Robin was the BEST tour guide! Loved all 3 hours of this tour. Great tastings, great history. I've been to NYC countless times and didn't even know all of this area existed in its richness of foods and wine stores and cool history.

As a frequent visitor of the NYC area, this was my first food tour.....and I am SOLD! It was such a great experience to be a part of the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District Food Tour. I highly recommend it and will encourage all my friends & associates to make it a part of their NYC visit. Thank you Darrell for making the time enjoyable. Your knowledge of the area was fantastic and you made the tour a blast!

We took the food walking tour of the Chelsea market. Darryl was our guide and he was fantastic. I have also done the walking tour of Greenwich Village. Both were outstanding and I can't decide which I like best. I will definitely try the other tours when I'm in New York. It is a highlight of our vacation!

Excellent Tour of Chelsea Market

This tour is the way to explore Chelsea Market. Curt was fun and very knowledgeable about the food in the market (not just what we tasted). The portions for the tasting were very generous, and everyone in our group was full before the end of the tour. The High Line portion of the tour is brief but that was fine with us because we have been on it previously. We actually ended our tour on a hotel rooftop terrace after Curt got permission from the security guard...a nice bonus! Allow time at the end of the tour to go back and actually buy food at the shops you visit. The tour is too fast paced to purchase as you visit it with the tour group.

I can't tell enough people about how enjoyable this tour was for our group of friends. Some of our group lived locally and others visiting from out of town. Curt our tour guide was incredible - we wanted to spend the entire day with him! Fun tastings, relaxing and very educational.

We were 6 women - ages 21 - 58, from PA, NM, Florida gathering to celebrate milestone birthdays. Darryl was one of the best tour guides I've had (& over the years I've been on many many tours). He was funny, knowledgeable, and somehow learned everyone's names within moments. Loved the variety of food we tasted and were also amazed at how much we got to eat. Definitely lunch for us all! The 3 main birthday girls got big cupcakes with candles & Darryl's rendition of "Happy Birthday" making Elani's even more special. Tasting everything from beef tartar to red velvet cupcakes to pulled pork made for a wonderfully varied culinary experience. We will definitely be back for full meals at some of the places next time we're in NYC. We also plan to schedule a different tour with this company, and would love to request Darryl if possible. We all HIGHLY recommend Foods of NY as a great way to get to know an area in the city. Thank you!!!
