Informative,yummy,and friendly!

Enjoyed the history of the area, most of the food, and the pointers of Chinese eating etiquette given to us by our friendly and well-informed guide. Got a true flavor of China Town and am hoping to return to this part of the Big Apple when I visit again. Was disaapointed that we did not sample any dumplings which is one of my favorite Chinese dishes (even though that part of the tour was unavailable due to last minute circumstances). Did not enjoy the Peking duck, since it was just too fatty and would have preferred another tasing @ a different restaurant. The garlic pancakes were also too greasy for my palette. The first restaurant visited was excellent and the food superb. I enjoyed this tour and would highly recomment it to anyone who wants to get a good introduction to this historical area of N.Y.C. I also welcomed the printed brochure given to us highlighting the places we visited along the way which I will keep as a reference in my travel files.

Great tour for the afternoon.....

Was given these tickets as a holiday gift and brought a friend. As two NY locals who thought we knew Chinatown, this was a great tour - both because of the great food and the general history and information provided on the tour. Definitely full after the tour but loved the food, especially the Dim Sum Go Go to start the tour. Couldn't help but take notes throughout the tour....can't wait to go back and explore Chinatown again now that we're 'experts'....

Me and a friend (from England) booked tickets to this event after going on the Greenwich tour last year and completely enjoying that one. And to be honest, we weren't disappointed with this tour. The tour guide (Remon?) had a lot of local knowledge and gave a nice insight into the etiquette and history of China and their food. This tour was particularly good, as there was a lot of places to sit and enjoy the food. The best part, for us, was watching the chef slice the peking duck, and to top it off, the duck was absolutely lovely. There was nothing that we didn't like on the tour. The food was well thought out and presented at the right times in the tour. The guide was clear; concise and knowledgable, and was keen to share his knowledge. I would give this event 5 stars out of 5 and really would recommend the tour to anyone who wants to learn more about an area and learn more about the food.

This was the best walking tour I've done and much better than Big Onion company. The guide Raheem was superb and had a wonderful light delivery style. We got just the right amount of information, trivia and humour. Quality of food was brilliant and we felt inspired by whole experience. Would most certainly come on another tour. Thank you.

Take this Tour!

Each time we take one of your tours, this was our third, we think "How can another, be as good?" And, each time we are rewarded with another wonderful experience. Our excellent and jovial guide, Raheim (sp?), offered up historical tidbits on this neighborhood's long immigrant past, and on the Chinese-Americans who now call this area "home", as he navigated us through winding streets in search of Chinese delicacies. Raheim's enthusiasm for the area's excellent food was not misplaced. All the establishments we visited offered DELICIOUS fare. The dim sum, Peking duck, roast pork were outstanding! We are already making plans to head back for dinner....our palate was has been thoroughly enthralled! And, Foods of NY? Well done, we will be back for yet another tour soon!

I have been planning to take a foods of NY tour for some time now and I was not disappointed with the Chinatown tour. Besides the wonderful food, the best thing about this tour was our guide, Rasheem. He was so knowledgeable about Chinatown and actually other parts of the city and its food. It was surprising how much food we ate for the price of this ticket. WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE!! I am anxious to take other foods of ny tours when I am in town again. Thanks.

Summer Day Well Spent in Chinatown
Mon, Aug 24, 09   12:00 PM barbg647 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Exploring Chinatown on a summer's day with a food & cultural guide was a wonderful day well spent! Raheem, our tour guide was very well versed in Chinese culture & food, patient, kind and humorous. He knew the area intricately and was enthusiastic in relaying this information to the group. I recommend this tour - highly educational & entertaining. This is the 2nd neighborhood tour we have experienced with FoodTours in NYC and am looking forward to the next NY neighborhood. By the way, the food was excellent and plentiful!!!
