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.

The Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District tour was a wonderful time. The vendors were very informative and friendly. The products were all delicious and the guide did a great job of sharing all his knowledge. He was very charismatic and informed on the neighborhood and its background.

Fantastic tour and tour guide!

When we arrived we were enthusiastically greeted by our tour guide (Cindy). After a few minutes we realized she was also our tour guide a couple of years ago when we did the Greenwich Village tour! Cindy was very knowledgeable about the places we visited, the foods we tasted and also the history of the area. The meatpacking district has come a long way and Cindy related various anecdotes to keep the group engaged. It's quite difficult to say which foods we enjoyed the most since everything we tasted was excellent...from the Red Velvet Cupcakes from Eleni's to the creamy chocolate milk from Ronnybrook Farms to the incredible pasta with Oxtail meat sauce at Macelleria! A bonus was the walk up on the Highline! My first visit to this wonderful use of an old rail line was awe-inspiring! I would highly recommend this tour and I know we will be back to the Chelsea Market to do quite a bit of shopping!

This was our second time attending one of your food tours, and it did not disappoint. The tour guide was fantastic, and the food was plentiful and delicious. Although we live locally, we have really enjoyed getting to know different neighborhoods around New York. The first tour we took was Greenwich Village. This time we got to experience Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district. The nice thing about this tour is that you can enjoy it even in winter. The majority of the time is spent indoors at Chelsea Market. Suggest that you don't eat much before you go because you will certainly be full when you leave.

So Much Food

We had an amazing time on this tour. Our guide, Diana, was extremely enthusiastic and entertaining. There was a lot of food to try and everything was very well organized. I took a friend that was visiting from another country and she loved every second of it as well. Will be attending more tours.

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!
