GRAY DAY MADE BRIGHT
Tue, Feb 27, 07   12:00 PM dketchell Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
Eleven ladies and gentlemen, many of us very old friends who have travelled extensively together , met on a rather overcast and chilly winter day to visit the Chelsea Market. One couple had previously been on the tour, but agreed to do it again. Three of us are New Yorkers who simply love to learn as much as we can about the city of our birth. The rest Jerseyites who, although not always willing to admit it, love New York almost as much. To say we were pleased is just not enough. Each little tasting was excellent and soon we were saying we could not eat another crumb. Still there was more to eat and to learn and we just kept going. Now about Kurt, our tour guide. He was fun and funny, kept us totally amused and engaged. He made sure we were always comfortable and genuinely seemed interested in our reaction to the food, the building and all the wonderful little pieces of trivia about the Market in general. He was completely familiar with the area and answered all questions. In short, the Chelsea Market and Kurt turned our gray day into a great one. Thanks. Diane Ketchell P.S. Most of us have taken the Village tour as well. We will be happy to recommend these tours.

fantastic tour especially b/c it was freezing and the majority of it was inside Chelsea Market. I was stuffed an hour into the tour. The guide was funny and personable and added a lot to the experience. We are from Long Island...any time a friend visits me I will definitely take these tours again and again!!!

A Perfect Afternoon Activity

I took this tour with my boyfriend and my parents. We really enjoyed it. The only critique would be that it could have been a tiny bit shorter. Great tastings, great information, and a great guide!

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!
