We took our tour of the Chelsea Market on Sunday July 11th. My daughter and I did the Greenwich Village tour in March and I loved it so much, I got 2 tickets as a Mother's Day gift for my choice of another tour.

The Chelsea Marktet tour was great..lots of good samples, interesting history of the building and the meatpacking district . Diana was a great guide .

Our group consisted of tourists from New Zealand as well as "out of towners" . I think everyone enjoyed it . We are looking forward to taking another tour with our 5 children ( 23-31) and assorted mates/dates !

It is so much fun, interesting and there is plenty of good food !

I have recommended these tours to a number of people and some have already gone.

I will say that the Chelsea Market tour would really be a great weather beater.. it is primarily in the market itself and was great on a 94 degree day in the city.. will be great for a bitter cold winter day as well !

I would recommend this to anyone who has visited the major attractions in NY and wants to do something a bit different. The food in Chelsea Market was fantastic and the history tour of the neighborhood was very interesting.

A MUST-DO when visiting NYC!

There were 6 people in our immediate group, EVERYONE in the group had a great time. Kurt was our tour guide.....not only was he knowledgable of the shops, restaurants & the area but he was enthusiatically funny. A great sense of humor! Chelsea Market was a great place, fresh vegetables, meat, seafood, bakery items, wine, flowers - what else is better in life than to have all that indoors, under one roof? The lobster bisque was to-die-for in the seafood market! The local trivia was informative & the day was beautiful. Wear comfortable shoes & layered clothing, - you'll be indoors & outdoors. What a way to get acquainted with the area, enticing you to come back again to visit any of the places you visit on the tour.

My husband and I heard about the tour through Trip Advisor and were initially a little apprehensive about signing up for an on-line tour. However, we were pleasantly surprised! Our tour of the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking district was informative, fun, relaxed and packed with delicious treats! Our guide was professional, engaging, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor that kept us giggling throughout! Our tour was only supposed to last 3 hours but he went above and beyond his duties and worked over-time for us. I was even more impressed when I asked my husband what the highlight of his trip to New York was. His response, "The Chelsea Market food tour!" Thank you for making this experience such an enjoyable one. Next tour: Greenwich Village!

Chelsea Market Rocks!

We really enjoyed our tour of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking area as we had never been before. Our tour guide, a Canadian who's a comedian with reddish hair....wish I could remember his name... was awesome! He was very informed and funny as well. We loved the extra touches he threw in like the tour of the brownstone and then the penthouse view from a local hotel just off 14th Avenue. I would definitely go back to this area to explore more. Loved it! The only thing that would have made this over the top would have been to have some glimmer inside the food network studios. The behind the scenes things are really interesting and sometimes thrilling for us, the viewer and supporter! Or a surprise visit with Mario Batali or Emeril would really set this apart from the rest and probably make it impossible to get tickets for! After the tour we went back to some of our favorite places, loved the tea house...the berry mix is awesome! We also went back to the lobster market and purchased steamed lobsters for us to dine on back at our rented apartment. It was just a great day and we would definitely seek out more tours like this.

We all had a wonderful time on this tour. Cindy was an amazing guide giving us lots of history and "insider info". We even got to thank the developer of the Chelsea market for doing such a good job with the building!!

The tastings were delicious and varied and we were all stuffed when we left!!!

Can't wait to do another tour (the next time of Greenwich Village)!! I will make sure to ask for Cindy as a guide!!

As a veteren "foodie" I highly recommend this tour!!!

This tour is wonderful! I would rather go on a weekday instead of the weekend because there is a smaller crowd in the market. Darrell was great! Lots of interesting info and history!!
