Fun day out with Curt
Sun, Jun 1, 14   2:00 PM asjo74 Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I've been on the Original Greenwich tour, and it was brilliant, so of course I had to take a tour when I finally got back to NY 5 years later. The Chelsea market is that kind of place I wish I could go to in my hometown, filled with nice small shops offering great products, from bread to lobsters, wine to salt and a whole lot of other stuff in between. Our guide was the energetic Jim Carrey-like Curt Upton, who spoke rapidly and lovingly about the food, outlets and owners, with a pinch of New York snark. We got to sample meat, cheese, salt, donuts, bisquits with jam and marmelade, crustada, fudge, pasta, cupcakes and a wonderful chocolate milk. We had a great time, only wish that we could have maybe spent a few more minutes up on the Highline Park, since our tour finished 20 minutes early anyway. All in all a wonderful tour and our group was great.

En mycket trevlig matvandring.

En trevlig rundvandring i en supermysig saluhall.

Goda smakprov i de olika butikerna.

Mycket detaljerad information angående saluhallen och närområdet.

Mycket roliga produkter att köpa med hem.

Darrell, our tour guide, was fantastic (he actually made the tour so much fun)! Very enthusiastic, funny, kept the group going - loved visiting all the different places, and all the tastings. Would definitely do it again!

Fun way to see Chelsea Market
Sun, May 25, 14   2:00 PM mkovalik Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The tour exceeded my expectations on fun and interesting information. Exploring the Chelsea Market on your own could be overwhelming, so I think this is a great way to see a little bit of a lot of things. Be prepared to be on your feet. The only mistake we made was we had walked most of the day prior to our tour, so being on my feet was a bit tiring at that point. Most of the food was great, some was good, but nothing bad. We weren't stuffed afterward, but you get a little bit of this and that over the time period so you won't be hungry, but I wouldn't show up on a totally empty stomach. I loved it, I would totally do a tour with them again. Our tour guide Darryl was great and heard from others that every tour they've taken with this company was great as well.

Fantastic and worthwhile Tour
Sun, May 18, 14   2:30 PM IngaCarlmark Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband and I were recommended to do this tour by friends that had done it a couple of years previously.

We just booked it and didn't look into it too much.

We were both completely impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was great to learn and about so much past and present history of the area and the array of food and drink was fantastic. We were quite full but still went back to buy a few samples to take home with us.

Also, being a vegetarian they looked after me just as well as the others.

Awesome day!

Chelsea Market Food Tour Review

My husband and I were in NY for a long weekend. We really enjoyed the food tour. Got a good lay of the land inside the market and went back after the tour to purchase some of the food we tasted. Our tour guide had a lot of interesting tid bits to share with the group, definitely worth it.

Darrell was such a great tour guide -- we have been on his tour several times and it never gets old. He knows something about everything (it seemed like). My mother is in her late 70's and she thoroughly enjoyed the tour also. You have to go on his tour! It's Great!!
