We loved Bert. He was so obviously a foodie with a social historian's soul. The food was delicious, and Bert was able to answer all our questions both culinary and cultural. The tour was truly one of the highlights of our NYC trip. I'll be doing another one next time I come back.... YOU BETCHA!

I attended the tour on 4/21 with my husband and another couple. We are all locals just looking something fun to do. Bert, our guide, was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, up beat, and patient! I definitely recommend the Chinatown Food and Culture Walking tour, my only regret was that more of our friends didn't join us! Sign up, you won't regret it!

Chinatown Food Tour a breath of fresh air!

Despite having visited Chinatown on my own too many times to count, and having done two other Chinatown food tours, this tour took me to areas of Chinatown I had never visited! The guide, Bert, was enthusiastic, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about what we were eating, how it was prepared, and what made it the best! He also told us alot about the history of the area, including many new facts I had not previously heard. Having had Peking duck in Beijing some years ago, I must say the Peking duck we had on the tour was outstanding! I highly recommend this tour, my group loved it.

The tour was really great. As a local who lives uptown, Chinatown always intimidated me a bit. This was a great way to learn some history, try new restaurants, and spend time with my out of town friend. I will definitely be returning to Peking Duck House. Burt, the guide, was enthusiastic, funny, and a wealth of knowledge about the area. I definitely recommend this tour!

It's All About the Guide

Our guide was Bert. He was excellent!!! We want to come back later in the year and do the Greenwich Village tour and we will be asking for Bert! The tour & restaurants were excellent as well but ultimately, you have to have a good guide to keep things interesting & have knowledge to be able to offer historical information. Not just any history, but interesting history.

Wonderful experience -- A+++

Our guide Rahim was super -- very friendly & knowledgeable. The restaurant selection was amazing -- especially the Dim Sum Go Go -- where I definitely plan to go back on my own. And the Peking Duck was outstanding as well. This was even better than I had anticipated -- the entire experience is one I would certainly repeat and recommend to others. Real fun and well worth the price!

We went with a group of eight with a plan to try something different. We had so much fun. Bert, our tour guide, was pleasant, funny and extremely knowledgable about all aspects of Chinese food and Chinatown. He could even provide recipes. The food was very good and we had more than enough to eat. Our entire group felt that this was well worth it. We are planning our next tour as I write this.

Fun but safe

We had a great guide, Burt, who showed us around Chinatown and taught us a lot! However, I feel the tour is a bit "dialed down" for westerners. For example, for dessert we had the "tiger roll" a dessert that, we were told, can be found in any Chinese bakery. It's a yellow cake rolled around a chocolate cake, rolled around a ball of fudge. Not really Chinese. I would have liked to have some Chinese dessert and go out of our comfort zone. The Peking Duck was great, I really enjoyed it, the Dim Sum was great too! The only other thing I would point out is that I think I would have liked to have had the shopping stop at the end of the tour so those who want to shop don't have to hurry and those who don't want to stay in the store for a half an hour or so can move on to exploring the neighborhood on their own. Before this tour I'd never really been to New York's Chinatown, and this tour was definitely a great way to see it!
