Great experience with a great guide

We had a great experience on the Chelsea food tour. We learned a lot about the area and were able to try some delicious tastings. Our tour guide was Darrel and he was really engaging. He made a point to remember everyone's name and get everyone actively participating on the tour. Overall a five star experience.

Eat before you go.

This is a great tour but I did the same tour last year and I had more food to try. I had friends in from Canada and I bragged about the amount of food they would try and we left hungry. I was a bit disappointed this time around. Learn from me...EAT before you go.

Good! But...

After taking a different food tour with this company which we liked very much, our group decided to try this one. We were very happy with our guide who was organized, knowledgable and entertaining. We had never been to the market before and found it very interesting and the choices for the tour were great. Now the downside - the market was SO crowded and noisy and the shops small that we often had trouble staying together and other shoppers were annoyed by our large group taking over a tiny shop or stopping in the hallway. It was difficult to hear the guide and there was information that we missed because he stood in the middle of the group turning in a circle as he spoke. There was also less food on this tour than the Greenwich Village tour.

The tour of Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District was very entertaining. This was our first trip to this area of the city and we will definitely go back. The samples that we had were very tasty, but the best part of the tour was our guide. He gave us all kinds of information, historical details and recommendations for future adventures in the area.

Very tasty & interesting look at Chelsea Markets

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Cindy, our guide, made itr a very enjoyable 3 hours. The tastings were great and the stories about each establishment, the market building and meat packing district were very interesting.

We had walked through Chelsea market the day before and mostly missed the quirkiness that the developer has put into the building and of course knew nothing of the history or specific design features from its heyday.

This is a great value for money tour. 3 hours of information and eating. The tastings were excellent and many of them. Our guide Cindy was extremely enthusiastic and made the tour interesting and entertaining.

Good Food and Good History of the Chelsea Market

The Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District Food Tour was well worth the time and effort. The market itself is a very interesting place with a lot of history and becomes the main character on the tour. Even if you have visited the market before you will gain a new appreciation for it once having been on this tour. You also get a small taste of the High Line park, which cuts right over the market. This is perfect for any public space or architecture lover in your group. Over all the Foods of New York tours are outstanding every time, and this one is no exception.
