What an excellent experience! So much history, anecdotes, information and delicious food. Our tour guide was very personable and had great information to share. The shops we visited couldn't have been more accommodating and every tasting was terrific.

I've done the Greenwich Village tour and thought that was excellent as well. I treated a friend to this one as a birthday gift and she was totally surprised at how great the experience was. I am eager to do the Soho one next.

Thanks so much!

This tour was one of the highlights of our 10 day trip to NYC. The guide was energetic and entertaining. We wish we had done this the first weekend we were in town instead of the 2nd so we could have taken better advantage of the wealth of knowledge we gained from the engaging guide.

I 100% recommend this tour. I took my Dad on this tour for Father's Day and both of us enjoyed it. We live 1 hour outside of the city and have never been to Chelsea Market or the Meatpacking district. I had originally signed 2 other people to come with me, and last minute 1 backed out. Our tour guide named Kurt was top notch. He was full of energy and there was never a dull moment. He kept the group on their toes and informed every minute of the 3 hours. He took the time to get to know each and everyone of us and once he knew I was missing 1 person he made sure I took home some goodies to the missing person. I loved everything I tasted and thought the set up was well organized. Going in to this I was thinking the food tasting portions would be small. I was wrong. The cookie I tasted was so big it lasted me to the next to spots. Kurt gave lots of information on the history of Chelsea Market and the Meatopacking district and my dad loved that! I give this tour a A+ and its great for the price. I would recommend this to everyone!!!

As I also did the Greenwich Village tour, this tour was recommended. Honestly I thought the Greenwich tour was much nicer since everything was outdoors and the Chelsea Mkt was indoor. Unfortunately at the day I was at the Mkt tour, it was pooring rain and indoor was better. Still, it was an interesting tour with a lot of information and good food. I would recommend this tour for sure.

so exceeded my expectations,!! i recommend this tour to any foodie or person wanting to learn more about chelsea market and meat packing district. (to appreciate this area on your own would be overwhelming and you would probably miss something).. my tour guide, kurt wins the award for best and most interesting tour guide of the big apple!! he knew everyones name, great sense of humor and had so many interesting tidbits, full of knowledge and suggestions. i didnt want the tour to end!! thank you kurt for making that a wonderful day !! also thank you for the yummy food,( i was too full to eat dinner that night! )this was a great way to sample the best of the best. p.s. i also enjoyed my walk back on the "high -line"

Informative Tour

My husband and I took this tour because it was one of the least known areas of New York for us. I would highly recommend this tour. We learned that the 1st oreo cookie was made in the old factory building . Our tour guide was Fantastic!!!!! He made the tour an A+. He had a knowledge of not only the restuarants and businesses we toured, he also knew about the food industry. Very smart, witty, and personal. By the end of the tour, he knew everyone by first name and where they lived. I would request him again.

Our tour guide Curt was fun and very energetic. He knew alot about the marketplace itself and his passion for the subject was clearly evident. I highly reccomend both the tour and Curt as a tour guide.
