A great fun and interesting way to spend a morning

The tour was great, informative, relaxed and a lot of fun, It was a fantasic way to see a part of the city we may not have visited. The information regarding the food was especially useful especially regarding the dim sum. I also enjoyed both the historical aspects of the tour as well as the more modern history. The guide was great and made all feel welcome, his interaction with the restaurants as we went around was good to see. I will definietly look into another tour when next in NYC and have and will continue to recommend, Thank You

The tour stopped at 3 restaurants and two shops, an herbalist and a tea shop. I wasn't just fed, I was educated about the food. It's authenticity was explained and I learned how the food was cooked. I enjoyed the tour and I recommend it to others.

This is our 3rd tour with Foods of NY-all of them fabulous. We absolutely loved our experience in Chinatown. Our tour guide, Bert, was knowledgeable and so funny!! The foods we tasted we were outstandingl-super delicious dumplings, peking duck, bbq eggplant w/fried rice and plum tea. The tour was informative and a wonderful way to become better familiar with Chinatown and all the culinary delights and history it has to offer. Thank you for an excellent tour-it was amazing!

Not just food, but culture tour.

I'm from Brazil and I live in Manhattan it has been a year. I've been to Chinatown a couple times, and I thought it was ok, but not very interesting. I changed my mind after the walking tour. All the information that the guide gave us about the culture, and the amazing food we had at the restaurants made me want to come back there more often. I'm also recommending the tour to all my friends that came to NY and ask for tips, because it's a great way to know the city, instead of just walking around without knowing exactly what you are seeing.

Great food on an interesting visit

This was the second tour that we have done with Foods of New York, and we enjoyed it every bit as much. This tour was more food-oriented; it included three sit-down mini-meals, all of which were delicious and interesting. The meals were accompanied by useful explanations of the culinary traditions and the methods of preparation. Our tour guide, Bert, was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to; he welcomed questions and could usually answer them. He also led us through some of the streets and alleys of Chinatown, explaining the history of evolution of the neighborhood. He encouraged us to try some of the local delicacies, but he was kind enough to warn us about the strangeness of some of the flavors and textures -- forewarned was forearmed. The only thing I would have liked added was a recommendation of where to shop for local specialties -- linens, jewelry, gifts, etc. We would certainly recommend this tour, and we will do another tour with this company when we are back in New York City again.

Great time and great experience

We enjoyed the food and the guide Bert was superb. Will do it again sometime in the future... We suggest in the future links to local hotel will benefit those that don't want to wake up early in the morning and take a bus to the meeting place.
