Great Food and Fun

The three hour tour flies by as you explore the Chelsea Market, MEPA and the far West Village. Our guide, Kurt was exemplary: witty knowledgeable and attentive. The sampling of foods adds up to a fine varied peripatetic lunch. Learned about local lore and the fine points of meat cutting. Will go again and recommend to friends: Turly a movable feast!

A great way to spend 3 hours. Very informative, the food samplings were great, and the guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Money well spent.

Best Tour Ever!

We met Kirk at the Chelsea Market and within five minutes, he remembered all our names and made the tour more friendly. My husband and I had a 14 yr.old grand daughter and her Mom traveling with us. She enjoyed it as much as anyone. It is great to learn about a hidden gem (for us) in NYC. We will be back to frequent the shops in the Market. Kirk was a fount of knowledge and is quite the "name dropper".

Thanks for offering this great tour, it was much better than the previous tour we had with you. Keep up the good work and come up with a new tour for our next visit!

Thanks, Linda

Tour guide Kirk wae fantastic. Chelsey market was uniquely suited for a great tour. Variety of locations visited was superb. Timing was perfect. Understanding the food, it's processing and seeing it live was very informative. Overall, we had a very enjoyable time and would recommend this tour to all our friends. We are also planning to bring any of out of state guests on this tour. Thank you for your service.

On any tour, the tour guide makes all the difference. Our guide was Curt. Within the first 5 minutes, he knew each of our names and where we were from. He was a barrel of energy, had a fantastic personality, and everyone just loved him.

The tour itself was most interesting, and Curt told us the history of each place with humor and joy. We could tell he loves what he does.

At first, we were afraid we wouldn't be able to keep up with him, but we did.

We took the Central Village tour last week, and did not enjoy it nearly as much.
