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.

We enjoyed it. We are glad we did not miss out on the opportunity. We never would of seen the market, or known about it, without the tour.

We had a great time - Todd, our guide, was very knowledgeable and compassionate about the Meat Packing District.

I would have spent a little more time outside of Chelsea Market though, walking around the district.

Food was good but nothing to rave about...

We will come back to the area for the shops at Chelsea market and to support the new restaurants...

The guide was great. Really seemed to know the location well. Tour was very informative and the places visited on the tour were great as well. I feel I know the area better because of this tour. Hoping to return a few years to see what changes are done.

This was my second time on the same tour, but the first for my two friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Both my friends are still talking about it and plan to take the Greenwich tour next time. The guide was great, informative and patient, full of interesting facts. Great job and well worth the fee.
