My husband, daughter, and I had a wonderful time. Darryl was amazing; knowledgeable, funny, interacting, engaging. Tastings were plentiful and varied. There was more than enough food. THe only drawback to our tour was that there were 15 people which meant that there was sometimes not enough seating to accomadate the whole group.

My husband and I discovered Foods of NY Tours on TripAdvisor where it was highly rated. We chose to take the Chelsea Market tour during a weekend trip to NYC and were not disappointed. Our tour guide, Cindy, was great -- enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and fun! Someday I hope to return for other Foods of NY Tours.

This was recommended by a friend as a must do in NY. For this reason top of our list and exceeded our expectations. Kurt the guide very knowledgable and kept tabs on everyone - a challenge in the busy markets. Plenty to eat and a well spent afternoon. Roger & Tracey Adelaide Australia

There are many opportunities for food tasting tours no matter where you travel. They have never interested me before, but one of our group really wanted to do this one because of a recommendation from a friend. I did enjoy the food tasting, but what made this tour especially interesting for me was the amount of background information provided by the group leader. Darryl was full of personality and great stories. It is a bit long (3 hrs), but definitely worth the price paid. It is not a tour I would ever repeat due to my own personal interests and that does not reflect on the quality of the tour itself. It is something a bit different to do for a break from the traditional NYC tourist activities.

We enjoyed our tour leader, Bob, very much. He was very knowledgable and made the tour fun. We learned a lot and ate some great food. It was a very good way to get some NY history and have fun at the same time.

Took the Chelsea market tour on Friday with Darrell. Great guide - lots of fun! Darrell kept us moving and the 3 hours flew by! Darrell kept us entertained, and gave us good 'info' about the area. This is the third tour we've done (Original & Chinatown) and it did not disappoint! Highly recommend!!! Thanks Darrell!

Our guide Curt was terrific. Funny, enthusiastic, energetic, and a wealth of knowledge.

We followed him around like a bunch of puppies and left the tour three hours later with our stomachs stuffed with great food and our heads stuffed with knowledge and jokes.

Highly recommended.
