Great Chinatown experience

Nobody could fail to be satisfied with the superb quality, quantity and variety of food and liquid sustenance on offer on this tour, which I took at the end of May 2011, on my last day in the city at the end of a short break. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and brought the whole experience to life, with information on the history of Chinese settlement in New York, the development of Chinatown to what it is today and his own personal experiences of the area. He pointed out various venues to explore after the tour - from bars to restaurants to shops - in addition to those we actually enjoyed along the way. I have made careful note of the places we visited and the menu recommendations for my next visit and have no hesitation in recommending the tour most highly to future visitors. Also represents great value for money.

Lives up to the hype

This was my second Foods of New York Tour and it met the high expectations I has as a result of my very enjoyable first tour. I was completely satisfied. Rahim was very enthusiastic, welcoming, outgoing, informative and fun. I ate well and learned a lot about the food we enjoyed, the restaurants in which it was served, and the surrounding neighborhood. This was all infused with insights only a local New Yorker can provide. I would easily participate in a third tour the next time I'm in NYC. I highly recommend this company.

I really like the experience, actually I would love to have more walking. Dont get me wrong, more walking to burn calories as fast as possible. Really, the food was very, very good, portions satisfying and restaurant selections were really nice. I particulary enjoy the Pecking Duck House @ 28 Mott St. And the final dessert a "Tiger' something roll, was splendid!

This is the third of these walks i have done and every time i have come away knowing something new and full! The chinatown was different as you sit down at restaurants and there is a little less of the culture/architecture - but it is all about the food and that surpassed - especially the peking duck, and the dumplings...

I did the Chinatown tour in January. If you love chinese food or you want to know more about it, you have to book it. I had the best Peking Duck ever. The guide knows a lot about food and cooking in general, is very friendly and can't stop talking about it. Another good thing is that afterwards you know to which places you have to come back for lunch or dinner.

Had a great time. Was really nice to see the real china town aside from just canal street. Learning the history was very nice as well. Our guide (Raheem) was friendly and included everyone in the activity, even me, being a single participant. Excellent tour that I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone.
