Great food and fantastic stories

My walking tour of China Town was a great experience. Bert our guide was a terrific raconteur which greatly added to the pleasure of the tour. His stories painted colourful pictures of the area and enabled us to imagine what it must have been like in days gone by. I was also pleasantly surprised and delighted by the quality of the food offered. I am a frequent traveler to Hong Kong so wondered how the food would compare. It more than stood up with a decision to return to experience more from some of the venues. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who is visiting New York.

Really good tour guide, Raheim

Was a really good tour with a great tour guide. Informative, knowledgable, good sense of humor. Enjoyed all of the food except the last one. Eggplant and fried rice. I noticed several people left it on their plate. Eggplant was too slimy and the fried rice had a fish taste. Probably normal, but not good for our group

Our tour guide was funtastic! He made the experience much more enjoyable than expected. Two out of the restaurants were great! The third restaurant was not my fave, the food was a bit too strong of a flavor. In general I recommend this fun experience.

Chinatown tour is top-rate!

We have done three Chinatown tours with different companies. The FONY tour goes to unique places, both geographically and food-wise. It is the most food at GREAT restaurants, and we loved that three of the restaurants were sit-down meals. Rahim was incredibly knowledgeable and funny, and very attentive to everyone in the group. This was our second time on this tour and we would go again!!

I liked all parts of the Food Walking Tour. Very nice restaurants. Good choice of meals. Very good guide! Maybe a bit more contact and communication to the owners of the restaurants could be an improvement. Just some personal facts and statements of the chinese citizens. All in all: thanks!

My husband and I took two out of town guest on the China town tour, thinking how could it be better than the our last tour with Foods of NY,which was Greenwich village. It was as good and maybe even better!!!! We were amazed at the food and our guide Burt made each "meal" an educationally , fun experience...Plus it's obvious that Burt just loves his job!!! Can't wait to try the next tour! Iris Adler

We had Bert as our tour guide. He was extremely nice, funny and very knowledgeable about the Chinatown's food & history!! The tour started promptly, the walking was minimal, and the food samplings were delicious!! We enjoyed it immensely. Thanks Bert for doing such a great job!!!

We have taken other tours with this company and this was the best so far. The selection of food was first rate and gives us places to return to. Our guide, Bert, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He knew all about the food as well as the history and culture of the area.

2nd time--still great

Tour guide very enthusiastic and he had good rapport with the Chinese people who owned or worked at the places we stopped. They seemed genuinely pleased to see him and to have our tour group visit. I always recommend this tour when I hear that someone is taking a trip to Manhattan.
