Fascinating tour, great guide. I would highly recommend this. The time flew by, the food we tried was delicious and varied (and there was plenty of it), and I learned a lot about an area of New York City that was unfamiliar to me. I was even telling people about this on the plane home, and encouraging them to take this tour the next time they travel to NYC. The map and restaurant listings that were handed out to tour participants were very easy-to-read, and helpful.

The tour was great and very interesting. It gave me a new view on Chelsea and the Meatpacking district. I can't wait to go back and check out the area again. Cindy was fabulous!

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!
