My husband and I, visiting from Australia, found this tour to be a great introduction to the food on offer at the fabulous Chelsea market. Daryl was highly entertaining and informative and made sure we did not did not go hungry. Fortunately we had been prewarned not to eat lunch before the tour! We wished we had found the market earlier in our stay because there is so much great food on offer, however we were able to spend the following day there, sampling more of the produce and walking the highline. If you like food and are looking for a fun afternoon while eating then I would highly recommend this tour! A definite highlight of our stay in New York!

Informative - GreatWay To Discover New Area of NYC

This tour offers great insights into the Chelsea Market & Meatpacking District area - allowing you to visit shops and learn about the history of the area. Without a guide, you'd never understand what you're seeing or why you're tasting what you're tasting. Learning about the revitalization of this area was interesting - what they've transformed the area into in just 10 short years is remarkable! Definitely worth the visit.

Great way to spend a day

Really enjoyed the tour, leader was well-informed and enthusiastic. It was very crowded, I would have preferred a better time, seems most tours ran two ish on weekends...probably the only thing I didn't like. I was full from all the tastings, very full, my husband was ready to go and eat dinner after we got home (two hours after end of tour). He is not a huge guy, maybe 10-15 pounds overweight, but it was not enough for him. If you are going solely for food, you can probably just buy a few things from lthe shops for less money, but then you won't have the guide telling you all the little details of things. The day was fun and interesting and informative....and yummy. My group of four loved it. I will be doing other tours in the future.

I would recommend this tour to anyone. The history of the markets is fascinating and the food and shopping options are great. My wife and I ended up spending another 3-4hrs at the markets after the tour had ended.

Our tour guide Curt was so engaging. He remembered everybody's name and where they came from! Our group was very varied, foreign and American, from all over! I was the only New Yorker. He had lots of interesting information to share, was clever and amusing and generally entertaining. And he happily accommodated everyone's needs.

Wonderful experience!

This is the second Foods of New York tour I have taken. I have enjoyed both the Chelsea Market Tour and the Original Greenwich Village Tour. It is a delightful way to spend time in New York City. Our guide at the Chelsea Market tour was Cindy. She was so much fun and very knowledgeable. I had been to both the market and the Highline previously and really did not know the history until I took the tour with Cindy. We experienced excellent food tastings that would not be possible with just a walk through the market on our own. These tours are fantastic for both out of towers and locals.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide, Darryl, was so knowledgeable and entertaining. The food was delicious and we made purchases at Sarabeth's Bakery, Eleni's, and Lucy's Whey. We will definitely be coming back to the Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district for shopping and eating.
