Bert was great!

Bert was a wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. He appeared genuinely enthusiastic about Chinatown and it's cuisines and you can't help but get wrapped up in his energy. He also has developed relationships with the vendors--making you feel like you were on an insider's tour. Definitely will look for more tours with Bert, and return to these new food gems he introduced us to.

Fun option in NYC food tour possibilities. Very rainy day made location movement challenging but group persevered in good humor. Very pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide.

Best way to experience Chinatown!
Sat, Mar 29  10:30 AM rducnuigeen Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We've always been a little scared to do Chinatown on our own, so this tour was a great, safe introduction for us. Not only did we visit restaurants that we would return to, we also got a list of other recommended restaurants in the neighborhood that we wouldn't hesitate to try. Bruce was incredibly knowledgeable about the food/neighborhood and was a lot of fun as well. We have been on every tour offered and have never been disappointed. We will probably do them all again!! Thanks to Bruce for a wonderful experience.

Really enjoyed Chinatown Tour!

This is the 3rd tour from Foods of New York Tours (previously Greenwich Village and Chelsea/Meatpacking District) that we have done. We loved this one too! Our excellent tour guide, Bert, was extremely informative and knowledgeable of the area and restaurants. We really enjoyed every restaurant/plate of food we sampled and had we had the time on our holiday we would definitely have gone back to try some more dishes. Hopefully, next time we are in New York we will go back to Chinatown. I highly recommend this tour.

Chinatown Highlights

Great culinary and cultural tour of New York's Chinatown. This is an area that we have not visited on our many trips to New York. Our guide, Bert, provided much insight on the area and the food. Well done!

Great tour
Fri, Mar 28  12:00 PM tkherold Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife and I signed up for the food tour and we are very happy we did. Chinatown is a very cool place but a little tough to get around if you don't know where and what you are doing. There are a lot of restaurants and we hit some of the best ones. The peeking duck was great as were the other places we visited. Make sure you come hungry. Our tour guide was Burt and hit was fabulous! Thanks

Our entire group had a blast on this tour. This was the second time for my husband and me, and we loved it just as much this time. Bert is amazing -- very informative, funny and helpful. Great time had by all. Oh, and the food was AMAZING. Love the Peking Duck!!

Fantastic way to spend your time and money
Sat, Mar 22  10:30 AM DaveRastatte Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our tour guide Burt was extremely friendly, highly knowledgeable, humorous and possessed the important skill of effectively communicating information in the proper format and context to the disparate members of our group. Whether he was explaining techniques to a member of our group who was a chef or to our teenage children he was patient, descriptive and informative. The choice of restaurants was eclectic and the menu items were expansive. One of the most impressive skills Burt demonstrated was his experience and feedback concerning menu items and establishments that were not included in the tour. We followed his recommendation to try a meal at another place and found the food and service impeccable. While I imagine other guides are skilled, we highly recommend seeking out Burt as your guide.

Only tour in NYC we took
Fri, Mar 21  12:00 PM johnaamiller Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
First off, great time on the tour. Made more so by the guide, Bert, beenies (cuz it was cold) off to him! Brought my 9 year old son with me and he said mid tour, "this is so great thanks for bringing me mom!" We spent a month in NYC and this was the only tour we went on as there is so much you can tour by yourself, with audio guides and maps, etc. However, Chinatown and it's mysteries and wide array of food choices was calling out for just such a tour. Really recommend.
