A great combination of food, culture and history

Although I have been to New York many times, this tour took me to a fascinating part of town that I had never seen. The tour guide was enthusiastic and well-informed, and I felt that I learned a lot about Chinese food and Chinese culture as well as the history of the area. I felt very comfortable being on the tour by myself. I would highly recommend the tour, and I plan to take some of the other tours when I am there next.

This is my 4th walking tour of NY thru Foods Of New York. And it was the best. Lots of good walking, delicious foods, we learned not only about Chinatown in NY, but also about Chinese culture. The guide, Rahim, was kind and patient and acted like we were the only people in the world. He was just great. I highly recommend this tour. And the food, by the way, was delicious and quite filling!

This tour was a real highlight of my trip to NY and resulted in me making some new suggestions to locals! I also really liked the fact that the tour guide made such great recommendations outside of the places included in the tour. Thanks!

This tour was a little different than the others offered by this tour group (I have done all of them) in that some of the tastings are done in a sit down atmosphere instead of the usual eat and go on the street. But that was necessary because the foods tasted (dumplings and Peking duck) were not well suited to eating with your hands. Other tastings were done on the street. It was a great tour with a great tour guide. Well worth the money and time. I learned a lot and had a great meal.

This tour is a must. The highlight of my trip

I can't say enough wonderful things about my food tour of Chinatown. First, the food was amazing and I am craving peking duck and dumplings. Raheem was a terrific tour guide. He took us to outstanding restaurants and gave us interesting history of the Chinatown area. It gave me a new understanding of the area and appreciation for the multicultural groups that live and work there. I can't wait until my next trip to Chinatown with my family so I can introduce them to the Chinese food. I would highly recommend this tour to get an insiders look at Chinatown and a feel for its' people, cultures , foods and history. Make sure you end your tour with a back massage and a bubble tea. Unbelievable.

Five for Five----first one to do all

I have the honour of being the first person to do all FIVE foodsofny tours ( do I get a frequent flyer card).....I have to say that the Chinatown tour was very very good. Rahmen outdid himself with knowledge and enthusiasium. The food was amazing. Might add a sweet in between all of the savoury choices though. Might also recommend that you consider a bit more of a walk between the Dim Sum place and the Peking Duck Restaurant......I can't recommend this trip too highly and I can't wait for your SIXTH experience-----Awesome job

Yummy, Fun, and interactive!

Since this was our first time in New York, we wanted to see Chinatown. I heard the area had many great authentic cuisine, and who doesn't love to eat! Our tour stated at Dim Sum Go Go and sampled some of the dumplings. Yum! Our tour guide gave us some interesting background on how the food originated to what we are enjoying today. Then he took us around Chinatown and pointed out history of the area. The walking tour is at a casual pace, but it does work up a little appetite for your next stop. All in all, I would do this again.
