Full description
Chelsea Market and the High Line are two of NYC's best attractions. This food and history tour features incredible insights and stories as well as some delicious food and fantastic NYC views. Plus the tour guides are truly entertaining and it's enough food for lunch.

Did you know that although the area was originally residential, markets have existed in the district since the 1840s. People moved into tenements in the Meatpacking district in the 1820s to escape epidemics in what was then the main part of New York. In 1900, 250 slaughterhouses and packing plants filled the district; by the 1930s, those houses produced the nation’s third-largest volume of dressed meats. Five meatpacking companies still operate in the district. Boutiques and bars are more common than rump roasts these days, and the neighborhood continues to evolve almost daily.

The food included on the tour features a Japanese style taco, a VIP pastry sampler from Las Delicias Patisserie (gluten-free and vegan available), or a slice of pizza from Filaga. Grab a doughnut from Doughnuttery doughnut then enjoy a guided hot sauce tasting by a hot sauce sommelier. Have a quick little shopping adventure with an introduction and tote bag at Artists & Fleas.
