Curt Upton has to be about the best tour guide we have ever known in our years of traveling all over the world. The tour began in the bowels of the Chelsea/meatpacking section. Visually the sights and aromas wafting throughout the area is unparalleled. So before we even met Curt the stage was set. Curt quickly greeted each person, memorized our names and inquired a bit about each person. His knowledge of food and food preparation along with his magnetic personality, quick wit and humor and sensitivity to the needs of each guest was phenomenal. Throughout the huge food mall he seemed to literally know by name everyone who in kind responded to him. The large amount of food samples over the 3 1/2 hour tour more than added up to a full meal. Providing water bottles was a much appreciated touch. This is an experience not to be missed. And no, I am not Curt's mother nor have we ever met him before this tour.

So glad I took the tour. I could have wandered through the area on my own and never known the interesting things that I learned. So much to see in the market that only the guide could point out. Glad it started at 10:00. When I went back in the afternoon the place was too crowded to move.

The tour guide, Kurt, was wonderful. If I knew that he was going to be my guide on other tours, I would absolutely sign up. I enjoyed the tour very much. I would gladly take another tour. Thanks Kurt for the fun.

Firstly, come hungry! A lovely variety of delicious food from a range of vendors in Chelsea Market. Curt was our guide and so full of information and fascinating insights into everything...a great character. The three hours flew by and we walked and talked non-stop. I have been on similar tours in Chicago too and they are all a great way to see an area and learn about its history while trying some very good food. Recommend highly

This is our second Tasting Tour and it was every bit as good (maybe even better) than the first we did 2 years ago. The guides are so knowledgeable and the food is so good. What more could you ask for; you get to walk, see the sites, sit down and eat, and learn alot about the area all at the same time! Cindy our guide had the right mix of entertainment and interesting historical facts, she is a gem! I whole-heartedly recommend this tour.

Great Tour

A great tour, a more than great guide. I learned many things about the market, the products and the area. Curt is not only a great guide and entertainer, he knows also a lot of the products they sell at the market. And you get very interesting and funny side stories. I would definately do the tour a second time when back in New York.

Chelsea Market tour

I enjoyed the tour - but if you have problems walking this tour may not be for you. The food was very delicious and made you want to try more items. Make sure to bring a lot of water for even though it is provided more may be needed depending on time of year that you go. Also may want to bring a bag w/you if you plan on purchasing any items.
