Our group thoroughly enjoyed the tour because our guide was so well informed and enthusiastic, which was contagious. The food samples were delicious and filling and it was soooo interesting learning the history of the market and surrounding outside area. We especially enjoyed the restaurants highlighted on the tour and in the evening went back to one of them. We will definitely take another tour offered.

The historical aspect of the tour was great. Enjoyed learning about the changes in the Chelsea area and the Meatpacking District. The shops in Chelsea Market are delightful. The food tasting was just okay - a lot of carbohydrates.

The Chelsea Market itself is a fascinating place. Our guide, Darrel, was terrific -- interesting, knowledgable and entertaining. Would repeat the tour/ go on another tour in a second.

After taking the Greenwich Village tour several years ago, I took my cousin (who was born and raised in NYC) on the tour as a birthday gift. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour. My cousin was unfamiliar with the meatpacking district and the Chelsea Market and was very impressed with the history and information provided by our guide, Darryl. The food was very diverse, but everything was wonderful. I would highly recommend both tours (both Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking/Chelsea Market).

Enjoyed Kurt's tour

I enjoyed everything. One suggestion is to have the BIG delicious cookie closer to the end of the eating. I suggested to Kurt that we should receive a small plastic bag to put the cookie in if we wish to eat it later.

We, mother, grown daughter and mother's friend, all loved the Meat Packing District food tour. Our guide, Curt with a "C", was the best guide I have ever had in all the many years of traveling. He was smart, informative, and extremely funny. The food was very good, the information was fascinating, and the walking easy. My only recommendation would be that participants don't eat the whole cookie at the start of the tour, just.eat a bite and save the rest for later, otherwise, you will be too full to enjoy the rest of the food. I enthusiastically recommend this tour to anyone (but not small children) who is ready for a great time....I only hope they get Curt (with a "C") for their guide. Thanks.

Darrell gave us a wonderful tour. We would have never been exposed to the Chelsea Market area if we hadn't taken this tour. Good food, informative and entertaining.

Our guide, Kurt, was full of fun, enthusiasm and great information. You could tell that he really enjoyed what he was doing. We tasted a wide variety of good foods, learned a lot about the Chelsea Market & Meatpacking District. and visited some beautiful restaurants. The tour was absolutely FANTASTIC and Kurt was THE BEST!

We went on your Greenwich Village tour last year and thought it was terrific. But this one was even better! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

This is a fabulous tour!

We were initially disappointed that the Greenwich tour was booked. Now, however, we are so glad we took this tour. Chelsea Market is so fascinating. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly. He (unfortunately I can not remember his name) welcomed all questions. The food was very plentiful, diverse and delicious. The history and current activities of this neighborhood are an important facet of NYC. We will definitely book the two other tours if we return to NY. Thank you for providing such a great opportunity!
