Well worth the time & $

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area & made the tour interesting. The foods offered along the way were tasty and we definitely did not need lunch afterward. We were also given valuable coupons. To use after the tour was over. The booklet they gave us also had great info on some surrounding restaurants too. We are so glad we signed up for this tour. It made our stay in NYC more informative & fun.

We look forward to their other tours when we go back again & to other cities.

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.

Chelsea Market Tour is a Must Do!!!

The Chelsea market & meatpacking district food and culture tour exceeded our expectations. We were treated to multiple food 'snack' stops as well as given a very complete background history info session by our guide as the tour progressed through both the market place and the meatpacking district. if possible to get guide of choice, ask for Curt. He was super knowledgable, enthusiastic, and well known by all the food stop vendors we dropped in on. A must do if you visit NYC, and we intend to try some of their other district tours that Foods of NY Tours offers on our next visit to the Big Apple.. enjoy!!!

Don't leave NYC without taking this tour. It was top class...informative, entertaining, great food...definitely worth the money. Our tour guide, Bob, was stellar. We had so much fun and learned so much. It was one of the highlights of our trip to New York City!

Great history tour but only a fair food tour
Mon, Nov 4, 13   10:00 AM MaryAnnF Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Our tour guide, Diana, was very informative and entertaining. We learned alot about the history of the area. So as a history tour it was great, but as a food tour only so-so. Many of the samples were pretty meager - i.e., a small cucumber stick with salt on it, one caramel, one ounce of chocolate milk, etc. Why bother to stop for that?
