We had a great time - Todd, our guide, was very knowledgeable and compassionate about the Meat Packing District.

I would have spent a little more time outside of Chelsea Market though, walking around the district.

Food was good but nothing to rave about...

We will come back to the area for the shops at Chelsea market and to support the new restaurants...

The guide was great. Really seemed to know the location well. Tour was very informative and the places visited on the tour were great as well. I feel I know the area better because of this tour. Hoping to return a few years to see what changes are done.

This was my second time on the same tour, but the first for my two friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Both my friends are still talking about it and plan to take the Greenwich tour next time. The guide was great, informative and patient, full of interesting facts. Great job and well worth the fee.

I would highly recommend it. I would think that the business' in the area would want you to continue. Even though they gave "samples" of food products, we later returned and bought many items from thoe same vendors. Quality of the food items were excellent.

It was informative, probably knowing a little more history of the area would be good. Todd our tour guide was excellent.

You might suggest to the owner of the Chelsea market that they should take some space and have a pictorial museum. How the neighbor hood has changed. what ethic groups were from that area. Getting to visit the B&B was a real treat!!!!

Question of my own: We have done a food tour of Greenwich village area, do you have plans for doing a tour of any other area? Thank you.........

I thoroughly enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour, and have highly recommended it to people in Hawaii who will be visiting NYC soon for business and graduation. Todd was a great tour guide and provided us with much historical and current development information on the Meat Packing district. I look forward to returning in 2006 for my son's graduation, and anticipate a huge transformation. I took my son to the market the next day, to buy nigiri sushi and fish for sashimi; what a treat for a student away from home in the Islands.

We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal while we enjoyed delicious foods from the market. Todd, our tour guide, was knowledgable and genuinely enjoyed giving the tour. This made the experience that much more exciting. It was fantastic and we have already recommended this tour to family and friends.
