Chelsea Market

From the beginning to the end, our guide Darryl lead an entertaining as well as informative tour. We not only ate well on the tour, but allowed to do a bit of shopping from time to time. I have been on many food tours and this would rank at the top. Those traveling with me had never been on such a tour, but I can guarantee they will in the future.

Robin, our guide was was very informative and friendly. The food was delicious! This was our second tour, the first being of the Greenwich Village a few years ago. Such tours are highly recommended for those wanting to learn more about New York City and taste delicious food. Both times we went back to make purchases from some of the vendors. It was great to get a discount as well at the vendors.

My husband and I are big fans of food tours, so it is no surprise that we enjoyed this one; however, we agreed that this may be the best one we've ever taken. First, the Chelsea Market is extremely interesting. The wide variety of stores pretty much insure that there is something for every possible taste. We especially enjoyed the produce market and the bakeries. Second, Darryl (sp?) was a terrific guide. He was very funny, quite knowledgeable about food and the shops and stalls we visited, and knew all kinds of celebrity gossip. I should add that he has a great memory; during the tour he addressed each of us (a group of ten) by name several times. We highly recommend this food tour.

Fantastic historical food tour

Really loved this tour. The food was good - not outstanding but good. I'd have liked to have more local or American produce rather than international. Cindy, our guide, was fantastic! Really knowledgable.

There are many companies of food tours in NYC. Since two separate people told me about this one, I knew it had to be great. I was not disappointed at all!! When one of our group could not make the trip to NYC, Amy didn't hesitate to refund the unused ticket and when I wanted to move up the time again, Amy didn't hesitate to help me.

When we arrived at the tour, our guide was super friendly, funny, knowledgeable, polite... I could just go on! He made sure each of us was satisfied at each stop and at the end too! Everyone on the tour loved him!!!!

I can't wait to come back to NYC and take a different tour with the same company!!!!

We experienced a great time and enjoyed Cindy very much. My son is a vegetarian and he was provided an alternate food when appropriate. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in food and a little NYC history thrown in

I have been on one other food tour in Portland, Maine. It was good, but Cindy has now set a new standard! I was most interested in the history of Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district. I loved what she shared with us and the little tidbits of information that she pointed out about the building and surrounding area. It really feels like she truly enjoys giving these tours and cares deeply about the area. We ate so much! My only suggestion would be to not eat breakfast because there was enough food consumed for both breakfast and lunch. We look forward to coming back and touring a new area with her.
