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.

See it now

A great insight into an area of the city we had not yet explored. See this booming district now while there's still a hint of what it once was. Cindy was pleasant, professional and a wealth of information about the history of the area and the forces that are shaping it today. Learn a little something and enjoy some good food

I'm a New Yorker excited about showing off my city

There are only superlatives to descirbe our 3 hour tour with Cindy. I was born and raised in NYC and always knew this area as the meat packer's district. I was impressed with the work being done to preserve it as well as the artistic view that the developers have. The food tasting was good but more importantly I enjoyed the descriptions, history and interesting tidbits about this area. I've already recommended it to several of my friends.
