I would highly recommend this tour. It was very entertaining and informative. The guide is enthusiastic and knowledgeable which made the activity more fun. It gives you the chance to see the smaller details of the areas involved that you wouldn't normally notice. Because I live close to New York City I've been able to go back to the places we saw on the tour that I wouldn't have known about.

We loved the tour -- we had company in from out of town -- and since we already had BIG FUN on your Greenwich Village Tour -- we signed up for this one. Again -- you guys were insightful, entertaining, and FULL OF GREAT TASTES - literally. We TOTALLY enjoyed the tour, and would go on it again. Thanks again!

I had previously gone on the Village tour and was highly impressed with both the tour guide, the food, and the cultural and historical aspects of the tour. My parents came up from CA for their vacation, and I helped set them up for the Village and Chelsea tour as well as the All Loops Tour and 3night/4day stay at the Washington Square Hotel vacation package. As per the Village tour guide's suggestion, we had dinner at Fish, and was given a complimentary bottle of Pinot Noir to enjoy with our meal and dessert - both the owner, Jerry, and his staff were extremely friendly and very nice to chat with! I joined them for the Chelsea tour and was even more impressed with the quality of food and information on this tour - we wish our "Rookie" tour guide well, and hope that many more groups will be able to enjoy his positive attitude. Thanks Heidi for all of your help in setting this up for us; to our tour guides for their warm, funny attitudes; to the hotel staff for their hospitality and generosity - beautiful, absolutely beautiful; to Jerry and his fiance - congrat's and thank you for sharing your culinary creations with us, and to our adorable waitress - keep up the good work; and to all of the local businesses that take part in the tours - your food is yummy, yummy, yummy, and we'll be back for more :). As you can probably tell, my parents and I enjoyed the whole Foods of NYC experience, and highly recommend the tour packages to any and everyone - this is too good of an opportunity to pass up!

Loved it! 2 guides--Todd and another guy were great. I learned a lot and ate a lot too and met some nice people. Length and everything was terrific. I plan to return to go on the Sex and the City tour next time.

It was great! Our "guide" Cindy led us on a terrific tour. It was historical, cultural and culinary - all in one. The food was excellent, the history was interesting, and Cindy's enthusiasm for all of it was contagious.

We loved it and will visit often. In fact, on our way home we had Sunday brunch at Florent...in Chelsea and recommended by Cindy. What a true delight!!!

I love this tour & would HIGHLY recommend it to locals & tourists alike! We went on the Village tour a couple years ago (loved it!) & were thrilled to see this one added. Everything about it is spectacular...food is great, tour guide is knowledgable, engaging & fun.

we all give accolades to Cindy our guide; she's FAB and really made the market come alive for us. we left feeling that she's a jewel for the promotion/explanation of this venue.

also loved the format of tasting around. we stopped back to buy more of Amy's breads. a great day!!
