Best tour ever!

We thoroughly enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour! Our guide Darrel B. was bursting with energy and knowledge about the market and surrounding area. He was very entertaining. We had PLENTY to eat; we should have skipped breakfast! Only downside: this is NOT about the tour but about the market -- only 3 restrooms to accommodate all of the market! RIDICULOUS! The shops and stores should put some pressure on the property owners to increase the number of restrooms.

Curt did a great job of getting us many places with lots of fun facts. He's a "foodie" and it shows. Was a wonderful way to see the area; loved going to the Highline and into Greenwich a little. Great event. Will do it again!

I have been to NY several times as I have relatives here and was looking for something different to do. Enjoyed this immensely. Our guide, Curt, was excellent and I would recommend this tour as a great way to learn about a specific area. Will do another tour next time I am in NY

Great experience on Chelsea Market Food tour

On our Honeymoon in NYC, a highlight was the Verve food tour starting at Chelsea Market. The knowledge, enthusiasm and friendliness of the tour guide made for a great experience. We discovered the shops at Chelsea Market and enjoyed the food tastings at the various eateries. The Highline was a beautiful way to see the neighborhood and we'll be back to see the gardens in full bloom ~ what a gift to visitors and New Yorkers! The last stop in the Meatpacking district was delicious, we enjoyed the restaurant and seeing this renovated & chic neighborhood. I plan to give a gift of a Food tour to friends and bring out of town guests for a fun NY experience.

We did not know what to expect, and we were pleasantly surprised. My group of ladies are all local, so it takes alot to impress! The guide Daryl was very entertaining, and our tastings were delicious. All were in agreement- AWESOME!!!!

Food travelling through history of New York .
Thu, Apr 18, 13   10:00 AM KayLyon Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The tour leader was fun and enthusiastic and the group was not larger, about ten of us. We sampled various foods and looked in on some of the great restaurants of this town. One of the best things about this tour is that the information and stories were interwoven with the history of New York. I loved hearing of the characters and struggles involved with Chelsea Market; the man who bought the derelict market; the artist and individual shop owners who added their bit. But there was all the history of the Meat Packing district too, delivered by our well informed tour leader. As an Australian tourist I didn't get time to re check everything but will on my next visit.
