Chelsea/Meatpacking Food Tour is Wonderful!

This is the second Foods of NY tour I've taken. Last year I went with my daughter-in-law on the Greenwich Village tour. We loved it so much, that this year we brought our husbands. Daryl, our tour guide was wonderful. He was well-informed, friendly and funny. Most of the tour is indoors within the Chelsea Market. We only ventured out to go to one tasting in the Meat Packing area and walk on the High Line, another highlight and totally unexpected.

I did feel funny because we are all native New Yorkers, and though we should have been familiar with the area, we weren't. We could have done this tour on our own, however, the experience would not have been the same. We enjoyed the history and the tastings, which we would have missed. I also enjoyed 3 new foods that I never had before and would not have ordered or tasted if we were on our own. The amount of food is ample. My only complaint, but a small one, is that I would have liked to have ended with the cupcake instead of start with it.

I highly recommend this tour, even if you're a native New Yorker!

Our tour guide, Kurt, was fantastic! His knowledge of the area and foods (as well as his humor) made our trip

Had a great time. Kurt was a fantastic guide with lots of enthusiam and lots of knowledge of the area and people in the various restaurants and stores. The history lesson of the area was great. It is much more than the write-up on their web page. Thanks for wonderful time.

Could have done this one on our own

We didn't learn a lot on this tour that wasn't already obvious, except for the HighLine and Meat Packing District. That part of the tour was really informational, but the least part of the tour. Your other tours have been exceptional, so this one disappointed.

We loved the tour of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. Our only complaint was the heat wave that just happened to occur while we were in New York. I think the heat index was 110 degrees that day. The part of the tour indoors was great but outside, and especially the last stop with the seating arrangements next to the kitchen, had us all melting. This was not a fault of the tour--just the weather. We loved Kurt (sp?); he was very funny and knowledgeable. We all agreed we would do this again. Thanks for a wonderful time.

On a recent trip to NYC, my girlfriend and I had the pleasure of taking the Chelsea/meatpacking tour. Our tour guide, Bob, was great--so knowledgeable, patient and full of fun. It was our first trip to Chelsea market, so we thoroughly enjoyed what it had to offer. The samplings were more than adequate; in fact we liked it all so much we went back the next day.

We would definitely recommend this tour and Bob as a tour guide. We hope to do the Greenwich Village tour next trip. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
