Wonderful Time! A Great Fun Take!

From the start of the tour to the completion, we had such a fun, informative and tasty time. I would highly recommend this tour to friends and family as it gives you a view of the Chelsea Market District that you really can not get from a book. This is not like a usual tour experience, you don't feel like a tourist you feel like your with a friend (who knows alot about the city) showing you around. We had a great time!

Tourists and Locals LOVED this tour!

We visited NY last week and wanted to find an activity to enjoy with friends who are NY area residents. Our tour guide, Bob was a wealth of information and our friends who were very familiar with the area gleaned a great deal of new information. The size of the tour group (16 max) is an ideal number as it allows for opportunity to ask questions of the guide. The food tasting venues were excellent and like the Greenwich Village tour we enjoyed a few days earlier, we found the tastings to be plentiful and ample enough to be described as a meal. It was a fascinating area of the city to explore. We can't wait to return to the city to enjoy yet another Foods of NY tour!

Great tour! We had Bob as our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable about the history of Chelsea Market, the current owner and stores and the entire harbor area.

Would definetly take other tours in this area.

Darryl our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. We sampled loads of different foodstuffs and had a great tour of the market and Meatpacking area - not to mention the hi-tec bathroom! Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Being in our sixties, we viewed this walking tour with a certain amount of trepidation, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Although we covered a fair amount of ground, the pace was comfortable, and the stories, anecdotes and personal experiences of our guide made it a truly light hearted and memorable day. There were more than ample tastings, plenty of background about the varied samples, but no pressure to buy. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the morning, the samples, the company of the rest of the group, but the services of our very knowledgeable and personable guide was in fact, "the icing on the cake" A big thankyou to you all !!

Fun Experience - Fun Merket Place

Loved the tour!! Chealse Market is awesome. Learned alot of history of the Market and the area. Only downfall- When the tour ended we were on the top floor of a hotel to see the view but the tour ended there. It would of been nice to end in the Market Place.

Everything about the tour exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Bob, was fabulous, and it was very interesting learning about the history of the market. The food tastings were great as well! I would highly recommend the tour to anyone and will definitely consider taking one of the other tours the next time I'm in the city.

Terrific tour, outstanding food, well worth it!

Our group of 12 girlfriends were met by our tour guide Darryl right on time. I was thinking that we might need to plan a late lunch after the tour, but we were just STUFFED by the end of the tour. Chelsea is a neighborhood none of us had visited before, but we`ll be back. Be sure to bring a shopping bag with you to bring home all those fantastick goodies you`ll want to stock up on after the tour.

Tour Guide Can or Break

We had a great tour guide and even though it rained for the outdoor portion of the tour, we still had fun.

The tour of the market is more of tasting then learning how they do things. Still fun and great food.
