I did the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking Food Tour and it was very interesting. Our guide knew the places very well, and talked to us about the city, these neighborhoods, the stores, the ingredients. He also gave us good hints and was willing to help with any questions we could have about the city. During the tour we had chance... More

Traveling as a group on Valentine's day, we thought this would be a fun weekend event. All of us had a great time. Each restaurant on the Heart of the Village tour is different in culture and taste. Optional beverages are offered at some of the locations along the way. Italian, Indian, Mexican, coffee house, French bakery,...loved it! I had... More

Love food, enjoy walking, appreciate original? Well you'll love this tour. Simply the best 3 hour, $59.00 worth of entertainment you'll buy in New York.

We're not sure exactly what she eats for breakfast, but you could be right as she sure knows her history. Please come back to eat with us soon! More
