This was our second food tour with Zerve and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting New York. Kurt was an amazing guide - he was able to engage all members of the group, including our 16 yr old daughter. These tours are a wonderful way to learn about specific areas of New York and the foods that go along with them.

Kurt was our tour guide and he was excellent. He is extremely knowledgable, has great energy, is very friendly, and remembered everyone's name on the tour...and there were about 14 or 15 of us! Absolutely worth the time and money to see a side of NYC that we typically wouldn't have explored by ourselves.

Our tour guide, Cindy, was so much fun. She was extremely personable and knew so much about Chelsea Market! My husband and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

Cindy was a fantastic guide. This is an area that we didn't know anything about. Very interesting history and it seems to be the Happening place.

Great laughs and good food!

What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon! We greatly enjoyed this tour of Chelsea market. Kurt, our guide, was a part time stand up comic and we could tell! What a riot. Both his scripted bits and the off the cuff stuff. Our bellies hurt from laughing so much. The food was also fabulous. We were surprised by the portion size of our tasting, giant cookies, whole bowls of soup, plates full of Italian delicacies..we were stuffed. Overall this was super. Our only regret was that we really couldn't shop...no where to keep the fish and cheese back at the hotel. We definitely want to return for shopping on our way home from NYC on our next trip.

This was a great tour, particularly for a chilly winter day, as it was mostly inside. The Meatpacking District is such a cool area, and Chelsea Market has some wonderful food shops, including an Italian place where we tried meats, cheeses, and olives, and Lobster Place, where we tried clam chowder and lobster bisque. Our tour guide was funny, informative, and just an overall good guy.

The food was plenty and amazing. It made me go back for more. As a foodie myself, it was the absolute highlight of the tour! =) Our tour guide was incredible!! His name was Kurt. He is a comedian and very knowledgeable about the food and the city. PLEASE, try to get him as he made the tour so much fun!! He surprised us with sneak peeks of Batali's and Morimoto's Restaurants during non-business hours and was very personal with us making sure we were all happy and enjoying the tour at all times. SO MUCH FOOD AND FUN FOR A SMALL PRICE!!!! =)

Good Food and Interesting History

Chelsea Market is a must go-to for anyone visiting NYC. The food in so many of the stores is unbelievably good and affordable. The tour is highly recommended to learn about the background of the establishments, the building itself, the people who made it happen, and about the Meat Packing and Chelsea areas in general. Since most of the tour is indoors, it's a good choice when the weather is bad.

My boyfriend and I live in New York City. We moved here this summer. We took the Greenwich Village tour a few months ago and loved that. The Meatpacking Tour was everything we expected and more. Great guide and fantastic food! Highly recommended!
