Let me start by saying that I love everything about NYC and have come back often--for the last 52 years. I try to take at least one walking tour each time I visit... I feel it is the best way to really get to know & feel the particular area. This Chelsea/Meatpacking Tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was great--he was enthusiastic, knowledgable, helpful, and fun. I have already suggested this tour to my New York friends.

This tour and the wonderful guide Todd was one of our favorite events while spending 5 days in NYC. We had a small group of 7 at noon on Sunday which added to our enjoyment. The food tasting was great. We feel like we have been part an event and an area that will become a big tourist attraction in the next years as the words gets out and as the Meat Packing area grows with shops and restaurants. I would recommend it to anyone.

Far better than our expectations. Our guide (Erick?) was informative and funny. The pace was great, we saw a corner of NYC that we didn't know and had some great food as well. After talking to friends who live in NYC and thought htey knew the area, we realize we now know it much better. Thanks

Visiting a New Frontier

While having been in NYC a hundred times, I had never been to Chelsea Market and the Meat Packing District. It was a neighborhood that your mother told you to avoid, (part of the appeal no doubt). I was in town for the Big East basketball tourney and found this tour via City Search. I am fond of walking tours in NYC, London and wherever I find them. This is the first tour sponsored by Zerve I've taken. First, the sampling of different foods in a wholesale envirnoment was new and fun. Subsequently, I returned to the area the next day for lunch and for dinner at two of the places we had seen on the tour; good food, pricey, "Sex in the City" crowd. Secondly, I enjoyed the "other" discoveries at least as much as the advertised food tour, e.g., High Line Rail, meat on hooks on the sidewalk, Stella McCartney shoe store, Coyotte biker bar. Tour guide's insights re: history and tranistion of neighborhood were very interesting. Also visited an art exhibit in the neighborhood after the tour ended. The tour guide was entusiastic, well informed, and responsive to questions. Group was a good mix of age, sex, interests, etc. The limit of 10 persons per tour, mine was at max, was just right; more would have been a problem of logistics as well as chemistry. This tour costs more than others but the price was about right for the value received. Price is the main reason I did not give this 5 stars. I will take a Zerve tour again and have recommended it to others.

This tour was fabulous! From beginning to end Kurt gave us great background information on all of the places we visited. Many interesting facts throughout the entire 3 hour tour. Then there is the tasting of all sorts of foods and the samplings were plentiful. I would love to do it again!

This was an outstanding tour of Chelsea market. The tour guide (Darrel) was highly energetic, very knowledable, funny and entertaining. He kept everyone's attention throughout the tour. The food tasting was great as well, with a wide variety of samples to give us a good flavor of the marketplace. Don't miss this one and request Darrel if you can :)

The tour was great and provided not only an opportunity to taste foods local to the area, but it also provided us with the history of the market. Our guide, Daryl, was amazing and helped to bring everything to life. I would highly recommend this tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was the most informative and enjoyable three hours of our holiday! To be recommended to everyone, young and older. The guide was a pleasure to spend time with and impressed us by addressing everyone by their first name even though he had only just met us. What a great tour, thank you!
