While born and raised in New York, although I don't live there any longer, I had never visited this area before or really knew about it, other than that it existed. It was a really worthwhile tour with excellant food, a fantastic, very knowledgable tour guide, nice people from New Orleans, Europe and Australia, and educational. I went because of a recommendation from a friend, and will definitely recommend this to others.

I thought we spent too much time at Chelsea Market, but that may be because there are not a lot of restaurants in the area. Curt was wonderful. He's entertaining, friendly, funny and knowledgeable.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour led by Cindi. The group size was just right, and the tastings were quite extensive and varied. We were surprised to have so many "locals" in the group, as well as tourists. We are looking forward to taking other offered tours in the future. Thanks for the memories!

Surprise Tour of NYC

I had read some online reviews of this tour and suggested to my friend that we take the tour. My friend is a vegetarian and when it said "Meatpacking District" she was turned off. We loved this tour and would highly recommend it to others who have an interest in food and unusual finds in markets. This area is new and not totally discovered so was not packed with tourists. We loved all the shops we were taken into for tastings and the tour guide was very down to earth and a true delight. You could tell she loved the area and knew the history behind this district. Since we were from Nevada she gave us a true picture of New York and this area. Would love to go on the tour again because I am sure we missed some things.

Our Chelsea Market Food Tastings and Tour with Bob was terrific! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and, though we hadn't had any breakfast, felt we could happily wait until dinner to eat again after enjoying all the various tastings. Bob was a wonderful, enthusiastic, caring and informative guide and a nice guy, wanting to see everyone enjoy ourselves. We'd do it again!!! Jan and Gary Helper

Our tour guide, Curt, provided an intertaining tour that included background information, history and food knowledge with a flair and humor. What a delightful young man, he truely made the difference in our tour. The tour itself was an glimpse of wonderful sights, food taste and history. I was not expecting the amount of food we were able to tast and experience. That as certainly a plus! Thank you so much for this experience.

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.
