Fun, Food & Extrordinary Sights in the Chelsea Mkt

The Chelsea Market Food Tour in the old Meatpacking District was a wonderful adventure. Our guide, the hilarious and energetic Kurt, kept us laughing and well fed the entire 3 hrs. My girlfriend & I have taken a number of your other NYC tours, and this was the most fun! We received a lot of history of the area from Kurt, the mission of the developers, and a real feel for the flavors and tastes from 10+ shops/vendors. There was a great variety in the tastings, from moist & delicious red velvet cupcakes at Eleni's Bakery, to the creamy & flavorful Lobster Bisque at the Losbster Shop. We found out the Food Network films it's shows on the upper floors and even the Oxygen Network from Oprah is there. We saw shops in the surrounding neighborhood as well as walking the Hi-Line, the old elevated train line that is now a walking park. It was a unique experience in an up and coming area of the city...NOT TO BE MISSED!

Great day in NYC

My husband and I enjoyed the tour of the meatpacking district. We sampled foods from several places and enjoyed them all. It's worth the tour just to find out the best places to eat. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The only problem was that it was a little bit too long.

A Day of Food, Fun and History
Sun, Sep 4, 11   11:00 AM 274847-Helenviolet Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This is my second time taking this tour. I liked it so much, I wanted to bring my friends to enjoy it with me. Diana was our tour guide, and I cannot say enough great things about her. She was so knowledgable of the area, and shared that knowledge tremendous enthusiasm. The history of the Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking district is so unique and I felt so comfortable in the area that I can come back by myself anytime. The variety of food and the nice people on our tour helped us to enjoy the day! Thank you for organizing such a fun day.

Grate time - tasty, educational, and entertaining
Sat, Sep 3, 11   10:30 AM 611689-Ramjet Male 60-69 Local Group of Friends
Our guide Kurt was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. The food we sampled was great, the Chelsea Market is a great venue, and everyone we met very pleasant. We had great weather, but even in worse weather it would be time well spent. The sounding meat market area was also interesting to tour and learn about as an up and coming revival area.

This is our second food and culture tour and will not be the last.

Just a Wonderful New York Experience!
Fri, Aug 26, 11   11:00 AM 593506-vrazzore Male 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
This tour went well beyond expectations. Not only was the sampling at the various shops in the Chelsea Market a delightful and nourishing experience but the walk through the market was also like walking through an Art museum, with sculptures everyway one looked or even sat! The safe deposit boxes outlining the elevator doors were magnificent. And the tour guide's explanation of the history of the market made this New Yorker wonder how much more about the City I really want to learn. Travelling from cupcakes to chocolate milk to lobster bisque soup to Italian olives/cheeses/mortedella sandwiches simply made me want to return for more.

All this followed by a beautiful walk on the hi-line, a visit to a couple of famous restaurants and culminating in an Italian oxtail pasta meal in the Meat Packing District impressed upon me how much I have missed in Lower Manhattan. I will be back for more real soon! Anyone coming into the City should have this tour at the top of their "must do" list.

Good Eats!

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour through Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District. All the food was fantastic and our tour guide, Diana, was so organized and knowledgeable. If we had done the tour at the beginning of our week, we would have gone back to eat at all the places again. Will keep them on our list for next year. Also will look into your other food tours for next trip.

Delightful, delicious introduction to Chelsea Mkt
Thu, Aug 18, 11   11:30 AM 603200-mummum Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had no idea how wonderfully informing and entertaining this tour would be! We thought it would be something a little different to include in our granddaughter's first visit to New York. We made an excellent choice. Our guide, Bari, was knowledgable and very pleasant. She was considerate of everyone's needs and her infectious enthusiasm for the area was a bonus. We have already raved about our experience and look forward to future trips to New York, which will definitely include some of your other offerings. Keep up the good work!
