Loved this food tour and Curt or Kurt is the best! Very friendly, learned everyone's name, was very informative. Food was delicious and personal tour of a friends home was the tops. You guys do a great job with your tours and of course the tour guide is the most important part that can make or break a good time, as I have been on many.

This was my first food tour and had a fantastic time!! Did the Chelsea Market and Meat Packing District tour. Curt Upton was our fantastic guide - he didn't stop talking for the entire 3 hour tour! He made a point to connect with each of the 15 people on the tour - he knew all of our names, where we were from, asked what we were doing in the city, offered many suggestions for food, activities, etc. He was not only extremely knowledgeable about the food we were tasting (and the establishments we were tasting in) but also about the building and the neighborhood. Extremely informative, very delicious, entertaining. We had 2 gluten intolerant people on the tour and he went well out of his way to ensure that they had equivalent items to taste when needed. Recommend this tour, especially if you can have it with Curt. After the tour you will definitely want to revisit many of the places to make purchases! Really enjoyed our walk on the High Line as well - had always wanted to see it - beautiful.

This tour was fantastic and one of the highlights of our stay in NY. I had taken my 18 year old daughter with me who is a "foodie" and we both agree that it was the best part of our trip! Curt was a wonderful guide-I can't say enough good things about him and his knowledge of Chelsea, food and his love of people. If we hadn't taken this tour we would never have gone to this market. We even went back several days in a row to purchase food items to take back as gifts-the 10% discount we were entitled to from the tour really helped. Please pass along our thanks to Curt for a terrific afternoon!

Darryl, our guide was knowledgeable about the area, he was very friendly and approachable, and he was awesome at remembering everyone's name! He made a point to engage each of us when relating the area history. It was a terrific tour, and we will definitely do another tour on our next visit to the city!

This was a great tour. Our guide Darrell was wonderful, informative and full of energy. The tastings were delicious and filling. Its a great way to explore the market and try things you may not normally just walking through. We are now planning our next tour of Greenwich Village - can't wait!

I can always expect a great time on one of FoNYT and this Chelsea Mkt. tour was no exception! The tour guide Curt was so informative and very entertaining. The food was delicious and more than enough for a diversified yummy lunch. Can't wait to take my next Food Of New York Tour. It's the best!!!!!!
