This was a different and fun way to enjoy New York City. We learned a lot. It is a great way to incoporate lunch into your tour of NYC. Marie, our tour guide, was very informative and went to great lengths to ensure we all had a great time.

An outstanding tour!

Our tour guide, Michael was outstanding, I throughly enjoyed the tour, while learning a lot of history of the Village. I would suggest , you provide a small glass of wine with the wonderful cheese, if possible and a small glass of milk with the delicious chocolate chip cookie. I will recommend this tour to my friends.

Fantastic Tour

This tour was recommended to me by a friend, and I am so glad that I took it. The guide was excellent and so informative. The tasting was so much fun and I had no idea that the Chelsea Market had so much to offer. I highly advise taking the tour. My granddaughter was with me and she is 18. She enjoyed the tour as much as I did and was never bored.

Great history of the Meatpacking District

This food tour centered mostly around the Chelsea Marketplace, and it was very informative about not only the large wholesale food providers, but also the history of the building. It covered the building's past lives including the restoration and revival to its form today. The last part of the tour took us outside and around the neighborhood. It is a fascinating part of the city that is now in a major transition. All of the tastings were in the marketplace-I wish we had had some tastings in a couple of the restaurants outside. The tastings included too many sweets for my palate-would have enjoyed more "real food" from restaurants etc. But it was well worth it-there was a lot of food, and you definitely won't go hungry!

Food focus

This activity is very focused on food in the neighborhood: restaurants, bakeries and stores. To learn about the literary or artistic Greenwich Village you need to take another tour. The information provided is very interesting and can be very usefull with visiting family or friends.

What a great way to spend an afternoon!! Our guide Daryl was wonderful and he really made the tour fun.. The food samples were more than ample for lunch so do not eat before you do the tour. The meatpacking tour was very interesting and informative. What a fun afternoon!!! I would highly recommend this tour.

This tour was one of the best things I have ever done in NYC. Michael, our tour guide, provided us with a wonderful afternoon of good food mixed with history and architecture. It was amazing, and I not only learned Greenwich Village history, but have discovered many restaurants and clubs that I will certainly try out in the future. We literally walked around the block, but it felt like we toured around the world. I highly recommend this tour, and am going to sign up for another one in the Meatpacking District when I return to NYC next month. It has also given me some amazing places to take friends when we visit.

A definite "must do" activity in New York City!

I was thrilled to find space for the Chelsea Market tour during my recent trip to NYC. I went with another friend from Atlanta along with our 13-year old daughters. They were not as taken by the tour as we were until there was a celeb citing (Lindsey Lohan), then another, almost (Beyonce). The Chelsea Market was full of great places and the food was more than generous. It was a great value for $40 and a deal for the teenagers at $20. It was fun to go behind the scenes in the market and also into some of the most incredible restaurants in the Meatpacking District. Our guide, Kurt, was full of energy and information. I would highly recommend this tour and hope to go on another on my next trip! E. Currie, Atlanta, GA

i went back to the cookie shop 3 times afterward and even purchased some cookie dough to bring back back to australia!. the tour guide(sorry cant remember his name, but very nice, good humour and informative)gave good history about the area, i just wish i was spending more time in new york to go back to all the resturants again for a meal.

i told my local friends about the tour and now they want to do the tour aswell.

thanks for a great and informative 3hours!

This tour was recommended to us by friends. I didn't think my husband would like it and was not going to book it. The night before we left for NY, I decided, why not - my friends were so insistent. I have no regrets! My husband REALLY enjoyed the tour! We had a GREAT tour guide, Mike was his name, and we had a fun group. This area is so full of history and the food was great. I felt like we had gone back in time, when people had to shop daily for their groceries and such. Rocco's Bakery was my favorite - just to look at the artistic pasteries was fascinating. After the tour we had lunch at the Home Restaurant which was mentioned on our tour. It was quaint, friendly and very good food. I highly recommend this tour, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Wonderful way to experience the city

My mom and I took this tour hoping to see an inside look at Greenwich Village. We were not disappointed! Our guide, Marie, was fantastic and showed us many off the beaten path houses, restaurants, bars, theaters, etc. The food was all very good and the portions were huge for a tasting! I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family, and will certainly try one of the other Food Tours on future trips.

My daughter and I took the Greenwich Village tour last week and enjoyed it more than I could have imagined. Our tour guide, Cindy, was fun and funny, and very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and the history of the area. It was a wonderful experience, and one we'll certainly recommend.

Great Tour, Great Guide

This is our second food tour, the first being the food tour of the Village. Both were exceptionally good. We recommend these tours to anyone who will listen. Our guide for the Chelsea tour was terrific. We felt he went out of his way to make the experience the best it could be. We want to go again!!
