Highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Darrel was great! He was very informative and fun. You get lots of food on the tour. We liked it. Plan to do another Foods of NY tour next time we are in town.

Great tour
Sun, Apr 19  10:00 AM sberghout Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Individual
Out tour guide was Darrel, who was very friendly, funny and enthusiastic. There are only two points of improvement I can think of. First: slow down the pace in which the tastings werde served. It was a little too much in the first hour of the tour. Secondly: Darrel spoke very fast. I could understand him being Dutch because I read a lot of English books and magazines. Members of the group who were less familiair with English had some trouble understanding him at some point. But that's just a minor issue.

Wonderful Experience

Our guide, Darryl, took the time to learn the names of all 15 guests in our group ... and he then treated us to a wonderful tour of various food and drink establishments. He spent time sharing his knowledge of the Chelsea Market as well as the surrounding area. The food we tasted was wonderful. And following the tour, we returned to numerous stores within the Market to make purchases to take home ... breads, cheeses, spices, sweets, etc.

For two of us, this was a return trip ... and our group would take the tour again. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend this tour.

What a fun and educational way to learn about NY and enjoy wonderful food! I am a foodie and my husband and I did this for an afternoon treat. It was sooo much food so don't even plan to have lunch. We did the 10:30am tour and it was perfect to cover us for lunch. Our tour guide Cindy was the best! She was hilarious! I highly recommend this trip

This was a highlight for our 4 day whirlwind tour of NY. Kurt was the best guide I've had in all the tours I have done. Non stop information and commentary. We even spotted Lady

Gaga!! Would highly recommend this tour for its history of the Chelsea Market and Meat packing areas and the great food of NY.

Delicious Fun

We could have walked Chelsea Market and the HighLine on our own. But we certainly wouldn't have learned as much interesting information, or had as fun, without Kurt as our guide. (And we probably wouldn't have recognized Lady Gaga when she stepped out of a car and walked across our path.) The food samples were fabulous (we went back to the featured stores to shop), and the history and New York tales Kurt told were fascinating. He's an articulate and highly engaging guide. Thank you so much; money well spent ... and a great value.
