We loved the tour and our tour guide Kirk was great (personality, informative). Can't wait to do the Greenwich Village tour. Hope you'll add additional tours. Others on our group already did the Village and enjoyed it so much they did the Chelsea. I've already recommended it to friends & family.

I would recommend this activity. It gave us a chance to see parts of the city we wouldn't have been able to see on foot. It was informative and a lot of fun to see where different shows and movies have been filmed. I found myself referencing a lot of things learned on the tour throughout my trip. We took the tour early on in our trip and were then able go see some of the places on foot. Highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed it very much. Our guide, Kurt, was very informative and entertaining. We enjoyed the samples of food. Each food vendor had something unique to offer. We would recommend it to anyone who enjoys eating and trying new things.

We were the only locals (from the NY/NJ area) on the tour...the out-of-towners really seemed to enjoy it, as did we. It gave us a new persepective on a NYC neighborhood that we hadn't explored very often. It also gave us great ideas on where to eat next time we're in town. We can't wait to try some of the restaurants we were introduced to! The tastings were all delicious, and it was interesting to go behind-the-scenes at some of the establishments and to learn the history of how the Chelsea Market became what it is today. I would definitely recommend this tour to locals as well as out-of-towners. It's an informative and tasty way to spend a few hours in NYC and the price is definitely right!

The tour guide was excellent and showed us a lot of history of the Meat Packing District. All the food was excellent! The breads and pastries were unbelievable. I would recommend this food tour to anyone. Next time I'm in New York my husband and I will take the tour.

WE loved the tour!! Some of us had done the village tour(twice for me!) and we thought this tour was equally as enjoyable and informative. Curt, our guide was fantastic. I recommend these tours to anyone going to NYC--they are a great way to see some wonderful parts of the city!

I enjoyed the activity; I would have liked to spend less time in the Chelsea market itself, and perhaps have a tasting at one or more of the local new restaurants. The market and its architecture are, indeed, interesting, but perhaps varying the tour with some other vendors outside the market would enhance one's knowledge of the meatpacking district. I, however, enjoyed the tour as it opened my eyes to a new, exciting and interesting neigborhood. I liked our guide because he displayed lots of enthusiasm and knowledge and was eager to please the participants on the tour. I hope in time the tour will be expanded to include more restaurants outside the market as well as visits to the interesting new shops and boutiques; ie Stella McCartney's store. We were standing outside the store (McCartney's), could we, as the group, possibly have gone inside for a few minutes? It looked interesting and empty so they may have accomadated us by showing us the layout and styles of the store. I expect to return to the area on my own; something I would not have done had I not taken this tour. Thanks; how about a tour in Brooklyn or parts of the Bronx that may be diamonds in the rough?
