Different from, but just as great as, Greenwich!

We enjoyed this tour as much as the Greenwich Village tour we took in March 2005. Very different, very fun and informative.

Great tour - lots of fun

My husband and I really enjoyed the Greenwich Village tour. Our guide, Rebecca, shared a lot of interesting facts with us on the area and we really learned a lot and had a lot of fun. The tastings were very good and we really enjoyed all the stops. I would highly recommend the tour for anyone, regardless of age, etc. The restaurant recommendations were wonderful - we went back later that night for dinner at Palma's and it was excellent.

We went on both the Greenwich Village and the Chelsea Markets food tours a couple of days apart, and thoroughly enjoyed both. The guides were informed and entertaining, the food was just right, and the groups were friendly. The tours made a nice break from the usual round of tourist activities. A big bonus was the information on local restaurants -- we revisited two or three in the week after the tours. We would thoroughly recommend either of these tours to anyone with any interest in food!

Interesting-good introduction

I thought the tour was interesting, including the historical perspective of the Market and Meatpacking district. I was expecting to try a bit more food and I thought that there wasn't much food (I wasn't quite full at the end of the tour- and I don't need a lot of food), especially for the cost of the tour. Also, our guide was very strict about not buying while on the tour, which I understand to a certain extent. But, especially if people are still hungry, I think this rule can be a bit more flexible. I also think a wonderful addition to the tour would be a quick tour of the Food Network.

Wonderful tour--well done-interesting-& fun.

Let me start by saying that I love everything about NYC and have come back often--for the last 52 years.

I try to take at least one walking tour each time I visit... I feel it is the best way to really get to know & feel the particular area.

This Chelsea/Meatpacking Tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was great--he was enthusiastic, knowledgable, helpful, and fun.

I have already suggested this tour to my New York friends.

We found all the information about the bulidings and history of the city really interesting. The food tastings were good too. Good idea to do this at the start of your trip so you can go back and eat at some of the restaurants.

great food, great guide, great time

1. Tour guide Cindy was wonderful. In addition to her warm and funny style, you realized that she was a vital part of the neighborhood as people on the street acknowledged and greeted her.

2. The time flew by quickly. It really could have been longer.

3. I'm glad we didn't take take out to "shop" because it's a waste of our time and her expertise.

4. Group size of 16 made it personalized -- any bigger would be hard to manage and feel impersonal.

5. More tastes of more things -- even if a little bitty mouthful.

Informative and good eats!

This was an excellent tour. Two of us went and thoroughly enjoyed the food and information provided by the guide concerning the market history and local neighborhood. We would definitely join a similar tour of another NYC neighborhood.

We booked this tour on a whim and really enjoyed it. We liked all the cultural tidbits our tour guide related with enthusiasm. We were a little disappointed with the amount of food we got to taste. It was all delicious but we thought we would be trying more things than what we got. After the tour was over , we went hunting for a place to eat, which of course was one of the places we tried on the tour. We will definitely try the Chelsea Market tour next.

Enthusiastic, approachable and knowledgeable guide, tasty selection of goodies and useful information to take away all helped make this a thoroughly enjoyable experience - we headed back again next day and plan to stay locally next trip.

Would recommend it to food lovers

I enjoyed the review not only for the tasting and exploration of restaurants but for the history of the region. I found the host well informed, funny, observant( in watching out for us and making sure everyone kept together and had the opportunity of tasting) and did not take himself too seriously.

For suggestions on how to improve:

1) I found the last eating place at a Kebab outlet out of place with the rest of the tour.

2) Perhaps make it shorter to 2 hours.

3) Include a meal - which would raise the cost though

Overall I would recommend it to food lovers.

There were four women in our group and each one of us loved the tour. The guide was funny, very informative, knowledgeable, and loved what he was doing. Anyway, he did a good job making us believe he loved his job. The food was delicious and the variety was interesting. The only drawback was we didn't have enough time in our personal schedule to go back and explore the places we saw on the tour. Allow yourself time to go back and visit some of the shops after the tour is over.

A great combination of food sampling and history of the neigborhood and the surrounding area. I'd reccomend that you take the tour on your first day in the city so that you have as much time as possible to enjoy all the fabulous restaurants.

Great food tour! Pleasant and knowlegeable tour guide. The tastings were all timed just right. The village has never looked so good and now so different! Will definitely do this again.
