What a Winner!

Off we went early one Saturday morning, a group of women friends, to explore an interesting section of New York. Our train ride was filled with questions of what we would see and eat! Many did not have breakfast and wanted to get started on our adventure as soon as possible. After a quick taxi ride, we were amazed at the Chelsea Market and all the beautiful food items inside. We quickly met Bob our tour guide who told us not to eat before the tour! After an explanation of the history and current situation at the Chelsea Market, we had a chance to ask questions as we began to explore. It seemed we were constantly being offered delicious food options from cookies to delicious soups, as we strolled through the market marveling at the sights. As the tour continued many of us said we could not eat another thing, to being offered nice cold gelato. Who could say no? The trip up to the High Line was an opportunity to see the street life below. To end at a wonderful restaurant to enjoy homemade pasta with oxtail ragu was a terrific ending to a wonderful day. My friends made me feel like a hero, they want to know when we can come back. Thank you for offering such a terrific experience.

This tour was better than expected. Not only do you get a good tour and history of Chelsea Mkt., but we also enjoyed seeing the Meatpacking District and even the new Highline "park" area. The food was all very good and there was a lot of it. In fact we were almost too full! There were some locals on our tour and they all thought it was great too. Went back to the Mkt to shop and also to one of the other restaurants for dinner later. Highly recommend it!

What a great afternoon we had with Darrell on Saturday, Sept 12. From the first encounter with the tour leader to the last stop at the top of the hotel, we had such a fun and interesting and informative time. We may not come back together, but as individuals, I'm sure we will be there again with our friends and/or other family members. Thanks for the memories.

I moved out of Manhattan 20 years ago and this was a great way to see all the changes that have come to the meatpacking district. The guide knew all about the area, both old and new. The food was fantastic.

One of the most informative guides and tours that we have been on. I would not miss learning about the history of this area of NYC and this was the best way to do it. We would like to bring our 3 grandchildren on a tour designed for children around 10 years and hope that you have one as good as this one was.

Great experience. Our Group Leader, Kent, made it fun and entertaining. The food was delicious and the history of the Chelsea Market fascinating. After the tour, we went back and bought items to take home.

This tour was excellent.

There were five of us from 35-65. Two of us took the tour before. We got the same tour guide person named Kurk. He made the tour. He is funny, and remembered all of our names. We can't say enough about the amount of food, the quality of food, and the tour guide. We all said, that Kurk made the tour. I hope I am spelling his name correctly. We were not disappointed the second time around. They actually added another course at the end, a pasta course. Kurk or Kirt went above and beyond to make our tour special. We all agreed he made the tour.

This tour was very well organized and presented. The stops were very well chosen in terms of variety. The foods we sampled were varied and most delicious! The guide was knowledgable, friendly, and most welcoming. I would highly recommend this tour for both locals and out of towners. All of our group was most satisfied!
