They move the tour group in and out of the different venues amongst a lot of traffic with great ease. The distribhution of the goodies always goes smoothly, which is more important than you would think. Nice balance of eating and talking. Guides are fun.

Our guide-Kurt- was excellent.Very humorous and informative. I would suggest that the cookie sample be near the end since it almost filled us up and we were just starting. We would have liked to have visited more restaurants in the area as you do in the Soho tour. We will be back to try your Chinatown tour on our next visit to New York.

Cindy was a fantastic guide. This is an area that we didn't know anything about. Very interesting history and it seems to be the Happening place.

Fantastic Way To Spend The Day

First of all, I think the reason our tour was so successful was because we had THE BEST tour guide. His name was Kurt and he was funny, engaging and a real joy to be around. His knowledge of the area was outstanding and most helpful in relating to what we were seeing, eating and experiencing.

The order in which we tasted food from the different establishments was a little weird (i.e.,we had hugh cookies to begin with, etc.) but other than that Chelsea Market was a very fun and inviting place to tour and the food was excellent. We did go back to Chelsea Market after the tour to purchase our favorites to take home to California.

I would highly recomment this tasting tour. (And don't forget to request Kurt as your tour guide!)

Wonderful way to absorb part of NYC's history

This is the 2nd tour I've taken and it was worth every minute. Not only was the food we tasted really delicious and generous, the guide (Bob) was so extremely knowledgable that I've been enthusiastically telling everyone I talk to about Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District.

When the tour was over, I called my daughter and her friend who had also come down to the City with us and asked them to join us to go back to Chelsea Market for a while. We all had a wonderful time.

Great tour! We had Bob as our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable about the history of Chelsea Market, the current owner and stores and the entire harbor area.

Would definetly take other tours in this area.

Being in our sixties, we viewed this walking tour with a certain amount of trepidation, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Although we covered a fair amount of ground, the pace was comfortable, and the stories, anecdotes and personal experiences of our guide made it a truly light hearted and memorable day. There were more than ample tastings, plenty of background about the varied samples, but no pressure to buy. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the morning, the samples, the company of the rest of the group, but the services of our very knowledgeable and personable guide was in fact, "the icing on the cake" A big thankyou to you all !!

I received this gift certificate from my daughter and son in law as an anniversary gift. My husband and I had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the different food tastings, and visiting the many different stores in the Chelsea Market. We also had a great time visiting the Meat Packing District as well as the boutique hotel and the two restaurants. Our guide was terrifc and very knowledgeable, and made it a very enjoyable day. We did some shopping after the tour was over and enjoyed coffee and dessert in Amy's Bakery.|

I would definately recommend this tour to my friends.

Delicious and good fun

Curt from Canada was our guide and within minutes had remembered everyone's name - there were about 15 of us on the tour. We visited various and delicious eateries in the Chelsea Market sampling a few things here and there. It was all very interesting and great fun and then he showed us a couple of restaurants in the district and even a bed and breakfast place. I did the Village tour last year and thought I wouldnt find this as much fun, but I was wrong. I can very much recommend this as a fun and different thing to do in New York.
