Family looking for something different

This was our second tour. I would have never even known Chelsea Market was there, let alone all the unique things to see in the building. I am a New Yorker who moved to Central Connecticut and love to see new things in NY. My son (6) went with us and though it is really not geared to young children, he had a great time and loved all the tastings! Our guide was very nice to him and would include him on whatever she could (he was the only small child). We also had a 14 year old niece who really liked it. The history is amazing and the area is great. I can't wait to go back and shop some more! I only wish their were more tours to go on!

I would highly recommend this activity to anyone and I have been telling anyone who will listen. I've done both tours now with tourguide Cindy and she is fabulous. The history that she shares along with the great food would be hard to surpass. I just can't say enough great things about this tour. It was enjoyable for everyone - even the young boy in our group. All of the vendors in the Chelsea Market were very freindly as well. I had no idea all these changes were happing in that area. We will return many times I'm sure!

Would recommend the tour. Were surprised by the amount of time spent inside Chelsea market. Would prefer to spend more time outside, but not sure how much more there is to see in the meat packing district. Leader was well-prepared and very interesting.

We loved the Chelsea Market/Meat Packing District tour. The other 4 in our group had been on your Village tour and enjoyed it so much that they were anxious to do this one. We definitely want to do your Village tour soon. We certainly enjoyed the introduction to new places to shop and the restaurants. Your handouts are excellent. Tasteling is always fun. We appreciated the other information that was included, architectutre, etc. We would recommend it to anyone interested in exploring ther City.

Cindy was excellent--enthusiastic, vigorous, kept the large (larger than we expected) moving. Full of interesting pertinent facts and interesting sidelights. We went back to enjoy drinks at one of the venues and later dinner at another before theater on 20th. Great day.

We really enjoyed learning about the history of the Chelsea Market as well as the meatpacking district. The food was excellent, and I look forward to sampling more of it when I return to NY for my next visit.

The Chelsea tour was canceled. I was offered, and took the Greenwich Village tour instead. The guide was great. Very knowledgeage, and kept us mostly on track. It was more architeture and history and less food than I expected. The food servings were very small. I for one went away hungry.
