I thoroughly enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour, and have highly recommended it to people in Hawaii who will be visiting NYC soon for business and graduation. Todd was a great tour guide and provided us with much historical and current development information on the Meat Packing district. I look forward to returning in 2006 for my son's graduation, and anticipate a huge transformation. I took my son to the market the next day, to buy nigiri sushi and fish for sashimi; what a treat for a student away from home in the Islands.

We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal while we enjoyed delicious foods from the market. Todd, our tour guide, was knowledgable and genuinely enjoyed giving the tour. This made the experience that much more exciting. It was fantastic and we have already recommended this tour to family and friends.

I have to say that it was one of the best parts of our trip to New York!! The tour was very informative, fun and was a great way to see a special part of New York. I would definitely recommend it to anyone going to New York and actually already have. If we do make it back to New York again the Grenwich Village tour will definitely be on our list.

Our guide Todd was great!

We were 6 women - ages 21 - 58, from PA, NM, Florida gathering to celebrate milestone birthdays. Darryl was one of the best tour guides I've had (& over the years I've been on many many tours). He was funny, knowledgeable, and somehow learned everyone's names within moments. Loved the variety of food we tasted and were also amazed at how much we got to eat. Definitely lunch for us all! The 3 main birthday girls got big cupcakes with candles & Darryl's rendition of "Happy Birthday" making Elani's even more special. Tasting everything from beef tartar to red velvet cupcakes to pulled pork made for a wonderfully varied culinary experience. We will definitely be back for full meals at some of the places next time we're in NYC. We also plan to schedule a different tour with this company, and would love to request Darryl if possible. We all HIGHLY recommend Foods of NY as a great way to get to know an area in the city. Thank you!!!
