We loved it!

Our Chelsea Market Food Tastings and Tour with Bob was terrific! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and, though we hadn't had any breakfast, felt we could happily wait until dinner to eat again after enjoying all the various tastings. Bob was a wonderful, enthusiastic, caring and informative guide and a nice guy, wanting to see everyone enjoy ourselves. We'd do it again!!! Jan and Gary Helper

Our tour guide, Curt, provided an intertaining tour that included background information, history and food knowledge with a flair and humor. What a delightful young man, he truely made the difference in our tour. The tour itself was an glimpse of wonderful sights, food taste and history. I was not expecting the amount of food we were able to tast and experience. That as certainly a plus! Thank you so much for this experience.

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the tour because our guide was so well informed and enthusiastic, which was contagious. The food samples were delicious and filling and it was soooo interesting learning the history of the market and surrounding outside area. We especially enjoyed the restaurants highlighted on the tour and in the evening went back to one of them. We will definitely take another tour offered.

The historical aspect of the tour was great. Enjoyed learning about the changes in the Chelsea area and the Meatpacking District. The shops in Chelsea Market are delightful. The food tasting was just okay - a lot of carbohydrates.

The Chelsea Market itself is a fascinating place. Our guide, Darrel, was terrific -- interesting, knowledgable and entertaining. Would repeat the tour/ go on another tour in a second.

After taking the Greenwich Village tour several years ago, I took my cousin (who was born and raised in NYC) on the tour as a birthday gift. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour. My cousin was unfamiliar with the meatpacking district and the Chelsea Market and was very impressed with the history and information provided by our guide, Darryl. The food was very diverse, but everything was wonderful. I would highly recommend both tours (both Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking/Chelsea Market).

Enjoyed Kurt's tour

I enjoyed everything. One suggestion is to have the BIG delicious cookie closer to the end of the eating. I suggested to Kurt that we should receive a small plastic bag to put the cookie in if we wish to eat it later.

Highlight of NYC trip

We, mother, grown daughter and mother's friend, all loved the Meat Packing District food tour. Our guide, Curt with a "C", was the best guide I have ever had in all the many years of traveling. He was smart, informative, and extremely funny. The food was very good, the information was fascinating, and the walking easy. My only recommendation would be that participants don't eat the whole cookie at the start of the tour, just.eat a bite and save the rest for later, otherwise, you will be too full to enjoy the rest of the food. I enthusiastically recommend this tour to anyone (but not small children) who is ready for a great time....I only hope they get Curt (with a "C") for their guide. Thanks.

Darrell gave us a wonderful tour. We would have never been exposed to the Chelsea Market area if we hadn't taken this tour. Good food, informative and entertaining.
