Curt gave an informative tour of the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District and with a great bit of humor. All that and great tastings! This tour was a wonderful way to learn the history of the neighborhoods as well as the buildings. We could have wandered around the Chelsea Market and had fun but never would have a clue about how it all happened.

We returned to some of the recommended restaurants for dinner and were not disappointed! Much better to see the place, learn about it and return to dine. If you are a foodie I highly recommend the tour. You won't be disappointed! PS--Don't eat before.

My wife and I totally enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour. Not only did we experience many new and exciting shops, but we sampled some of the best food in town. The lobster bisque was the best we had ever had and the salt sampling was unique. We also experienced a double baked chocolate croissant that was fantastic!!!!! The food sampling alone was worth the fee.

The best part of the tour, however, was our tour guide Cindy!!!!! This wonderful, vivacious and personable lady made the whole experience FUN!!!! She filled us with soooo much history about the market and the surrounding area that the three hours went by too quickly. Instead of being tired after our long walk we were energized by the experience and my wife and I continued to comment on the tour as we walked back to our hotel.

If you haven't figured it out, this was a unique and phenomenal experience that we both loved. The next time we are in the City we plan to try and hookup with Cindy again and do the Greenwich Village tour. Who needs books, CDs or TVs when you can have Cindy????!!!!!

The tour guide had a delightful personality that kept the entire group engaged in the tour. She was able to share a great amount of information with the group in an interesting way. She was open to all questions from the group. I would highly recomend the tour to other individuals.

Kurt, our guide was very informative, has a great personality, very friendly. The food was delish and there was enough for all. We did not go away hungry. I would definitely recommend this tour. The Greenich Village tour, which we took last spring is also recommeded.

Great tour, great guide, great food!! It was a birthday present to my daughter and loved it as much as I did. I had done the Greenwich Village tour before and thought it couldn't be topped but alas it was as great as the first!! Kurt was our very knowledgeable and fun guide! I recommend it to all. wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for a memorable day in the "big apple"!

Probably the best 3 hours I spent in NYC

Last year we took the Greenwich Village tour and it was so great we stayed in the Village this year. After such a great experience we wanted to do another tour this year. I had been to Chelsea Market before but never knew all the history of the building or had eaten much of the food. Staying in a hotel you don't buy that much food.

We had a great selection of wonderful food and learned how long these family business had survived there. What an uninviting area it use to be and how now it is the new 'in' place to go . We saw where those who want to be seen shop and eat l amid the old meatpacking buildings adorned with graffitti .

Our guide Kirk was full of stories and anecdotes and a real asset to the tour.

I asked him if they were going to add any more tours because if they did, we would take them. What about the other end of town?

It was a very good value for the price and you really saw the area in depth. We even visited a B&B which we may stay at next year.

My suggestion is not to even think about it - JUST DO IT! (Either tour)

The tour was a great success. It was very interesting and informative to learn

about the history, the current status, and future plans for Chelsea Market and the

Meatpacking District . The food samples were delectable. Our guide, Wendy, was splendid. Her knowledge and enthusiasm insured a first-rate experience.
