Snacking our way through charming Chelsea Market

This was my second food tour and both times I have had Kurt as our guide. He sets the tone for an informative and wonderfully entertaining snacking tour of New York City neighborhoods from past to present day. Chelsea Market is an amazing place that should not be missed! It was a wet, blustery day so being inside for most of the tour was perfect. From chocolate milk and cupcakes to mini meat pies - every bite was amazing. A walk along the High Line helped the digestion before the final tasting of the day in the Meatpacking District. The history surrounding this pocket of the city and it's transformation into one of today's coolest neighborhoods in New York , makes for a fascinating, tasty and fun day.

It was very crowded. There really was not much food for tasting. We were all hungry after the tour. I was was extremely disappointed and do not recommend this particular tour.

My husband and I treated ourselves to a date without our 2 young children. We both appreciate delicious and unique foods. Our guide, Diana, was highly knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and we had a terrific time! We went home and bought gift certificates for our parents to go to a food tour and we are hoping they ask us to join them!

A little too hectic!

Doing the tour at Chelsea Market on a Sunday was a little too hectic for me. It was interesting to learn the history of the market but with so many people its hard to get around. Our tour guide was great, enthusiastic and kept us engaged. The tastings were mostly sweets and not much time between each. The last tasting was in a restaurant and we were seated at a long table in front of the chefs/grill--it was extremely warm and smoky from the grill. While the pasta was tasty, the environment wasn't. Couldn't wait to get some air. I recommend the Old Greenwich Village Tour instead--loved that one--walking outside and food was very good.

Tour Guide Darrell was superb!. He knew everyone's name and incorporated us in his narratives. He was upbeat, personal, and made me fee like he was an expert on this tour.
