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.

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!

highly recommend the Chelsea Market tour and guide

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.

Chelsea market tour was so much fun

Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The samplings were great. I loved the meat packing district we learned so much. The high line park was interesting, but very cold in January. otherwise, this was a great tour choice for A cold winter day. So glad we did it. We now plan to do another outdoor one in the summer!
