This was a fun intro to New York , the food was an excellent taste of what the market had to offer and the little tour of the high line was great. Our guide had lots of interesting stories and histories but was never long winded or dry. More than a food tour; we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I would highly recommend this tour. The tastings were great and the tour guide Darryl was filled with interesting information on the history of Chelsea Market and surrounding area. So nice to mingle with people in the tour group and it was an amazing day.

What a great time we had! We actually did the Greenwich tour the first day and we did the Chelsea Market one the next. Both were great but we loved, loved the Greenwich tour. The food was amazing. The guide was a little better on the Greenwich tour - she was obviously very passionate about her job and had actually live in the Vlg. and obviously still loved it. The Chelsea tour was good too - the guide was just not as personable and more rehearsed. I think ALL the bites we had were really fantastic and that says a lot. I don't think there was anything we didn't like. Is there a better way to gain insight and history and explore some of NYC's cool neighborhoods? I don't think so. I will definitely bring my kids back to do a few!

We did the Chelsea tour and had a great time! It was such fun! We learned about and sampled some phenomenal food. If you are going to NYC - DO THIS!

Murray's Cheese is like finding heaven on earth! I learned all about olive oil at O! and had some great pizza at Joe's, along with lots of other great samples.

I went on the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District tour. Curt our tour guide was really great. He told us a lot about the shops in Chelsea Market. We were also able to sample some really good food from the shops in this area. After we went through the Chelsea Market we went to the Meatpacking District area where our tour guide was able to tell us about the history of that area. At first I thought three hours would be kind of long but it went by pretty quickly.

Informative, interesting, and historical overview of the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District. Food was good and generous portions were given. Diana was a very good tour guide and we learned a lot because of her!

You can go through the places listed in the tour description yourself but you can never get the history and stories that you get as a part of the tour. People can live in and around these areas their whole life without knowing of the origins and changes. This tour definitely made us appreciate the history and culture of this district. Definitely worth the money and the time. Food that we tasted as a part of the tour was delicious. Well planned and executed.

This was one of the best experiences we had in NYC. The Guide was informative and funny, loved all of the background and historical information. And, the food was absolutely fabulous! We visited shops that we likely may have passed by and purchased delicious gifts to take back home. My 82 year old Mother, 17 year old Daughter and I all had a terrific time proving that it is a great activity for a wide range of age groups.

The tour was diversified and the guide was very knowledgable. The serving portions were larger than any other tour I've been on. I would highly recommend this tour.

Chelsea Market / Meatpacking Food Tour
I have visited new York many times and this is one of my favorite things that I have done! I heard about it on yelp and we did the Chelsea/meat packing district tour. We were able to visit a lot of different restaurants/specialty stores and sample many different foods. The tour guide was very well respected everywhere that she went and it was obvious that Foods of NY has a very good relationship with the restaurant workers. The tour guide also included a lot of history about the districts and it was very interesting! Be sure to arrive hungry because there is A LOT of food sampling.
