Amazing Variety of Food

Our tour with Raheem was one of the highlights of our trip. This was our fourth tour with this company, and I think they are best food tour ever. We learned so much about the Chinatown history and area in addtion to tasting some really delicious food. We loved the Peking Duck and the Tiger Roll. Highly recommended.

7th Foods of NY tour... can't wait for the next

AS it says above, this was my 7th Foods of NY tour... the first for the Chinatown tour. It did not disappoint at all. It is different from the others in that there is less history and more food time, and the food for the most part is sit-down and service... it was explained, and makes sense, that this is what is the best for this part of NY. The food was fabulous from start to finish, and quite a lot. And again, it had us trying restaurants that we most probably would not have done on our own. There is history and explanation of the area, and that was informative and very interesting. We had Rajim as our tour guide, and he has a wonderful way to give the background and facts while always being entertaining and easy to follow. We highly recommend this tour, as well as all of the Foods of NY tours...

Best Value In The City - Foods of New York Tours

We took the FNYTours Chinatown Tour on Saturday April 23rd, 2011. We had previously taken their tour of Greenwich Village (with their star guide, Kurt Upton) during Easter Weekend 2010. The Greenwich experience together with Kurt's brilliant guideship - is what brought us back - and based on another superb performance by Rahim (Chinatown) we know we will return again. FNYTours has provided us with the very best in service, hospitality, quality and behind-the-scenes education - far beyond anything that we could have acquired on our own. We thoroughly enjoyed every single aspect of the Tour - and will continue to recommend, without reservations of any kind, these Tours to family, friends and associates. We took the Greenwich Village Tour in classic, blue-sky, Spring weather. We took the Chinatown Tour in cool, breezy, over-cast, rainy weather. And - our experience dovetailed with the advice of the legendary travel writer, Paul Theroux, who wrote : "Only a fool blames his bad vacation on the rain" - meaning - weather does not erode, in any way, the professional care with which FNYTours conducts their business. Both of our guide's infectuous enthusiasm for their City made our experience most memorable. We already are planning for a return Tour.

Food Tours does it once again

Great guides with lots of interesting historical and cultural information. The foods offered are very tasty and representative of high quality Chinese foods unlike what most of us are accustomed to. Being in this part of Manhattan feels like being in Asia. You'll visit extremely interesting produce,tea,herbal-type shops with lots of' samples along the way. This experience will become a highlight of your Manhattan visit.

Highlight of Trip
Mon, Mar 28, 11   12:00 PM KadyBone Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We greatly enjoyed this tour and how well our guide understood the area and its history. He was also enthusiastic and passionate about his subject, and obviously had built a good rapport with the vendors we visited. While the foods we tasted were not our favorite - our tastes have been throughly Americanized - it was all high quality and all establishments were clean and well kept. This was our third food tour in New York and each has been well worth the time and money.

Chinatown Tour a Good Decision

While I don't usually bother to contribute reviews, this tour was exceptionally worthwhile. The food was very good and of sufficient quantity, Raheem's commentary entertaining and informative, the walking was easy, and the seated dining was comfortable.

Our tour was relaxing and very informative about the Chinese food and culture. I did not know what Peking Duck was and what a treat it was to taste it. We would do it again. Thanks

Tasty Treasure for Three Generations
Mon, Mar 7, 11   12:00 PM franwmajor Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I recently visted NYC with my 79 yr old mother and 24 yr old daughter and thoroughly enjoyed the Chinatown Food and Culture Walking Tour. Our guide, Raheem, was extremely knowledgeable of this unique neighborhood, its rich history, and its wonderful food. He made a good tour GREAT with his enthusiasm, humor, and friendly manner. This was my second NYC food and culture tour, (my first was the Chesea Market Tour) but my mother and daughter had never experienced one before. The food was delectable and the teas delicious.The Peking Duck was the best I have ever eaten! Choosing an outing for three generations of women can be daunting, but the Chinatown Food and Culture Tour was truly a treasure!
