There is a tour of Pike Street Market that lasts three hours thirty minutes and the wireless headsets makes hearing easy in what is sometimes a very crowded market. They have a real mix of food samples; from French Crepes, through a New York Deli sandwich; Indian curry; Pike Place Chowder; German sausage; Seattle's Best Coffee etc. Words of caution - this is not the tour for small children - nor for people with a very limited command of English. The bites at each stop are by no means full meals - they are decent samples though. At the end of the tour - you are pretty full.
One of the greatest cities i have ever been to, the places and all of the things to do in New York is just astounding. If you go to New York one day i highly recommend taking the Famous Fat Dave's Five Borough Eating Tours. These are private, customized eat-o-thons across the whole city conducted in a classic Checker cab by Famous Fat Dave himself: former Guss pickle man, Murray's cheesemonger, Nathan's hot dog vendor, and Orwasher's bread truck driver, and current licensed tour guide and cabbie.
