Our guide was very knowledgeable, she answered all our questions and we had a lot. She was quick on her feet even though one foot wwas in a walking cast. she took us to terrific places of NY history, places we never knew existed. We loved every part of the tour especially the eating places - a wonderful blend of history and contemporary culture in one afternoon. Before you know it you too will feel like a member of the nieghborhood. This was our second tour with Foods of NY - just terrific. see you on the next one !

The extremely knowledgeable guide was entertaining and made the tour that much more interesting. Providing insights, history, and current events for each location visited made each tour stop memorable. And, the sampling and background on and of the various establishments was a sure-fire way for return visits, much to the advantage of each of the shops and restaurants. It sure worked for us that way. Highly recommended and we will try other tours on our next trip to the Big Apple.

Our guide, Diana, was very friendly and knowledgable about the area. She kept the group moving together. We enjoyed the generous samples at each place. We will recommend it to visitors and are planning to take more.

One of the best culinary tours we've had.

This was our third culinary tour and I think it was our favorite. We were unfamiliar with the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District so it was fun to see something new. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The food was varied and delicious!

Our guide (Kurt) was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable, made a point of remembering all of our names, and really made the tour enjoyable. I have already recommended it to some friends who will be visiting the city this summer.

Terrific Time!!

Our group of three signed up for this tour on the internet and picked this one because most of it was inside and air-conditioned. We had a fantastic tour guide named Kurt, who learned all our names, gave us historical and food information, and entertained us during our time togther. This was a very enjoyable time with LOTS to eat - big and little snacks from many places! There are times when one can sit down to rest, if you are worried about too much walking. A bottle of water is provided, but I suggest you bring a plastic bag to carry the handouts and extra food provided. A wonderful experience and I highly recommend this tour and the one of Greenwich Village. We did both.

I would highly recommend this food tasting/walking tour. We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgable of the area history and people, the shops, restaurants, etc. Had many interesting, fun anecdotes and stories to share. He helped us get to know each other so we were like new friends touring together. Also made suggestions for enjoying the area after the tour and shared restaurant/entertainment ideas and tips. Visited almost 20 places and sampled their specialties. Lots of variety. Definitely all one would want/need for lunch and then some. A great value and terrific way to see the MP and Chelsea district and even a bit of the west village. Pace was very good. Just the right amount of walking. Chance to sit a bit for those with leg/back problems. Everyone from a young mom with kids, singles, a ladies group, mother & daughter, young and elder couples thoroughly enjoyed experiencing this tour together. Something for everyone. Looking forward to doing one of the Village tours on our next NYC trip! I'll be sure to take my husband along next time. He'll love it!
