My sisters and I shared a terrific three hours with our group lead by the entertaining and interesting guide, Darryl. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the food was delicious! The tour was well-planned and we were so well taken care of. It was a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Thank you, thank you. Maria

Daryl, our guide, was incredibly enthusiastic about everything! I wish there was more food on the tour. Chelsea market is fantastic. We got some more food after the tour in the market. There is so much to choose from...would take a few times to figure out which restaurant is your favorite. If you are wanting some great info on the market, a little sampling...then this tour is a great place to start discovering.

A good look at two of NYC's newer attractions, Chelsea Market and The High Line. And tour guide Curt made it double the pleasure. He was very funny, very social, well organized and very knowledgeable. Brought the 20 or so of us all together so we felt like friends on an outing. We got more than full measure for the price, great fun and we saw and learned a lot that we, even as NYC dwellers of 50-plus years, had never seen or heard.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was the most informative and enjoyable three hours of our holiday! To be recommended to everyone, young and older. The guide was a pleasure to spend time with and impressed us by

addressing everyone by their first name even though he had only just met us. What a great tour, thank you!

Chelsea Market Tour and Meatpacking district.

First trip to New York City and wanted more of an insiders guide and more depth than just walking through. We met Darrell, our actor/guide on time and we enjoyed his technique to make the group cohesive by saying our names as he made points. We had all of the taste treats promised, a deluxe bathroom break and lots of area info.

We enjoyed Darrell's tour very much but wish we had gone on a weekday and not a Sunday due to the crowds inside the market. It would also be great if the tour used those wireless microphones, which would also ensure we could all hear all the time. Darrell was not at fault as the crowds moving around us were just loud moving past us.

We asked ourselves if we could have walked through the market on our own and discovered what was good about the products we sampled and the answer was no. We would not have even known to try these foods. We got recommendations on local places to eat and enjoyed going up on the Highline park.

The last restaurant where we sat and had a small plate of pasta and bolognese sauce was just ok. They had an opportunity to keep us with a wow...we all had only had samples all afternoon...but our lackluster pasta was only half eaten by the lady from Italy and her daughter. Overall enjoyable and would take another.

Our Guide was very informative and had a great personality. Amazed how he could remember 15 names throughout the tour! He made everyone feel welcome and was able to answer all questions. The food was good and there was plenty. Only complaint is that it ended 20 minutes short of the 3 hours.

Cindy- our guide, was the best! Super entertaining and knowledgeable. She gave us so much history of the area while we got to eat amazing food. I will definitely book again because I would like to try the Greenwhich Village tour.

My husband and I, visiting from Australia, found this tour to be a great introduction to the food on offer at the fabulous Chelsea market. Daryl was highly entertaining and informative and made sure we did not did not go hungry. Fortunately we had been prewarned not to eat lunch before the tour! We wished we had found the market earlier in our stay because there is so much great food on offer, however we were able to spend the following day there, sampling more of the produce and walking the highline. If you like food and are looking for a fun afternoon while eating then I would highly recommend this tour! A definite highlight of our stay in New York!
