back in NYC, we will look into another one of their tours!

Great Tour ~ Great Guide ~ Won't walk away hungry!

The Chelsea Market & Meatpacking Tour by far has been one of the best tours yet! What a great way to learn about the history of the market & meatpacking district while filling your belly at the same time. I'm sure it had a lot to due with our terrific tour guide ~ CINDY!! She was very knowledgeable, funny and made sure everyone was well taken of. The samplings were plentiful and delicious. Plan on extra time after the tour to revisit the shops and take home some of the great foods you tasted. I also have to give kudos to the office staff at Foods of NY Tours...due to mechanical problems with our bus we were late for the tour. They kept in contact with Cindy and we met up with her at the second stop. She made sure we didn't miss out on the first samplings and had them waiting for us when we arrived. Great tour ~ don't miss it! Thanks again Cindy, Dennis & Mason for making our day a memorable one!!!!!
