It was well presented by our tour guide. The shops that we visited were excellent and the tastings as well. I would be very happy to recommend this tour to anyone as one of the many places that should be seen.

Took tour with my 25 yr old daughter and 14 others ..a variety of ages and backgrounds. Our tour guide was animated, interesting, and informative. We had lots of fun, laughs, and a variety of foods. Definitely would recommend.

It was fun to learn about the building and the neighborhood AND eat while you're doing it. I'd recommend it!

This is a great tour that won't leave you as stuffed as you might think since there is quite a bit of walking to burn off the calories from all the delicious tastings, though I did skip breakfast since I was on the 10:30am tour after reading that suggestion in another review. Bob was a wonderful guide and I truly enjoyed the time spent in his company as well as that of our group which consisted of locals and travelers. I was by myself, and late thanks to a cab driver taking me on a way out of the way route resulting in me jumping out of the cab and sprinting the final 9 blocks, but the office staff was very helpful in directing me to where I could meet up with the group and Bob was welcoming and assured me I hadn't missed the first tasting. Whew!! The tastings covered a broad range of foods available at the Market and there was something for everyone. So go, eat, and enjoy!

Chelsea Market/MP District Disappointment
Fri, Sep 21, 12   10:00 AM jandriscoll Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
If you are expecting a market on the scale of la Boqueria in Barcelona then this is not it. It's a very commercial market in an interesting old building, which has sympathetically been renovated to retain some of the original features, but the individual shops make for mostly a sterile experience. This is countered by a standup comic who doubles as our guide on the days he doesn't have a gig. The Meat Packing District accessed by a walk along the High-line was interesting and our final stop in an old butchers shop for a tasting was excellent.

The food samples were top notch. There was more than enough food given during the tour, and our host was wonderful at providing information about the market and it's history. Would highly recommend. The Highline was an added bonus of touring the area.

My wife and I had a fantastic time and our guide was full of energy and jokes. The food was great! Would recommend this tour to anyone on the fence. The guide was very personal and made great lengths in talking to us by our names just by meeting our group for the first time. We loved the personal touch at the Italian restaurant and the birthday singing for my wife.

Bob, our tour guide, made the tour what it was. He is extremely knowledgeable, not just about the food establishments we visited, but, more generally, about the history of the area we visited and of Manhattan.
