Our guide Kurt was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the area and about food. He was enthusiastic and funny. He made the trip. I think we stayed in one place, the chelsea Market a little too long. It would have been nice to sample restaurants outside the market also. It would have been nice to sample some of the wine in the wine store. I felt the trip lasted the right length but there was too much of it in the Chelsea Market itself although it was interesting what they have done with the building. Since they do so much tv there, it would have been nice to have at least a view of the Food Channel. On the whole it gave a great overview of the area. I still think the best part of the whole trip was Kurt.

Having done the Greenwich tour last Spring and enjoyed it, we decided to try the Chelsea tour. We were not disappointed! In addition to seeing an area of NYC from a native's view, the food is great and we again took away restaurant recommendations that we will use in coming visits. Can't say enough about Curt. He was an outstanding guide: funny, informative, concerned. The perfect "host" and group leader. Our only regret is that there are only two tours and now we've done them both. Add some new venues: we'll be there next Spring!

We enjoyed the guided tour of the Chelsea food market. The guide was very interesting and well informed. The food was delicious and plentiful. We had a great time. It is a mostly indoor tour so it is good for the cold weather we were having at the time.

Curt gave an informative tour of the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District and with a great bit of humor. All that and great tastings! This tour was a wonderful way to learn the history of the neighborhoods as well as the buildings. We could have wandered around the Chelsea Market and had fun but never would have a clue about how it all happened. We returned to some of the recommended restaurants for dinner and were not disappointed! Much better to see the place, learn about it and return to dine. If you are a foodie I highly recommend the tour. You won't be disappointed! PS--Don't eat before.

FANTASTIC

My wife and I totally enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour. Not only did we experience many new and exciting shops, but we sampled some of the best food in town. The lobster bisque was the best we had ever had and the salt sampling was unique. We also experienced a double baked chocolate croissant that was fantastic!!!!! The food sampling alone was worth the fee. The best part of the tour, however, was our tour guide Cindy!!!!! This wonderful, vivacious and personable lady made the whole experience FUN!!!! She filled us with soooo much history about the market and the surrounding area that the three hours went by too quickly. Instead of being tired after our long walk we were energized by the experience and my wife and I continued to comment on the tour as we walked back to our hotel. If you haven't figured it out, this was a unique and phenomenal experience that we both loved. The next time we are in the City we plan to try and hookup with Cindy again and do the Greenwich Village tour. Who needs books, CDs or TVs when you can have Cindy????!!!!!

The tour guide had a delightful personality that kept the entire group engaged in the tour. She was able to share a great amount of information with the group in an interesting way. She was open to all questions from the group. I would highly recomend the tour to other individuals.
