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!

Thank you for the informative tour. I enjoyed the history of Chinatown and exploring the food eateries there. My next trip will have to include another one of your food tours. 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

Raheem is the best Guide

Our group had a great time visiting Chinatown under the guidance of Raheem. His insight into the gang wars of five points or the process for pekin duck were great. Would definitely go again. A special thanks to the Food Tours Gang and Zerve for helping out a tourist who cannot follow the days of the week. Your accommodation of our group was great.

Our entire group had a blast on this tour. This was the second time for my husband and me, and we loved it just as much this time. Bert is amazing -- very informative, funny and helpful. Great time had by all. Oh, and the food was AMAZING. Love the Peking Duck!!

Great tour on a cold day!
Fri, Jan 24  12:00 PM penlin Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
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.
