Our tour guide Bert was fantastic. The food was amazing (the Duck Skin is unbelievable) and the people were friendly and inviting. Highly recommend this tour.

Great tour on a cold day!

We were visiting New York on a very cold day (less than 15 degrees!) so we chose the Chinatown tour because it included three indoor seatings. It was a wonderful tour. Raheem was our tour guide - so knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious and we were certainly full at the end. The tour was a little over 3 hours; we were probably outdoors a total of 1 hour (between stops and walking around the area) so this was perfect for such cold weather. We also had a small group so it was quite intimate. This is our second FONY tour (we've also done Chelsea Market and Meatpacking) and we will certainly do another one. I highly recommend both this tour and this tour group.

My favorite NY activity

I absolutely love these tours. My husband and I have now done Greenwich Village, Central Village, Nolita and Chinatown. We have loved all of them and we are looking forward to doing the Chelsea Market tour. The guides are great (esp Anny for Nolita!) and Bert who did our Chinatown tour was no exception. We love the mix of history, food, anecdotes and humor. On this tour, the dumplings and the pecking duck were real highlights. The dumplings were delicious (we will definitely return to the restaurant) and the whole experience of the duck - including the full explanation of the process - was fascinating.

One of the best NY Experiences!

I've lived in the NY area my entire life and never did a food tour. We liked our Chinatown tour so much that my daughter and her boyfriend came back the next day to do the Greenwich Village tour, which they also loved. Burt was an extraordinary tour guide -- fun and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic and it was great to learn about the history and culture of Chinatown through the tastes and flavors of the food. Highly recommend this experience!

Fantastic tour and fantastic food

Our guide Raheem was excellent: friendly, knowledgeable, funny and professional. It was a great opportunity to get to see more of Chinatown than we would have on our own, and to get so many recommendations for places to eat - we've been back to two since. We tasted some amazing food on this tour, I'd definitely recommend it.

Not just for foodies (but great for them too)

Great way to learn how to penetrate a neighborhood. We had walked around Chinatown several times before this tour but felt confused and intimidated. Now we know exactly where to go for delightful dim sum, authentic Peking duck, fabulous rice and veggies. And, we now have the confidence to explore places on our own. Our tour guide, Raheem, was enthusiastic, professional, knowledgable. The guidebook alone was worth the price. We liked it. Can you tell?

Wonderful Experience!

This is my fifth tour with Foods of NY. I live locally and love exploring the neighborhoods of NYC with this tour company. I gave tickets to this tour to my mother, brother and sister as Christmas gifts so we can enjoy it together. The Chinatown Food and Culture Walking Tour was surprised me to be one of my favorite tours. We had an excellent guide named Rahim who was both smart and funny. The first two restaurants on tour - Dim Sum Go Go and Peking Duck House were first rate! I will definitely return for a visit.

This China Town walking food tour was absolutely spectacular and the amount of food you taste is incredible! It rained the day of our tour but that didn't stop or slow our group down. The guide was extremely knowledgable and funny at the same time. Great tour and I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it!!!
