Our tour guide, Darrell Blackburn was exceptional! He engaged everyone in the group and was entertaining as well as informative. Everything we tasted during the tour was delicious and the merchants were friendly and helpful when we returned to the shops after the tour. I would highly recommend this tour to others.

Great history tour but only a fair food tour

Our tour guide, Diana, was very informative and entertaining. We learned alot about the history of the area. So as a history tour it was great, but as a food tour only so-so. Many of the samples were pretty meager - i.e., a small cucumber stick with salt on it, one caramel, one ounce of chocolate milk, etc. Why bother to stop for that?

Due to unexpected weather our cruise was more than 2 hours late into NY. Our group of 4 was looking to the Chelsea market tour. We were extremely disappointed that they were unable to offer any options other than 100 per cent forfeit

This is a great introduction to the market and surrounding area, the food sampling was varied and tasty and our guide Bob was chearfull, informative and passionate about the area particularly the Highline which is also included in the tour. A return to the market at the end of the tour is a must and the tour itself is highly recommended

Fantastic NYC tour and tour guide!

This Chelsea market walking tour was the best $49 (ea) we ever spent on something like this...our guide was fantastic...he made it incredibly fun, entertaining and informative for the full 3 hours. 5 minutes from its start, he had everyone in our group knowing each other's names and where we were all from. By the end of it we all felt like new friends.... My mom and I went to together and we both love to cook, so this was a really special thing to do together. It's definitely not for kids unless they are learning to cook - maybe around age 10 and upward and definitely not small children. For adults, it was wonderful and we had a ball! What's better than laughing, (our guide was one of the funniest, brightest guides I've ever seen), tasting amazing foods and making new friends over great food with the best NYC tour guide ever?? Nothing! I can't wait to bring my husband next time and I've highly recommended it to other friends and family for a great NYC thing to do!

This is our second Tasting Tour and it was every bit as good (maybe even better) than the first we did 2 years ago. The guides are so knowledgeable and the food is so good. What more could you ask for; you get to walk, see the sites, sit down and eat, and learn alot about the area all at the same time! Cindy our guide had the right mix of entertainment and interesting historical facts, she is a gem! I whole-heartedly recommend this tour.

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.
