Food Tasting Tour
Sun, May 2, 10   12:00 PM randarf1 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
I participated in a 3-hour tour of the west side of Greenwich Village on a Sunday afternoon. I expected the food to be a sampling of tasty local eclectic dishes, and it was indeed. I did not expect the depth and fantastic interest of the cultural remarks given by our tour guide. He was energetic, smart, and personable. I wish I could have taped his extraordinary monologues about the sites and the people of the area. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and recommend it heartily. I expect to do it again next chance I get.

Excellent way of finding out about the area

Three of us took part, age range from late 20's to late 50's. Heather was an excellent guide, enthusiastic, lots of local gossip and knowledge. Able to see areas not normally available to the average tourist.

Food samples were good, fresh, definitely wanted to go back for more.

Guide given for the area which would be invaluable if you returned to the area that you were sightseeing

Would recommend to friends and family and if we return to New York, which I am sure we will, we will be signing up for another one in a different area.

Tasting History

Joni and I were so happy to learn about the history of the neighborhood and to learn of the families who contributed the special flavors we got to experience. The guide was well informed and gracious. She new her material, was professional and allowed just the right amount of time for each stop. She was informative and kind and helped us to honor the residents and activities which are a part of the the daily life in Greenwich Village. As tourists we want to be respectful and welcomed, our guide helped us to be good neighbors. This tour was enthusiatically recommended to me and I will echo that sentiment to my friends who come to visit New York City.

A wonderful experience

Our tour leader was Raheem (spelling?). He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and fun. I loved every stop, including the bathroom breaks. This was my first trip to New York and this tour was one of the top 3 highlights for me (Ellis Island and Rockefeller Center being the other 2). The tour was a great way to see the area and learn about the culture there.

Loved the tour

I enjoyed the tour very much. The only complaint I would have was that when the tour was over I couldn't find X&O sauce! I tried a Chinese grocery store but that was impossible.

Will definately take another tour.

Nice break from the hustle & bustle

We took this tour on a Sunday while visiting the city. It was great to get away from the crowded tourist areas and to experience the neighborhood like a local! Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the Village. She pointed out many of the restaurants along the route we took and described them in case we wanted to go back to them later. The food we tried was varied, yummy, and definitely enough that we weren't hungry afterwards. This tour is a great way to spend an afternoon.

My brother gave me a gift certificate for the Chelsea Market tour for Christmas. We waited for the weather to get nice and went on the tour this past weekend. We loved it! Darryl was our guide and he was well informed, witty and entertaining. All the food tastings were wonderful and generous. I live in New York so I never would have taken this tour on my own. Now I hope to be able to take the rest of the food tours in the future.

THANKS - Maree was SUPER. Reminded me very much of the enthusiasm I show for my home town. Thank you again - and we particularly enjoyed the history of the neighbourhood also - not just the food. Kind cheers.

A fun and " food -filled" time in nyc

The tour of Chelsesa Market was certainly a highlight during my trip to New York. Kurt was a fantastic guide which kept our group entertained and a lot more knowledgable about the history of Chelsea Market and the surrounding Meat Packing Disctrict. I attended the tour with a friend who has been living in New York for the last six years and she thoroughly enjoyed herself as well - in fact, she just told me she's telling all her friends about it! This a wonderful way to spend a few hours in the city....ENJOY!
