Well worth the time and expense!

My mother and I recently took a weeklong trip to Manhattan. The Chinatown Food and Culture Tour was, most certainly, a highlight, if not THE highlight, of both of our experiences. Rahim, our tour guide, was amazing. He was personable and knowledgeable; he made sure he talked individually to every member of our tour group, and he was a veritable wealth of information about the area. Then there was the food! Absolutely delicious - everything was fantastic! It was a wonderful experience, trying new foods from authentic Chinatown restaurants. The peking duck in particular was phenomenal. If you have the chance to take this tour, I highly recommend it. It's an amazing experience!

Highlight of Trip

We greatly enjoyed this tour and how well our guide understood the area and its history. He was also enthusiastic and passionate about his subject, and obviously had built a good rapport with the vendors we visited. While the foods we tasted were not our favorite - our tastes have been throughly Americanized - it was all high quality and all establishments were clean and well kept. This was our third food tour in New York and each has been well worth the time and money.

Chinatown Tour a Good Decision

While I don't usually bother to contribute reviews, this tour was exceptionally worthwhile. The food was very good and of sufficient quantity, Raheem's commentary entertaining and informative, the walking was easy, and the seated dining was comfortable.

Raheem knows the cuisine and the providers and it shows. There was more food tasting than on any other we have done and a really great explanation of each tasting. Dim Sum Go Go was so great we went back on our own three days later to sample more. We can not recommend this hghly enough.

Bought this tour as a Christmas gift for my dad. We both thought it was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable, professional, and entertaining. All the food samples were delicious. This was my third tour with Foods of NY and I've thought they were all well worth it.
