Perfect Way to Spend My Birthday

I spent my 61st birthday on a tour with Darren (guide) and my son, who lives in NYC.

We had great fun. Darren was knowledgeable, considerate, personable and efficient.

I enjoyed learning about the rich history of the area as well as the background of its present day tenants. We very much enjoyed the frequent samples and tastings as well as the special attention they gave my special dietary restrictions. I am looking forward to going on another food tour when I am back in the city again, hopefully this spring.

Keep up the good work!!

The BEST Walking Tour Ever

The Chelsea Mkt / Meatpacking District Food Tasting Tour was awesome! We have been on walking tours in cities all over the world, but this was our first tasting tour. I thought that we would have small samples of different kinds of food but what we got were big tasty helpings. The Chelsea Market also has an amazing history and has even more amazing art installations. We learned so much about the building that we never would have known if we had visited on our own. (Including who some of the upstairs tenants are. I especially love the elevators!)

Our guide was great. She answered any and all questions, she paced the walk well and was able to relate to a range of ages from teenagers to seniors.

In conclusion, I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to all my friends and to anyone who wants an informational as well as delicious New York experience!

Really interesting tour

Chelsea Market tour was really delicious - both in content and samplings. Lots of esoteric information about the area and the building, and the vendors in the building. We ended up patronizing some of them in other areas of the City.

We are a group of four friends from the Jersey Shore who love to explore parts of New York City and enjoy different restaurants and walking tours We took this wonderful tour October 23rd, 2009 at 11.30am. Our guide was Curt who was just great. He was very gracious, informative and funny. We highly recommend this tour and we are thinking of taking another. Thank you very much.

Excellent time - great view of the district / food

We (four of us - two from Roswell, GA (Metro Atlanta) - two from Bluffton, SC really enjoyed the tour. Loved the food, the tour of the area, the history of the district, and we were very happy to have Dianna as our tour guide. Our second time on this tour - we took the first a year or so after it stared; amazing to see the change and evolution since that time in the "meat packing district." Also amazing that the "Cyote Ugly" bar is still there!

Great fun!!! And Delicious!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Curt, went out of his way to learn our names, give us extra highlights of the area, and provide needed 'potty' stops. Getting to taste foods from a variety of food groups, and different eating establishments added to the enjoyment of the tour.

Would highly recommend it to other folk. Infact we did. Informed our local relatives about it and also some other friends in the area.

Next time we are in town, would like to take some of the other tours that your company offers. Thanks for the nice time and good eats.

This was my second Chelsea Market Food Tour - Diane was our tour leader this year and she was terrific - knowledgeable and entertaining.

The tour is well organized and so informative, not to mention delicious! Very fun sampling the offerings from the best vendors.

Our Chelsea Market tour was the third eating and walking tour we have taken of NYC. All three guides have been terrific - knowledgeable, pleasant and fun!! There is always so much interesting history included as well as excellent food. In fact, we ate at Cuba, a restaurant that we visited o our tour last spring!

WE are only sorry that we are running out of neighbourhoods to visit!!
