The first of many trips to the Market

The tour provided a taste of history as well as a taste of a number of diverse foods. The building housing the Chelsea Market is is a tour subject unto itself. The food samplings were delicious and varied, but not overwhelming. We will now visit the Market on every future visit to Manhattan.

Wonderful tour guide who educated the group on the building and its history. Introduced the group to wonderful selections of food from the best in New York. The information the tour guide passed on to each of us added to our good eating habits and introduced the group to different teas. It was a tour that did not disappoint me!! Fantastic!!!!

We had another great experience! This was our 3rd group tour and we love them. If you offered more tours, we'd go more often! It's a great way to sample new foods and explore new areas. A great suggestion for a group of people.

We enjoyed the Chelsea Market and all of its history. The tasting of all the wonderful foods is a treat and look forward to going back and shopping there. The outside sites are just okay. I recommend that you do not take the visitors to NYC that are on the tour to a place called Hogs and Heifers. They were rude and vulgar when the food tour entered their establishment.

There were 8 in our group from Texas. We thought our guide was wonderful. I believe his name was Darrell. Each place we visited was very interesting and the food samples were delicious. The people in the shops were very friendly and helpful. We have already told our other friends who were on the trip with us that they should do the food tour next time they are in NYC. We did not take the time to go back to the market after the tour, but I plan to go back there to just shop and eat on another trip to the city. Thanks so much for making this available.

FABULOUS TOUR

We were in New York with another couple -- all foodies. We absolutely loved this tour. Our tour guide, Samson, was interesting, funny, and attentive. Chelsea Market is such an exciting place with so many great shops. And, the Meatpacking area itself, it interesting, too, as it becomes the new "in" neighborhood. We would actually do the tour again; it was that good.

A winner, once again.

This was our second tour wth Kurt and he is fabulous. We enjoyed the meatpacking district/Chelsea Market overview and I think that my husband and I will eventually take all the tours. They are interesting, entertaining, and definitely help you feel as if you are really "getting to know" New York City.
