History seemed to take a front page to this tour.. Food was more of a secondary, but overall the tour was wonderful.

I can't recommend this tour stongly enough. It was fantastic to see a part of New York that was away from the main 'tourist traps' and still learn something of the history of the city.

Our guide had an enthusiasm for the city which was infectious. By the end, I was jealous that I didn't live in New York as I wanted to be able to come back again and again to the Chelsea Market.

Next time I'm in New York I will definitely be booking to do another tour with Foods of New York.

We took the Chelsea Market food tour on Sunday October 8th. We thoroughly enjoyed it and thought that the tour guide, and group felt very enthusiastically about it also. The selection of restaurants visited was impressive, and there was a good amount of variety of food sampled from savory to sweet. I would highly recommend this to any group type whether it be a couple, family or just visitors of NYC.

This was our second food tour, having taken the central Village tour last summer. Really enjoyed the guided tour including the history of the meat packing district. The samples of food were delicious and more than enough to satisfy our hunger. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Fabulous tour of Chelsea Market and the Meat Packing District. Food tastings at multiple locations. Red Velvet cupcakes from Eleni's are yummy. Our tour guide Curtis was extremely knowledgible and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour.l High Line Park was great to see too.

Terrific Tour

We took the Greenwich Village tour last July and had a fantastic time with a fabulous tour guide, Cindy. So you can imagine how thrilled we were when our tour guide arrived and who should it be but Cindy! We knew we were in for a great time and we were not disappointed. You can keep the museums, monuments, etc and give us these terrific food and culture tours! I would like to add that I agree with one of the other reviewers (donnalley) that it might be nice to start at 10:30 outside and move inside later especially in high summer. I realize that this may not be possible since the crowds are probably larger later. However, if at all possible I think it would be nice to reverse the order.

A great experience

This tour is a wonderful way to discover Chelsea Market and the surrounding area. You have access to nearly all of the shops and restaurants in the Market, behind-the-scenes tours of fantastic restaurants in the area and an introduction to the Meat Packing District. You will want to stay and explore the area after your tour!
