I loved the history of the market. The tastings were great. The guide was very informed. She was fun and seemed to really enjoy her job. I would recommend you take the tour. A wonderful way to spend a few hours.

Bob was a wonderful guide who proved to be a "fountain of information" -- it was obvious that he loves New York City. I do a "Foods of New York" tour EACH time I am in NYC -- and I've never been disappointed. Gracious plenty food w/ a very nice variety.

I took my family, including my husband and two teenage boys, on the Chelsea market/meat packing district food tour this past weekend and had a great time. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining, food tasting was delicious and we really got to know not just the Chelsea market, but also the hy-line and the meat packing district. An excellent way to spend three hours in NYC for anyone!

It was well presented by our tour guide. The shops that we visited were excellent and the tastings as well. I would be very happy to recommend this tour to anyone as one of the many places that should be seen.

Took tour with my 25 yr old daughter and 14 others ..a variety of ages and backgrounds. Our tour guide was animated, interesting, and informative. We had lots of fun, laughs, and a variety of foods. Definitely would recommend.

This is a great tour that won't leave you as stuffed as you might think since there is quite a bit of walking to burn off the calories from all the delicious tastings, though I did skip breakfast since I was on the 10:30am tour after reading that suggestion in another review. Bob was a wonderful guide and I truly enjoyed the time spent in his company as well as that of our group which consisted of locals and travelers. I was by myself, and late thanks to a cab driver taking me on a way out of the way route resulting in me jumping out of the cab and sprinting the final 9 blocks, but the office staff was very helpful in directing me to where I could meet up with the group and Bob was welcoming and assured me I hadn't missed the first tasting. Whew!! The tastings covered a broad range of foods available at the Market and there was something for everyone. So go, eat, and enjoy!

We had a wonderful tour- not only all of the tastings, but our guide, Bob Gelber was full of interesting history of the Chelsea market and the local area. We highly recommend both the tour and Bob

The Chealsey Market food tour was very informative and interesting. We sampled many good foods and our guide, Cindy, was knowledgable and friendly. 3 hours passed very quickly. Would take the tour again next time we are in NY.
