Great tour of Chelsea Market and the surrounding area. Kurt, our guide, was really enjoyable and really made the tour fun and interactive. The tastings were generous and we were both full by the end. I've taken many food tours around the country and this one really stand out.

What a great time! Our guide, Curt, was informative, entertaining and engaging. Left to our own devices, my date and I would have had a meal and shopped. But, through Curt and the tour we learned the history of Chelsea Market, the Meat Packing District and The Highland and enjoyed many delicious bites (read: stuffed full of great food!).

I believe Cindy was our guide. She is a wealth of knowledge - not just about the restaurants we toured and tasted, but also about the area, the people, the architecture and the businesses. I really enjoyed the tour. All the samples more than made up a meal. I did return to do some light shopping and snacking later. I will recommend it to friends for sure. Probably the most unique part of the tour was the salt tasting. I never gave it much thought before. I myself would have prefered more chocolate to the salt, but it was still very informative.

Took place on a Saturday and was way too crowded! Frontladed with tastings and then a long stretch of just history.

We loved the Chelsea market tour. It was great in cold weather because it's mostly inside. Learned a lot about the history of the area. Received plenty of great food and were very entertained by our tour guide, Kurt. He was full of info and hilarious! My 21 year old daughter and friends enjoyed the tour as much as the forty somethings in the group! We would highly recommend this tour to all ages!

This was an UNBELIEVABLE tour! Kurt did a phenomenal job. He made it fun and interesting, his humor, his inside tips - how many times did he say "we're going for a quick bite, then a snack, and then we'll get something to eat? The food was fantastic, his humor had me in stiches! We went to the Market about 45 minutes early and looked/shopped before the tour began - so when the tour started, we were happy to go back through the shops and learn more about them. Being from out of town and a first time visitor, the Chelsea Market is a foodie's dream land. We never would have been able to experience all the food and learned all the behind the scenes information about this fascinating place unless we had taken this tour. We left NY with knowledge, fun and seeing things we never would have if we hadn't taken this tour! We will be talking about this for a long time!

This tour far surpassed my expectations. I couldn't believe how much food we tasted on the tour. We didn't even need to buy lunch on the day we took the tour. My group and I were stuffed. I also didn't realize how much history there was pertaining to the Chelsea Market. Our tour guide, Diane, was fun and energetic. She was also very knowledgeable about each vendor in the market and the history of the Chelsea Market. We had a blast! I've been to New York several times and this was one of the more enjoyable things that I've done. I would definitely recommend this tour to people.

Good but could be better

I thought that since this was a tour of Chelsea Meat Packing area there should have been a bit of meat to choose from. Also, it was supposed to be a 3 hour tour & was over 20 minutes early. I enjoyed what we did & where we went but I think it should have been w/in 10 minutes of the 3 hours & I think we could've had a taste of 1 or 2 more items from different places.
