Great history tour but only a fair food tour

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?

Firstly, come hungry! A lovely variety of delicious food from a range of vendors in Chelsea Market. Curt was our guide and so full of information and fascinating insights into everything...a great character. The three hours flew by and we walked and talked non-stop. I have been on similar tours in Chicago too and they are all a great way to see an area and learn about its history while trying some very good food. Recommend highly

This is our second Tasting Tour and it was every bit as good (maybe even better) than the first we did 2 years ago. The guides are so knowledgeable and the food is so good. What more could you ask for; you get to walk, see the sites, sit down and eat, and learn alot about the area all at the same time! Cindy our guide had the right mix of entertainment and interesting historical facts, she is a gem! I whole-heartedly recommend this tour.

Chelsea Market tour

I enjoyed the tour - but if you have problems walking this tour may not be for you. The food was very delicious and made you want to try more items.

Make sure to bring a lot of water for even though it is provided more may be needed depending on time of year that you go.

Also may want to bring a bag w/you if you plan on purchasing any items.
