Took tour with my 25 yr old daughter and 14 others ..a variety of ages and backgrounds. Our tour guide was animated, interesting, and informative. We had lots of fun, laughs, and a variety of foods. Definitely would recommend.

This is a great tour that won't leave you as stuffed as you might think since there is quite a bit of walking to burn off the calories from all the delicious tastings, though I did skip breakfast since I was on the 10:30am tour after reading that suggestion in another review. Bob was a wonderful guide and I truly enjoyed the time spent in his company as well as that of our group which consisted of locals and travelers. I was by myself, and late thanks to a cab driver taking me on a way out of the way route resulting in me jumping out of the cab and sprinting the final 9 blocks, but the office staff was very helpful in directing me to where I could meet up with the group and Bob was welcoming and assured me I hadn't missed the first tasting. Whew!! The tastings covered a broad range of foods available at the Market and there was something for everyone. So go, eat, and enjoy!

We had a wonderful tour- not only all of the tastings, but our guide, Bob Gelber was full of interesting history of the Chelsea market and the local area. We highly recommend both the tour and Bob

The Chealsey Market food tour was very informative and interesting. We sampled many good foods and our guide, Cindy, was knowledgable and friendly. 3 hours passed very quickly. Would take the tour again next time we are in NY.

Just a really good time

The great: the tour guide, Kurt. The eh: the food. I previously did a food tour of the lower east side and, to be honest, the food was better both in variety and taste. But here, Kurt made the whole experience fun. He offered some good recipes I will definitely try. He spoke about the history of Chelsea Market. He walked with us through High Line Park, which we really enjoyed. It all would have been better if the weather was less humid but it was great to spend the day with friends and Kurt was an A++++ Next time I might choose a different tour for food variety but it was a good idea to spend part of a hot steamy day indoors at Chelsea Market. This tour is highly recommended.

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.
