A fun and " food -filled" time in nyc

The tour of Chelsesa Market was certainly a highlight during my trip to New York. Kurt was a fantastic guide which kept our group entertained and a lot more knowledgable about the history of Chelsea Market and the surrounding Meat Packing Disctrict. I attended the tour with a friend who has been living in New York for the last six years and she thoroughly enjoyed herself as well - in fact, she just told me she's telling all her friends about it! This a wonderful way to spend a few hours in the city....ENJOY!

Tour guide was energetic and animated. really enjoyed her work and was knowledgeable beyond the basic tour.

Food samples were great. My wife liked the catfish sandwich at the end of the tour but it was a little exotic for my plain taste buds.

Really liked seeing Del Posto and Morimoto's restaurants. Could you guys set up a sampling tour to some of the Iron Chef's restaurants?

Any way to get a tour of the Kitchen areas above the Chelsea Market? Maybe have one of the Chef's give a talk?

Overall, a great tour and a wonderful way to see Chelsea Market.

Five Stars for the tour and the tour guide.

Let's just say YUM!
The Sushi and Japanese Tapas Food Tasting Event

This exceeded expectations all the way! Food was spectacular paired with beer and sakes chosen by our guide Rahim! We loved the slowed pace of the meal with the informative guide to ensure you have time to taste and savor each item in front of you. I would love to eat all of my meals this way! As on my other tour (Chinatown- also excellent) Rahim is a wealth of information and conveys it in a relaxed, witty manner. He is just fabulous! Thanks again for a great evening!

Had a great time on the tour. Barri, our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, spending plenty of time explaining the history of the area, the merchants and the foods we encountered. (We were a little uncomfortable eating while she didn't get to eat along with us though.) Especially appreciated on the tour was her thoughtful information on the history of this neighborhood; how it has changed and how valuable it is the way it has been kept. So many good bargains to be had! Would've liked a little interaction with the purveyors.

What a fun tour. Our tour guide, Cindy, seemed to know everything about the Village.

The food was wonderful. We could have spent the whole day there if not for the weather. Every visitor to New York should take this tour!

Sephrah Is A Fantastic Tour Guide
Thu, Dec 17, 09   11:30 AM Allison_Beck Male 40-49 Unspecified Couple on a Date
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our food tour. We have been in the West Village several times before and it's one of our favorite parts of the city.

For us, the tour would not have been the same without Sephrah as our guide. Her friendliness, wit, humor, knowledge of the neighborhood and enthusiasm is wonderful. The combination of the places we visited, coupled with Sephrah's input, made this a great time and we left knowing more about this wonderful neighborhood than we could have found out by ourselves.

We have already recommended taking this tour and making sure to inquire if she is the guide to several of our friends.

Thank you for a wonderful time. Kelly & Allison.

Buon Natale and Happy New Year! --K

I had a fantastic time on this tour. As someone from a multicultural city who has experienced lots of different cuisines, I was still delighted by the yummy treats offered during this tour. We learned several things about Greenwich Village and felt more comfortable getting around the neighbourhood after the tour.

There was more than enough food to leave you not wanting lunch. One of the great features was getting a fresh slice of hot pizza from the start. We even sat down for a bit during the middle of the tour to have some rissotto, and the fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies were such as treat.

When we walked through the restaurants and shops, I could tell the other customers were somewhat envious about what we weere eating and learning.

In addition, our tour guide was well-spoken, cheerful, knowledgeable, and as in-love with NYC as we became.

I'd highly recommend the Greenwich Village tour. Dress warmly, wear comfortable shoes, and come with an empty stomach. Cheers!
