It was great. We learned a lot about the old Hi-Line railroad, the Chelsea Market building, and the Meat Packing area. The guide was helpful and very knowledgeable. Tasting the delicious foods from the various market purveyors was a wonderful way to learn about new shops in the market and encouraged us to come back another time to avail ourselves of the bounty that was available. A wonderful wayto spend part of a Saturday!

The Chelsea Market/Meatpacking Tour was absolutely wonderful. Cindy, our guide, was friendly, upbeat, and very knowledgable about the area. If I had not taken this tour, I would never have learned about Chelsea Market and all the treasures it holds. From an amazing bakery filled with fresh-baked bread, to an authentic Italian marketplace, to a fresher-than-fresh fish market, it has something for everyone. The actual food samples we got to taste were generous and delicious.

I would highly recommend this activity to anyone looking for new and not-so-well known places in the city to explore. It was virtually empty. It certainly is a great way to spend 3 hours.

I thought it was a great tour. Cindy was an excellent guide, and the food was abundant and very good. I also went on the Greenwich tour with Rory and it was equally good. The food is even more abundant on that tour! Both tour guides were nice, helpful and knowledgable. I will tell anyone I know that is coming to New York to go on these tours.

I really enjoyed my tour of Chelsea and the Meat packing district. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and fun to listen to. However I would have enjoyed more outside and less in the market. I would have liked to see more of Chelsea and hear more of its history.

Cindy, our guide, was interesting and informative, with a very nice personality. My friend and I were completely unfamiliar with the area prior to the tour; now we feel like we know enough to make enjoyable future trips. We especially enjoyed the history of the Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district. Cindy gave us a real feel for what the area was like in the past and how it is evolving.

This is our second tour, as we took the Greenwich Village tour last fall. We both hope you will add to your tours eventually, perhaps to the Lower East Side? Chinatown? Little Italy?

I have recommended your company's tours to others, as I think your tours are top-notch in every way!

After a wonderful experience getting to know the Greenwich neighborhood on your tour in the Spring of 03, we signed up for the Chelsea tour. We had a great time tasting our way through the market and enjoyed Todd's casual style of sharing the history of the market and the meat packing district. We are already recommending the tour to others and are anxious to get back there ourselves!

Very informative and interesting. Tour guide Todd was fantastic! Will be recommending this tour to family and friends during their visits to NYC. In addition to the food samples, the historical information was something you could not have gotten out of a tour book. We will take this tour again next year so that we can watch this unique area grow.

Our group took the Greenwich Village food tour last year and couldn't wait to come back and do the Chelsea Market tour. It was wonderful, and Todd our guide was superb!! Our ages range from 25-59 and we all loved it. You need to come up with another tour so wecan do it next year!!
