China Town with Raheem is AMAZING!

We have been on every FONY tour and this one is the crown jewel. We felt like we were in China, not NYC. The food was delicious as was the tour of the area. Raheem is an awesome guide - fun, witty, caring and full of knowledge. We are looking forward to the new Brooklyn tour. Keep up the good work, Todd and staff!

My wife and I took the Chinatown tour with Bert June 27th, and had a wonderful time. We were impressed with his knowledge of the area and culture, and completely enjoyed the food tastings. Bert was enthusiastic and made the day fun for everyone, we felt like we were being guided by a long time friend. We have now gained the confidence we were looking for to further explore Chinatown on our own, and thank Bert and Foods of NY Tours for their excellent service. If you have the opportunity, don't think twice take the tour!

really interesting tour with incredible food!

We choose to do this tour as wanted to eat out in china town but had no idea where to start. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable, he obviously ate at the places he went to personally and so could give personal reviews. the restaurants we went to were fabulous all the food was amazing and varied. The walk around Chinatown between the restaurants was interesting and our guide filled us in on the history of the area. the group size was small so we could easily ask questions and didn't feel rushed. the only thing i would say is to leave plenty of time to find the meeting point as Chinatown for us was a bit of a maze! And very busy and hectic so we were running a bit late. i would thoroughly recommend this tour!

Yummy, Fun, and interactive!

Since this was our first time in New York, we wanted to see Chinatown. I heard the area had many great authentic cuisine, and who doesn't love to eat! Our tour stated at Dim Sum Go Go and sampled some of the dumplings. Yum! Our tour guide gave us some interesting background on how the food originated to what we are enjoying today. Then he took us around Chinatown and pointed out history of the area. The walking tour is at a casual pace, but it does work up a little appetite for your next stop. All in all, I would do this again.

Of all the Foods of New York tours, this was our favorite. Great tour guide and excellent food. Our guide pointed us to a wonderful foot/back massage parlor afterwards--a real treat. Highly recommend.

Fun in Chinatown

Raheem was very knowledgeable and personable. It was really great to experience dim sum, as we have never gone to a dim sum restaurant and were unaware of what it involved. Also learning about Peking Duck was a lot of fun and something we had sever had before. The Malaysian restaurant was also interesting and somewhere we might try again in the future. The dessert was amazing and completely unexpected. We have gone on all of your food tours and always bring the booklets with us when we go to New York so we can visit some of our favorite finds.

Very educational tour with a well informed guide

Although this tour is a bit more expensive than other food tours, it is well worth it. We had food served to us in 3 different restaurants while we were seated. Most delicious was the dim sum experience and the Peking duck experience. We will go back to those restaurants and the others that are recommended in the program brochure handed out to us. The 3rd restaurant was most educational -- a Malaysian restaurant. We will go back to try new things. Our "dessert" was a stand-up affair with samples passed on a tray. The guide's knowledge as we walked the streets and stopped by shops was outstanding.

Very enjoyable, tasty and informative

This was a very enjoyable experience. The food was wonderful. The tour host was very pleasant and knowledgeable. It was well paced with adequate stops. I selected this tour specifically because of the three sit-down meals. They didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this tour to both tourists and locals. You just don't get this experience by driving through Chinatown on a tour bus!
