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.

The Chelsea Market tour was a lot of fun. Easy pace and good selection of food tasting. I definitely learned more about the area than if I walked it alone. Cindy was a wonderful guide, upbeat, and informative. Loved we started off with dessert first!

Highly recommend theChealsea Market/Meatpacking District Tour. Our tour guide was Darrell and he was awesome. Humerous and informative. Most impressed with the fact that he learned all 16 of the names in our group. So impressed with the Chealsea Market that we went back the next day to try a few more things.Worth every penny.

I booked this tour for our group of 7 adults on the recommendation of a friend. We came to NYC for theater but needed an interactive daytime experience. It was a hit! Everyone loved it. Cindy was a wonderful guide, full of information - not only about the food and vendors but the building, culture and history of the neighborhood. Next visit to NYC we will do the Greenwich Village tour AND re-visit Chelsea on our own to explore further and "savor" what we learned!
