a broad education in the history surrounding the changes in the meatpacking district and cultural, social and economic impact on the City. A clearly informative narrative paints a vivid and descriptive view of the transformation of the Chelsea Market into what it is today; tastings and sampling of foods add authentic flavor to the experience.Great fun for young and old.

Our whole group enjoyed the experience. It was fun to get to sample all kinds of different foods from the Chelsea Market. We also enjoyed the tour guide giving us a history of the area. We had so much fun that we would recommend it to everyone.

There were 3 of us who travelled from about 65 miles north of NYC. It was our 2nd Foods tour and we enjoyed it very much. In fact, I was back in NYC 4 days later and brought another friend to Chelsea Markets to eat.

The Food Tour of Chelsea Market was wonderful.....made even better by our tour guide Curt!!!!

Curt was most knowledgeable of food, the history of everything, and our names. My friend and I returned to the market two days later to shop and Curt was there and hw remembered our names!!! He is truly an exceptional employee.......give him a raise!!!

The chosen places for our visit were the best. The food was delicious!!!

Cannot believe that I have been to NYC and not been to the Meatpacking district.....but will now on every visit!!!

This was the first tour of its kind that we particpated in and found it very enjoyable - more so because of our entertaining guide Cindy. She kept our attention, provided great information and gave us time to absorb and interact, while moving us along all the time. I was very keen to see and walk on the High Line - and the tour offered that and much more. Just being in Chelsea Market and understanding the history of the building was so very interesting.

5 ***** (stars) out of a max of 5.

My husband and I were very pleased with this fun tour of Chelsea Market. Our guide, Kurt, was just great. He was funny and accomodating and knew the territory. We would recommend this tour to our family and friends in the future. We could have stayed longer...and we liked the samples of food that were included...maybe more cheese and less chocolate milk would have been preferred for those of us in our 60's...how about a taste of wine??

We all had a great informative, tour led by Bob. We learned alot, didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. It was more than expected. We also had a wonderful group of people and by the end of the last meal we felt we were with family.

A great time was had by us.

Must do!

For anyone who loves food and learning about an area, this is a tour you must do. Not only was it informativie about the foods and business owners, but also about the history of the area. In an era of big box and discount stores, it is terrific to see small businesses flourish. Hats off to them and to the developer(s) who had the vision.
