Being in our sixties, we viewed this walking tour with a certain amount of trepidation, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Although we covered a fair amount of ground, the pace was comfortable, and the stories, anecdotes and personal experiences of our guide made it a truly light hearted and memorable day. There were more than ample tastings, plenty of background about the varied samples, but no pressure to buy. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the morning, the samples, the company of the rest of the group, but the services of our very knowledgeable and personable guide was in fact, "the icing on the cake" A big thankyou to you all !!

I received this gift certificate from my daughter and son in law as an anniversary gift. My husband and I had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the different food tastings, and visiting the many different stores in the Chelsea Market. We also had a great time visiting the Meat Packing District as well as the boutique hotel and the two restaurants. Our guide was terrifc and very knowledgeable, and made it a very enjoyable day. We did some shopping after the tour was over and enjoyed coffee and dessert in Amy's Bakery.|

I would definately recommend this tour to my friends.

Curt from Canada was our guide and within minutes had remembered everyone's name - there were about 15 of us on the tour. We visited various and delicious eateries in the Chelsea Market sampling a few things here and there. It was all very interesting and great fun and then he showed us a couple of restaurants in the district and even a bed and breakfast place. I did the Village tour last year and thought I wouldnt find this as much fun, but I was wrong. I can very much recommend this as a fun and different thing to do in New York.

We really enjoyed our tour! Our guide Cindy was very funny, keeping an accurate head count, passing out water, and making sure that we were comfortable. She was very knowledgeable about the area and appeared to really enjoy sharing information about her neighborhood. We plan on returning to the Meatpacking district and are considering taking other tours.

Hands down best tour we've ever taken - anywhere!

We've been to NYC numerous times and taken the standard local tours. This puts those to shame. I Would highly recommend it, particularly for those, like us, who have a general knowledge of New York City, but who wish to "drill down" to find the real NY - and who have a love of great food!

I absolutely loved the tour! Kurt was our tour guide and he was outstanding - informative, entertaining and knowledgeable.

I plan to do another tour on my next visit to my kids in New York.

Thanks to Bob, our tour guide! He was full of local info and was able to answer a multitude of questions. The food tasting was an adventure. We will definitely return to the market area on our next NYC trip.

My wife & I found this tour very entertaining and educational. Although lifelong New Yorkers we were unfamiliar with the Chelsea area and in particular, the Chelsea Market. The tour guide (Bob) was genuinely a nice person and showed a great expertise of the history of the area. The food stops were all excellent and diverse. All and all a great afternoon.

The tour is as good as the guide
Fri, Oct 10, 08   12:30 PM donnafrug Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The food was ok, I was expecting something wonderful from the Italien deli, not just lunch meat. Maybe more sampling of the items that are imported.

The history of the market and the meat packing district was wonderful. Bob was

very knowledgeable, funny and certainly has a passion for his work. We

appreciated him a great deal.

We were a group of ladies on a Culinary Tour to New York........The range of foods and restaurants, along with the cultural highlights of the tour were perfect! It was a nice change from our regular itinerary of cooking classes! A Taste For Travel, LLC, Portland Oregon
