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

Amazing food with a side of history

My expectations of this food tour was to walk to a few restaurants and try their popular dishes. Not only did I get to try appetizers and smaller portions of popular dishes, I learned about the foods and a little history of Chinatown. Our tour guide, Raheem, broke it down when it came to pretty much everything. On top of that, he was very funny, entertaining and ready to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, and plan on booking another food tour on my next vacation.

My friend and I planned a NYC trip to celebrate a birthdat. I had been on a food tour during a previous trip to Puerto Rico and it was a highlight. After investigating food tour companies in NYC it became clear Foods of NY Tours were the best in the business. We were not disappointed! the Chinatown tour was amazing! The food was excellent, the guide Raheem was hilarious and knowledgeable, and the fellow attendees were friendly. Highly recommended for anyone visiting NYC!

Terrific tour -- enthusiastic leader and good food

Bert has a wonderful personality, he is very welcoming, and very knowledgeable. The fact that we had such a small group meant a very special experience. We got to interact more with each other and with Bert and his colleagues. We got to critique a new menu, for example. My only suggestion (especially because we visited the Tenement Museum the next day) is that maybe the various cuisines and food ways could be tied together. Since a Vietnamese menu is being introduced, maybe some explanation of how the various Asian cuisines may have affected each other.

Loved everything! Don't let the ticket price hold you back. It is 100% worth it. You leave full ! We went last weekend and are already going back to the restaurants we visited with guests coming in from out of town. Will highly recommend this tour to locals and visitors.

Going to Chinatown had no appeal to me but my friend wanted to try it, so I was willing to join her. So glad I did! What an interesting few hours. We learned history and about the culture along with enjoying some good food that otherwise I wouldn't have sampled on my own. This tour consisted of three sit-down tastings between walks and ended with a sidewalk dessert tasting. A great way to spend a few hours & see another part of the city.

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.

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.
