My wife and I really enjoyed our Tour of the Chelsea Market. Besides tasting a lot of excellent food, we also had a fabulous guide, Darryl, who kept us entertained with historical facts, gossip, name-dropping,and juicy stories! I really enjoyed the tour because I felt it gave me an understanding of how the different neighborhoods of New York have evolved and are still evolving. The transformation of the Meat-packing district with its seamy sex opportunities into the Chelsea Market and High Line is an amazing story filled with the names of the rich and famous! Walking through the Market, we tasted so many fine products of high quality. By the end of the tour, the group of strangers had begun to bond and feel comfortable with each other. We highly recommend this tour!

We had a great experience on the Chelsea food tour. We learned a lot about the area and were able to try some delicious tastings. Our tour guide was Darrel and he was really engaging. He made a point to remember everyone's name and get everyone actively participating on the tour. Overall a five star experience.

Eat before you go.

This is a great tour but I did the same tour last year and I had more food to try. I had friends in from Canada and I bragged about the amount of food they would try and we left hungry. I was a bit disappointed this time around. Learn from me...EAT before you go.

Good! But...

After taking a different food tour with this company which we liked very much, our group decided to try this one. We were very happy with our guide who was organized, knowledgable and entertaining. We had never been to the market before and found it very interesting and the choices for the tour were great. Now the downside - the market was SO crowded and noisy and the shops small that we often had trouble staying together and other shoppers were annoyed by our large group taking over a tiny shop or stopping in the hallway. It was difficult to hear the guide and there was information that we missed because he stood in the middle of the group turning in a circle as he spoke. There was also less food on this tour than the Greenwich Village tour.

The tour of Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District was very entertaining. This was our first trip to this area of the city and we will definitely go back. The samples that we had were very tasty, but the best part of the tour was our guide. He gave us all kinds of information, historical details and recommendations for future adventures in the area.

Very tasty & interesting look at Chelsea Markets

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Cindy, our guide, made itr a very enjoyable 3 hours. The tastings were great and the stories about each establishment, the market building and meat packing district were very interesting.

We had walked through Chelsea market the day before and mostly missed the quirkiness that the developer has put into the building and of course knew nothing of the history or specific design features from its heyday.
