Our Tour guide Kurt was truly amazing. He made the tour personal from the beginning. He knew all our names in the first 10 minutes and used them often!! He was knowledgeable and extremely entertaining. I would recommend this tour highly as one of the best things I have done in NYC.

Our guide was Kurt Upton. He was amazing! He keeps you engaged through the entire tour. He knew the history of the area and had a great relationship with the vendors. He gave us information on almost every business in the area even the ones we did not go in. The food choices were outstanding. We went back to almost all of the vendors and purchased goods most of which offered a 10% discount for people on the tour. Try everything offered to maximize your experience, several people find they liked things they had never tried before.

Daryl met us promtply and efficiently on a cold NYC day inside the Chelsea market. We had dressed for cold outdoor weather so had to shed some layers. The tour went off like clockwor., Daryl was witty, engaging and informative. The food tastings were varied and delicious. We were done promptly at the 3 hour mark after venturing outside for a bit of the High Line and a walk around the Meat Packing district. Highly Recommend.

Great Tour

We really enjoyed our tour of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District. Our tour leader, Bob, was enthusiastic, informative and amusing, which I imagine might not be always easy to achieve, when he's probably done the tour many times before! This was my second tour, and my husbands first, (I did your Greenwich Village tour a couple of years ago with our daughter) and we chose this one as the majority of the tour was inside Chelsea Market. Being December, we were unsure what the weather would be like - a wise decision as it turns out because it was wet and cold.... Next time Chinatown! Many thanks.

Loved every minute of it!

My husband and I loved the tour, both the food and the fascinating information about the location history, food options, businesses selected, and general trivia and background. Our guide, Bob Gelber was knowledgeable about so much, that he was able to add color and interest to the tour and tailor his comments to our interests. We were surprised by the amount of food and quality of food we tasted...next time I probably would not eat breakfast before the tour. We are local (NJ) and learned so much more about this area of Manhattan that we did not know. We'll come back to explore it further another time. We now want to do all of the 5 food tours listed!
