Fantastic and unique experience!

Our guide, Rashim, was excellent. The food and cultural history we got along the way were superb. My kids, ages 14 and 12, were so in to it. I lived in NYC for 9 years but I never got this kind of rich information or so many great tips for eats in Chinatown! I enthusiastically recommend this tour. Thank you!

Raheem did a great job and can't wait to go back to Chinatown and try some of the great places that he talked about.

Not only did we have delicious food but very interesting learning about the culture. Our guide Raheem was superb! I was traveling with my 17 yr. old granddaughter and she enjoyed the day as much as I did. If I would have had more time, I would have booked one of the other tours as well. Highly recommended!

I took my 15 year old son on this tour and we both loved it. Our tour guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic. We ended up skipping our planned activity for the next day and going back and retracing our steps, eating in our favorite places. Would highly recommend this tour group and will do another tour with them next time in the city.

Another fantastic Foods of New York tour.

This is my 4th tour with Food of NY - I think they are a fantastic way to experience the different neighbourhoods away from the "usual" tourist scene. Rahim was excellent (and Bert too!), and the food tastings were great. My 16 year old cousin had a fantastic time with the group so it can be a suitable outing for teenagers as well. We ended up going back to one of the restaurants with the rest of our group a couple of days later - excellent ideas for places to eat.

Best Value In The City - Foods of New York Tours

We took the FNYTours Chinatown Tour on Saturday April 23rd, 2011. We had previously taken their tour of Greenwich Village (with their star guide, Kurt Upton) during Easter Weekend 2010. The Greenwich experience together with Kurt's brilliant guideship - is what brought us back - and based on another superb performance by Rahim (Chinatown) we know we will return again. FNYTours has provided us with the very best in service, hospitality, quality and behind-the-scenes education - far beyond anything that we could have acquired on our own. We thoroughly enjoyed every single aspect of the Tour - and will continue to recommend, without reservations of any kind, these Tours to family, friends and associates. We took the Greenwich Village Tour in classic, blue-sky, Spring weather. We took the Chinatown Tour in cool, breezy, over-cast, rainy weather. And - our experience dovetailed with the advice of the legendary travel writer, Paul Theroux, who wrote : "Only a fool blames his bad vacation on the rain" - meaning - weather does not erode, in any way, the professional care with which FNYTours conducts their business. Both of our guide's infectuous enthusiasm for their City made our experience most memorable. We already are planning for a return Tour.

Tasty Treasure for Three Generations

I recently visted NYC with my 79 yr old mother and 24 yr old daughter and thoroughly enjoyed the Chinatown Food and Culture Walking Tour. Our guide, Raheem, was extremely knowledgeable of this unique neighborhood, its rich history, and its wonderful food. He made a good tour GREAT with his enthusiasm, humor, and friendly manner. This was my second NYC food and culture tour, (my first was the Chesea Market Tour) but my mother and daughter had never experienced one before. The food was delectable and the teas delicious.The Peking Duck was the best I have ever eaten! Choosing an outing for three generations of women can be daunting, but the Chinatown Food and Culture Tour was truly a treasure!

Great Food, Great Information, Great Guides
Mon, Jan 3, 11   12:00 PM Melhotz Female Under 20 Local Family With Children
This is a really great tour to do with others who are interested in the history and culture behind the food. This is not something I would recommend to do with children under the age of 15 or for picky eaters. The selection of food that the guides pick out for you are great and you eat enough overall to fill you up, but not so much that you feel sick after. This is also a great way to try out several restaurants knowing that you will be eating delicious food as opposed to spending roughly the same amount at a very expensive restaurant without the guarantee of high quality food. This is a great experience that everyone should try.
