Sooooooo Much Fun

The tour was awesome. Our tour guide was great and it was the highlight of the weekend. I had never been to Chelsea market and I have already recommended the tour to a friend for her trip in August. I cannot wait to do another one. It was soooooo much fun and the food was great. I am going on line now to order olive oil and cheese from the basket company.

We had a great tour guide - Cindy - who taught us tons about Chelsea and the Meat Packing District. It was cool to see how New York City from 100 years ago is still present today. Plus, the food was great and plentiful!

This was a great NYC tour. The guide was funny and informative. The food tastings were very good. The pace was about right and we never felt rushed. Our guide recommended a visit to the roof top bar at a nearby hotel after the tour. We took his advice and it was the perfect ending of a great afternoon on a beautiful April day in NYC.

Fantastic Tour and Experience

The tour guide was the same person who did a different tour our group took two years ago. We were fortunate to have Kirk as our tour guide then, and he was fantastic this year, as well. The tour was well managed, and Kirk made the details and history of the tour extremely interesting. He remembered each person's name during the tour. The last time I was in NY and took the tour, I came home and re-read "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn." Kirk was a wealth of information, and his enthusiasm was energizing and contagious. I loved it!

Very pleasantly surprised

I'd read previous positive reviews so I decided to see for myself. As with most tours, the guide makes the tour. And in this case, Ryan was no exception. He was upbeat, informative, lively and kept the group moving. All the shops where we stopped offered excellent tastings and a brief background of their speciality. While I truly enjoyed each stop, I would have liked to "sample" a few more stops outside on Chelsea Market. When we hit the streets there was a lot of additional history and sights and few more stops would have added to the enjoyment.

However, this won't stop me from reccomending the tour to others.

Our whole group enjoyed the experience. It was fun to get to sample all kinds of different foods from the Chelsea Market. We also enjoyed the tour guide giving us a history of the area. We had so much fun that we would recommend it to everyone.

Loved the tour - lots more food than expected. Daryl did a terrific job informing us of many details related to the architecture as well as the food establishments. The tour was fun and engaging with lots of great tasting food!

We were a team of co-workers taking the day for some relaxation and fun time together. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We didn't realize most of the tour would take place inside Chelsea Market in that one building. But that was ok, there is a lot of unique things to learn and try. It would be a great tour to book if not sure the weather as only the last 15 minutes or so were outside.

Thanks for a wonderful time!
