Overall, we enjoyed the tour. My mother and I travelled from Bucks County, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia via the train. We thought the guide (Curt(sp)) was sensational; he was enthusiastic, animated, knowledgeable and seemed to know the owners and their commitment to their products. He provided a history of the market and its evolution. It was really interesting. We learned about the neighborhood and the food. We learned why there are greenhouse windows in the market and how not all baby carrots are baby carrots. And, why we shouldn’t order the special – I always did?!?. He knew everyone’s name, where they were from so as to make the information targeted for each person. The tour moves quickly so if you want to linger this is not for you. It’s an overview, so you can go back and get what you want … probably with a coupon.

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.

First, our tour guide was excellent --she was very informative, humorous but could've made it more interactive amongst group members. We enjoyed the historical facts and the eateries selected. The tastings were excellent choices and good portions. Not too much idle time spent between stops which made tour time perfect. Would've enjoyed meeting some of the chefs,

Perfect for a rainy day

The Chelsea Markets tour is fun, tasty (loved the lobster bisque!), and informative. It takes place mostly inside the markets, which is fine for a day when the weather is unpleasant. We did enjoy the Greenwich Village tour more than this one because we were out and about and covered more territory. Still, there is much to see and taste inside Chelsea Markets, and our brief excursion to the Highline and the meatpacking district was enjoyable. One member of our group is a vegetarian, and we appreciated the accommodations that were made for her.

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.

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!

Informative and fun tour with some good eats...

Our tour guide was excellent. He was very informative, witty, and quick. We really enjoyed the tidbits to eat too. Our favorite was the fish market and lobster bisque. Only thing I'd have to say is the stop at the italian market felt cramped. We sat pushed into a corner surrounded by boxes and stuff and not enough chairs for everyone. Overall it was the highlight of our trip to NYC. We even went back to Chelsea Market later in the day for dinner and shopping.
