We selected this tour from the internet - what a find! This was so informative and fun at the same time...and the food was terrific, especially the REAL Peking Duck.

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!

Unlike some of the other tours, there was a lot of "sit-down" time to enjoy the food. As usual, Raheem knew the culture of the neighborhood and enthusiastically shared his knowledge. I have taken four of your tours and have interest in one or two others but I hope they add more options. Afterall, NYC is a big place!

Summer Day Well Spent in Chinatown
Mon, Aug 24, 09   12:00 PM barbg647 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Exploring Chinatown on a summer's day with a food & cultural guide was a wonderful day well spent! Raheem, our tour guide was very well versed in Chinese culture & food, patient, kind and humorous. He knew the area intricately and was enthusiastic in relaying this information to the group. I recommend this tour - highly educational & entertaining. This is the 2nd neighborhood tour we have experienced with FoodTours in NYC and am looking forward to the next NY neighborhood. By the way, the food was excellent and plentiful!!!

Raheem, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He provided a delicious and highly informative glimpse into one of New York's most vital and fascinating neighborhoods. In addition to the excellent fare, our tour was replete with invaluable facts about history, local culture, and etiquette. I would recommend this to both tourists and locals.

Having been to Chinatown before, it was wonderful to finally understand some of the history of both the place itself and its culinary delights. Our guide Raheem was knowledgeable and personable. Our diverse and friendly group made the tour even more enjoyable. My husband and I have been on 3 other tours with this company and have never had a bad experience.

The only way to go

If it's your first time to New York Chinatown I highly recommend that you take this tour first. As you get off the subway you are bombarded with sites and sounds and a crush of people. There is so much to see it's hard to tell what you should be doing. Our tour guide eased us in to this sensory overload by having us at a quiet table in an incredible dim sum restaurant and introduced us to the pleasures of a culinary experience. We walked through the streets and he gave us a history of the area and reccomendations for eating in other restaurants. Along the way we feasted on duck, pork, and other great foods. Come hunger because you will be full when finished. HAVE FUN.

Enjoyed the information and most of the food.

We enjoyed the tour for the most part. The day was beautiful and walking around was easy. We had never had dim sum before and now that we have, we know we'd never have it again. The insides were good, the gooey, sticky outside were not to our liking. The rest of the food was enjoyed. Lots of good information from the guide, thank you.
