In our group of four, the oldest was 76 and the youngest 29. We had a wonderful time and the food we tasted was absolutely some of the best we have eaten in NY.

We would recommend this tour to anybody. Our guide was very informative and his sense of humor was the best. His name was Samson and he was originally from California. He helped make this experience even more enjoyable. Carolyn

This tour combined two of my favorite things: eating and learning about the history of NYC. The guide was knowledgeable, energetic, and humorous. I have already recommended this tour to others.

Chelsea Market tour

My mid twenties son, a friend and her 30 something daughter thoroughly enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour. Our guide, Cindy, was delightful, well-informed, and enthusiastic.

The Chelsea Market is an interesting site and a real example of the current business and development scene in NYC. I initially wondered how we could spend 3 hours touring the market but the time flew.

I recommend the tour and would love come back in a year or so to see what changes have occurred.

This is another tour by the company which is excellent value. Having taken the Greenwich Village wine and food tour which was outstanding, this tour whilst not (nor could be in my opinion) the equal it never-the-less gave a great deal of information and exposure to the Chelsea Market and to a limited extent some surrounding areas. The guide was enthausiastic and knowledgeable and engaged with our diverse group in a friendly and easy fashion. I think the initial remark that tips would be appreciated but not necessary at the end of the tour was a bit tacky and really wasn't needed.

Most informative - enjoyed culture and history as much as food - did not appreciate tour guide soliciting tips at beginning of tour - he was certainly woth a tip and I would have done voluntarily - tackey to suggest.

We enjoyed the food tour and learning all the history of the Market and the surrounding area. Having places to sit were really appreciated, since we are older, but there wasn't ever enough seating for the entire group. We felt there should have been more diverse offerings at some of the places we toured. Our tour guide was excellent!

We had no idea of the history of this area of New York. We signed up for the tour because we had enjoyed previously taking the Greenwich Village Tasting Tour 2 years ago.

This was equally as interesting and fun - We think the food tasting may have even been more tasty and we though Greenwich Village was wonderful!

Our guide Bob was interesting, knew lots of information, and had a very enjoyable and pleasant sense of humor. Even though it was a warm day, the tour was not strenuous and the amount of time and walking were just about right.

We would recommend this tour to anyone.

Fascinating tour of the Chelsea market and area

A highlight of our recent trip to New York was a tour of the Chelsea Market . We enjoyed hearing about the changes that had taken place in the meatpacking district in recent years and the creation of the Chelsea Market.

The tour was well planned and carried out. The tastings gave us good variety and our guide was very knowledgeable. He gave a great deal of information in a nice, relaxed way. Food, stores, restaurants, history - he covered it all and yet we never felt rushed. We were able to ask questions and we had confidence in his answers.

Other members of the group proved to be pleasant and easy to get along with, making the whole experience one to remember and recommend.

Thank you for a really enjoyable afternoon.
