BOB WAS A GREAT GUIDE ON THIS TOUR OF CHELSEA MARKET AREA. HIS KNOLEDGE OF THE HISTORY OF THIS AREA WAS EVIDENT AS WE ALL WANTED TO LEARN DETAILS OF THE OLD NABISCO FACTORY AND SURROUNDING AREA. WHILE STROLLING SAMPLING THE MARKETS CULINARY DELIGHTS WE ALL ENGAGED IN GREAT CONVERSATION. WE ALL SURE HAD A GOOD LAUGH PASSING HOGS & HEFFERS THEN TRYING TO SNEEK A PEEK INTO THE BUDA BAR WHERE WE WERE TURNED AWAY BY A VERY RUDE GENTLEMAN. ( OUR U.S. DOLLARS WERE NO GOOD THERE I GUESS THEY ONLY TAKE FRENCH EUROS ) I DON'T WANT TO GIVE ALL THE DETAILS OF THIS TOUR AWAY BUT I AM SURE ANYONE WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME ON THIS ONE . ENJOY AL

We had a great time eating our way through Chelsea market. Our guide was lots of fun and added many tidbits that made our tour relaxed and enjoyable. I cant wait to go back and will do another tour. It was the favorite part of our NYC trip.

My husband and I and another couple experienced the tour. The tour guide, Bob was exceptional, his demeanor and knowledge made the tour not only very informational but quite pleasant. We've taken the knowledge we learned and have had many conversations with whomever will listen. We plan on taking this tour again with our kids! I would highly recommend it!

Wonderful tour of Chelsea & the Meat Packing Area
Sun, May 11, 08   11:30 AM njobtravel Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
This was a wonderful tour that started in the Chelsea Market. We visited and ate at most of the stores/shops, a great varied selection of foods and drink (Chocolate Milk that was to die for and Red Tea). Then our guide Darrell, who has to be one of the best, walked us around the area, telling us about the past, present, and future of the area, esp the Meat Packing District. We went to the top of a hotel, whose name is the same as one of the streets but I can't remember it except it started with a G, and we were able to see the area from way above so that was really interesting. Again Darrell was nice, informative, funny, an excellent guide! Take this tour and you will not be disappointed. Also they give you a booklet/handout of the area that describes what you will be seeing. The 3 hours went by way too quickly. I had such a good time I went back a couple of days later and did some shopping at the Chelsea Market. And my next trip to New York will definitely include a visit to Chelsea.

EXCELLENT - can't wait to do another tour!

This tour of the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District was FANTASTIC! The food we sampled was delicious, and from places we probably never would have found on our own. We had plenty of food - and even came hungry as others recommended. Our tour guide was excellent - he was full of interesting information, was funny, friendly and did a great job. I'm so glad my husband found this tour information online - now I can't wait to do another one in a different area. My husband and I have spent plenty of time in NYC and crossed off all the "Have to do" touristy things, so we're always looking for something new to do - this was a great part of our latest trip in an area of town we had never really visited. I've suggested these tours to several people already and know we'll do a different one the next time we're in The Big Apple! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

This is a phenomenal tour. The food is delicious and the tour guide (Darryl) was absolutely fabulous. I've already told a number of people about this tour. It's a very interesting area that I knew nothing about. I learned a ton and ate fantastically. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

One of the best Afternoons spent in the city

This was the best Birthday gift ever! Thanks to my husband we had the most fantastic time with at Chelsea Market tour. Our guide was Kurt and he was terrific, we laughed so much. His abilities to learn everyones names were great. There were 16 of us and it felt like he knew all of us in a matter of minutes. He was very funny, but very knowledgeable. Samples food items were in ample portions. We did not need lunch or dinner for a while after the tour. It was great to see the comradary among the vendors in the Market and Kurt ( our guide) They all knew him and welcomed the entire group with open arms. I must have recommended the tour to at least 10 people already. Please , keep up the good work and we are already signed up for another tour ( Greenwich Village tour)..
