Best Tour Guide Ever - SIX stars!
Mon, Apr 14  2:30 PM missyby Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Kurt was the best tour guide we have ever had. We have always enjoyed these food tours but Kurt made this 6 stars instead of 5. His energy and enthusiasm about all of the great places we were going made it an unforgettable experience. The food was delicious and we felt like we really got to know our way around the Meatpacking District. We would recommend this tour to locals and tourists alike!

Wonderful Experience

I took my adult daughter and 16 year old granddaughter on this tour and we had a wonderful time. I have done the tour before and would happily do it every week if I could. We spanned three generations and each of us loved every minute of it. If a person is both a foodie and interested in local New York City neighborhood culture, this is one of the best tours in the city. I highly recommend it.

Yummy, informative way to take in Chelsea Market

Our tour guide Darrell was hilarious! He shared lots of stories about the area, things you can't get just by reading a book. The samples were delicious, a wide range of treats and definitely worth the ticket price. A fun way to spend the afternoon!

Good! But...

After taking a different food tour with this company which we liked very much, our group decided to try this one. We were very happy with our guide who was organized, knowledgable and entertaining. We had never been to the market before and found it very interesting and the choices for the tour were great. Now the downside - the market was SO crowded and noisy and the shops small that we often had trouble staying together and other shoppers were annoyed by our large group taking over a tiny shop or stopping in the hallway. It was difficult to hear the guide and there was information that we missed because he stood in the middle of the group turning in a circle as he spoke. There was also less food on this tour than the Greenwich Village tour.

Kirk was awesome. He kept our attention for the entire tour and made the 3 hours a very enjoyable experience. He talked about the history of the area as well as he knew everyone at the places we stopped and demanded the upmost respect for his tour from the staff. Great tour. Great guide!!! Would recommend highly and would do again!!!

We had a fantastic time with Cindy. I enjoyed our Chelsea Market/Meatpacking tour with 3 co-workers, and 8 other friends who came as a group. Food was great, tour was informative but not boring, I highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed our three-hour tour of the Chelsea Market and surrounding area. It has an amazing history, plus the tastings are wonderful. And if you have not seen the High Line trail...you should!

The tour of Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District was very entertaining. This was our first trip to this area of the city and we will definitely go back. The samples that we had were very tasty, but the best part of the tour was our guide. He gave us all kinds of information, historical details and recommendations for future adventures in the area.
