Great tour

It was a great tour and I would absolutely book it again. The only negative I can say is that I really did not need to walk thru the restaurants just to see them. At the end of our tour, we walked through about 4-5 restaurants and walked thru a hotel. I could have done without that part. The tour was very informative and enjoyable. Our tour concluded at a hotel a few blocks from Chelsea market. I think it would have been better to end at the market. We were on a time crunch and weren't able to go back to the market to shop at the end of our tour. Will recommend to anyone I hear who is going to NYC.

We really enjoyed our guide,Sam-he was funny and made us all feel comfortable-the food was just so-so with the exception of the lobster bisque-which was fabulous- also we started wiht a cookie -not a good idea-the biscuits were awful-cold and the jam was like from t he supermarket- a hot roll with some fancy butter would be a better option

My two sisters and I really enjoyed this tour. Curt, our tour guide, was the best! My recommendation to everyone is to skip breakfast and be hungry. You will not need lunch. I also agree with another reviewer's comments about starting the tour with a cookie -- I wish that would have come later. But it was a great cookie and all the food was delicious.

I took my parents and aunt and uncle on the Chesea Market food tour. Even though I'm a local, I learned a ton about the market and the neighborhood and enjoyed the food immensely. Plus, we were given much more food than I had anticipated in a "tasting". Our guide was entertaining and made it a fun day. I would absolutely recommend this tour.

BOB WAS A GREAT GUIDE ON THIS TOUR OF CHELSEA MARKET AREA. HIS KNOLEDGE OF THE HISTORY OF THIS AREA WAS EVIDENT AS WE ALL WANTED TO LEARN DETAILS OF THE OLD NABISCO FACTORY AND SURROUNDING AREA. WHILE STROLLING SAMPLING THE MARKETS CULINARY DELIGHTS WE ALL ENGAGED IN GREAT CONVERSATION. WE ALL SURE HAD A GOOD LAUGH PASSING HOGS & HEFFERS THEN TRYING TO SNEEK A PEEK INTO THE BUDA BAR WHERE WE WERE TURNED AWAY BY A VERY RUDE GENTLEMAN. ( OUR U.S. DOLLARS WERE NO GOOD THERE I GUESS THEY ONLY TAKE FRENCH EUROS ) I DON'T WANT TO GIVE ALL THE DETAILS OF THIS TOUR AWAY BUT I AM SURE ANYONE WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME ON THIS ONE . ENJOY AL

We had a great time eating our way through Chelsea market. Our guide was lots of fun and added many tidbits that made our tour relaxed and enjoyable. I cant wait to go back and will do another tour. It was the favorite part of our NYC trip.

My husband and I and another couple experienced the tour. The tour guide, Bob was exceptional, his demeanor and knowledge made the tour not only very informational but quite pleasant. We've taken the knowledge we learned and have had many conversations with whomever will listen. We plan on taking this tour again with our kids! I would highly recommend it!

This was a really great tour. The guide was very knowledgable and personable. The food was good, and we also got good architectural information. I have been recommending it to friends.

The food we tried was great and the history behind everything was really interesting. It helped me know a lot more about the city i grew up near my whole life.
