This was a very enjoyable experience. The food was wonderful. The tour host was very pleasant and knowledgeable. It was well paced with adequate stops. I selected this tour specifically because of the three sit-down meals. They didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this tour to both tourists and locals. You just don't get this experience by driving through Chinatown on a tour bus!

Bert, our friendly, upbeat, VERY knowledgeable tour guide set the tone for a wonderful food, cultural experience in Chinatown.I could have eaten dumplings all day, but then would have missed my first time eating Peking Duck. Enjoyed learning the process of preparing the dish. More time there rather than the Malaysian restaurant would have been preferred. Dessert delicious. Loved learning about the history of Chinatown. My group of 4 friends agreed we would do this tour again.

We met Bert at the dim sum restaurant. He guided us through the meals and the streets of Chinatown, taking us into places we never would have found (or entered) on our own, and telling us the history of Chinatown. It was obvious that he both knew and loved the area, the people, the culture, and especially the food. We enjoyed delicious dim sum (I went back the next day with friends to eat there again), superbly prepared and presented peking duck, a marvelous Malaysian dish (I lived in Malaysia many years ago and can attest to the authenticity of the food there), and even a delicious dessert (Asian sweets are not generally acceptable to American palates). I liked the filling, but the crust was absolutely to die for. Believe me, you WILL get enough to eat on this tour! We also visited a tea and Chinese medicine store -- we got food for the stomach and food for the soul. Thank you, Bert, for being such an excellent guide!

A pleasantly full tummy, lots of history and behind the scenes visiting tips made this walking tour a great success. City landmarks, local food, shops and movie references. I heartily recommend spending the time and money.

My friends and i thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Raheem, was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. He made every effort to make sure all of us on the tour were comfortable and had a good time. The food was very good and was plentiful and our guide gave mouthwatering descriptions of it, which enhanced our enjoyment. I have been on several food tours and this was definitely one of the best.

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!!
