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.

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.

One of the most informative guides and tours that we have been on. I would not miss learning about the history of this area of NYC and this was the best way to do it. We would like to bring our 3 grandchildren on a tour designed for children around 10 years and hope that you have one as good as this one was.

Great experience. Our Group Leader, Kent, made it fun and entertaining. The food was delicious and the history of the Chelsea Market fascinating. After the tour, we went back and bought items to take home.

There were five of us from 35-65. Two of us took the tour before. We got the same tour guide person named Kurk. He made the tour. He is funny, and remembered all of our names. We can't say enough about the amount of food, the quality of food, and the tour guide. We all said, that Kurk made the tour. I hope I am spelling his name correctly. We were not disappointed the second time around. They actually added another course at the end, a pasta course. Kurk or Kirt went above and beyond to make our tour special. We all agreed he made the tour.

This tour was very well organized and presented. The stops were very well chosen in terms of variety. The foods we sampled were varied and most delicious! The guide was knowledgable, friendly, and most welcoming. I would highly recommend this tour for both locals and out of towners. All of our group was most satisfied!

Having grown up in NYC and remembering the lower West Side as an area not worth seeing, it was a nice surprise to tour Chelsea Market, taste a variety of superior foods, and then see Mario's and Morimoto's restaurants, in addition to seeing a West Village townhouse. It helped immensely that our guide, Kurt, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We experienced a complete lunch of varied and fresh, well prepared and delicious foods while making the rounds of many interesting and different stores. We have already recommended this tour to our friends in the New York area and those from here who are going to visit NYC.

As an ex-New Yorker, I can be somewhat jaded about tours since I don't consider myself a "tourist" even though I no longer live in the area. I had always wanted to tour the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District but had never gotten around to doing it. The Foods of NY tour fit my schedule and my wallet nicely so I decided to give it a try. What a wonderful decision! The guide was full of information, enthusiasm and helpful hints. I loved every minute -and every bite- of it!! I highly recommend this tour for anyone- visitor and resident alike.
