Missed half of it

Daryl led the group. After going through Chelsea Market, on the way to the meatpacking area, my wife and I somehow got separated from the group. Daryl did not do much checking to see if people were in the group. Six months ago, we were on the Greenwich Village tour with Kirk, and also the Central Greenwich/Soho tour with Barrie. Both of them constantly checked to make sure everyone was there. Daryl did not do that. Otherwise, he would have seen we were not there and looked for us. We were not far behind.

I suggest that the places that are visited be numbered in order in the brochure given to us. If that had been done, we could have gone to the next place to join the group. The names and addresses are all listed, but not in order.

The food was great and such an interesting guide who told local history and great information about each vendor. We especially enjoyed the Highline Park and the great weather.

My husband and I thouroughly enjoyed our food tour through the Meat Packing District. It was our first morning in NYC and a great introduction to the city and the food on offer. We have recommended this tour to our friends and would happily take another tour when next in NYC.

a broad education in the history surrounding the changes in the meatpacking district and cultural, social and economic impact on the City. A clearly informative narrative paints a vivid and descriptive view of the transformation of the Chelsea Market into what it is today; tastings and sampling of foods add authentic flavor to the experience.Great fun for young and old.

Kurt, the guide, made the tour!

Our guide, Kurt, was extremely knowledgeable about the district and food. He talked for 3 1/2 hours non-stop and the information was fantastic and very interesting. Add a great sense of humor and it was 3 hours worth every penny! The food is not just a small sample either. We ate cups of soup, big cookies, chocolates, breads, meats, cheeses and were completely stuffed after the tour. Looking forward to doing it again.

possibly the best!!

When researching the available tours on line, I was taken by the comments of previous visitors to the Chelsea Market food tour.

After booking, I did hope that it would live up to my expectation....Well it did.

If you are reading this review and are not sure, then don't!!! Be assured that this tour and all other provided are exceptional!!

This was my second tour that I booked and it was fantastic!! Our tour guide Kurt was not only knowledgable but entertaining!!. The 3 hours just flew by, and I walked away so full from all the delicous tastings.

I have done alot of travelling worldwide and have undertaken quite a number of cooking classes and tours...this would have to be in my estimation, possible the best value and information/enterating food tour I have ever attended!!

DON''T hesitate!! book now!!!

Not as good as the Greenwich Village Tour

We liked the Greenwich Village Tour, and were disappointed in the Meatpacking District as a destination. Rather than see a whole neighborhood and a lot of restaurants, we just saw stores and one building (for the most part). Sorry!
