Cannot say enough good about Bob, our guide. charming, witty, tremendously knowledgeable. Would follow him anywhere....LOL. Tour was interesting and I surely will return to Chelsea Marketplace. I had

Curt as a guide some years ago.....where he is hysterically funny and fun.....Bob is just all around, a wonderful tour guide. My brother and I thoroughly enjoyed him.

3 hours of relaxed enjoyable fun with great tastings. Tour guide had fantastic knowledge of the market and its environment. History of Chelsea Market from when it initiated the ups and downs and where it is today. My wife and I have nothing but raves.

Our guide, Kurt, knew information about all of the places that we visited and included little stories which made everything all the more interesting and fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to try foods from the Chelsea Market. We even saw Mario Batali who was in his restaurant having a photo shoot.

Excellent Glimpse into Chelsea

3 adult women on this tour whose knowledge of Chelsea is from the FOODNETWORK. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and continually shared insights and tidbits that could NEVER be learned just touring on our own. This tour involves lots of tastes, sights, and pretty rigorous walk. It was much more strenuous than the Greenwich Village tour we took 3 years ago. I recommend any of the Walking Taste tours after having this second great experience!

Wonderful food experience, recyclying Mfg Facility

Valuable to learn the 4 Ws for a major producting portion of NYC, how it fell into disuse and how it was rescued (DelTouche) because there was a basis for both a market & a sustainable profit contribution that would eventual increase the use and change of an entire neighborhood; ...One with an increasing demand from a greater segment of it citizens. Experience holds all the applications of recycling, green applications, cut-carbon-foot-print, live/work in same place, hold on to historical buildings, save worthy design standards (architectural, meat market, baking, railway) while allowing it to thrive as an attractive re-addition to the whole body which remains and advances the unique world-class place that only is found in NYC.

An excellent way to spend three hours in NY

A great experience. Learned a lot of history and certainly enjoyed all the food most especially the Manhattan clam chowder at The Lobster Place. We started off with a big cupcake and we both feel that the smaller one would be better.

This was a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon--exploring New York from a whole new angle and tasting great food for 3 hours. The whole group enjoyed the experience immensely. Bob Gelber, our tour guide, was terrific, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I recommend the tour highly.

Our tour guide was interesting and knew all the history of the area. The Chelsea Market building was wonderfully restored and had great shops and a diversity of foods. One young lady in the group had a birthday and the Italian restaurant provided a small dessert with sparkler and we all sang. What a great way to see the real NY, sample the ethnic foods and have fun. Really, a must-do activity for the curious visitor!!

A great experience

This is our second food tour, and although we enjoyed the first Greenwich Village tour, this one was even better. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgable and interesting to listen to. The tasting experiences were varied and tasty. We went back to the market after to revisit many of the places we had been introduced to.
