I would recommend this to anyone who has visited the major attractions in NY and wants to do something a bit different. The food in Chelsea Market was fantastic and the history tour of the neighborhood was very interesting.

Darryl our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. We sampled loads of different foodstuffs and had a great tour of the market and Meatpacking area - not to mention the hi-tec bathroom! Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Being in our sixties, we viewed this walking tour with a certain amount of trepidation, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Although we covered a fair amount of ground, the pace was comfortable, and the stories, anecdotes and personal experiences of our guide made it a truly light hearted and memorable day. There were more than ample tastings, plenty of background about the varied samples, but no pressure to buy. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the morning, the samples, the company of the rest of the group, but the services of our very knowledgeable and personable guide was in fact, "the icing on the cake" A big thankyou to you all !!

Curt from Canada was our guide and within minutes had remembered everyone's name - there were about 15 of us on the tour. We visited various and delicious eateries in the Chelsea Market sampling a few things here and there. It was all very interesting and great fun and then he showed us a couple of restaurants in the district and even a bed and breakfast place. I did the Village tour last year and thought I wouldnt find this as much fun, but I was wrong. I can very much recommend this as a fun and different thing to do in New York.

It was very helpful to have a guide provide a focus on the sprawling Chelsea market and we appreciated the background information on both the market and the meatpacking district.

The tour was great! Our guide Kurt was one of the best guides I have ever been with. His personality and knowledge were second to none. The food is great and the market is a must!! I was hoping to see more of the meat paking side of things, however; there is none of that in the tour as you just tour the district and not an actually meat paking plant. This is the only reason why I give it 4 stars and not 5.
