Chelsea Market/meat packing district

This tour was lots of fun. Our guide, Kirk, was funny and interesting. I've been to both places before but didn't know most of the info he imparted. The food we sampled was great and by the end I was stuffed and unable to eat any more. Plus I now have a list of new places to eat and drink, places to stay, shop, etc.

I was sad when the tour was over -- it went by fast although it lasted three hours. I would definitely do this again and also want to do the other tours.

We only booked on one food tour because we were worried that if we had to cancel our trip, we would not have backup from Zerve.

We made the trip, and the Chelsea tour was wonderful. We would have booked the rest but they were full.

So, if you know you are definitely coming to NY, book all their tours. You won't regret it. It definitely beats looking at the gazilion Picassos at Moma and the Met.

Our guide Kurt, was charming, did a great job.

This tour will appeal to young and old and adds a new dimension to NYC. The tour director was very interesting and the food was very good. A great way to learn about the different areas of NYC.

Our guide Kurt was funny, knowledgeable and gave us a terrific presentation. One review I read before the tour said that not enough food was provided - that was certainly not an issue with our group.

If anything, it was a little too generous, but it was all too good to resist.

The information about the building and the meat packing district was fascinating, and all the stops were great.

I would heartily recommend this tour - did your Greenwich Village tour last year, but the food was better in Chelsea.

This was an excellent tour and the food was outstanding - our tour guide, Bob was great, extremely knowledgeable about the area and very sensitive to the tour members. Would recommend to my friends - have already done so.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She guided us around with interesting facts about the Chelsea market and the vendors that were there. We got to see two Iron Chef restaurants which was quite a treat and got to taste new foods at the Chelsea Market. A great time was had by my husband and myself.

Our tour guide, Kurt or Curt ??, was the BEST -- very knowledgeable, entertaining and enthusiastic about every tour stop. He had unbelievable capability of remembering each guest's name; this made each person feel part of the tour group.

The food tastings were very good and ample for lunch. I was very satisfied with the quantity of food.

I would recommend this food tasting tour to be included in one's visit agenda. Don't wait to the last minute to make reservations.
