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!

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.

The tour exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide, Darrell, knew every persons name and enthusiastically talked about the history of the area. We got to try a bunch of amazing food that I wouldn't have known about if we hadn't been on this tour. Although going into the tour I knew would we have a great time, by the end of the tour we were amazed by how much this tour had to offer.

The Chelsea Market/Meat Packing District Food Tour was fantastic! I experienced a variety of interesting and delicious foods. Curt, our amazing guide, was knowledgeable, developed a great rapport with group members, was considerate, and made the tour exciting. It was obvious that he was respected by workers in the various shops where we ate. The skywalk which was included in the tour was wonderful, as was the view and information shared with us there and at the high rise building we visited. At the end I was tired and completely satisfied with my experience. All in all I'd give this tour an A+!

Too expensive, too crowded, bad food quality

Our guide was quite knowledgeable, a show-off but polite individual. On the Sunday we took the tour the Chelsea market was too crowded which made moving around as a group difficult. We were disappointed with the quality of the food. Everything was just packed with calories, nothing was healthy. Besides, on the times we were sitting to try food there was never enough chairs for everybody in our group. I have done already the tour on the West Village and it was much, much better in terms of information about the neighborhood, the food and the quality of the whole experience . Honestly, I do not recommend the Chelsea Market- Meat packing area to any one. You can find all the information the guide provided in any guide of NY. So, go by yourself to the Chelsea Market, the Highland Park, choose your own food and save the tip to the waiter in a good restaurant.

Fantastic! Informative, entertaining and delicious

Cindy is a tour guide extraordinaire. At once interesting, informative and entertaining, she puts her all into the tour and the three+ hours fly by. She made all in our diverse group feel welcome. She freely shares anecdotes about herself and so connects well with her group. And did I say she is hilarious?! We learned so much about Chelsea Mkt. itself and the revitalization of the neighborhood that we came away with an appreciation and understanding of the process. The eight food tastings are illustrative, delicious and very satisfying. This was our first food tour; we will now strive to do them all!
