One of the highlights of our trip to NYC

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend this company. The tour guide was charming and funny and seemed to truly enjoy introducing people to new foods and places. We were surprised at the number of tastings as well as the size of the tastings. To say you will not need to eat lunch afterwards is an understatement - we were absolutely stuffed! We had a great time!

The tour leader, Bob, was knowledgeable, interesting and delightful. Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District was fascinating with the tastings, history and walking tour. We highly recommend this to anyone. We are looking forward to booking another tour.

Missed half of it

Daryl led the group. After going through Chelsea Market, on the way to the meatpacking area, my wife and I somehow got separated from the group. Daryl did not do much checking to see if people were in the group. Six months ago, we were on the Greenwich Village tour with Kirk, and also the Central Greenwich/Soho tour with Barrie. Both of them constantly checked to make sure everyone was there. Daryl did not do that. Otherwise, he would have seen we were not there and looked for us. We were not far behind.

I suggest that the places that are visited be numbered in order in the brochure given to us. If that had been done, we could have gone to the next place to join the group. The names and addresses are all listed, but not in order.

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!!!

Thanks!

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.
