delicious fun history

I really enjoyed my tour. The 3 hours flew by and everyone on our tour was stuffed with the delicious tastings by the end. I liked that there was a lot of history woven through the tastings and the little hand-out with a map was a nice bonus. I also liked the tips on Chinese table etiiquette. This tour made me want to try some others

Excellent guide and food

Raheem was knowledgeable and enthusiastic; and cared for his customers. The food was exquisite! He found the best of the best to show us. Unfortunately he was unable to provide us with a paper guide to what we saw and ate. I would like very much to have one as we live in NY and would definitely return to the restaurants. Could Raheem please email us an attachment with the restaurant names and addresses?

Great tour on a cold day!

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.

Raheem, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He provided a delicious and highly informative glimpse into one of New York's most vital and fascinating neighborhoods. In addition to the excellent fare, our tour was replete with invaluable facts about history, local culture, and etiquette. I would recommend this to both tourists and locals.

It was a first time food tour for me and I enjoyed it very much. The food was excellent as well as the tour and the tour guide. I can only but recommend this tour. Should I have the chance to come back to NYC, I will for sure take one of the other tours offered by Foods of New York.

This is the 2nd time I do a food tour with this company and it is very recommendable. The 2 guides knew a lot about what they were talking about and very friendly. If I go to NY again, I would do a tour again. VERY WORHT IT!

Favorite tour!

My husband and myself were in NY for 6 days and I went on 8 tours in that time, the Chinatown tour was my favorite. Our tour guide, Bert was great. The tour had just the right mix of eating, walking and information about the area and the food we were tasting. I would enthusiastically recommend this tour with Bert of course he was the best!!

Wonderful Food and Insight into Chinatown

A wonderful combination of getting to know Chinese kitchen, including and beyond the classics, and a walk through Chinatown, which has encouraged us to venture back on our own during our next visit to the big apple.

Great experience
Thu, Oct 30  6:00 PM Paulmharris Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Individual
It was great to be taken round this interesting area by a guide who obviously knew it so well, having lived there for many years. We were made welcome in each of the restaurants visited and given a great selection of food. A bonus for us on this occasion was that the group was small and this meant a more intimate and personal experience. I hope to take another of your tours when I return to NY.
