This was our second food tour, having taken the central Village tour last summer. Really enjoyed the guided tour including the history of the meat packing district. The samples of food were delicious and more than enough to satisfy our hunger. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Fabulous tour of Chelsea Market and the Meat Packing District. Food tastings at multiple locations. Red Velvet cupcakes from Eleni's are yummy. Our tour guide Curtis was extremely knowledgible and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour.l High Line Park was great to see too.

We took the Greenwich Village tour last July and had a fantastic time with a fabulous tour guide, Cindy. So you can imagine how thrilled we were when our tour guide arrived and who should it be but Cindy! We knew we were in for a great time and we were not disappointed. You can keep the museums, monuments, etc and give us these terrific food and culture tours! I would like to add that I agree with one of the other reviewers (donnalley) that it might be nice to start at 10:30 outside and move inside later especially in high summer. I realize that this may not be possible since the crowds are probably larger later. However, if at all possible I think it would be nice to reverse the order.

This tour is a wonderful way to discover Chelsea Market and the surrounding area. You have access to nearly all of the shops and restaurants in the Market, behind-the-scenes tours of fantastic restaurants in the area and an introduction to the Meat Packing District. You will want to stay and explore the area after your tour!

This was a fabulous tour for many reasons. The food was delicious and our tour guide, Kurt, was phenomenal!!! He was very knowledgeable and hilarious too! We would definitely recommend this tour and will book another when we return to NYC.

Overall... good, but room for improvement.

Our tour guide, Sam, did a great job. He was enthusiastic, personable, and knowledgeable. However, I was expecting more food samples (especially from the higher end restaurants). It also seemed like we spent too much time inside the market, only to rush through the the neighborhood/restaurants. The tour ended very abruptly on top of a building that overlooked the neighborhood. No one seemed to know what the building was or why we were there other than for a bird's eye view. Again, Sam did a great job, but I think the tour was a little overpriced for what we got.
