Informative and Very Tasty

We had a fabulous time and our guide was well informed and very enthuastic in sharing the knowledge he had of the building and local area. We had such a wonderful time that we went back the next day and shopped until we almost dropped. The food was delicious and enough of a variety that I was satisfied without feeling I had been deprived. Definetly on our next visit to the city we will try another tour.

Aside from the tour being incredibly interesting (we learned so much history and neat factoids) and filling (there was sooo much delicious food!) our tour guide really made the experience extraordinary! Bob was awesome, always keeping the group excited. In addition to highly recommending this tour, I would strongly suggest everyone ask for Bob, he's the BEST!

If not for this tour, I would never have known that Chelsea/Meatpacking District is so much fun! Chelsea Market is an absolute gem, housing art and individual businesses that serve the most tasty foods. Even the Iron Chefs have restaurants there! Bob our tourguide was fun and easygoing, and extremely knowledgeable. We got a chance to hang out as the locals do and experience something outside of the normal tourist attractions. I really enjoyed myself and will definitely go on other tours the next time I return to NYC!

we have taken other tours of this type (6reenwich Village, Boston's North End). this was the most interesting of all. Curt was knowledgible and clever and most of all passionate about the area. I will highly recommend to others.

I learned so much about the Chelsea/Meat-packing district and I've been living in the NY/NJ area for most of my life. Kurt was a phenominal tour guide who definitely knew his stuff. I would go on this tour and other FoodsofNY tour in a second.

We had a blast. Myself, with my 3 daughters, ages 19-28. LOTS of delicious food. LOTS of interesting info (Cindy is a treasure--don't book without her!). I wear a brace for a very bad leg, and it was an easy walk. My one suggestion would be to include TWO bottles of water instead of one, at least on the very hot July days. Great time--will do this every year on our visit!

Can't wait to do another!

I had high expectations of the Chelsea Market Tour, as many friends had told me about these tours. The tour was wonderful and our leader, Cindy, full of energy and information. The food was good, but not the highlight of the trip, which was the information, historical, archtectural and foodie! I can not wait to bring my husband with me next time to do a different tour hopefully soon. I will certainly recommend the tour and already have!
