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.

Chelsea market tour was so much fun

Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The samplings were great. I loved the meat packing district we learned so much. The high line park was interesting, but very cold in January. otherwise, this was a great tour choice for A cold winter day. So glad we did it. We now plan to do another outdoor one in the summer!

Great day in the Meatpacking/Chelsea Market area

The combination of Chelsea Market and Highline works wonderfully. Our guide, Cindy, was entertaining and knowledgeable detailing the history of Chelsea and the Meatpacking district. We had a great sampling of foods from different establishments that we would not have known about doing the walk by ourselves. The tour is nicely paced.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area & made the tour interesting. The foods offered along the way were tasty and we definitely did not need lunch afterward. We were also given valuable coupons. To use after the tour was over. The booklet they gave us also had great info on some surrounding restaurants too. We are so glad we signed up for this tour. It made our stay in NYC more informative & fun.

We look forward to their other tours when we go back again & to other cities.

Very tasty & interesting look at Chelsea Markets

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Cindy, our guide, made itr a very enjoyable 3 hours. The tastings were great and the stories about each establishment, the market building and meat packing district were very interesting.

We had walked through Chelsea market the day before and mostly missed the quirkiness that the developer has put into the building and of course knew nothing of the history or specific design features from its heyday.

Chelsea Market Tour is a Must Do!!!
Thu, Nov 21, 13   10:00 AM bettydib Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
The Chelsea market & meatpacking district food and culture tour exceeded our expectations. We were treated to multiple food 'snack' stops as well as given a very complete background history info session by our guide as the tour progressed through both the market place and the meatpacking district. if possible to get guide of choice, ask for Curt. He was super knowledgable, enthusiastic, and well known by all the food stop vendors we dropped in on. A must do if you visit NYC, and we intend to try some of their other district tours that Foods of NY Tours offers on our next visit to the Big Apple.. enjoy!!!
