We had such a wonderful time on this tour! Our guide Chris made every moment memorable- he shared such a wealth of fascinating insights related to history, architecture, art, and of course cuisine! The stops we made were all so fun and yummy, and I was in awe of the wealth of knowledge he could share in terms of recommendations of other spots in NYC to visit. We can’t wait to try another tour with Like A Local!

Have to give a huge shout out to our guide who was super nice and worked so hard to be sure as a gluten-free diner, that I had a good lunch experience at the Chelsea Market. Of course there will be GF options hidden somewhere within that sprawling food court of options, but without drawing attention to my GF status, he sourced really great alternatives: some wonderful artisanal honey tastings, crispy rice-shell tacos instead of pizza, a fun bubble tea instead of a cookie, a mochi treat instead of donuts, etc. He truly wanted all guests to enjoy the tour by asking and taking input from each person on their preferences! Even going back to the stall if something wasn't just right! And we had a diverse group! It was also kismit that our fellow tourists/locals were a fun bunch and rolled with whatever came our way! Snow delayed our start to the High Line tour, but we still saw the art, learned alot and had a nice, long walk to work off the huge lunch! It was such a fun time!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you for the fantastic review! We're thrilled that you not only enjoyed the delicious food but also had a great time with your guide.

We thought Lara was good,...
Yvonne_G, Dec 2023
We thought Lara was good, though not excellent. She appeared disorganised, partly because some people were late and because at least one of the six food stops was closed. The story was not about history, but there was scant about the history of Chelsea Market, nor Pier 57. This was disappointing, but it did pick up on the High-Line. However, the High Line walk showed up quite a weakness. Chelsea Market was exceptionally busy and often it was difficult to hear what Lara was saying, buy on the High Line, after an interesting introduction Lara waked off chatting to the nearest person, but thest of the group heard nothing until Lara stopped and waited (although not always until the last person reched the group, through the throng of people coming towards us. We recognise that you may be a small company, but today’s best tours give every one of their guests an ear piece linked to the guide’s microphone, which are called (it seems universally, regardless of make) as Whispers. In this way, especially on a walk or when there are many other people around, they repay the extra cost brilliantly. Hope these points are helpful. Due to the relative negativity, you do not have to post this fedback, just heed it on behalf of all future guests.
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Thank you Yvonne for taking time to leave us your feedback. As a small business reviews are vital to our success, so we take this feedback with great consideration. Whisper devices can be a great asset for some tours, especially larger group tours. Part of our appeal is keeping our group sizes smaller to create a more intimate environment for our guests. We apologize this led to you feeling you missed information and will be sure to follow up with Lara on some key training pieces. We hope you walked away with a better taste of 2 delicious NYC neighborhoods!
Excellent Tour!
BetsyElizabeth_T, Dec 2023
Laura, our guide, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable, funny (in a good way!) and adaptable. My friend and I took a wrong train and were very late. We went to the Chelsea Market in the off chance that we could find the tour group. We found it and Laura was very welcoming! We enjoyed the terrific food 😋, Laura's wit, and the interesting information she shared with us. Next time I visit NYC, I will be sure to look up your great group for another adventure! 😊
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Your fantastic review has put a smile on our faces! We're overjoyed that you had a great time with us. Thank you for choosing our tour and for taking the time to share your positive experience. We look forward to welcoming you back for more unforgettable moments!

Learned a lot of cool history about Chelsea Market and Highline. Food was fantastic, try the hot sauce tasting!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Thanks Daniel for taking the time to leave us a 5 star review! We appreciate you taking our tour!
Great tour of Chelsea and Pier 57 markets.
Laura_S, Dec 2023
We really enjoyed our Chelsea Market and Highline tour this week. Our guide Laura was friendly and knowledgeable and really made the tour for us. The tastings in Chelsea Market were great and we loved the new Pier 57 market - would not have known about that if we hadn’t been on the tour. We had donuts, tacos, pizza, cookies, nata, dumplings. All very tasty. We felt it would be better to finish at the markets so start the tour at Hudsons Yard. Or alternatively spend longer in markets and make Highline walk optional at end - can still tell guests all about it but that bit didn’t sit together well with the two markets.
