A Delightful Tour

My family and I enjoyed the Greenwich Village Food Tasting and Cultural Tour immensely! Curt was both informative and personable. He worked to engage every member of our tour. The variety and quality of the food samples were excellent. Each member of our family of four gives a big 'thumbs up' to this delightful experience. We loved trying foods new to us...and also the those familiar (warm chocolate chip cookies)! We have already recommended this tour to others. Thank you!

Fascinating History / Food Pretty Yummy
Fri, May 10, 13   10:00 AM wgray77 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Our tour guide Diana was one of the best we've ever had in terms of knowledge, enthusiasm, clarity of speech, shepherding of the group, etc. Chelsea Market is a cool place to browse around in, and our wanderings would not have been nearly as much fun without the guided tour to get us oriented. We'd recommend spending time after the tour to go back and visit more shops that we didn't get to sample. The only slightly disappointing part was the food which was fairly minimal and not of a great variety. Mostly carb/sandwich-type samples. It would have been nice to have a little of the fresh produce or seafood so much on display.

The highlight of our New York visit!

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tasting tour of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District! Our guide, Ed, was a fellow "foodie" and kept us interested and entertained while he shared the history and inner workings of the market and the Meatpacking District. In addition to the variety of delicious and generous tastings, we felt like we really got to know the area. It was fun to peek inside some of the new trendy restaurants. We even went back later to shop and have dinner! Highly recommend!

Our tour guide Diana was so enjoyable to tour Greenwich Village with. We toured with 3 kids (ages 8,12& 14) and they all agreed it was great fun. We tried new foods and would have loved to know about Greenwich Village's treasured restaurants and shops at the beginning of our NY trip! A ton of food as well!!

Highly Recommend

Really enjoyed the tour. Darrell was insightful, fun and very energetic. Would have liked to do more tastings outside of Chelsea market in the meat packing district, but that would be my only regret.

We had a great time on the tour. We especially liked the historical information providd on the property and neighborhood. The tastings were plentiful. We had no idea there were so many food establishments in Chelsea Market. Will recommend this tour to friends and locals alike!

EXCELLENT - can't wait to do another tour!
Sun, May 11, 08   11:30 AM wfarrell3 Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This tour of the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District was FANTASTIC! The food we sampled was delicious, and from places we probably never would have found on our own. We had plenty of food - and even came hungry as others recommended. Our tour guide was excellent - he was full of interesting information, was funny, friendly and did a great job. I'm so glad my husband found this tour information online - now I can't wait to do another one in a different area. My husband and I have spent plenty of time in NYC and crossed off all the "Have to do" touristy things, so we're always looking for something new to do - this was a great part of our latest trip in an area of town we had never really visited. I've suggested these tours to several people already and know we'll do a different one the next time we're in The Big Apple! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

sam did a great job!! have him do other tours too
Fri, Apr 18, 08   12:30 PM Weyrauch Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
my family (husband and 2 kids, ages 12 and 16) have done 2 other of your tours, and this one was terrific. we were pleasantly surprised, and sam did a super job in many ways:

he learned each of our names right away (that's a daunting task)

he joked around while teaching us historical facts

his enthusiasm was contagious

he was great with all types of people (my kids, the int'l tourists, and all)

he made us feel comfortable and involved in the tour -- rather than being

lectured he involved each of us with eye contact and fun questions

cant wait til you guys offer more tours of the city -- how bout harlem area? or

arthur avenue? or lower east side? or even upper east/west manhattan?

we will sign up for every one -- we find it fun, informative, and yummy!

you do a great job and thank you again to sam from sam/emily/john/ellen

Great experience !
Sun, May 1, 11   11:00 AM wethree Female 70+ International Tourist(s) Individual
I got tickets for myself and two friends for a Food Walk during our stay in New York. I'm so happy I did. We all felt that this was the highlight of a wonderful exciting few days. I thought that this would be a fun thing to do. It was so much more. We tasted lovely food, learned so much about the area we visited and Diana made it exciting with her wonderful energy. .In the next week or so, I'm going to arrange to go on a food walk in my own city. I expect that I'll find a friend to come with me.........Thanks for turning me on to Food Walks Diana.

This was my third food tour with Foods of NY, but the first time for my family members. We all had a great time. The guide (Rajim) was fun and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting NYC. What a great way to learn some history and experience different types of food within a given neighborhood.
