We took our parents on the Chelsea Market tour with Kurt and it was better than we all could have expected. Kurt knew everyone's name from the start, was knowledgable, funny and made 3-hours really fun! As locals we enjoyed learning more about the market while trying excellent food. Highly recommend for locals, groups or visitors to NYC!

Fabulous Insider Access to the Chelsea Market!

Our guide, Darrell was as entertaining as he was knowledgeable. Full of fun facts and stories, he had an amazing way of connecting with the group and by the end of the 3 hours, we were all friends! The food tastings were quite a treat and a nice overall sampling of the best of the market. We also ventured outside of the market to the surrounding neighborhood including the High Line which is a must-see. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough - I would have been overwhelmed if I tried to maneuver Chelsea Market on my own!

The food was delicious, the weather was perfect. The pace was good and I enjoyed the impromptu stops. Most importantly Curt was an EXCELLENT guide, I truly enjoyed myself from beginning to end.

Very through and entertaining history of the area and establishments by our tour guide Curt. He really made the tour. Food choices delicious, fun and varied. Would love a tasting at the Lobster Place.

This is a wonderful way to get to know the district, the city's history and the diverse food choices and philosophies. Recommended for people who want to see the everyday and unusual from something other than a bus.

Terrific Tour

Our guide, Curt, was terrific - he had endless energy and lots of information about food and the city, with some gossip and verbal recipes thrown in for good measure.

He was fantastic at remembering everyone's name, too - don't know how he did it, but it worked.

It was a great tour, especially the hotel roof it ended up on at the end - we stayed there awhile afterward for a drink, and it was lovely and cool on a very hot day in the city.

The only negative is that Curt was not aware that I'm veggie.

When we were deciding which tour to book (this will be our third FONY tour), the person I spoke with said that, even though it was the meatpacking tour, they would arrange for some veggie alternatives for me.

Curt was able to do that after I mentioned it, but it would have been more considerate for the shops if they'd known ahead of time.

Other than that, like the previous tours, it was informative, the perfect length, with a great guide and plenty of food to sample.

Great way to see Chelsea Market

My adult son and I went on this tour. It is our second food tour. Our tour guide Darrell was funny and full of great stories about the Market. The food was good and a great variety. We were walking for about three hours with chances to sit occasionally. We also went to the Hiline Park and walked thru the Meat Market area. I would go on another food tour when I am in NYC.
