We had Kurt as our tour guide and you can tell that he enjoys his work. No detail was spared and his humour in presenting each establishment was 2nd to none. I was also extremely impreseed with how he can memorize everyone's name in 10 seconds. Highly recommended.

The tour leader, Diana, was extremely enthusiastic and provided a wealth of information for our group at a dizzying pace (this is good) that kept the group on their toes and ready to soak in all of the details. There was a large group within our group (perhaps 12) that consisted of kids in their upper teens. While it would have been more interesting if there had been other group members to mingle with and talk to, it actually made the tour all that more intimate because the "kids" tended to hang back and were somewhat overwhelmed by all of the info and places that we visited. I was always at the front of the pack, listening intently to Diana who was superb in her delivery and energy level.

I got tickets for myself and two friends for a Food Walk during our stay in New York. I'm so happy I did. We all felt that this was the highlight of a wonderful exciting few days. I thought that this would be a fun thing to do. It was so much more. We tasted lovely food, learned so much about the area we visited and Diana made it exciting with her wonderful energy. .In the next week or so, I'm going to arrange to go on a food walk in my own city. I expect that I'll find a friend to come with me.........Thanks for turning me on to Food Walks Diana.

My tour guide Kurt was FANTASTIC ! He brought the group together instantly and made the tour entertaining and informative. I would definitely recommend it to friends but am sure the guide was instrumental in the success of the tour. There was a good balance of factual information and fun and i certainly felt like i knew the area well on completion of the tour ! Request Kurt as your guide !

We ambled through the Chelsea Food Market (old Nabisco plant). Our guide knew a great deal about the bullding's history, art, etc. We tasted many different foods, then did a tour of the HighLine park (abbreviated because or a rain storm), and had a final "sit-down" tasting at a very nice Italian restaurant in the district. This was a very good tour, enhanced by an exceptional guide.

I was a little concerned that our group was so large (15) but it was so well organized that it worked out well. The stops were all fun and the guide was excellent. I would do this tour again!

Did the Meatpacking/Chelsea Market tour. It was one of the most entertaining and fun things I have done in a long time. Our tour guide Curt simply was amazing. Looking forward to be on one of his tours again.
