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.

I have to say that it was one of the best parts of our trip to New York!! The tour was very informative, fun and was a great way to see a special part of New York. I would definitely recommend it to anyone going to New York and actually already have. If we do make it back to New York again the Grenwich Village tour will definitely be on our list.

Our guide Todd was great!

i know a lot about the recent history of Chelsea market and meat packing area that was great to learn. I heard not very much about the different types of food or about the shops themselves.

Nice tour guide who made sure we were all involved but not a tour I would recommend over other walking tours of New York

The Food Tasting Tour was fun and informative. Curt, our guide, made the tour even more fun with his wit and humor. I would highly recommend this tour if you are anywhere near the Meatpacking district.

Took this tour with my two adult (22, 26) children. Although I was born and raised in NYC, so much has changed that when I visit I feel like a tourist. This tour was an "insider guide" to the Chelsea Market, it's history and great eats. The tastings were delicious and having time to explore the shops was good as well. Learning about the history of the Meat Packing area and how it is being developed, also very informative. Daryl, our guide, was entertaining, engaging and really knowledgeable. My kids loved the tour as well. I can't wait to do another. Thanks!

The Tour was Good /Interesting - The Guide ,Curt was GREAT!!!. He made the whole thing worthwhile - He made it fun even with the crowds inside the market. Everyone in my party of 8 agrees with this statement. If anyone asks me I would tell them to ask for Curt before taking the tour.
