Really great

Bob was our guide. Being from the neighborhood, he was knew about the whole area. The tour of the Chelsea Market was extremely interesting as was the walking tour of the High Line and Chelsea area. It was so good to get away from the hub-bub of midtown and see a place with a more low-key lifestyle

We just had a great time!

We're originally from New York, moved to the other side (New Jersey), and wanted a fun day trip to the city. I LOVED it, our guide was fantastic, she knows her stuff and presented it with knowledge and humor! What a great way to spend an afternoon - I recommended it to EVERYONE!

This tour was both informative and delicious -- and Daryl made it tremendous fun. He went above-and-beyond to make sure we were all pleased and was a marvelous communicator. We ended up extremely pleased with the tour. My only wish is that he would do other tours of other areas so we could be under his care again in getting to know another part of the City.

The highlight of our tour was by far our tour guide who made the experience FUN as

well as interesting. I have taken this tour before and were treating two other family members. It was even better than before thanks to the tour guide. I tried to sign up for another tour with her but was disappointed to find I couldn't be guaranteed who the tour guide would be. It was GREAT!

This was our second food tour. Did Greenwich Village on our last visit and enjoyed it so much we were determined to try a different tour this year and brought along five friends. Everyone thanked us for our recommendation. The tour guide was great and the food was fantastic. Plenty for lunch. Hope to do the other Greenwich Village tour on our next NYC visit. Thanks for providing such an interesting, informative and tasty tourist attraction.

Fabulous tour
Fri, Nov 20, 09   11:00 AM Rtorrey Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I have to admit I was sceptical of a "tour" when my wife suggested it and especially of the "meatpacking district" that I remembered as an area that you didn't even drive thru in the old days and now to do a walking tour was incomprehensible especially when rain was predicted!!! Wow was I wrong.

This was the absolute highlight of our trip (except for seeing "Memphis"!!) The guide was full of personality and just plain fun . We got a great history lesson of the area and the "samples" of the food places was incredible in addition to going thru some fabulous restaurants. Toward the end I was hoping that she would not stop at another food place as I was so full of fabulous foods from all over the country. This is a tour for all ages above 21. We will certainly do this type of tour from your company next time we are in town. Thanks so much for the professionalism and great guidance.

We loved our guide, Curt. He was fun and funny. The food was great! I learned and became familiar with this area and more than I expected. This is fun for all.

This was a delightful tour. My tour enjoyed learning about the history of the building and this entire area of NYC which we had never visited before on previous visits. The tasting part of the tour was delightful as well. The "famous" bisquits that we tasted at Sarabeth's were the only part of the tour that was disappointing. We're from the South, and we know our bisquits. These were NOT good bisquits. The lobster bisque from The Lobster Place was outstanding, however, and our tour guide, Darrell, was worth the price of the tour.

Kurt was a terrific guide. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Great sense of humor. Made a real effort to learn everyone's names.
