We are a group of four friends from the Jersey Shore who love to explore parts of New York City and enjoy different restaurants and walking tours We took this wonderful tour October 23rd, 2009 at 11.30am. Our guide was Curt who was just great. He was very gracious, informative and funny. We highly recommend this tour and we are thinking of taking another. Thank you very much.

Excellent time - great view of the district / food

We (four of us - two from Roswell, GA (Metro Atlanta) - two from Bluffton, SC really enjoyed the tour. Loved the food, the tour of the area, the history of the district, and we were very happy to have Dianna as our tour guide. Our second time on this tour - we took the first a year or so after it stared; amazing to see the change and evolution since that time in the "meat packing district." Also amazing that the "Cyote Ugly" bar is still there!

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Curt, went out of his way to learn our names, give us extra highlights of the area, and provide needed 'potty' stops. Getting to taste foods from a variety of food groups, and different eating establishments added to the enjoyment of the tour.

Would highly recommend it to other folk. Infact we did. Informed our local relatives about it and also some other friends in the area.

Next time we are in town, would like to take some of the other tours that your company offers. Thanks for the nice time and good eats.

This was my second Chelsea Market Food Tour - Diane was our tour leader this year and she was terrific - knowledgeable and entertaining.

The tour is well organized and so informative, not to mention delicious! Very fun sampling the offerings from the best vendors.

Our Chelsea Market tour was the third eating and walking tour we have taken of NYC. All three guides have been terrific - knowledgeable, pleasant and fun!! There is always so much interesting history included as well as excellent food. In fact, we ate at Cuba, a restaurant that we visited o our tour last spring!

WE are only sorry that we are running out of neighbourhoods to visit!!

We try to come every year in October to NYC. The Foods of New York Tours have really added to our experience and we always find a new, exciting restaurant to try as a result . Our tour guide was so easy and friendly with the group, as well as informative. She was helpfpul with visiting tips also.

We will come back!

All "Foodies" Will Love This Tour

Kurt was fantastic -- soooo knowledgeable and entertaining!

Loved to see how someone had the vision to make something out of nothing -- Chelsea Market Place is a true treasure --- and to eat and "graze" all along the tour was so much fun.

Would recommend it to all our friends --- we did many of the "touristy" NY sites -- but this would rank right up there on top for us.

Fabulous experience
Sat, Oct 3, 09   11:00 AM megar003 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
I am a tour guide and generally overly critical of tours. This tour was top notch. The tour started on time. The leader was prepared and excited to do the tour. He was very warm and professional. He introduced the group to each other and knew our names right away. The visits to various locations were most informative and food was fabulous. I took this same tour two years ago and wondered if I would like it as well as the first time and it did not disappoint. Don't be on the fence with this tour, sign up.
