Don't beat it to death!

we arrived for the Chinatown food tour the day after Dim Sum Go Go was closed for unexpected, but required renovation. Our guide explained the problem and had made adequate substitutions, which none of us would have even noticed but for the fact that he apologized over and over through out the tour for the delay, substitution etc. etc. Obviously, this situation does not occur very often, but if it comes again, just make a two line explanation and move on. This was our third food tour, and frankly we wouldn't have even noticed the substitution if Rahib had not felt the need to point it out over and over and over. Tons of tasty food, interesting environment, great guide. Thanks!

Every eating/walking tour offered is great - the food on the Chinatown tour was amazing. And the 2 sit-downs were different and welcomed! Looking forward to the planned East Village tour .

This was really one of the highlights of our trip to NYC- a great tour of Chinatown and some fabulous food. We had never had Peking Duck and are now big fans. I would highly recommend this tour to people of any age. Our guide, Rasheem, was super and after the tour gave us some recommendations for where to spend the after noon and where to get a great dinner in Soho. We followed his advice and it was perfect. We'll try another tour on our next visit.

While a lifelong New Yorker and Chinese food aficionado, I learned a great deal about the history of Chinatown and added several new restaurants to my list. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and the whole experience was outstanding.

A great introduction to NYC's Chinatown

This is my fourth Foods of New York tour, and Raheem (our tour guide) is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable member of their team. His facts and figures about Chinatown were wide-ranging, and the foods we tasted with him were outstanding. I'm reasonably sure I wouldn't have found these places myself, and as I travel alone it would have been difficult to try so many different foods. I waddled away from this tour happy. Thanks Raheem and Foods of New York. I'm signing up for the Sushi experience the next time I'm in town.

Chinatown has such an interesting history, and Raheem, our tour guide, was able to give us a definite flavor to the neightborhood. It is also really nice to taste all the different flavors, and to be able to learn how to distinguish fine cuisine!

Take this Tour!

Each time we take one of your tours, this was our third, we think "How can another, be as good?" And, each time we are rewarded with another wonderful experience. Our excellent and jovial guide, Raheim (sp?), offered up historical tidbits on this neighborhood's long immigrant past, and on the Chinese-Americans who now call this area "home", as he navigated us through winding streets in search of Chinese delicacies. Raheim's enthusiasm for the area's excellent food was not misplaced. All the establishments we visited offered DELICIOUS fare. The dim sum, Peking duck, roast pork were outstanding! We are already making plans to head back for dinner....our palate was has been thoroughly enthralled! And, Foods of NY? Well done, we will be back for yet another tour soon!
