Tour guides are informative, fun, engaging and interactive. The establishments were accomodating, appreciative and had wonderful samples. The 3 hours flew by! The groups were small enough to be able to hear the guide and move from place to place methodically. Really enjoyed it, would take another tour in the future.

Great tour and history lesson

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Sam, our guide, gave us a great history lesson while we enjoyed really good food. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in doing a little something different in New York. The best part was ending the tour at the bar on top of Hotel Ganselvoort. We had 360 degree views of the city while drinking $9 beer. It was so worth it! Request Sam if you can... he was a lot of fun!

Great Tour!

This was a great tour! We ate our way through Chelsea Market while learning its history. This tour is good all year round, as about 2/3 of the time is spent inside in Chelsea Market. Our guide was Kurt, who was excellent. This is a good tour of this type for older people or people who have trouble walking, as there were more opportunities to sit than with the Greenwich Village tour.

Fun and Informative

Kurt was our guide. He learned our names right away and knew so much about the Market. Always had the answers to questions and never had to go ask someone else. The food was very good, although a lot of sweets were served. Thank goodness for the Lobster Bisque and the food at the Italian Market... The tour ended on a very timely basis and we had plenty of time to go back in and see more at our leisure. Really would have enjoyed trying a sample from Morimoto's and Mario Batali's Restaraunts. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone (w/o children).

My compliments. Another proof that it comes all down to the tour guide. In our case Bob was just the perfect tour guide providing the perfect mix, of history facts, funny stories and good tastings - all with the right attention to detail. Thanks, Bob!

We had a great time on this tour. Sam, our tour guide, was excellent. He provided so much information about the building, the vendors and the neighborhood. All the food we tried, and we tried a lot, was fantastic. We all can't wait to go back.

Our guide, Sam, was excellent. He was very well informed, well spoken, and provided a lot of laughs along the way. Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed the tour, and are planning to do a different one in the Fall. Hopefully, we can request Sam to be our guide.

We learned a lot on the tour and were given plenty to eat. Sam was an excellent tour guide and we will try one of the other Zerve tours next time we are in NY. Highly recommend.
