I visit NYC every year with my mom and two sisters. This was our second NYC Food Tour and we absolutley loved it!! It's fun to share food, culture, and history with a group of people from all over the world! We will definetly be back to take another one. The tour guide (cindy) was fantastic. Very knowledgable!

Our guide, Bob, knew the district inside out and seemed to enjoy sharing his knowledge of and enthusiasm about the area with us. The food samples were generous and delicious. Small group size made conversation and questions possible. Highly recommended.

We were celebrating a friends 50th birthday - we are all from CT and not an "easy" crowd.

We had a wonderful time. Kurt, the guide was intersting, knowlegable and quite amusing. We were stuffed from the food samples...

The pamphlet with the info of the area was great. Would definitly do another tour with this company.

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!

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.
