The Food Tour of Chelsea Market was wonderful.....made even better by our tour guide Curt!!!!

Curt was most knowledgeable of food, the history of everything, and our names. My friend and I returned to the market two days later to shop and Curt was there and hw remembered our names!!! He is truly an exceptional employee.......give him a raise!!!

The chosen places for our visit were the best. The food was delicious!!!

Cannot believe that I have been to NYC and not been to the Meatpacking district.....but will now on every visit!!!

This was the first tour of its kind that we particpated in and found it very enjoyable - more so because of our entertaining guide Cindy. She kept our attention, provided great information and gave us time to absorb and interact, while moving us along all the time. I was very keen to see and walk on the High Line - and the tour offered that and much more. Just being in Chelsea Market and understanding the history of the building was so very interesting.

5 ***** (stars) out of a max of 5.

My husband and I were very pleased with this fun tour of Chelsea Market. Our guide, Kurt, was just great. He was funny and accomodating and knew the territory. We would recommend this tour to our family and friends in the future. We could have stayed longer...and we liked the samples of food that were included...maybe more cheese and less chocolate milk would have been preferred for those of us in our 60' about a taste of wine??

We all had a great informative, tour led by Bob. We learned alot, didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. It was more than expected. We also had a wonderful group of people and by the end of the last meal we felt we were with family.

A great time was had by us.

Must do!

For anyone who loves food and learning about an area, this is a tour you must do. Not only was it informativie about the foods and business owners, but also about the history of the area. In an era of big box and discount stores, it is terrific to see small businesses flourish. Hats off to them and to the developer(s) who had the vision.

After doing the Soho & Greenich Village tour last visit we decided to do the Chelsea Markets tour.

It was so interesting to visit all the stores & taste their delicious food. Tour guide was very informative & fun.

Definately recommend to everyone but don't have any breakfast so you can taste everything.

Excellent Sampling -- Highly recommend

The tour offered a great sampling of the foods available inside the market and in the environs. Would have enjoyed more about the historical development and importance of the market but this in no way detracts from the enjoyability of the tour.

We highly recommend this tour,

Great Tour--Excellent Guide

I travel to NY frequently and sometimes have to stay over the weekend due to the weather. This tour was a delight and great use of time! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and had lots of historical additions as well as a few pictures. She knew all the owners of every place we went and they all appeared glad to see her. Until the tour, I didn't realize the connection the building had with the Food Network.

It was very informative and enjoyable. we had a great group of people from everywhere and Cindy was a fantastic guide. we learned a lot about the history of the area as well as the Chelsea Market itself. The food was wonderful as well. Great chance to try old favorites as well as new things.

A delightful and delicious experience!

The tour started with food and ended with a wonderful penthouse view of Chelsea. Both my wife and I were delighted with the food, tour guide, tour comapanions and overall experience. We hightly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see a unique part of NYC. The food was delicisous and varied. Since we both have sweet tooths we enjoyed the cookies, jam etc as well as the other appetisers. The tour kept our interest, it balanced eating with history and touring and sitting with walking.

We both recommend it for anyone though we don't think children under 15 would enjoy it.
