This was the second tour I have taken with Foods of New York - and I have been lucky to have Kurt both times! Kurt is very enthusiastic and energetic - a great personality to discover this area. The markets were great and the food samplings were all delicious. We ended up going back to the market on our own and to one of the restaurants in the Meatpacking District for dinner a couple of weeks later. The tour is a great opportunity to get to know about stores and restaurants that you would not get by going it alone!

The historical background of the area was the most interesting aspect of the tour. The guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. The food samplings were varied and enjoyable. Highly recommended if you are able to walk for the better part of 3 hours, although there are short breaks of sitting that provide relief. My wife and I are over 70 and we got through it OK.

A friend gifted the tour to us as an engagement present earlier in the year, and we finally had a chance to attend. What a great gift it made! The food was delicious, the host was entertaining and accommodating, the historical knowledge gave us a fascinating new perspective. Would definitely recommend!

This tour was amazing! You get the right amount of history (makes it interesting but not boring) to set the tone. You really get to know Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking district. You even get to visit some of the upscale restaurants in the area. Our tour guide, Kurt, was extremely funny, knowledgeable, and very friendly. It was great to be able to sample food from many different shops. It's a good amount of food but not too much at one place. You get a wide variety of tastes to taunt your palette. Definitely worth it! Don't miss it!

This tour and it's guide were phenomenal!! Not only was our guide an entertainer, but he knew his stuff and kept us interested and eating the whole, he memorized everyone's name in the whole group in about 5 minutes!! The food we sampled was wonderful and the Chelsea Market is such an interesting place. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like a little more intimate view of an area along with some great taste treats!
