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!!

I loved the tour. It was informative as well as fun. The foods were excellent and I would recommand this tour to all my friends if they ever were to visit NYC. This is not your average "touristy" tour. It's out of the norm for tourists, yet you get to understand the culture of NYC so much more.

We learned so much about this area that we didn't know! It was neat. Todd was a thorough and very personable guide. He clearly had done his homework. I would highly recommend this tour. We went back to shop many of the stops on the tour after it was over.

Cindy was fabulous. The food was yummy and we learned a lot about ny, the development and changes in the neighborhood. Cindy was fun, interesting, organized, and knowledgeable. We also took another food tour from one of your competetiors ($95.00 per person) and it was lousy, disorganized, etc. I have already recommended you to everyone I've talked to since I've been home.

This was our second tour. I would have never even known Chelsea Market was there, let alone all the unique things to see in the building. I am a New Yorker who moved to Central Connecticut and love to see new things in NY. My son (6) went with us and though it is really not geared to young children, he had a great time and loved all the tastings!

Our guide was very nice to him and would include him on whatever she could (he was the only small child). We also had a 14 year old niece who really liked it.

The history is amazing and the area is great. I can't wait to go back and shop some more!

I only wish their were more tours to go on!
