Very knowledgeable guide who had lots of facts about the history and culture of the largest Chinatown in the US, maybe the world. I've lived here many years but never knew so much interesting info about this rich cultural enclave. Food was delicious--now I know where to eat!

Wonderful, Educational and Tasty!

We have taken several other trips with Foods of NY and they have all been wonderful but this one with Bert was just delightful. He had many educational additions as well as helpful tips which were presented in a professional and humorous manner. The restaurants and areas we visited were located in parts of Chinatown that are not on the usual beaten path. Can't wait to go back to eat and visit the shops again.. We also happened to run into Bert in Greenwich Village the next day while we were browsing around and he gave us a few hints for that area as well. We will have to do that trip for the next visit!!

Fabulous Experience in Chinatown!

Our Chinatown food & cultural tour was great for a number of reasons. Bert, our guide, was well informed & familiar with Chinatown, quite funny in a natural manner, and engaging. We were a group of 7 women in our family ranging in age from 30 - 68, and we all loved the tour. We have been on all of the Foods of New York tours, and this one was the same quality, if not better than some of the others. We enjoyed sitting down at the restaurants to eat, and seeing a side of Chinatown that we had never seen before. Well done & we would all highly recommend this tour! Sheri

Some of us were locals. Some of us were from out of state. ALL really enjoyed this tour. Bert has extensive knowledge of the area and we loved all of his neighborhood vignettes. The food sampling was perfect. Yes, there was lots of food and the variety was impressive - and definitely keep in mind to 'come hungry'. We also greatly appreciated the map hand out and suggestions for future places that might also be yummy and fun. I recommend it enthusiastically.

REAL Chinese food, presented well

I've never been fond of Chinese food but that's because I hadn't tasted REAL Chinese food. On this tour, I enjoyed each taste--or dish-let--at each stop we made. Our guide, Raheem, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and conducted the tour even in the bitter, windy, cold. We all went away quite happy!

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 ... ! :)))

Excellent food tour

I truly enjoyed the Chinatown Food Tour.The tour was a Christmas gift from our daughter and her fiance. Our son and his wife and their son also joined us. The foods chosen were delicious, very cultural and presented beautifully. Our tour guide, Bert, was exceptional, in that he provided us with interesting commentary, was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about Chinatown and its people. He truly enjoys his profession and makes sure he includes everyone in the tour with individual attention. We had about 17 people joining us, just the right amount for seating at the various locations. I especially enjoyed the Peking Duck, and also appreciated his explanation of its preparation. I am sure my family and I will avail ourselves of the other tours you have to offer. I do believe that Bert made the tour most enjoyable for all of us.
