Bert, our tour guide did a fantastic job describing Chinatown sites and was very informative about the restaurants and the food being served. This tour was well worth the money and we would highly recommend it.

Tour Guide (Bert) excellent (knowledgeable and interesting). Tour price too high considering food served.

Love to eat? Love to learn? This is for you!

I hate exercise and love to eat. My brain is always going 90 to nothing. Finding a touring activity that meets both my needs and wants is tough. This tour did it. We walked enough to keep the blood flowing, stopped often and long enough to enjoy great food, and learned enough about the food and the surroundings to agree, "Hey, that was fun and interesting!" This isn't a "killing time" activity, it is a "making time come alive" activity.

Raheem (think I've spelled correctly) made this tour a delight. Of course, he had three fantastic first-rate restaurants to help him, as well as a batch of warm custard tarts for dessert from a Chinese bakery! But, he was a passionate advocate for the cuisines of China and a champion of their culture and their NYC community. What made the tour even more vital,was the fact that Raheem comes from a Muslim background and so was able to inject a true multicultural spirit into our walk and our dining. Both the tour and the guide should be considered local treasures. I recommend it to anyone who loves Chinese food, and BTW the Peking Duck was superlative, and I come from Vancouver, Canada, where good Mandarin chefs litter our Asian dining scene. Bravo!

We did an amazing walking tour of chinatown with Rahim. He was extremely knowledgeable and fun. He told us the history of the area, it's beginnings and how it has changed over the years. We loved the three restaurants he took us to. He was quite attuned to the chinese culture and we learned lots of fun facts in addition to enjoying some really delicious food. I definitely would recommend it, especially with Rahim as your guide!

Our group was composed of local New Yorkers and out of town guests. We all thought it was a great tour , and a great eating experience. The three hours went by so fast. It surpassed what we were expecting. Our guide, Bert, made everyone comfortable and presented lots of interesting facts. All of us plan to take another tour with the company.

We loved the Chinatown tour -- our daughter & son-in-law, who live in NYC, had taken it a few months ago and raved about it. We agree. Our tour guide, Bert, was personable, knowledgeable about both the food and the culture/history of Chinatown and the city, and kept us on schedule without rushing. The food was terrific and it was fun and enlightening. Highly recommended!

good tour but wish there was more variety of food.

I've been on 2 other tours with this company and found both of them to be much better. The guide was fine. The Nice to have 3 restaurants that we were able to come in to and sit to eat ! food was delicious, but it would have been nicer if there had been more food tastings. There was only a dumpling restaurnat (delicious) and a roast duck restaurant (delicious) an eggplant and fried rice stop (delicious) and an tiny ice tea at the end. It was filling, but I'd rather have had a little less at each stop and a few more stops. How about some sample at the Chinese Ice Cream Shop, and an egg roll ? Will go on the LIttle Italy tour next time I am in town and hope that the samplings are more abundant. If this is your first tour, I'd suggest going on the Greenwich Village sampling!
