Great Tour!

The tour was a great way to see chinatown and to get amazing food we would never have found by ourselves. The guide was excellent and was sharing his knowledge in a personal way. We had a lot of fun and couldnt eat any more food for the rest of the day. We recommend you all to take this tour, and that you eat a very small breakfast before, if any.

Feel comfortable eating around Chinatown.

The tour was great. The guides made us feel very comfortable in Chinatown as tourist. I liked eating in the restaurants , but equally liked eating on the streets. The guides made it clear that they were not in a deal with the places we visited and were a little dissapointed when there would be a hard sell at the end by the shop. I found this fine and I think it is important for new people to Chinatown to get used to the hard sell they do and just say no thank you and walk away if they are not interested, it is just business. Good tour guides. We will do another tour!

The Chinatown tour was a highlight of our trip. The combination of cultural history, food history, well-organized guides, and, not least, good food made this a perfect tour.

This tour is a winner!

We were privileged to be on the first-ever Chinatown Walking Tour, and it gave us not only a great experience of tasting the unique food and learning the history of the area, but we got to see all the planning and preparation that goes into these tours. Rahim and Todd did a great job handling the inevitable curveballs that occur during a first-time run-through. This was the highlight of our week in Manhattan, and it will only get better as time goes on! We loved the food, loved the atmosphere of Chinatown, loved the whole experience.

Bert was wonderful - so knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. We learned so much we wouldn't have if we hadn't gone on this tour - my son (a major foodie) had an exceptional time and can't wait to get back to NYC and put his newfound knowledge to good use!

Delicious food. Great guide. This was a fun way to explore a different part of NYC. It was worth the money. There was plenty of food, and you were introduced to some of the top places to eat in Chinatown. Highly recommended!

Saw a side of Chinatown I have never seen before

This was my 6th time visiting nyc from michigan, and my 5th food tour with this company. I was so glad when my teens wanted to take this tour because I always get turned around in Chinatown and don't know where to go or what to eat. WE LOVED every minute of it. It was informative, relaxing the food was amazing, and we saw a good chunk of chinatown. our tour guide Burt (who I had for the Greenwich Village tour) was very informative, and fun! The kids loved him.

Great learning experience, lots of fun, and tasty!

If you are a tourist or New York local and you love to try exotic new things, then the Chinatown Food and Culture walking tour is the perfect thing to do! The walking tour was full of great restaurants, amazing food and lots of fun! The tour guide seemed to know a lot about the history of Chinatown so we had many small discussions about how things got to where they are, the history of Chinatown and how the food is made interesting. Very good food, everything we ate and did was above or expectations! Don't worry about the idea of walking for two and a half hours because you won't! Stopping at restaurants to eat and sit is twenty minutes max, so it gives your legs time to rest. Everybody is friendly and the tour gives you a great opportunity to meet people from near and far!! -Emma, age 11

Bert was great!

Bert was a wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. He appeared genuinely enthusiastic about Chinatown and it's cuisines and you can't help but get wrapped up in his energy. He also has developed relationships with the vendors--making you feel like you were on an insider's tour. Definitely will look for more tours with Bert, and return to these new food gems he introduced us to.
