Food, fun, and sites to love! August 2023

"Who could not love eating your way through Chelsea Market and then walk it off on the HighLine! My favorite spots were Takumi Taco, Filaga pizza and amazing non dairy ice cream from Seed+Mill. But then top all that wonderfulness off by walking the city on the highline - could not ask for anything more in a tour."

This tour was really cool and insightful. August 2023

“The market was amazing and SO MANY FOOD OPTIONS! It was unbelievable and oh so good. The walk of the High Line was super cool as well with the history and facts we were told along the way. Was a great way to walk off the meal and where we ended was perfect because we could keep exploring if we wanted to. Which we did!! Overall it was a really cool tour. Would highly recommend.”

Chelsea Yay July 2023

Chris was friendly and informative. My Mom and I both enjoyed hearing the history of the market. If we were on our own, I think we probably would have tried 1 or 2 food items, this tour allowed us to trying a variety, and things I may not have tried on my own. As somebody who has never been to the market, it was a wonderful intro. Next time I go, I’ll know right where I want to try next.

Interesting and Delicious! June 2023

Our group of 7 met Harry on a cold and breezy Sunday for our food tour. Harry was fun and friendly! He was very kind and waited for a late group to arrive before we headed out on our yummy food tour. Harry was extremely knowledgeable and organized. Each stop was fully prepared by Harry, and he provided interesting information at each stop. We felt well taken care of, well fed, and a bit more knowledgeable about the Chelsea area after our tour. I highly recommend!!
