This was the best part of our vacation, my wife booked the tour & as a good husband , I just said ok thinking great this is going to be a time waster for me...But I was so wrong, the tour was filled with information great food & Kurt our outstanding tour guide keep or group feeling a one on one connection...he was the best & now when we go back to NY, I want to do the other tours as well! Every step was detail from the first place we met to the very end. So men just say yes with your wife or girl friend or friends and book it and ask for Kurt ...you will enjoy the tour!!!

Passionate New Yorker shares her knowledge & love

Cindy will whirl you through Chelsea Market in typical NY style. She is a wealth of knowledge and keeps the group moving to maximize your experience. Plan to stay an hour or so after the tour because she doesn't allow for shopping time -- which is good!

Informative - GreatWay To Discover New Area of NYC

This tour offers great insights into the Chelsea Market & Meatpacking District area - allowing you to visit shops and learn about the history of the area. Without a guide, you'd never understand what you're seeing or why you're tasting what you're tasting. Learning about the revitalization of this area was interesting - what they've transformed the area into in just 10 short years is remarkable! Definitely worth the visit.

Great way to spend a day

Really enjoyed the tour, leader was well-informed and enthusiastic. It was very crowded, I would have preferred a better time, seems most tours ran two ish on weekends...probably the only thing I didn't like. I was full from all the tastings, very full, my husband was ready to go and eat dinner after we got home (two hours after end of tour). He is not a huge guy, maybe 10-15 pounds overweight, but it was not enough for him. If you are going solely for food, you can probably just buy a few things from lthe shops for less money, but then you won't have the guide telling you all the little details of things. The day was fun and interesting and informative....and yummy. My group of four loved it. I will be doing other tours in the future.

What a great saturday afternoon. I got this as a gift for a friend of mine and we loved it. The tastings were generous, our guide was extremely knowledgeable. I recommend this to anyone! We were stuffed! We also learned some information about the area that we did not know before!

I would recommend this tour to anyone. The history of the markets is fascinating and the food and shopping options are great. My wife and I ended up spending another 3-4hrs at the markets after the tour had ended.

Bigger Samples Would Be Better

The Chelsea Market building is a great building, and the stores are wonderful, however I thought the sample sizes of all the product were too small. I didn't really feel very full by the end of the tour. The history of the High Line and the new fashion boutiques was lovely.
