Really enjoyable tour, full of interesting facts. What really made it, was the tour guide who was so much fun. Would highly recommend it, even our 14 year old daughter enjoyed it.

More Chelsea Market than Meatpacking district

My expectations of the tour were to learn and see something about the history of the meatpacking district. Yes, the title of the tour says chelsea mkt /...... still I hoped to see more of the other part of the title. Instead most part of the tour was spend inside the market. The market itself was nice, the food-tasting was OK, but if you don't mind missing some explanatory details and marketing of the shops you can do this on your own easily too. Finally outside the market strolling around the area was nice and interesting. Regarding the organization this was more than ok and very good arranged. The guide Sam was on-time and very entertaining, so a big plus for him! Conclusion; all was well guided and organized, but I would not do it again. I will read other peoples comments first before booking a tour to be sure it will meet my expectations.

Enjoyed the tour and Sam, our tour guide. Have taken the Greenwich Village tour and liked it better. Although the history of the Chelsea Market Building, and its owner/developer, is interesting, it's not as much fun as the history of the Village and its changing residents.

We really enjoyed this tour. There was quite a lot of walking involved, but the Chelsea Market was fully under cover, and had nice smooth walkways which made access nice and easy, as I was travelling with my sister who uses a walking frame - the tour would be accessible for wheelchairs, pushchairs etc. The tastings were great - really good cookies at the first stop, and our guide was very informative with history of the area - and amusing too. Then we walked through the meatpacking district, which was a little harder for anyone with wheels, but still accessible, and our guide made sure we were able to keep up. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would recommend it to anyone else, and would like to try some of the other tours if we are ever back in New York if they are as good as this one.

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district. Our tourguide, Sam, had a lot of energy and really knew what he was talking about. He made the tour personal and informational. . .I would recommend this tour to everyone I know who's into food and history:)

Everything was perfect. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent with a wide variety. I love the food tours of NY--I did the Greenwich Village tour and that was also excellent. Would you mind sending me some information on the other tours that are offered?

Our tour guide, Kurt, was the best! My husband and I loved hearing about the history of the Market, and surrounding areas. The food tastings were great - and were such terrific samples. We would highly recommend this tour - especially with Kurt as the guide.

My husband is a foodie and if you are too, you will love this tour. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes because there's a lot of standing and walking. Our tour guide, Samson, was excellent and was full of lots of good trivia information. A must for any tourist.
