Don't miss this tour!

My daughter lives in Brooklyn and her aunt and I joined her on this great tour. We learned more than we expected about the meatpacking district and Chelsea Market. We'd shopped at Chelsea Market before and eaten at restaurants in the area but were so interested in the fascinating history of this district. Our tour guide was amazing. He shared dates and details that made the history come alive. This is the best walking food tour we've been on in New York. My favorite, so far!

My husband and I took your Chelsea Mkt walking tour w/ Ed on Sunday 8/31/08.

Ed was most knowledgable and the tour and food were super. I now have a new place to visit on all future trips to NYC. We heartily recommend this tour to anyone wanting to spend an enjoyable time eating there way around the Chelsea Market area.

Sincerely,

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

One of the most informative tours we did. Our tour guide was wonderful. He made this tour very enjoyable and inter-acted with the group. Most amazing was how he remembered everyone's name and made this tour personal for everyone. The food was very good and, after the tour, we went back to Chelsea Market to purchase some of the unique teas and spices from the shops we visited. We were very fortunate to have the guide we did. He didn't rush us through anything and we even did a few extra stops. Because of our guide, we went back to Chelsea Market a couple of days later to enjoy some more of the wonderful food. I highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again.

Our tour guide, Kurt, was excellent. He was very informative, provided us with

interesting background information, and kept each one of us actively involved.

He knew each one of us by name. We loved his humor.

The food samples were delicious and the servings were just enough to entice

the palate. Thanks for the water bottle.

It was more than we expected and would highly recommend it to others. It was truly

an enjoyable, entertaining, and informative tour.

Fantastic tour--do not miss it!

Our tour guide, Kurt, was fabulous right from the start! We had a good-sized group, but he remembered all our names immediately. We enjoyed every stop & tasted wonderful things ranging from the everything cookie, to shrimp & blackbean soup, to an Italian sampler, etc. The tour extended out into the district where we went into 2 restaurants, Morimoto & Del Posto as well as the rooftop bar at the Hotel Gansevoort. After the tour ended (where did the 3 hours go??), many of us went back to make purchases from the places we visited. What fun!

Outstanding tour of Chelsea market
Sun, Aug 3, 08   11:00 AM ritadutra Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our guide explained the history of the building, the concept of the new market place and a bit about how each business started.

The variety of food businesses was good, the food samples were sized properly.

Our guide showed us the progress being made developing the meat packing district and ended at the roof top of a hotel in the district that showed us the area.

Strongly recommend this as part of a visit to New York City.

Guide was both entertaining and knowledgeable. We all learned a lot and enjoyed the tour. Had already taken the Greenwich Village tour, hoping there is another for us to enjoy together.

This is the 2nd Foods of NY tour I have taken and plan to take the rest of the tours offered. It has opened up parts of the city I have not ventured to in the past. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and he was very funny. A great time was had by all!! Thanks for such an enjoyable day.
