My family all throughly enjoyed our tour, even with our different ages and different tastes, we were all pleased! After this tour WE were informing locals about the great places! Our guide was smart, entertaining, and enthusiastic. What could be better? Learning all about a special part of New York City AND eating lots of great food!! A MUST for every local and visitor alike! Don't miss this!

This was an excellent tour of Chelsea Market and a few of the surrounding shops. I would highly recommend it.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. As a foodie it was great for me, but my husband and kids also enjoyed. It was very interesting to see the excellent use of the old Nabisco factory as well as the history of the area. Lat year we took the Greenwich Village tour, which has a more involved history thus more interesting.

In both cases the guides were wonderful and food tastings terrific.

We highly recommend both tours.

I've been referring everyone to this tour as well as your Village tour - both were excellent! A great value and very informative. As a Manahattan resident - it provides a wealth of information about local restaurants and history about the area. The Chelsea Market tour was great for people who like to cook and entertain! Our tour guide was excellent - very knowledgable about the food industry in general and he took us to some great places in the Meat Packing District - especially like the Gansvoort Penthouse for dessert!

We did the tour of the East Village a few years ago. I recommended it to several people here in L.A. who took it and love it. The Chelse Market tour was just as wonderful. Our guide, who's name I don't remember, was wonderful. He had so much information to offer us. I will recommend this tour to all my friends planning a trip to NYC. Maybe you'll get a third tour going so we can do that one next time. Thanks John Frommelt

The tour was great. We got to see Chelsea Market which is not something the average out of towner would stumble accross on their own. Was fun to see how all the shops were run and sampled some yummy food. As the weather was cold and rainy, it was nice to spend a lot of the tour inside.

Knowledgeable and very friendly guide. More outdoor selections from the meatpacking district and fewer from inside Chelsea Market would have been appreciated, especially since the Chelsea Market portion of the tour seemed to consiste of cheerleading for the Market's founder. In general, the celebration of gentrification in both the market and the meatpacking district seemed unreflective. That having been said, we enjoyed the tour very much.

I took the Greenwich Village food tour three years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our group was planning a day in the city and we were looking for something else to do in addition to taking in a Broadway show. I recommended this and we all enjoyed it. I enjoyed this tour as much, if not more, than the Greenwich tour. Our guide was extremely informative and knowledgable as well as funny. The food was delicious and there was more than enough to fill you up. It might be helpful to know ahead of time that the first two hours of this particular tour takes place inside, and only the last hour is outside. I highly recommend both of the food tours. It's a great way to spend three hours in the city and well worth the money.
