I highly recommend this tour to locals and travelers alike! There is so much history in the neighborhood that I was unaware of! Our guide, Cindy had so much energy and was 100% attentive to the entire group. Her quirkiness added to the fun. Each of the tastings were a good cross section of the food establishments at the Chelsea Market and surrounding neighborhood. A fun 'girls day' outing!

Ok Tim e but wanted more in depth historical

We enjoyed our tour to a degree but, truly wanted more details about the foods we were eating and preparation details. The basic information on the geographical area was helpful but, not as thorough as we anticipated. So too, some of the places we visited were not ready for the group. Finally, we were tired of hearing again and again about the developer of the site and the money he made. When we heard the same information more than ten times we were ready to walk off the tour. Food samples were minimal at best. Value? Overpriced for information shared and quantity of samples.

We chose this tour because it was freezing cold outside and we figured this would mostly be indoors, and it was! Our guide, Curt, was engaging and really fun. The food selection was very good. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

This is my second time for this exact tour (I liked it that much!). Plenty of food, lots of interesting facts and tourist "tid-bits". Our Tour Guide, Curt, is wonderfully enthusiastic and very attentive (with quite a large task trying to keep this diverse group together). I highly recommend this tour, and particularly this Guide.

Kurt was a wonderful guide. He is animated and provided history of the area along with funny anecdotes and made us feel part of the neighborhood. chelsea market eateries provided us with ample samples and everything was delicious. i visited with my adult children and we went back the next day to try some of the other eateries in chelsea market as well as returned for our favorites from the day before. we had a great time and and highly recommend.

We enjoyed the tour very much. Some of the food items were a little week, the ham and roast beef were just OK and Eleni's was a real disappointment but everything else was very good and our tour guide was also very, very good.

Enjoyed the tour. Kirk was our leader and he was very energetic. All of the food was great. Would have like to visit the Lobster place but was told we had too many people in the group. Portions were very large which was very nice. Recommend!

Our tour guide, Kurt, was spectacular! He was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. He engaged the group with his witty banter and friendly demeanor. When he found out it was my daughter's birthday, he arranged for a lovely tiramisu dessert and song for her at one of the restaurants! I would encourage everyone to take this tour to find all the hidden gems of the Chelsea Market and meat-packing district . . . we went back and used our coupons for some wine and cheese!
