Good food to taste and a little bit of history

My husband & I attended this tour group with other lovely & interesting people from all over the world. We, infact, were celebrating our 32nd Wedding Anniversary and decided to take a Food Tasting Tour. Our tour guide was Curt Upton. Curt was amazing. A walking source of knowledge which comes from his many experiences and his love for food. He is also a very wonderful exuberant loving person. Curt is also well known & liked by the many stores we tasted food from. We loved tasting the many different foods. Delicious! and leaving us wanting more. We were glad to experience Chelsea Market and also walk through the Meatpacking District. We learned a few things on this culture tour, even walking on the High Line. We enjoyed ourselves and will be looking to try the other food tours with Food & NY Tours. Great idea!

Kirt or Kirk (don't remember which it was) was fantastic! It was worth the money just to spend 3 hours with this guy. I can't remember when I have laughed so much or been so entertained.

I must say Curt has more energy and passion for the Chelsea area than anyone can imagine. Excellent food and information. A must do on your trip to NYC. We especially liked seeing and walking on the much talked about Highline. Curt, how do you remember everyone's name during the tour?

My daughter and I took the train from CT just for the food tour. It was worth it!!! Curt our guide was entertaining and full of knowledge regarding the area and the wide variety of foods we tasted. Everything we had was delicious. I would recommend this to all....locals as well as tourists. Our last tasting was a fabulous chocolate dessert accompanied by prosecco.. Yum..my daughter didn't want it to end. She was the last to leave the table

Great Chelsea Overview

Loved this food tour and Curt or Kurt is the best! Very friendly, learned everyone's name, was very informative. Food was delicious and personal tour of a friends home was the tops. You guys do a great job with your tours and of course the tour guide is the most important part that can make or break a good time, as I have been on many.

Fabulous tour with Curt!!

This tour was fantastic and one of the highlights of our stay in NY. I had taken my 18 year old daughter with me who is a "foodie" and we both agree that it was the best part of our trip! Curt was a wonderful guide-I can't say enough good things about him and his knowledge of Chelsea, food and his love of people. If we hadn't taken this tour we would never have gone to this market. We even went back several days in a row to purchase food items to take back as gifts-the 10% discount we were entitled to from the tour really helped. Please pass along our thanks to Curt for a terrific afternoon!

Darryl, our guide was knowledgeable about the area, he was very friendly and approachable, and he was awesome at remembering everyone's name! He made a point to engage each of us when relating the area history. It was a terrific tour, and we will definitely do another tour on our next visit to the city!
