The tour was wonderful. It was filled with good food, laughter and some interesting NY history. The blend of all three made the tour so very enjoyable, thanks to Darrell!

We loved our tour of the Chelsea Market and meat packing district. Our tour guide was informative and entertaining. The food included a wide variety, good sized portions, and all were tasty. It was a hightlight of our trip.

This was an awesome tour. Very educational. Because this tour was on a Saturday afternoon, Chelsea Market was a bit busy and packed. Our AMAZING tour guide Curt (hope this is spelled right) was VERY entertaining and knowledgeable . He did his best to keep us informed among all the "movement and noise" . LOTS of walking on this tour as the meatpacking area is a little spread out. We went into a neighborhood and even went in to see a house!!!! The whole group enjoyed a little history on that as well!!!! Curt is the most hilarious and informative tour guide ever!!!! I would definitely recommend this tour however, I wouldn't do this tour on a Saturday as there is to much people traffic and was a little difficult to hear our guide sometimes.

This tour was fabulous! From beginning to end Kurt gave us great background information on all of the places we visited. Many interesting facts throughout the entire 3 hour tour. Then there is the tasting of all sorts of foods and the samplings were plentiful. I would love to do it again!

This was an outstanding tour of Chelsea market. The tour guide (Darrel) was highly energetic, very knowledable, funny and entertaining. He kept everyone's attention throughout the tour. The food tasting was great as well, with a wide variety of samples to give us a good flavor of the marketplace. Don't miss this one and request Darrel if you can :)

My sisters and I shared a terrific three hours with our group lead by the entertaining and interesting guide, Darryl. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the food was delicious! The tour was well-planned and we were so well taken care of. It was a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Thank you, thank you. Maria

The tour was great and provided not only an opportunity to taste foods local to the area, but it also provided us with the history of the market. Our guide, Daryl, was amazing and helped to bring everything to life. I would highly recommend this tour.

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.

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.
