Our tour guide, Cindy, was engaging and knowledgeable. We were given the flavor of NY in more ways than one.

Can't leave NYC without visiting Chelsea Market !!

I have been on one of your other community food tasting tours before. This was the first for my group of friends, as well as their first trip to the Big Apple!! This was also my first visit to Chelsea -- although I have visited NYC six other times. We are all from Honolulu, Hawaii... I must say that during our week stay, this was the best event we experienced -- in flavors, sights, and aromas!!! We enjoyed this experience so much, we returned a couple of days later to do more shopping and eating -- as well as revisiting this quaint historical marketplace. We are so grateful and fortunate that we had an awesome tour guide (BOB!!!); he was so informative, personable, and rich in knowledge and experience --- he was very entertaining, fun, and generous!!! The Meatpacking District, along with the Highline Route to it added to this tour!!! This area is also rich in history and facts about the people in this community and their desire to preserve the culture!! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!!

Father's Day present - adult kids and parents. It was a terrific way to spend time together. Curt was a fabulous tour guide - informative, dramatic, entertaining, fast paced but not rushing us.

Our host, Kirk (Curt?) was amazing. Knowledgeable, personable and fun. Wished I'd have done it sooner. We'll try another tour next time we're in the city.

Great historical information about an area in NYC.

A great way to find out information about a specific area in New York. If we hadn't done this tour, we wouldn't have found out about all the different places to go. New York is so much more than just the big sights, and for me the different village locations downtown are the best parts. Combine that with food and what more could you want?!

Take any tour offered by Kurt Upton!

We specifically requested a time that Kurt was leading the tour (having heard 5 mins of his spiel during a previous visit to New York). We weren't disappointed. Topical, funny, personal, and yummy. This tour was terrific. Don't eat much (or anything) in advance.

My wife and I went on the tour, Friday, March 30. The tour was entertaining, enjoyable and the food was great too. I think the tour would have been good regardless, but Kurt made it great. I would highly recommend getting in on one of his groups, he is a fantastic tour guide!

We had a great time with our very energetic guide Curt. He provided get information (funny too) about the market and area and engaged everyone on our tour. Our 15 year old had a great time too. There was a lot of food on this tour, we didn't even have to eat dinner that night
