Curt was most informative & entertaining as our food tour guide. As "native" New Yorkers taking our Floridian teenage grandson around, we discovered a NYC treasure for ourselves - the Chelsea Market. Not only do we plan to return there on our own, but several of our friends plan to go to the Chelsea Market (& possibly the Meatpacking District) based on our recommendation.

The Tour Was Excellent

The tour was a delightful way to spend a few hours. It provided me with the history of this area of the City and included projected future plans for the area. Touring old buildings that have been transformed into useful businesses was fun to see and fun for shopping. I plan to revisit this area again. The guide was pleasant and answered any questions the group presented. The group was small enough that we were able to bond for the three hour walking tour. This also made it very pleasant. While this is considered a walking tour, there was ample time to take a few short stops and sit for a bit. I highly recommend this tour to others and hope that they enjoy it as much as my friends and I did. Considering all that was included, we did not feel the need to have lunch, and in fact, I had a light supper that night. I'm now looking forward to taking another tour that I will book through Zerve.

What an interesting tour and the tour guide (C/Kurt) was a good part of what made the tour interesting and very enjoyable. Just the right sense of humor to lead and herd us around the building and the neighborhood telling us about the history and the present.

I recommended this tour to the relatives that live in the area... both because they love food and because they love learning about NYC.

This was my second tour with the same company. I enjoyed it the first time so much that I decided to take my husband and another couple on the tour.

The guide we had was even better than the first one. I think his name was Kirk (?) and he provided so much information, pictures and fun! We all found the history of the market so interesting and, of course, enjoyed the tastings provided. We went back and purchased some items from the various stores and had a snack at one of the restaurants he took us into.

To sum up - a wonderful experience. I now plan on taking the same group to the Greenwich Village Tour.

The tour was enjoyable and delicious. It was made especially fun by the entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide we had - Curt. If you take this tour, ask when he is doing it.

Enjoyable experience

The food we tasted was very good, but I would have liked to sample additional choices. Our tour guide (Curt), although not a native New Yorker, was excellent , and very well informed. His presentation was humorous, enthusiastic and interesting. As a lifelong New Yorker I appreciated all three.

Let me start by saying that I love everything about NYC and have come back often--for the last 52 years.

I try to take at least one walking tour each time I visit... I feel it is the best way to really get to know & feel the particular area.

This Chelsea/Meatpacking Tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was great--he was enthusiastic, knowledgable, helpful, and fun.

I have already suggested this tour to my New York friends.

This tour and the wonderful guide Todd was one of our favorite events while spending 5 days in NYC. We had a small group of 7 at noon on Sunday which added to our enjoyment. The food tasting was great. We feel like we have been part an event and an area that will become a big tourist attraction in the next years as the words gets out and as the Meat Packing area grows with shops and restaurants. I would recommend it to anyone.
