What a great saturday afternoon. I got this as a gift for a friend of mine and we loved it. The tastings were generous, our guide was extremely knowledgeable. I recommend this to anyone! We were stuffed! We also learned some information about the area that we did not know before!

So much Fun and Great NY Flavor

This is just such a great tour of one of NY's best district -- the Meat Packing District . The tour has great NY history, Chelsea Market is so much fun for shopping, etc. and to see what Cohen did with this historical Nabisco plant is just fantastic. You get a great mix of indoor/outdoor and our tour guide, Cindy was just fabulous -- filled with a great sense of humor, tons of NY personality and very, very knowledgable. The food portion of the tour of equal if not better value -- from vinegar and salt tastings to biscuits and jams, hams, cheeses, and even full bolognese plate! You won't be disappointed... take the tour. We're native NYers and we loved it, including my two teenage kids!

My daughter and I took the train from CT just for the food tour. It was worth it!!! Curt our guide was entertaining and full of knowledge regarding the area and the wide variety of foods we tasted. Everything we had was delicious. I would recommend this to all....locals as well as tourists. Our last tasting was a fabulous chocolate dessert accompanied by prosecco.. Yum..my daughter didn't want it to end. She was the last to leave the table

Chelsea Market & Highline

Great tour. Met Darrell, our tour leader, and 16 others in the Chelsea Market on a Sunday afternoon. Within five minutes Darrell knew our names and proved to be an enthusiastic and knowledgeable leader. The first eight or so stops were all within a block of the former Nabisco Company. Easy walking. Darrell gave us an historical background of the area and the Nabisco company. We had a little time to shop, maybe 5-8 minutes before we walked over to the Highline. Again Darrell provided us with the history behind this beautiful elevated park. We finished our 3 hr tour with a tasting in the Meat Packing District. The samples were all yummy and plentiful. Great Way to quickly see the Market, Highline and Meat-Packing District.

Our guide Bob did a fantastic job showing us around Chelsea Market and the Meat Packing District. Sprinkling the locations with history and local fare he made the very crowded (at the time) stops enjoyable and keep the group engaged. The food samples were fantastic and spread well throughout the event. Only complaint was the 2nd to last stop with the pasta undercooked and could of used a little larger portion. Overall I recommend this tour to locals and travellers alike.

Kurt was a wonderful guide. He is animated and provided history of the area along with funny anecdotes and made us feel part of the neighborhood. chelsea market eateries provided us with ample samples and everything was delicious. i visited with my adult children and we went back the next day to try some of the other eateries in chelsea market as well as returned for our favorites from the day before. we had a great time and and highly recommend.
