Traveler Tips


If you are looking for a fun way to kill a few hours, get a nice lunch and learn something - this is a great tour.Just do it!
I would highly suggest starting the tour a little later as the tour started off with sweets and ended with sweets.
But overall a good time and definitely worth a visit for outside visitors.

Chelsea Market & The Highline on a rainy day
Janet_S, Nov 2022
Experiencied Chelsea Market & the Highline Walk without crowds (it was raining out)! Chris, our tour guide, was friendly, informative and personable! Worked hard to keep us well fed and gave just enough history to keep us interested.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you for leaving us a review for your Chelsea Market & High Line Food tour!
Those tacos!
Donna_M, Nov 2022
This was fantastic experience! Our tour guide Chris was amazing. Not only was he personable, but he provided so much history and details throughout the tour. He took the time to talk with each group. The food … the best fusion taco! Pizza, ice-cream, chocolate, wontons, donuts and more. We ended with a tour through Hudson Bay which was really interesting and a great way to walk off those calories. Recommend this tour! Thank you Chris for an awesome adventure!!!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you Donna for the amazing review! We are happy to hear that you had such a good time and will pass along your kind words to Chris!
We Love New York!
Nory_H, Oct 2022
Our tour guide was friendly. We learned some things about CM, HL & HY. Food tasting was delish. First time trying them @CM. The places we’ve seen were very nice. Just wished we had headsets to listen to the guide. We missed a lot of info esp when we need to take pix.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you for your feedback. Our guests typically find the small group environment negates the need for headsets, so we apologize this wasn't your experience. We are happy to hear you enjoyed all of the tastings!
Thoroughly enjoyed! ...
