Chelsea Market tour Mar 2014

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!

We are so glad we did this tour. Lots of fun with Darrell and almost more food than we could eat. Definitely a fair price for the time and goodies.

This was a fun outing for our group -- a girls' weekend. Our tour leader, Curt, was fantastic! He was informed and entertaining. We learned a lot about the market and local food purveyors and restaurants. I would highly recommend this! Thanks.

We toured Chelsea Market with Kurt Upton. He was wonderful. Knowledgeable, funny, funny, funny and shared some great food spots with us. This is my second food tour with you folks and would do it again. Our group of five loved it!

LOVE Foods of NY tours!!!
Sun, Feb 16  2:00 PM dmanso Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This is my 6th time taking a Foods of NY tours and I have NEVER been disappointed. Of all the years coming to NY I have never been to Chelsea Market before. It was great to get a history of the area and Diane did an amazing job. Loved all the establishments we stopped and tasted at. Since it was such a cold day, it was also nice to be indoors for most of the tour. This tour and any of the other Foods of NY tours are a MUST do for anyone visiting NYC.
