Cindy, our guide, was interesting and informative, with a very nice personality. My friend and I were completely unfamiliar with the area prior to the tour; now we feel like we know enough to make enjoyable future trips. We especially enjoyed the history of the Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district. Cindy gave us a real feel for what the area was like in the past and how it is evolving.

This is our second tour, as we took the Greenwich Village tour last fall. We both hope you will add to your tours eventually, perhaps to the Lower East Side? Chinatown? Little Italy?

I have recommended your company's tours to others, as I think your tours are top-notch in every way!

After a wonderful experience getting to know the Greenwich neighborhood on your tour in the Spring of 03, we signed up for the Chelsea tour. We had a great time tasting our way through the market and enjoyed Todd's casual style of sharing the history of the market and the meat packing district. We are already recommending the tour to others and are anxious to get back there ourselves!

Very informative and interesting. Tour guide Todd was fantastic! Will be recommending this tour to family and friends during their visits to NYC. In addition to the food samples, the historical information was something you could not have gotten out of a tour book. We will take this tour again next year so that we can watch this unique area grow.

Our group took the Greenwich Village food tour last year and couldn't wait to come back and do the Chelsea Market tour. It was wonderful, and Todd our guide was superb!! Our ages range from 25-59 and we all loved it. You need to come up with another tour so wecan do it next year!!

I loved it! I think I should get a kickback because I've already convinced some of my friends to book a tour. It is a great blend of history, art, architecture and of course, food! I also did the Village Tour and thought that was excellent as well.

We had a great time with our tour guide Cindy! She is a great person and so well informed and always had some trivia as well. We enjoyed our stroll through the market which is fantastic!! Great architecture, nice shops, great food. We came back afterwards to do some shopping.

We did both tours offered by Foods of NY and enjoyed both the same, perhaps with a little preference for the Chelsea tour.

I can only recommend this kind of different aproach to New York. You will definitly have a fantastic time!

We had a great time. Very informative. Would do it again. We also went on the Greenwich Village tour and would recomend that one also. We saw a New York that the typical tourist never sees.
