With more than a bite at most places we visited, it felt like non-stop eating

Terrific Tour

Our guide, Curt, was terrific - he had endless energy and lots of information about food and the city, with some gossip and verbal recipes thrown in for good measure.

He was fantastic at remembering everyone's name, too - don't know how he did it, but it worked.

It was a great tour, especially the hotel roof it ended up on at the end - we stayed there awhile afterward for a drink, and it was lovely and cool on a very hot day in the city.

The only negative is that Curt was not aware that I'm veggie.

When we were deciding which tour to book (this will be our third FONY tour), the person I spoke with said that, even though it was the meatpacking tour, they would arrange for some veggie alternatives for me.

Curt was able to do that after I mentioned it, but it would have been more considerate for the shops if they'd known ahead of time.

Other than that, like the previous tours, it was informative, the perfect length, with a great guide and plenty of food to sample.

Great experience!

We took the Chelsea Market/Highline/Meat packing district tour and it was a lot of fun! Kurt was our tour guide and was very entertaining and informative. We were a group of 5 ladies and this was a great way to kick off our NYC trip and learn about some of the history in this area. The food was great and we would definitely do another food tour as part of our next trip.

I would do this tour again, and I would love to go on another tour if Daryl was the tour leader; he was just awesome.

He made the entire day even more enjoyable.

A feast for the eyes, ears and tastebuds

Excellent balance between history, humor and tastings. The Chelsea Market area and the Meatpacking district are beautiful; an incredible transformation over the past two decades. There is so much to see and take in. The food tastings were well selected, delicious and plentiful. It was clear that our tour guide Cindy was passionate about New York, and food. She came out with some great one-liners that kept us entertained, and she was very warm and caring with the group. We felt well taken care of as Cindy always made sure to check in with the group to see how we were feeling and if we needed anything. When back in NYC, we will look into another one of their tours!

Darrell made the experience terrific

My two adult daughters and I loved the tour and I booked with some doubts initially. Darrell was so entertaining and the perfect guide with a mix of humor and information. He memorized and used everyone's name throughout the whole tour which really held the audience's attention...quite a feat! He had us in the palm of his hand. Quite cleverly he allowed us to sample and then gave us a few minutes to shop but kept us moving throughout. He was very considerate of everyone and could not have improved on anything. Thanks to him, we booked another tour for the next day in Greenwich Village. Kudos to Darrell...and, I might add, my daughters are a tough audience.

Great tour

Curt was a very entertaining and informative guide. He promised he would talk for the three hours, and he did, but it was most enjoyable. We learnt a lot about the area, it's history and development and experienced a varied range of foods to taste.
