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.

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!

Curt Upton was excellent as a guide. Funny, knowledgeable, inclusive . The tour was time well spent. The market is a place I would go back to and enjoy shopping and dining. Great mix of foods, sweet and savory. Our kids gave this tour as gift to my husband and someday son's in laws . Great way to get to know friends and family.

Our tour guide, Curt, supplied plenty of laughs along with interesting historical and current information about the market, vendors, and food. The tour was definitely worth doing: we got so much more out of the Chelsea tour and samplings than we would have just visiting the market on our own.

I have been on the Zerve food tour in Chicago and I knew I had to do it again. Darryl was wonderful, knew every name within 10 minutes, very energetic, knowledgeable. Loved Chelsea Market - what a history. Wonderful shops, friendly shop owners. Definitely will be on my list for future vacations.

We arrived at this lovely location. the Chelsea Market, where we met our group (there were about 16 of us total). What a surprise to find such a wonderful Market tucked into an old warehouse. Our guide, Curt, greeted us with vigor and enthusiasm. He memorized everyone's names and made everyone feel such a part of the tour, it was wonderful. Curt was the best tour guide I have ever had. He made the tour so much fun. I could tell he loves his job. The information he shared was informative and relevant. The information I received online about the quantity of food was understated, the food we received was fabulous and way more than enough for lunch. I highly recommend this tour. It was a great addition to my first trip to NYC.
