Bert was great, the tastings fell flat

We went on one of the only rainy days of our entire stay in NY, Bert, our guide was great, full of interesting facts, with a great sense of humour! We did unfortunately find that the food element of the tour was underwhelming, very small serves, some actually not that tasty! The walk around a beautiful area of NY was worth it though.

being super into food, i was a little wary of the whole idea. my mother did a chinatown food tour in philadelphia and it was terriblee: bad food, boring guide, you get the jist.

well, i was completely delighted. our guide, who grew up in the neighborhood, was very knowledgable about both the food history of the area and other historic and culinary fun facts. our group was only 6 people, and we made a good group. our guide told us that with groups this small things tend to go great, but if they don't they tend to flop. so just a little tidbit of info there. we also got to ask questions and chat with the other tour members, which would have been harder in a large group.

the food we tasted was delicious, varied, and with involved cooks and restaurateurs who came out to meet us and talk about their food/food product.

some of the places we stopped at: a couple legit italiian places, one boasting the best mortadella sandwich ever: fresh baked ciabatta bread holding high quality mortadella and gooey melted cheese. there was a pizza place specializing in artichoke dip pizza, also: delightful pork soft shell tacos, prickly pear margaritas, massive coffee store, indian egg wrap and mango lassi, oh man!

The Chelsea Market/Meat Packing District Food Tour was fantastic! I experienced a variety of interesting and delicious foods. Curt, our amazing guide, was knowledgeable, developed a great rapport with group members, was considerate, and made the tour exciting. It was obvious that he was respected by workers in the various shops where we ate. The skywalk which was included in the tour was wonderful, as was the view and information shared with us there and at the high rise building we visited. At the end I was tired and completely satisfied with my experience. All in all I'd give this tour an A+!

Wonderful Experience

I was visiting NYC for the first time with my mom and sister. Chelsea Market was one of the "must see" places on our list, and I'm so glad we experienced it. As a first timer, I could not have navigated the Market without a tour guide, as it would have been overwhelming. Instead, our guide Darryl made it a fun, interesting and tasty experience! He had us laughing the whole time, while providing us with fun facts throughout the tour. What a bonus to get out beyond the market and visit the High Line Park and the Meat District. Amazing! I would recommend this tour for adults of all ages. However, I would not recommend for children.

Can't wait for the Soho food tour!

Every October my cousin runs a bus trip to NYC and we vowed to go every year and experience the Big Apple in a different way each time. This year I happened upon the Greenwich Village food tour and it was great! We had to wait a bit for some stragglers but we pretty much started on time. Our guide Karianne was great, she was animated and truly enjoyed her job, it showed. She kept us on track and added some interesting factoids along the way. The time flew by and before we knew it our tour was over. I am CRAVING a chocolate cookie right now, does Milk and Cookies deliver to Mass?

The food tour was great in the Chelsea market. What made it the BEST was our tour guide Curt! Hilarious funny and smart! We had a large group of 11! And he even remember our names when he saw some of our group in Greenwich. You must do this tour!!

Food tour good but canned
Tue, Oct 14, 14   11:00 AM lizcutler Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
While our tour guide knew a lot about the topics and was lively, I felt as if we were on an assembly line. His presentation, down to the jokes, was completely canned, almost memorized. Maybe that's inevitable. He worked very hard to get to know the names of the people on the tour, which was good, but the way he used those was hokey. I did like the architectural information about the neighborhood. The food, while delicious in quality and generous in quantity, was pretty much some form of cheese and grain in every place. I would have liked to understand more deeply the food history of the area. We enjoyed ourselves, but I wouldn't go back.

Fun in a place that would otherwise be confusing

My friend and I loved the tour. I'm an ex-New Yorker who doesn't take tours, but I was glad I did. I'm no longer used to crowds, and I probably would have walked through the Market as quickly as possible if I had been on my own. Our leader, Bob, was charming and well informed -- and the information he shared really gave us a sense of place. The snacks were delicious. The tour was definitely worth the cost.

Darryl was our amazing guide on this fabulous journey through Chelsea Market and the history of the Meatpacking District. We had plenty of delicious food to taste (and the presentation of each was wonderful!) while getting backstories about each vendor. Darryl is an extremely funny man and made the whole afternoon just a lovely experience. Don't think twice - book this tour, you'll be so happy you did!
