This tour will appeal to young and old and adds a new dimension to NYC. The tour director was very interesting and the food was very good. A great way to learn about the different areas of NYC.

This eating/walking tour was one of the most things I've done in the City and I've lived here for 15 years! Didn't realize the Chelsea Food Market existed and now I want to go there for all my food shopping. Very interesting history and story about the place. This tour was very enjoyable.

Totally worth it!

I went on the other food tours and this one was just as good as the other ones. Our tour guide Curt was really knowledgeable and pretty funny too. I would seriously recommend these tours to anyone visiting to NYC. It's also a good way to find out more about the neighbourhoods. The tasting portions were very generous as well. All I have to say is it's worth your buck!

The entire tour was well planned and executed perfectly. Our guide Kurt was terrific! We hope to get him on other tours that we will definitely take next time in NYC. Highly recommend this company.

Our guide Kurt was funny, knowledgeable and gave us a terrific presentation. One review I read before the tour said that not enough food was provided - that was certainly not an issue with our group.

If anything, it was a little too generous, but it was all too good to resist.

The information about the building and the meat packing district was fascinating, and all the stops were great.

I would heartily recommend this tour - did your Greenwich Village tour last year, but the food was better in Chelsea.

Curt was incredible!!!

We were recommended this trip by two sets of friends that have each previously gone on this tour. Not only were we not disappointed, but we were THRILLED with the tour we received.

Our guide, Curt, was funny and engaging! The tidbits of history were never boring or dry. The food was wonderful.

We later visited two shops and restaurants that Curt recommended. He was spot on about their quality.

We have recommended this tour to several people already and wrote a glowing review in the "Things to Do" book that is kept for visitors of the rental condo we stayed in.

Thanks for a memorable day!

Fantastic Guide & Tour!

Bob was our guide and he was upbeat & informative. He shared so much history with us; it was interesting to learn about the businesses at Chelsea Market & the Meatpacking Industry in New York. We really enjoyed the food, the sights & sounds, the other participants in our group, and the hospitality of the food businesses that we visited. If my husband liked the tour, then I know it was good! He is a pretty tough customer!

Great Way to See New York!

This tour was very interesting and engaging! The various facets of Chelsea Market and the history behind its development were all fascinating. There were ample opportunities to sample food and drink from the numerous establishments on the tour. The pasta at Macellaria, the cookie from Eleni's, the chocolate milk from Ronnybrook Dairy -- delicious! The part of the tour outside of Chelsea Market was also wonderful -- all well worth it!
