This tour was awesome! Would definately recommend it. Diana was a great guide- enthusiastic, with a great knowledge. Went back to the market a few days later on our own, and it just was not the same. Diana made the place come alive. a great experience. Would have done another food tour if we had the time.

Good food, informal, informative, funny Guide

My Friend and I wished we had done this on our first day of arriving then we might not have eaten at some bad restaurants. The Guide was funny, full of knowledge and random info. Maybe have some more savoury food on the tour we felt and perhaps one more sit down stop. We both wished at Eleni's we were given a cupcake rather than a muffin, seen as it was a cup cake shop . . . Highly recommend it though for a good introduction to a 'cool' area For us this was our only toursity thing to do and we were pretty pleased with our choice!

Very Informative Tour Leader - Great Tour

I'm a total foodie, so Chelsea Markets and the Meatpacking District really appealed to me. I loved hearing the history of the place and where it is going. Great stories about all the places we visited and our leader knew the answers to everyone of out questions. Great variety as well. My only comment would be if you want to see a great fish market come to Sydney Australia and let me take you through there, no other like it in the world. Thanks for having such a great and informative tour available would recommend it to everyone. In fact I already have and we will return again.

Kurt is a star and food was constant

Kurt is knowledgeable and extremely entertaining. The food tasting was constant and definitely more than a lunch worth. Fantastic value for money. The only negative for me is that I would liked to have walked more on the tour and been outside a wee bit more. Would recommend this tour.

Terrific Tour with Great Food and Excellent Guide

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District - Cindy is a fabulous guide - really knows the history and loves the city. She has a great sense of humor and makes the whole group feel welcome. (Also highly recommend Cindy for the Greenwich Village Tour which I took last year). Food was absolutely delicious - not one disappointment in the whole array - portions were just the right size and a good mix of sweet and savoury - from lobster bisque and clam chowder to tea biscuits and homemade pasta. They also make every attempt to accomodate people with food allergies or dietary restrictions. Trip up to the HighLine was a good intro into the area - wonderful to see how the old rail line was reclaimed. Would have loved to go into one of the old meat packing plants too. A great way to spend a few hours - highly recommended.

A Fab & Fun Tour

We (2 couples) really thought this tour was outstanding. Our tour leader, Kurt, was outstanding - he made a very good tour great. He is informative, hilarious, communicative and empathetic with every person in the group (and even learned all of our 16 names to boot!!). The food aspect of this tour was super. We were treated to many, many varied and delicious "goodies" and I'm sure everyone left sated and happy. This was the best of a number of similar tours we have taken and we obviously would heartily endorse it.
