Informative and Fun experience

We had a few relatives visiting from out of town and took the tour. Everyone enjoyed it, including the 13 year old. Probably could have used 1 additional opportunity to sit for 5-10 minutes. 3 hours, plus the wait for the tour is a long time to stand with a short 20 minute sit at the end. Our guide, Chris, was fantastic. He was personable, very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. He had a great ability to keep people engaged and good knowledge of the area. His talks did not sound as if the exact same words had been said over and over. Based on other people's comments in the group, they agreed. My relatives enjoyed this so much, they want to do another one the next time they visit!

Everyone on the tour was friendly and the guide Daryel was quite entertaining. I would do it again when I return to Newyork.

We were lucky enough to have Curt Upton as our guide again. We learnt heaps about the area and its food in a most entertaining way as curt made us laugh from start to finish. We'd highly recommend these tours, it's money we'll spent.

Curt was the best host ever! He controlled the group and kept non group people at bay while giving tons of interesting information....but all the while keeping it really fun. Plenty to eat too.

Snacking our way through charming Chelsea Market

This was my second food tour and both times I have had Kurt as our guide. He sets the tone for an informative and wonderfully entertaining snacking tour of New York City neighborhoods from past to present day. Chelsea Market is an amazing place that should not be missed! It was a wet, blustery day so being inside for most of the tour was perfect. From chocolate milk and cupcakes to mini meat pies - every bite was amazing. A walk along the High Line helped the digestion before the final tasting of the day in the Meatpacking District. The history surrounding this pocket of the city and it's transformation into one of today's coolest neighborhoods in New York , makes for a fascinating, tasty and fun day.

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!!

Disappointed

It was very crowded. There really was not much food for tasting. We were all hungry after the tour. I was was extremely disappointed and do not recommend this particular tour.
