Informative & Fun

We had a great time on our Tour with Cindy, who was informative and brought a nice balance of fun & humour to the tour. We had no idea of the history of the Chelsea Market & surrounding area, so we gained a lot from the experience. We enjoyed the tastings and went back & purchased items from several of the stores after the Tour and the next day when we returned.

So much Fun and Great NY Flavor

This is just such a great tour of one of NY's best district -- the Meat Packing District . The tour has great NY history, Chelsea Market is so much fun for shopping, etc. and to see what Cohen did with this historical Nabisco plant is just fantastic. You get a great mix of indoor/outdoor and our tour guide, Cindy was just fabulous -- filled with a great sense of humor, tons of NY personality and very, very knowledgable. The food portion of the tour of equal if not better value -- from vinegar and salt tastings to biscuits and jams, hams, cheeses, and even full bolognese plate! You won't be disappointed... take the tour. We're native NYers and we loved it, including my two teenage kids!

Fun tour and excellent food

Our tour guide, Kurt, made the tour! He is funny and knowledgeable. The food on this tour was very good. Compared to other tours, like the Village, this one was more about the food and less cultural, but really fun.

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
