Authentic NYC Experience!

This was a great tour. The last time I was in NYC I did the Greenwich Village tour (the original one) and felt like I got a much better idea of New York than Times Square and Fifth Avenue! (Not that there is anything wrong with that stuff, but there is a lot more to experience!). The Chelsea Market has a lot of history and our dynamic tour guide was able to convey that to us in a fun and interesting manner. About 2/3 of this tour takes place inside the Chelsa Market (which is airconditioned!) and the rest outside walking around the Meat Packing District. Great food samplings along the way! We were very full and weren't hungry until our late supper!! Leave yourself some time before your next activity so you can go back to the Market and buy anything you sampled and might want to take home with you! I really recommend this to anyone who wants to go home feeling more like a local than a tourist!!

i would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a different way to see the "hoods" of New York. We learned about the history of the area, got to visit some of the stores and restaurants and try their food too. Next time we will definitely try one of the other Food Tours offered.

Don't miss this chance to really get to know the stories behind the area. I have taken both this tour and the Chelsea...highly recommend both and for the price its worth it to do both tours during your visit!

We only booked on one food tour because we were worried that if we had to cancel our trip, we would not have backup from Zerve. We made the trip, and the Chelsea tour was wonderful. We would have booked the rest but they were full. So, if you know you are definitely coming to NY, book all their tours. You won't regret it. It definitely beats looking at the gazilion Picassos at Moma and the Met. Our guide Kurt, was charming, did a great job.

Totally worth it!

I went on the other food tours and this one was just as good as the other ones. Our tour guide Curt was really knowledgeable and pretty funny too. I would seriously recommend these tours to anyone visiting to NYC. It's also a good way to find out more about the neighbourhoods. The tasting portions were very generous as well. All I have to say is it's worth your buck!

Green Village was my first choice, however, I think this is better tour for me. I won't go in deep Chelsea Market since only few info and limited day in my NY trip. Me,from Taiwan, and my friend, who came from the UK, had great time. We even changed our itinerary to visit Chelsea dis again. We had inexpensive oyster in lobster place and a great dinner in Pastis, the recommonded French bistro. It's really worth to participate if you want to experience some local taste. ^_^

Good way to discover new areas & good restaurants

As visitors to NYC this tour was a great way to discover a new area, and good shops and restaurants. The food tasting was really good too! The guide was really friendly and the group small enough to feel one got personal attention.

Entertaining and enlightening

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She guided us around with interesting facts about the Chelsea market and the vendors that were there. We got to see two Iron Chef restaurants which was quite a treat and got to taste new foods at the Chelsea Market. A great time was had by my husband and myself.

made you feel at home and familiar with the area

Entertaining and interesting overview of both Chelsea and Meat Packing District with nice samples from local stores which resulted in me going back to Chelsea Market several times to eat and drink. Guide was very helpful with other suggestions on where to go in the area.
