Great guide

Daryl, our guide, was incredibly enthusiastic about everything! I wish there was more food on the tour. Chelsea market is fantastic. We got some more food after the tour in the market. There is so much to choose from...would take a few times to figure out which restaurant is your favorite. If you are wanting some great info on the market, a little sampling...then this tour is a great place to start discovering.

My 4th time...doing w/ friend from Fla. This was one of the best...last one done 2 yrs. ago. Like the fact that we were allowed some time in between each stop to shop. Darrel was excellent!

A good look at two of NYC's newer attractions, Chelsea Market and The High Line. And tour guide Curt made it double the pleasure. He was very funny, very social, well organized and very knowledgeable. Brought the 20 or so of us all together so we felt like friends on an outing. We got more than full measure for the price, great fun and we saw and learned a lot that we, even as NYC dwellers of 50-plus years, had never seen or heard.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was the most informative and enjoyable three hours of our holiday! To be recommended to everyone, young and older. The guide was a pleasure to spend time with and impressed us by addressing everyone by their first name even though he had only just met us. What a great tour, thank you!

Chelsea Market Tour and Meatpacking district.

First trip to New York City and wanted more of an insiders guide and more depth than just walking through. We met Darrell, our actor/guide on time and we enjoyed his technique to make the group cohesive by saying our names as he made points. We had all of the taste treats promised, a deluxe bathroom break and lots of area info. We enjoyed Darrell's tour very much but wish we had gone on a weekday and not a Sunday due to the crowds inside the market. It would also be great if the tour used those wireless microphones, which would also ensure we could all hear all the time. Darrell was not at fault as the crowds moving around us were just loud moving past us. We asked ourselves if we could have walked through the market on our own and discovered what was good about the products we sampled and the answer was no. We would not have even known to try these foods. We got recommendations on local places to eat and enjoyed going up on the Highline park. The last restaurant where we sat and had a small plate of pasta and bolognese sauce was just ok. They had an opportunity to keep us with a wow...we all had only had samples all afternoon...but our lackluster pasta was only half eaten by the lady from Italy and her daughter. Overall enjoyable and would take another.

I really loved this tour. I got it for my mom's birthday because she loves food. But I also loved it too. You get lots of food, history, and fun in this tour. I would definitely recommend. Ask for Curt as a tour guide for some extra fun and excitement!!

Great tour

Our Guide was very informative and had a great personality. Amazed how he could remember 15 names throughout the tour! He made everyone feel welcome and was able to answer all questions. The food was good and there was plenty. Only complaint is that it ended 20 minutes short of the 3 hours.
