Our tour guide was wonderful! He was continually assessing our needs and was flexible. He was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us loads of information. He was fun, funny and made the tour.

There were very few changes in the past two years, maybe two or three different stops. I believe the guide was Kurt. We enjoyed it.

My daughters and I come to NYC every Oct. and like to try different things. We took the Celebrity tour of Homes last year and throughly enjoyed it. The guide on this tour told us to try the food tour. We loved it and are excited about going on the Greenwich Village tour ASAP. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see and experience parts of NYC they would never find on their own. I give it a rating of excellent!

Although interesting, too much time was devoted to staying within Chelsea Market. The various food tastings, although good, were quite sparse. As adults, the portions could have been sized accordingly.

Also, more time could have been spent walking through some of the Chelsea neighborhoods, as well as being shown museums and other points of interests. Having the remains of loading docks at several meat-packing plants pointed-out was not all that inspiring, including the abandoned lengths of the elevated (Hi-Line) RR, funky bars, and hi-end retail shops.

Our guide appeared very knowledgeable and well-mannerred however, we would have liked to have seen this knowledge put to use over a wider portion of the Chelsea area.

We loved the tour and our tour guide Kirk was great (personality, informative). Can't wait to do the Greenwich Village tour. Hope you'll add additional tours. Others on our group already did the Village and enjoyed it so much they did the Chelsea. I've already recommended it to friends & family.

I would recommend this activity. It gave us a chance to see parts of the city we wouldn't have been able to see on foot. It was informative and a lot of fun to see where different shows and movies have been filmed. I found myself referencing a lot of things learned on the tour throughout my trip. We took the tour early on in our trip and were then able go see some of the places on foot. Highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed it very much. Our guide, Kurt, was very informative and entertaining. We enjoyed the samples of food. Each food vendor had something unique to offer. We would recommend it to anyone who enjoys eating and trying new things.

We were the only locals (from the NY/NJ area) on the tour...the out-of-towners really seemed to enjoy it, as did we. It gave us a new persepective on a NYC neighborhood that we hadn't explored very often. It also gave us great ideas on where to eat next time we're in town. We can't wait to try some of the restaurants we were introduced to! The tastings were all delicious, and it was interesting to go behind-the-scenes at some of the establishments and to learn the history of how the Chelsea Market became what it is today. I would definitely recommend this tour to locals as well as out-of-towners. It's an informative and tasty way to spend a few hours in NYC and the price is definitely right!
