We try to come every year in October to NYC. The Foods of New York Tours have really added to our experience and we always find a new, exciting restaurant to try as a result . Our tour guide was so easy and friendly with the group, as well as informative. She was helpfpul with visiting tips also.

We will come back!

All "Foodies" Will Love This Tour

Kurt was fantastic -- soooo knowledgeable and entertaining!

Loved to see how someone had the vision to make something out of nothing -- Chelsea Market Place is a true treasure --- and to eat and "graze" all along the tour was so much fun.

Would recommend it to all our friends --- we did many of the "touristy" NY sites -- but this would rank right up there on top for us.

Fabulous experience

I am a tour guide and generally overly critical of tours. This tour was top notch. The tour started on time. The leader was prepared and excited to do the tour. He was very warm and professional. He introduced the group to each other and knew our names right away. The visits to various locations were most informative and food was fabulous. I took this same tour two years ago and wondered if I would like it as well as the first time and it did not disappoint. Don't be on the fence with this tour, sign up.

What a Winner!

Off we went early one Saturday morning, a group of women friends, to explore an interesting section of New York. Our train ride was filled with questions of what we would see and eat! Many did not have breakfast and wanted to get started on our adventure as soon as possible. After a quick taxi ride, we were amazed at the Chelsea Market and all the beautiful food items inside. We quickly met Bob our tour guide who told us not to eat before the tour! After an explanation of the history and current situation at the Chelsea Market, we had a chance to ask questions as we began to explore. It seemed we were constantly being offered delicious food options from cookies to delicious soups, as we strolled through the market marveling at the sights. As the tour continued many of us said we could not eat another thing, to being offered nice cold gelato. Who could say no? The trip up to the High Line was an opportunity to see the street life below. To end at a wonderful restaurant to enjoy homemade pasta with oxtail ragu was a terrific ending to a wonderful day. My friends made me feel like a hero, they want to know when we can come back. Thank you for offering such a terrific experience.

This tour was better than expected. Not only do you get a good tour and history of Chelsea Mkt., but we also enjoyed seeing the Meatpacking District and even the new Highline "park" area. The food was all very good and there was a lot of it. In fact we were almost too full! There were some locals on our tour and they all thought it was great too. Went back to the Mkt to shop and also to one of the other restaurants for dinner later. Highly recommend it!

What a great afternoon we had with Darrell on Saturday, Sept 12. From the first encounter with the tour leader to the last stop at the top of the hotel, we had such a fun and interesting and informative time. We may not come back together, but as individuals, I'm sure we will be there again with our friends and/or other family members. Thanks for the memories.

A Great Tour

I moved out of Manhattan 20 years ago and this was a great way to see all the changes that have come to the meatpacking district. The guide knew all about the area, both old and new. The food was fantastic.
