Bob, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. Chelsea Market, the High Line park and the meatpacking district were all very interesting. The 6 tastings were varied and delicious and definitely enough for lunch. We highly recommend this tour to everyone.

The guide (Cindy) was terrific and told us lots about the area. The food was amazing from all the stops and more than we expected. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.

This tour is fantastic. I have heard about Chelsea Marketplace but never knew what it actually was about. The history of the building, the building itself, the shops - wow. We samples everything from soup to desserts. The meatpacking district is very interesting as well, seeing the transition from the meatpacking plants to the quaint shops and yummy restaurants. This is our second tour provided by FoodTours, and we are planning our third for April, 2011. Do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed!

What an absolutely fantastic way to spend an afternoon in New York!!! The Chelsea Market tour was a highlight of a fun weekend in the city. Our tour guide, Curt, was so knowledgeable and entertaining as well. He memorized all sixteen participant's names and referred to all of us by name frequently. It was a way to keep you engaged in what he was saying, as well as making you feel that he was interested in your personal enjoyment of the tour. There was so much good food to sample and enough history and background information without making you feel that it was a history lesson. We sampled a great variety of foods and we all went back to the market after the tour to shop since we were so impressed by the samples we had tasted. We are definitely planning to take the Greenwich Village tour on our next trip which we hope will become an annual event!

My friend and I really enjoyed the tour!!! Yes, I would recommend the tour. We went back to some of the stores after the tour was over and bought some things we tried. We also had a great guide and I wish I could remember his name. ( I'm not good at remembering names. )

I personally have not been back to the market in quite a few years and was taken away with all the changes.

Don't have time to say much, but the tour was exceptional. Food was great. Cindy is a hoot. Surprise visit to the elevated park. Great insights in NYC History. Couldn't have had a more enjoyable 3 hours. Also note that WTC is right around the corner. Thus had great day with family. (son is 26 years old).
