Our guide Cindy did a great job giving us an overview of the market, high line park, and the neighborhood. The food at the market was good and a nice variety. Suitable for all ages. It was all three hours so heed their advice about clothing and footwear. It is crowded so be flexible.

My husband and I took the Chelsea Market tour and had a great time, mostly due to our fantastic guide, Curtis. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining! The food was delicious and plentiful. The only thing that would have made it even nicer, would have been a cocktail on the rooftop patio to end the tour!

Burt (the guide) was top drawer. The tour was witty, insightful, well paced and above all tasty. No need to eat before or after. Walked away perfectly content. I would highly recommend.

This was my 4th tour with your company. I had done Chelsea Market with a gentleman? and Nolita twice with Annie. Marie was the guide for this tour.

We were in the city for a girls trip with cousins, moms and aunts! The tour was a great way to see parts of the village and learn things you would not have learned before as well as eat food you would not have tried! Ted was an awesome guide and was super passionate about historic preservation!

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
