We enjoyed the food and the guide Bert was superb. Will do it again sometime in the future... We suggest in the future links to local hotel will benefit those that don't want to wake up early in the morning and take a bus to the meeting place.

Excellent Chinatown Tour

Have taken all of the tours except NoHo ( will do it on our next trip to NYC) and all have been great--this one is no exception. Having lived in the area for a number of years Bert (sp.) was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, the cuisine and some of the "nooks and crannies" we would never know or learn about. Highly recommend this tour.

Really great tour!

We had been on the company's Greenwich Village walking tour in the past and since we had friends in town for Thanksgiving we thought we'd try it again. To our (initial) disappointment there wasn't availability on any of the tours apart from the China Town walk, which we were actually in two minds about because we aren't avid fans of this type of cuisine. In the end we trusted the reviews we read on Zerve and booked it and we're really glad we did. Burt was an extremely engaging tour guide with a clear passion for his job which made the tour tremendously enjoyable. There wasn't a lot of walking (the entire tour takes place below Canal Street) but the food was excellent and we learned a lot about the history of the local area. Two thumbs up!

This is a fun tour not only for tourists, but local foodies. The restaurant selections were excellent (especially the Peking Duck House) and our guide (Bert) was extremely friendly, enthusiastic, and well-informed. I'll be suggesting this tour to my friends, no doubt.

Perfect Food/Culture Introduction to Chinatown

We had always avoided venturing into Chinatown due to our lack of knowledge of the area, the food, and the culture. Fortunately, we took this tour and experienced the vast knowledge of our guide, Bert, who had resided in Chinatown for several years and frequently patronizes the local restaurants there. The combination of sit-down food tastings and Bert's explanations of the food and history of this area made this the ideal tour for us. Anyone who might be a little nervous about striking out alone in this area should start with this top-notch tour.

We did not have high expectations before the tour but we really enjoyed ourselves. I am sure that we will take another one in the future

I believe the quide was a gentleman by the name of Rahim though I may be mistaken. The quality of the tour is really a result of his knowledge and personality. He did an outstanding job. I hope this communication gets to him because he is the reason I would recommend the tour. Ken Margraf and Margaret Crowell.
