This was a fun outing for our group -- a girls' weekend. Our tour leader, Curt, was fantastic! He was informed and entertaining. We learned a lot about the market and local food purveyors and restaurants. I would highly recommend this! Thanks.

We toured Chelsea Market with Kurt Upton. He was wonderful. Knowledgeable, funny, funny, funny and shared some great food spots with us. This is my second food tour with you folks and would do it again. Our group of five loved it!

LOVE Foods of NY tours!!!

This is my 6th time taking a Foods of NY tours and I have NEVER been disappointed. Of all the years coming to NY I have never been to Chelsea Market before. It was great to get a history of the area and Diane did an amazing job. Loved all the establishments we stopped and tasted at. Since it was such a cold day, it was also nice to be indoors for most of the tour. This tour and any of the other Foods of NY tours are a MUST do for anyone visiting NYC.

A great afternoon at the Chelsea Markets with Curt
Fri, Feb 7  2:00 PM rtremayne Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Visiting New York (first time for my wife) we wanted to find at least one food related experience that incorporated some of the sites of the city, especially the west side of Manhatten that I had not been to before. Hearing good stories about the meatpacking district narrowed our search to that area and the Chelsea Narket and Meatpacking District tour had many good reviews. We were not disappointed! Met our tour leader Curt at the designated time and spot within the market and the fun started straight away. Curt's theatrical background and love of food were a great mix. Remembered names for our group of 10 within seconds, and handed out water for the 3 hour tour. Apart from sampling products from probably 10 different stores, we heard about the history of the market building and it's biscuit making background, the stories behind the producers and products we sampled, and then had a great walk along the Highline and through the meatpacking district, with visits to an Italian restaurant and views over the district and the Hudson River from the top of a hotel. Highly recommended.

Great way to see the real New York

This was a fabulous time! Our guide Cindy was terrific and provided for a great time. We would never have known about the history of the Chelsea market without this in depth tour. I can't recommend it enough for anyone who lives or is visiting the city! Plenty of great food and fun! The 3 hours went by too fast. Will definitely do another tour on my return to the city!

I stumbled on this website and am so glad that I did. We had Cindy provide us with a delightful 3 hour tour of the Chelsea Market. She was extremely knowledgeable on both the district and New York. The food sampling was outstanding - and gave a great overview of the variety offered within the market. Would recommend his tour and can't wait to come back and check out the other tours offered.

I realize the tour would have been entertaining regardless of which guide we had but I know for a fact that Curt added soooo much to our tour. He was fantastic. The tour was a great event and my family enjoyed it tremndously. I purchased the tour as a Christmas gift for my wife. We would certainly consider doing it again. Thanks.
