I have taken this tour before but loved Kurt's enthusiastic version. He remembered everyone's name and where they were from. Kurt was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting or living in NYC.

This was a fun intro to New York , the food was an excellent taste of what the market had to offer and the little tour of the high line was great. Our guide had lots of interesting stories and histories but was never long winded or dry. More than a food tour; we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Our tour guide, Darryl + all the free food samples (be sure you come hungry) + the history of the marketplace and the meatpacking district was very interesting. Walking along the High Line was likewise interesting and the views were great. Would definitely recommend this tour for any group.

I enthusiastically recommend this tour. Not only was the food excellent, I learned a great deal about New York City in the process. The tour guide Bob was excellent, he was funny and definitely enhanced the quality of the tour with his humor and knowledge of the city and the Chelsea area. My only recommendation would be to make sure you bring additional water as you only get one bottle at the beginning of the tour.

It was well presented by our tour guide. The shops that we visited were excellent and the tastings as well. I would be very happy to recommend this tour to anyone as one of the many places that should be seen.

This is a great tour that won't leave you as stuffed as you might think since there is quite a bit of walking to burn off the calories from all the delicious tastings, though I did skip breakfast since I was on the 10:30am tour after reading that suggestion in another review. Bob was a wonderful guide and I truly enjoyed the time spent in his company as well as that of our group which consisted of locals and travelers. I was by myself, and late thanks to a cab driver taking me on a way out of the way route resulting in me jumping out of the cab and sprinting the final 9 blocks, but the office staff was very helpful in directing me to where I could meet up with the group and Bob was welcoming and assured me I hadn't missed the first tasting. Whew!! The tastings covered a broad range of foods available at the Market and there was something for everyone. So go, eat, and enjoy!
