Delicious Discovery

My husband and I had a great time learning about the history of the Meatpacking District of yesteryear in NYC and one man's vision to develop the Chelsea Market. Our guide, Bob, was the best - very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, with a great sense of humor. There were a variety of food samplings of generous proportions and all were very tasty. We did not walk away hungry. I highly recommend this tour to those who like to learn about the culture and history of our nation.

Too expensive, too crowded, bad food quality

Our guide was quite knowledgeable, a show-off but polite individual. On the Sunday we took the tour the Chelsea market was too crowded which made moving around as a group difficult. We were disappointed with the quality of the food. Everything was just packed with calories, nothing was healthy. Besides, on the times we were sitting to try food there was never enough chairs for everybody in our group. I have done already the tour on the West Village and it was much, much better in terms of information about the neighborhood, the food and the quality of the whole experience . Honestly, I do not recommend the Chelsea Market- Meat packing area to any one. You can find all the information the guide provided in any guide of NY. So, go by yourself to the Chelsea Market, the Highland Park, choose your own food and save the tip to the waiter in a good restaurant.

This is my second tour and they do not disappoint. The food is great and you get to try small servings from many different places. It was definitely enough for dinner for myself. The best part is the combination of all the history the guide gives you with the food tour. Well worth it.

The food tour was great in the Chelsea market. What made it the BEST was our tour guide Curt! Hilarious funny and smart! We had a large group of 11! And he even remember our names when he saw some of our group in Greenwich. You must do this tour!!

Our tour guide, Cindy, was both knowledgeable and entertaining! We enjoyed all the food samples and the information she gave us about Chelsea Market and the surrounding area. We certainly did not need a meal after sampling all the good food on the tour. I would highly recommend this tour and hope to experience one of the other food tours on my next visit.

Curt was a highly entertaining and knowledgeable guide. He knew everyone's name (16) and provided interesting facts and funny stories. He kept us on track and even took us to the penthouse bar of a hotel. Highly recommend the tour and Curt.
