Don't miss this chance to really get to know the stories behind the area. I have taken both this tour and the Chelsea...highly recommend both and for the price its worth it to do both tours during your visit!

We come to NYC every year for our annual "Cousins Weekend". Each year we try to do/see something different in the city then the traditional "musts" we do. One of my cousins did the Greeenwich/SoHo tour with a group of her friends and really enjoyed it. She suggested we do one. Four of the six of us have never been to the Chelsea Market/MeatPacking area before. We all LOVED this! Not only did you get PLENTY of foods to try...a little bit here and there for 3 hours and we were stuffed! Our tour guide, Darrell, was awesome!! It was great to see and hear the history of the Market and the MeatPacking area. This was well worth it! I just told my boss about it this morning. He and his wife go to NYC every year as well. I am going to NYC in 3 weeks with a friend and have signed up for the Greenwich Tour. I can't wait!!!

This tour was even better than the Greenwich Village tour if that was possible. Our tour guide, Curt, was funny, very knowledgeable and extremely helpful with suggestions for our stay in NYC. I said we had children with us, but our children are really adults, 32,29,26,25 who have not stopped talking about the great time we had.

Also, the fact that you were so understanding of our need to reschedule ( we had a death in the family) is incredible.

I cannot say enough good things about this and I am so looking forward to yet another tour when I return to NYC

Chelsea Market/meat packing district

This tour was lots of fun. Our guide, Kirk, was funny and interesting. I've been to both places before but didn't know most of the info he imparted. The food we sampled was great and by the end I was stuffed and unable to eat any more. Plus I now have a list of new places to eat and drink, places to stay, shop, etc.

I was sad when the tour was over -- it went by fast although it lasted three hours. I would definitely do this again and also want to do the other tours.

Never disappointed!

I have attended 2 other food walking tours and I have never been disappointed. This tour was no exception. We had rainy weather which made walking through the Chelsea Market perfect. Our guide, Curt, was fantabulous. His creative one liners took entertainment to a whole new level. Give this guy a stage. I could have gone another three hours listening to him. The food choices were varied and delicious. I was definitely full afterwards. Can't wait to try another food walking tour in the future. A definite must for any trip to NYC.

Great for Foodies

This is a great tour for foodies. Foods and the Chelsea Market are central to this tour which has less emphasis on the development of the neighborhood than some other tours.

I love love love the food tours! This is our 2nd tour in 2 years. I love hearing the history and sampling all the unique foods is a special experience. After the tour we went back to Eleni's for more cookies, and the kitchen store for some supplies. Our tour guide was informative and fun and really knew her stuff. Keep up the good work, we can't wait to do the SOHO tour in the future!

Can't wait to return to NY for the next tour. The food and our tour guide (Diana) were absolutely delightful. They even made special treats for our vegetarian friend.

Diana led our group on a very riveting tour of the Chelsea Market and environs with enthusiasm and engagement.

I came back to Baltimore and told people some of the stories that were told to us and encouraged several people to go to NY just to take part in such a tour.

We also went back to the Chelsea Market to purchase some of the food items that were featured on the tour. My daughter now wants to live in Chelsea when she grows up.

What a great way to learn about a City! I especially enjoyed learning the history of the area and the building along with tasting the different foods.
