I was great fun and the tastes were great.

Tour was great and having moments of sitting helped make it through the 3 hrs. It was great getting to know all the food options available in the Market. The tour guide was charmingly witty.

We were entertained by our clever, witty, food knowledgeable, guide Kurt. He made the tour!

The food information and tastings were very good and I would not have ventured into the Chelsea Market area if I had not signed up for the tour, so I was glad that I did.

I took the Greenwich Tour 2 years ago and really enjoyed it because it included not only the food but history of the area and architecture as well. It was a cold day for our Chelsea tour so we were inside for 2 +hours ( had to carry coat and bag) which was okay, but it was nice to walk outside and especially nice to see the inside of the B&B.

But again, Kurt was terrific.

Our tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. Learned a lot about the Chelsea Market and the Meat packing district. Would recommend this tour even to a local person. I have lived in N.J. all my life and have never been to this area. I will return to this area and would love to do another tour. Will have to check your site.

We had friends in from out of state. I had taken this tour earlier this year and considered it one of the best I have taken. We took our friends on the tour, and they thought it was great.

Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowlegable.

I would recommend this tour to all.

Good for both tourists and locals. Bad weather prevented us from enjoying outside part of tour but the tour guide was inventive and kept us entertained. Food was excellent.

This experience far exceeded our expectations! It was outstanding! We could not stop talking about what a great experience it was - a true highlight of our visit to NYC!

Chelsea market is an amazing place!! We had no idea how great it is.

Curt, our tour guide, was the best! He was very informative and entertaining and helped make our tour a most memorable experience. The samples were delicious and generous in size! Don't miss this experience the next time you go to NYC!!

Second Visit Was First Rate Again

My husband and I had toured Chelsea Market 18 months ago and enjoyed it so much that we invited friends to join us for our second visit. They just kept repeating, "How fun is this!" at each and every stop. Our tour guide, Darrell (sp?), was fun and informative and we ended up friends. The market itself was, again, clean, attractive and inviting. The "tastings" were delicious at every stop. We will definitely visit again.

Food Heaven

We enjoyed the Chelsea Market and all of its history. The tasting of all the wonderful foods is a treat and look forward to going back and shopping there. The outside sites are just okay. I recommend that you do not take the visitors to NYC that are on the tour to a place called Hogs and Heifers. They were rude and vulgar when the food tour entered their establishment.
