We really enjoyed the tour and found it very interesting. The tour guide provided much information along with being very entertaining. Of course, the samples of the delicious food was something to write home about!

We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Kurt the tour guide was excellent. Plenty of samples of all kinds of food. We would never have thought to visit this area had it not been for the tour. Surprised by the piano bar Kurt recommended- yes it was full of men but they were all gay!- A truely memorable evening!!

This was one of the most enjoyable excursions I've been on in NYC. The guide was funny and energetic - the food was FANTASTIC! You won't be disappointed. Well worth the cost of the ticket!!! We'll do it again next year!

The Chelsea/Meatpacking Tour was a great experience! My husband and I took my dad as an early Christmas gift, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was terrific (the portions are generous samples), the tour guide was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor, and we learned a great deal. For those considering bringing an infant along, we brought our 6 month old in the backpack carrier, and he loved it! We had considered bringing the stroller, but in retrospect, we're glad we carried him, as some of the stores have some congested areas. My husband is still talking about the tour- he says the day combined his favorite things- great food, great history, and time with family! We hope to try the Greenwich Village tour in the future. Thanks again!

Fabulous!! We thoroughly enjoyed our guide, Curt, who was very informative and entertaining. We visited 7 food establishments and every one of our tastings was delicious! I highly recommend this tour and would love to do the Greenwich Village food tasting tour on our next trip to New York.

This was a really wonderful tour. Our guide "Kurt" was wonderful, animated, and well informed. He did a superb job of detailing the history of Nabisco building, the renovation process, and the current lease holder and how they fit into the vision of Chelsey Market place. In addition Kurt gave us a wonderful tour of the "Meatpacking District" and the current renovation of that area. He kept it moving without it feeling rushed and there was never a dull moment. I am not a "tour package" kind of gal but this was the only way for one to get a feel for the rich history and information on this exciting area in such a short period. I would recommend it to anyone and would do it again myself. Julia Bledsoe Reno, Nevada
