Excellent food tour of Chelsea market...

The food tour of Chelsea Market and the Meat Packing district was a great experience. Our tour guide (Bob) was excellent and provided interesting and relevant information. The food that we tasted was outstanding and although each taster was small in size, by the time you got to 8th tasting you were full!! We would definitely recommend the tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip!!!

Excellent tour guide and samples

Our tour guide, Curt, supplied plenty of laughs along with interesting historical and current information about the market, vendors, and food. The tour was definitely worth doing: we got so much more out of the Chelsea tour and samplings than we would have just visiting the market on our own.

Our tourguide (Curt) was entertaining, had an awesome knowlegde about food and the restaurant scenery. What we liked most was that Curt didn't hold the focus on food only, he expanded it on some local sites. You should definitly do this tour!

The Chelsea Market is AMAZING!! Its full of lots of wonderful shops and restaurants that celebrate food! Our tour guide was super nice and hilarious, he even went the extra mile and learned the names of the entire group of 16. The tour was well worth the money because of all of the historical information we learned and all of the free tastings we had. A few of the other shops that weren't on the tour gave us samples too because they knew our guide. We even stayed and did a $20 wine tasting at the Wine Vault. I strongly recommend this tour!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and we couldn't have asked for a more enthusiastic and entertaining guide! He was wonderful! He made a good tour a great tour! It's a good thing our dinner reservations weren't until 7:30, or we wouldn't have been able to eat; there was so much wonderful food to taste. It's your own fault if you go away feeling hungry. My husband and I have been to Chelsea Market a few times but never knew all the history behind the building. If you are planning a trip to NYC, I would not hesitate to go on the Chelsea Market tour. On our next trip to NYC, we are considering another one of these tours.

Great food and lots of fun

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.

Great fun tour. Guide was fun and very knowledgable Gave more that expected. Knew everyone name from memory. Spoke to everyone by name. The places we visited like him. Amazing energy. It was a learning experience and good food. Would take it again. The guide had more people than usual because another guide got sick. You could not tell that he had 6 extra people. He made us all feel special , everyone said best tour.

Our Tour guide Kurt was truly amazing. He made the tour personal from the beginning. He knew all our names in the first 10 minutes and used them often!! He was knowledgeable and extremely entertaining. I would recommend this tour highly as one of the best things I have done in NYC.
