Worth Seeing - even for locals

We are technically but not really tourists up a few times a year to see relatives that live in the city. Found good reviews on citysearch of these tours and decided to check one out. What a great decision. This was anything but cheesy with great info and food along the way. Enough to fill you up for lunch and then some. The tastings are also spread out from beginning until almost the end, so you don't get too full too quick but also arent left starving until some big meal at the end. We both really enjoyed this and will most likely try to go on one of the other tours on our next trip. Thanks Bob for a great tour! Joel and Jenny

This tour was very worthwhile. I enjoyed the food samplings and the meatpacking district cultural background. Our guide was very friendly and well informed. Altogether, a rewarding experience.

This is a great experience! Can't think of a better way to learn about the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District, both historically and present day. The food samples along the way are more than adequate. Can't wait to try one of the other tours on our next visit to the City!

If you're debating on tours...go with Greenwich

I had already been on the Greenwich tour so I thought I would try out the meatpacking district/chelsea. I was not as happy with this one. I LOVED the greenwich one. I felt you got more for your money with Greenwich. The Chelsea was onlye a tour of one mini mall area and not really the surrounding areas. The food was boring and not too much variety. The tour guide was late and kept leaving the group. Though he was super nice I felt he was more of a sales sperson than a guide. He was constantly trying to push products.

Entertaining (and filling) way to get to know NYC

This is my second Food Tour in NYC. I "convinced" my husband and adult daughter to come with me and by the end of the tour they were hooked. Our tour guide Sam was knowledgable and kept things moving. The food was excellent and the helpings were more then generous. In fact, by the end I was turning away food. Plenty of opportunity to purchase things, and an excellent way to hear some history of the area. I have been visiting NYC for years, these tours have provided me a start to explore areas I don't usually go to. Chelsea Market is now on my list of places to stop. Thanks so much and I'll be sure to use your tour in the future.

This tour was fabulous! Our tour guide Bobby, possessed a wealth of information about the Chelsea Market as well was the shops and restaurants in the Meatpacking District. His enthusiasm and charm went a long way with our group! The foods we sampled which were generous in portion and delicious. I can't wait to take the other tours your company offers!

Even if you only have a couple of days in NYC, make sure you book this tour and meet Kurt, the fabulous tourguide and you'll have a brilliant time including some really good food and lots of laughter. He's brilliant, he made this tour very special. If you want to challenge him, tell him you have a really awkward name, he remembers all names within 10 sec and then includes them throughout the tour. The 3 hours seemed to be passing by and he tried to show us lots of places, even though they didn't have agreements. So we ended up going into empty bars and night clubs, into hotel bars having the best view over NYC and my personal highlight of the show, you get to see some very cool funky modern toilets...with loads of buttons to press (make sure you ask him to see this). It's a great door of the chelsea market, mainly indoors (in case it's raining or cold) and definitly worth the time & money.
