Saw a side of Chinatown I have never seen before
Sat, May 24  10:30 AM sheila2494 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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.

Best way to experience Chinatown!

We've always been a little scared to do Chinatown on our own, so this tour was a great, safe introduction for us. Not only did we visit restaurants that we would return to, we also got a list of other recommended restaurants in the neighborhood that we wouldn't hesitate to try. Bruce was incredibly knowledgeable about the food/neighborhood and was a lot of fun as well. We have been on every tour offered and have never been disappointed. We will probably do them all again!! Thanks to Bruce for a wonderful experience.

Chinatown Highlights

Great culinary and cultural tour of New York's Chinatown. This is an area that we have not visited on our many trips to New York. Our guide, Bert, provided much insight on the area and the food. Well done!

Fantastic way to spend your time and money

Our tour guide Burt was extremely friendly, highly knowledgeable, humorous and possessed the important skill of effectively communicating information in the proper format and context to the disparate members of our group. Whether he was explaining techniques to a member of our group who was a chef or to our teenage children he was patient, descriptive and informative. The choice of restaurants was eclectic and the menu items were expansive. One of the most impressive skills Burt demonstrated was his experience and feedback concerning menu items and establishments that were not included in the tour. We followed his recommendation to try a meal at another place and found the food and service impeccable. While I imagine other guides are skilled, we highly recommend seeking out Burt as your guide.

Only tour in NYC we took
Fri, Mar 21  12:00 PM johnaamiller Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
First off, great time on the tour. Made more so by the guide, Bert, beenies (cuz it was cold) off to him! Brought my 9 year old son with me and he said mid tour, "this is so great thanks for bringing me mom!" We spent a month in NYC and this was the only tour we went on as there is so much you can tour by yourself, with audio guides and maps, etc. However, Chinatown and it's mysteries and wide array of food choices was calling out for just such a tour. Really recommend.

One of the best NY Experiences!
Sat, Jan 4  10:30 AM wrnadel Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
I've lived in the NY area my entire life and never did a food tour. We liked our Chinatown tour so much that my daughter and her boyfriend came back the next day to do the Greenwich Village tour, which they also loved. Burt was an extraordinary tour guide -- fun and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic and it was great to learn about the history and culture of Chinatown through the tastes and flavors of the food. Highly recommend this experience!
