I believe his name was Shahem? We had a great time - the food was incredible especially the dim sum and the peking duck. Our guide was incredibly smart and informative. I would like to purchase a gift certificate for the Greenich food tour. Would that be possible? We have friends that live there and I wanted to send them this as a gift for letting us stay with them. Thanks Sara Beveridge

I really enjoyed my tour. The 3 hours flew by and everyone on our tour was stuffed with the delicious tastings by the end. I liked that there was a lot of history woven through the tastings and the little hand-out with a map was a nice bonus. I also liked the tips on Chinese table etiiquette. This tour made me want to try some others

Every eating/walking tour offered is great - the food on the Chinatown tour was amazing. And the 2 sit-downs were different and welcomed! Looking forward to the planned East Village tour .

Dim Sum Wow!

This tour was a gourmet sensation. I loved Dim Sum Go Go so much that I took a group of friends back to dine there a couple of days later and I was quite the culinary expert as a result of the tour. They are raving about it and now our NY friends are taking their friends to dine there. My husband says it was our best meal in the 16 days we spent in NY. So it's great for the local businesses. The Peking Duck was to die for and I really enjoyed hearing about the history of the area and visiting the health shop and tea shop. I've done the Greenwich Village tour twice so I was hoping this one lived up to expectations - and it exceeded them. Our guide was lovely too. Definitely a must do when you're in NY.

A great introduction to NYC's Chinatown
Mon, Nov 16, 09   12:00 PM hmhegedus Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
This is my fourth Foods of New York tour, and Raheem (our tour guide) is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable member of their team. His facts and figures about Chinatown were wide-ranging, and the foods we tasted with him were outstanding. I'm reasonably sure I wouldn't have found these places myself, and as I travel alone it would have been difficult to try so many different foods. I waddled away from this tour happy. Thanks Raheem and Foods of New York. I'm signing up for the Sushi experience the next time I'm in town.

Chinatown has such an interesting history, and Raheem, our tour guide, was able to give us a definite flavor to the neightborhood. It is also really nice to taste all the different flavors, and to be able to learn how to distinguish fine cuisine!

Well-spent time
Mon, Aug 31, 09   12:00 PM cenglert Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
Unlike some of the other tours, there was a lot of "sit-down" time to enjoy the food. As usual, Raheem knew the culture of the neighborhood and enthusiastically shared his knowledge. I have taken four of your tours and have interest in one or two others but I hope they add more options. Afterall, NYC is a big place!
