Our guide Sam was great - funny and knowledgeable - and the entire group has a great time. Sam did well to remember all of our names. Word of warning - Don't eat beforehand. I've recommended the tour to friends who live close. You don't need to love cooking to find the tour interesting.

The info about Chelsea Mkt. vendors was interesting but decreased significantly as the tour progressed. Several slow times on the tour when we waited for the next "stop" could be improved and shortened in length with the same fantastic experience.

Learned about Chelsea Market in more depth than possibly imagined. Tour guide was entertaining,and knowledgeable about each phase of the tour. Sampling and watching the foods being prepared was enjoyable. Getting an in depth history lesson about the Market an the Meat Packing District was a plus.

The Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District tour was a great time. I live in NYC and took family to this. I'd recommend it to out-of-towners and New Yorkers alike. Our guide, Cyndi, was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgable.

The tour was well paced lead by an impressive tour guide with an incredible nack for names. The only suggestion I would make is that the tour ended back at the market. If we had ended back at the market, I believe we would have made some purchases. Great day overall.

great sampling of fresh food, entertaining

We all enjoyed the tour of the Chelsea Market and its environs. This is a very interesting area and is already showing it's growth and popularity. Our guide, Sam, was fun and full of knowledge. Had I not committed to this tour, I probably would not have explored this area. There are some really fine restaurants in the neighborhood that I would definitely try when we go back. The food tours are a great source of entertainment while learning areas of new york. My only regret is not having an opportunity to tour the Food TV network just above the market. Hopefully, someday, the tour will be inclusive of this.

my family (husband and 2 kids, ages 12 and 16) have done 2 other of your tours, and this one was terrific. we were pleasantly surprised, and sam did a super job in many ways: he learned each of our names right away (that's a daunting task) he joked around while teaching us historical facts his enthusiasm was contagious he was great with all types of people (my kids, the int'l tourists, and all) he made us feel comfortable and involved in the tour -- rather than being lectured he involved each of us with eye contact and fun questions cant wait til you guys offer more tours of the city -- how bout harlem area? or arthur avenue? or lower east side? or even upper east/west manhattan? we will sign up for every one -- we find it fun, informative, and yummy! you do a great job and thank you again to sam from sam/emily/john/ellen
