A wonderful way to spend 3 hours

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.

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.

Great way to spend a few hours in NYC

Loved the Chelsea Market tour. Hard to decide how to spend your time and money in NYC with so many things to do but this is certainly well worth it! Daryll was our tour guide and we found him to be very entertaining, knowledgeable and he seemed to be enjoying the tour as much as we were. The samples were generous in size and the number of stops we made was impressive! We've been on other foodie tours and this rates right at the top!! Our thanks to Daryll for a very enjoyable time, in spite of the oppressive heat!!

Don't miss this tour.

Since we were in New York during a heat wave, this tour was a welcome relief. The a/ c in the Chelsea Food Market only added to an awesome 3 hour tour. Our guide was amazing holding our interest with stories about days gone by in this meat packing industry. The stores that we visited were perfect giving us an overview of what this market offers. The web site will tell you to come hungry and believe it for sure. We had lots of samples and every one of them was delicious. The tour guide gave us a little time to shop during the tour and of course we went back after it was over.. If I lived in NY I would want to live near this market. The walk on the High Line was an extra treat even though it was very hot. We cooled off going back inside the market. When I visit NY again, I will definitely come back to this market. It's also a great place to buy stuff for friends and family back home.

We lived in Westchester County 13 years ago and now live in Kentucky. We visit NYC every other year. This is the first tour that we have ever taken. We can't wait to visit again and take another tour. Our guide was wonderful - knowledgable, courteous, and very entertaining. This tour was the highlight of our 5-day trip.

This is my second food tour with zerve, my date was the 5th April @11am, and as my first tour the tour leader she was fantastic, the places she told our tour of the Chelsea market her expertise of the meat packing district made the tour a pleasure. I am back in Melbourne Australia & one of my friends is going to New York in September & she & her friend are doing two tours the original that I did a few years ago & this one. I will back again in New York & will be going another. Thank you once again Lois of Melbourne
