Our tour guide was Kurt Upton and he was absolutely hilarious. He is a stand-up comic at night and does tours during the day. What a great combination--interesting stories about the area and great food from a variety of upscale fooderies. This is the third food tour I have done and while all were very good, this one was especially great because of Kurt. He really made the tour an unforgettable experience. I hope you are as lucky as we were to have such a great tour guide.

My husband and I went on the tour on one of the coldest weekends. It was great! Our guide was very informative and the food was outstanding. I knew my sister would love it so I took her for her Bday the next week, one of the warmest we've had in months. She loved it even more than I. Suggestion: there are smaller crowds at the market on cold days so if you don't care pick the cold day for your tour. Just go, you'll love it. Hi to guides Darrel and Cindy who were fantastic!

Our tour guide made the whole trip very enjoyable and interesting. The foods were terrific and enough to satisfy us. By the time it was over we were very satisfied and not a bit hungry. A little of everything and most delicious.

Having been on a Walking Tour two years ago we were anxious to try another one. Our previous tour through Greenwich Village was delightful and informative so we knew that we could expect a high level of entertainment. We were not disappointed with the Chelsea Market Tour. Kurt, our guide, was professional, funny and full of information about the vendors and location. It helped that the vendors we visited were very gracious, and shared their time with us during the busy holiday season. We had plenty of food tastings, and learned quite a bit of information and history about the area. Thanks for a great time.

The tour of Chelsea Market and the Meat Packing area was great! Our tour guide Bob is a real professional who provided the group with much information and insight into the area. All of the food tastings were very good. We were introduced to many of the specialty markets and restraunts in the area. I highly recommend this tour for the price and for the informative and fun event.

The tour was so much more than I anticipated. Our guide was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and enthusiastic, he made the tour so much fun. Everyone that we encountered in the different venues was friendly and seemed glad that we were there. All the food that we tasted was delicious. I loved seeing the old factory brought back to life. I am thankful that there are people with a vision and brave enough to fight for it. We certainly plan to do another tour in the near future.
