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.

My friend and I have taken 2 other eating tours with Foods of NY before but I think this one was the best so far. The portions were sizable and satisfying. The food tasted amazing( especially the Peking Duck) and our guide Bert was full of historical and gastronomical facts. He clearly loves food and NY. Great day.

This was our second food tour. I went with my husband and our niece. A good time was had by all. Bert, our tour guide was excellent - very informative, interest and fun. We would highly recommend this tour and will definitely be booking another in the near future.

Excellent guide ( one of the best I have had on any tour) good choice of food and very informative. I am a New Yorker who has often been to Chinatown and I still learned a lot and discovered new places to check out. I highly recommend the tour for locals and tourists.

Burt was Awesome!

My husband, daughter, and I took the Chinatown tour and greatly enjoyed the three sit-down tastings and one street tasting. The Peking Duck was fabulous, as well as the dumplings and custard tart. Burt entertained us with stories of gang fighting, gambling, and hidden tunnels. I would definitely recommend this tour to travelers and locals alike.

My sister and bro-in-law from WI and my husband and I (Boston) decided to 'try' this tour as we had all been to NYC quite a few times before but had never ventured into Chinatown ... it felt too 'scary' and confusing. I had always loved the colors, activity and purpose of this community so I decided to book this tour. My sister and her husband had previously taken 2 of your tours and they liked them so I figured ... let 'er rip! Our guide, Raheem was extra-special as he took us ALL over the area with information oozing out of his every pore ... traditions, hidden doorways, history, superlative food knowledge and respect for each of us and the merchants and residents of the area. The 4 of us in our small party never 'really' experienced true chinese cuisine previously and were blown away with Raheem's knowledge and expertise ... you could tell he LOVED this food and all the history behind it. Of course we asked numerous questions and (at least I did) took lots of photos so that i could repeat what I had learned to other NYC traveling friends. Since we came back to Marblehead, a little town on the north shore of Boston, I have been on the computer looking up "the Bloody Angle", "Apotheke", Mott St., Columbus Park (5 Points Park) and every other point of interest Raheem mentioned. My eyes are blurry! One of the things I appreciated so much is the friendly manner Raheem had with the proprietors of the restaurants and shops we visited, especially Richard in the "Beef Jerky" shop. My husband and I had just finished the book "Downtown" by Peter Hamill which made this visit even more intriguing. His book laid out the lower Manhattan beginnings, traditions, cultures, streets and 'peoples' which tied in so well with Raheem's explanations. These histories melded seamlessly. I will indeed recommend your Chinatown tour to all my friends who frequent NYC. I have posted photos on my facebook page hoping that someone will ask me about it ... will I have an earful for them ... ! :)))
