A wonderful afternoon!

I participated in this tour with three friends and we were all delighted with the afternoon. Curt, our tour guide was exceptional and we would love to take another tour with him, perhaps the Greenwich Village tour. The tastings were more than plentiful and very tasty. The background information and history was very interesting and the overall day was one we would all recommend to anyone.

We've done walking tours abroad - this was one of the best! Cindy was well prepared, knowledgeable, and adaptable. We loved all of the areas visited and tastes along the way. We will certainly recommend the tour and consider doing it again when we return.

Beginning with our enthusiastic and informed tour leader our time spent on the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking district tour was fabulous. We were treated to wonderful tastings while we were instructed about our surroundings.

Fun Day

We were a group of five adults who live in Queens, New York and decided we wanted to enjoy our City as tourists.

We had a really fun day and to see the changes in the area was unbelievable. Our tour guide Cindy was very informative and the sampling of the food was plentiful. All in all we had a very pleasant afternoon.

Would recommend it to all.

Chelsea Market Tour a Delicious Afternoon

From the first moment Kurt began our tour we knew we were in for an afternoon of fun. Little did we know just how delightful, informative, delicious, and entertaining it would be! Each tasting was more wonderful than the previous one; it would be impossible to pick a favorite. The history of the entire Chelsea and Meatpacking area was very interesting, and Kurt made it amusing as well. We highly recommended the tour to the others in our group and we will definitely return when we visit New York again.

Superb experience

My husband and I loved the tour -- he liked the historical references as to the history of the building (being a train buff). It was great to see an abandoned building restored to accommodate family owned business. The food was a real treat and Curt, our guide, was knowledgeable, humorous and considerate. It was a great way to learn about the neighborhood as well.

Our guide Kurt was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the area and about food. He was enthusiastic and funny. He made the trip. I think we stayed in one place, the chelsea Market a little too long. It would have been nice to sample restaurants outside the market also. It would have been nice to sample some of the wine in the wine store. I felt the trip lasted the right length but there was too much of it in the Chelsea Market itself although it was interesting what they have done with the building. Since they do so much tv there, it would have been nice to have at least a view of the Food Channel. On the whole it gave a great overview of the area. I still think the best part of the whole trip was Kurt.

Great tour, terrific guide

Having done the Greenwich tour last Spring and enjoyed it, we decided to try the Chelsea tour. We were not disappointed! In addition to seeing an area of NYC from a native's view, the food is great and we again took away restaurant recommendations that we will use in coming visits. Can't say enough about Curt. He was an outstanding guide: funny, informative, concerned. The perfect "host" and group leader. Our only regret is that there are only two tours and now we've done them both. Add some new venues: we'll be there next Spring!
