We went on this tour as a double date and it was a blast! The background/history was very interesting, the food was delicious and our tour guide was great! Kurt was enthusiastic, hysterical and very informative! As great as Chelsea Market is, I don't think that the tour would have been as much fun without our witty, amusing tour guide! I would highly recommend the tour to others looking for something different to do, even if you are familiar with the area... If you can arrange to have Kurt as a guide, you are sure to have a great time!!!

Want an out-of-the-ordinary Saturday walk? Take time to visit an interesting area with history close to home. Take the Chelsea Market walking tour. It was great fun!

I'm from New Jersey and have been on many walking tours in New York but this is definitely the best. Lots of good food and a knowledgeable and fun guide. Don't miss it!

I planned the walking tour as part of a team outing for work. The group seemed to really enjoy the historical infomation and insights. There was definitely enough food for lunch, but I would recommend that the guide actually start with more substantive food first, rather than filling us up on sugar and salt. Overall, we enjoyed the variety of the places and sights. Going from the Chelsea market out to the meatpacking area, then a local bed and breakfast, really highlighted the complex neighborhood that is indicative of the area. Our guide was insightful and fun.

fascinating and delicious

Our tour leader, Kurt, could not have been better. He was smart and funny, and really knew his stuff. The market was so interesting and the food samples were delicious.However, most samples were high calorie and carb-laden, and I think that we could have gotten as good a sampling of what the market had to offer with perhaps some healthier food choices. The walking tour of the surrounding neighborhood was fascinating. I learned a lot, even though I am a New York City native. I would highly recommend this tour.

The tour was great. The time flew by as it was filled with history, great food and good sites. Trivia about the area was interesting and it was never boring. I will reccomend anyone to this tour. I can't wait to try the others. Darryl was a great tour guide......

Fantastic Experience with Great Tastings!

Although one of our group members hesitated at the idea of a "Walking Tour", he enthusiastically participated and found the experience very rewarding. We found that there were many places to sit and rest, while enjoying the tastings from the best markets in town. We were all fascinated by the history of the market, and were thoroughly entertained by our tour guide, Curt. We found him to be very knowlegable of the area, and were very happy to see that he was our guide for the Greenwich Village tour later in the week, which was equally as enjoyable. Our group highly recommends this tour to those who want to find out about the history of these areas, enjoy delicious tastings, and discover new restaurants to return to in the future.
