Great afternoon - every detail handled!

If you would like to have a very informative as well as gourmet delight afternoon - take this tour. Our guide was fun, kept the tour moving at a reasonable pace, and made each business we toured very personal with details that indicated someone did some great research. You will walk away wanting to participate in more tours and NYC seemed a little more managable for the novice tourist. We will come back and enjoy other offerings!

The best tour in NYC

Great, Great, Great....I can repeat this word through out this page and it still will not be enough to describe our day. I will recommend this to everyone. I will return for more. Kurt, our guide, is the a master at what he does and I wish him the best...his name in lights! Food tasting is enhanced by all of Kurt's knowledge and comments and humor. This is an education besides a sampling ... a tease to come back for more. I will definitely book another tour and now have a great idea for a gift for family and friends.

Informative, fun, interesting and tasty. Kurt is a GREAT tour guide who is knowledgeable, engaging and quite funny. I found this tour online while looking for something unique to do with the family in this particular neighborhood. We all had a great time and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Plan on taking some friends with me on another tour of Village/SoHo come springtime.

Our guide Kurt? was fabulous - my husband and I are considering the Greenvich Village tour in the Spring. Also, when the high line is complete, be sure to design a tour of that too. Thank you very much!

We loved it !

This tour was absolutely fabulous! My family and I were captivated the entire time by both the history of the area as presented by our guide and the food as prepared by the vendors. Being from New York it is so interesting to learn the stories of the neighborhoods of the city that everyone has heard of, but few really know. As an added note, our guide Kurt was hilarious and entertaining every step of the way...he is one of the funniest people on the planet.

Fun entertaining way to spend a few hours

Guide was excellent. Enthusiastic, knowlegdable and very funny. A good intro to the market and the neighborhood. I always like learning anything new about a building and its history. I was a bit disappointed, however, that there wasn't more of a look "behind the scenes." I am from New York City and have been to Chelsea Market many times since it first opened. I thought the tour would provide an opportunity to go beyond where regular customers go--to go into the bakeries, for example, and learn about the machines used, etc. with demonstrations. With one exception (when we went in the back of the lobster place), I didn't need a tour to show me the shops. Also, I don't think the description included that the tour went outside around the market. Again, I know the area and I've been to the surrounding restaurants and hotel several times before. I would recommend the tour, however, to people from outside the area. Thank you.

this tour. Our tourguide Curt, was very knowledgeable about the area, explaining in a very entertaining way. The food tastings were excellent, my husband and i were very pleased with this tour. We hope to do the tenement tour, and a Greenwich village tour next year. Thank you for a wonderful New York experience.

Kurts energetic personality made this tour a lot of fun! While at the same time it was very interesting & informative..This tour also gives some great restaurant ideas on where to eat in the meatpacking district. I highly reccomend it if you want to try great food, learn a little history of the area & have a few laughs along the way.
