Fun, informative, lots of great food!

I would highly recommend this food tasting/walking tour. We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgable of the area history and people, the shops, restaurants, etc. Had many interesting, fun anecdotes and stories to share. He helped us get to know each other so we were like new friends touring together. Also made suggestions for enjoying the area after the tour and shared restaurant/entertainment ideas and tips. Visited almost 20 places and sampled their specialties. Lots of variety. Definitely all one would want/need for lunch and then some. A great value and terrific way to see the MP and Chelsea district and even a bit of the west village. Pace was very good. Just the right amount of walking. Chance to sit a bit for those with leg/back problems. Everyone from a young mom with kids, singles, a ladies group, mother & daughter, young and elder couples thoroughly enjoyed experiencing this tour together. Something for everyone. Looking forward to doing one of the Village tours on our next NYC trip! I'll be sure to take my husband along next time. He'll love it!

The company was very cooperative in changing the date for us. The guide was truly excellent, the food was plentiful and delicious and the information about the area was most interesting....(even to a New Yorker).

Chelsea Market/meat packing district
Sat, Jun 6, 09   11:00 AM VFreeman1 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
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.

Tour was excellent, guide & eats were great,

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through the Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District. Our guide was very entertaining, and knowledgeable. We had samples to enjoy along the way and enough venues to keep the tour interesting.

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.
