I would highly recommend it. I would think that the business' in the area would want you to continue. Even though they gave "samples" of food products, we later returned and bought many items from thoe same vendors. Quality of the food items were excellent. It was informative, probably knowing a little more history of the area would be good. Todd our tour guide was excellent. You might suggest to the owner of the Chelsea market that they should take some space and have a pictorial museum. How the neighbor hood has changed. what ethic groups were from that area. Getting to visit the B&B was a real treat!!!! Question of my own: We have done a food tour of Greenwich village area, do you have plans for doing a tour of any other area? Thank you.........

I thoroughly enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour, and have highly recommended it to people in Hawaii who will be visiting NYC soon for business and graduation. Todd was a great tour guide and provided us with much historical and current development information on the Meat Packing district. I look forward to returning in 2006 for my son's graduation, and anticipate a huge transformation. I took my son to the market the next day, to buy nigiri sushi and fish for sashimi; what a treat for a student away from home in the Islands.

We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal while we enjoyed delicious foods from the market. Todd, our tour guide, was knowledgable and genuinely enjoyed giving the tour. This made the experience that much more exciting. It was fantastic and we have already recommended this tour to family and friends.

I have to say that it was one of the best parts of our trip to New York!! The tour was very informative, fun and was a great way to see a special part of New York. I would definitely recommend it to anyone going to New York and actually already have. If we do make it back to New York again the Grenwich Village tour will definitely be on our list. Our guide Todd was great!

Great way to spend a day

Really enjoyed the tour, leader was well-informed and enthusiastic. It was very crowded, I would have preferred a better time, seems most tours ran two ish on weekends...probably the only thing I didn't like. I was full from all the tastings, very full, my husband was ready to go and eat dinner after we got home (two hours after end of tour). He is not a huge guy, maybe 10-15 pounds overweight, but it was not enough for him. If you are going solely for food, you can probably just buy a few things from lthe shops for less money, but then you won't have the guide telling you all the little details of things. The day was fun and interesting and informative....and yummy. My group of four loved it. I will be doing other tours in the future.
