Combine insider access with exceptional, authentic cuisine ... toss in great humor, fun facts, and an energetically clever guide for...one delightful, active and story-filled morning. Even the New Yorkers in the group were swept away by this insider vantage...not to be missed!

We had a great time. Our guide Burt was knowledgeable, informative, interesting and did an excellant job. The food and choice of restaurants was outstanding. Our experience was enhanced with Burt's details regarding the various dishes we were being served along with interesting tid bits of history regarding Chinatown. We have already told, neighbors, friends and family about the good time we had. We are planning to go on the Village tour next, which was highly recommended by one of the couples we met from our group.

I've lived in NYC for ten years, and I had just as much fun on this tour--and learned just as much--as the tourists in the group. Our guide, Raheem, was really knowledgeable and shared tons of fascinating stories about Chinatown, Chinese culture and Chinese-American culture, and more. The food was incredible. It was a great way to find out where the best restaurants are in a neighborhood that I don't know very well. I'll definitely be going back for more dumplings as soon as possible! This tour is a perfect activity to do with out-of-town guests, but it's great for NYers, too (if you can swallow your pride and allow yourself to be seen following a tour guide around). No matter how much you think you know about this incredible city we live in, there's always more to learn.

We had been on the company's Greenwich Village walking tour in the past and since we had friends in town for Thanksgiving we thought we'd try it again. To our (initial) disappointment there wasn't availability on any of the tours apart from the China Town walk, which we were actually in two minds about because we aren't avid fans of this type of cuisine. In the end we trusted the reviews we read on Zerve and booked it and we're really glad we did. Burt was an extremely engaging tour guide with a clear passion for his job which made the tour tremendously enjoyable. There wasn't a lot of walking (the entire tour takes place below Canal Street) but the food was excellent and we learned a lot about the history of the local area. Two thumbs up!

8 of us signed up for this tour after having taken several of the other "Foods of NY" tours. While the tours in general are excellent, this one was outstanding and memorable. The three sit down food experiences were each unique and of the highest quality and service. Our tour guide, Bert, gave us the inside scoop on the preparation of the foods, the historical and cultural aspects of the regional cuisine of China, and the unique and little known secrets of NY Chinatown. Highly recommended.
