Highlight of our trip!

Every year a group of us go to NYC for our "girlfriends getaway". We usually do the same things every year...decided to try something new and saw an ad for this tour. It was a blast! Our guide was excellent, the history of the area was interesting and all the food was yummy! We plan to take the Soho/Greenwich tour next time.

Quality of tour and leader made me a hero

Our group was 3 couples , all interested in the history, local character of the

neighborhood, and unique quality and variety of the "groceries" at the market.

K(C?)urt, our well informed and lively tour leader, made the 3 hours the best

any of us spent while in NYC. Don't miss this opportunity to taste great food and

get a real feel for this neat part of NYC.

The others in the group were so pleased with my recommendation to do

the tour, I was a hero for the day!

This was the second food tour our group had taken. It was another great experience and introduced us to many new places we hope to revisit. Our guide was wonderful and made the tour informative and enjoyable. Thanks.

Our tour guide, Kurt, was the best!

My husband and I loved hearing about the history of the Market, and surrounding areas. The food tastings were great - and were such terrific samples.

We would highly recommend this tour - especially with Kurt as the guide.

This tour was very worthwhile. I enjoyed the food samplings and the meatpacking district cultural background. Our guide was very friendly and well informed. Altogether, a rewarding experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Chelsea market and Meatpacking district are fascinating and made all the more enjoyable by fantastic tour guide - Kurt!

All the food samples were yummy and we purchased several items to enjoy at home. Certainly one to be recommended.

great tour, esp for foodies

Our guide was Cindy - she was wonderful. Well-informed and entertaining without engaging in the idiotic tour guide practices like making us respond in unison! I will take all my out of town visitors on this tour. It is a great intro to high end New York food purveyors. If guests are here only for a weekend, it is perfect, since it introduces them to so many. If they are here for several days, it is a great start and provides lots of excellent tips on a great variety of places to eat during the rest of the stay.

Before we took the Chelsea Market tour we wondered how three hours could possibly be filled up!! Not only did the three hours fly by but we wished the tour could have gone on for more!! Curt, our guide, was fantastic!! He was funny and personable and had all of our names memorized before we even walked to the first store!! The samples from each of the venues were more than generous and delicious. We loved seeing the nearby restaurants, the B&B, and the view from the top of the hotel. All in all, it was one of the best tours we have ever been on--and we've done a few!! I would recommend it to anyone whether you are a foodie or not!! Please keep Curt in your employ!!
