A Fascinating Look at a Little Known Culture

Been coming to Chinatown since I was little, initially with my parents. It was only to eat a few selected restaurants. This tour helped to enlighten me about more of the cultural and hidden aspects of this community. The food was good especially the Peking duck. Would like to see a tour for the hard core eaters like myself. Tripe and chicken feet dim sum are always on my menu. I would also like a more in depth cultural experience.

The tour exceeded our expectations. The food was very varied, and very good. No feeling that we got anything but their best. It also was Lunar New Year, and the atmosphere in Chinatown was joyous.

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.
