Our guide Curt made our tour a complete success. He was able to manuver our way around Chelsea Market with tremendous grace, charm, knowledge and wit. Curt has the amazing ability to make everyone feel that this tour was arranged just for you. That made this day so special for all of us. We are all still smiling at his brilliant commentary and amazed by his knowledge and energy. The food was amazing and the tour was worth every penny. Thank you

What a hoot!!! Our time with Darryl was fabulous!

Met my friend from Canada on the tour, and loved it from the very first moment. Darryl was the perfect tour guide...was welcoming to everyone, knew all the little interesting tidbits about the locale, and made a group of strangers feel like friends.

He obviously had done this a long time as was evident by his warm relationship with the vendors. I feel this might have given us a 'leg up' on the treats offered. (perhaps not, but sure made us feel that way!).

Just enough mix of info about the market products, the architecture, the locale to keep everyone interested.

Loved going outside to the Highline and looking at Chelsea from a new perspective.

HIGHLY recommended to my friends, and makes me want to go on other walking tours!

Warmest regards to Darryl.........SMOOCH!

Curt was our guide and he was very energetic and gave us a lot of insight into the foods and area. He learned everyone's name within the first 5 minutes and made sure to include each of us into the conversations throughout the tour. The foods were good too, from sweet to savory. Do Not Eat too soon before arriving, you will have plenty of food along the way!! Some of our favorites were the meat samples, fancy grilled cheese sandwiches, donuts and pasta! If you're a foodie, you will enjoy this tour!

Our tour guide Curt was so engaging. He remembered everybody's name and where they came from! Our group was very varied, foreign and American, from all over! I was the only New Yorker. He had lots of interesting information to share, was clever and amusing and generally entertaining. And he happily accommodated everyone's needs.

This is the second Foods of New York tour I have taken. I have enjoyed both the Chelsea Market Tour and the Original Greenwich Village Tour. It is a delightful way to spend time in New York City. Our guide at the Chelsea Market tour was Cindy. She was so much fun and very knowledgeable. I had been to both the market and the Highline previously and really did not know the history until I took the tour with Cindy. We experienced excellent food tastings that would not be possible with just a walk through the market on our own. These tours are fantastic for both out of towers and locals.

We were hosting a daughter of friends in Australia and took her to various places in NYC to show her some of the sights and the history. This tour was outstanding. The guide was energetic, knowledgeable and quickly knew us all by name. His description of the various stores was incredibly entertaining and full of humor. The food samples were delicious and together amounted to a small meal spread over a couple of hours. Our guest loved it. And great value for money

My daughter and I took the train from CT just for the food tour. It was worth it!!! Curt our guide was entertaining and full of knowledge regarding the area and the wide variety of foods we tasted. Everything we had was delicious. I would recommend this to all....locals as well as tourists. Our last tasting was a fabulous chocolate dessert accompanied by prosecco.. Yum..my daughter didn't want it to end. She was the last to leave the table

My wife and I really enjoyed our Tour of the Chelsea Market. Besides tasting a lot of excellent food, we also had a fabulous guide, Darryl, who kept us entertained with historical facts, gossip, name-dropping,and juicy stories! I really enjoyed the tour because I felt it gave me an understanding of how the different neighborhoods of New York have evolved and are still evolving. The transformation of the Meat-packing district with its seamy sex opportunities into the Chelsea Market and High Line is an amazing story filled with the names of the rich and famous! Walking through the Market, we tasted so many fine products of high quality. By the end of the tour, the group of strangers had begun to bond and feel comfortable with each other. We highly recommend this tour!
