Fun for less adventurous Chinese diners

Had fun, had a good history lesson (which I really enjoyed) and had some good food. This is not a tour for those looking for exotic Chinese food. The offerings were of excellent quality, but all were things accessible to anyone in a city of any size. Great for finicky eaters!

Our guide, Raheem, was very knowledgable. Wish we'd been on the tour earlier on our trip to NY, as we would have gone back to the restaurants, but unfortunately it was our last day. Our 11-year-old daughter really loved it.

best organized and enthusiastic

This was one of the best organized tours I have ever taken. Rahim's excitement for the neighborhood shined through in his explanations of the history and culture of the area as well as present day information. The restaurants and in particular the food choices were absolutely amazing. The written information provided during the tour will guide me back to the places we visited and to some of the best bites of food I have ever sampled and also to places and dishes described in such detail by Rahim that I can't wait to return to New York to find these hidden gems. Our entire group was absolutely full of food and knowledge at the end of the tour. Rahim clearly has a passion for food and culture and I would recommend any tour that he leads.

Totally worth it

This tour exceeded our expectations! Even though it was the hottest day of the summer, our beginning at Dim Sum Go Go was a perfect way to begin. Rashid was fantastic - thorough, friendly, and knowledgeable. Loved the Peking Duck, and loved all the details Rashid gave us. Really enjoyed the stop at the Chinese medicine store - bubble tea was fun to try, and we really appreciated that Rashid shared his freebie with our 8-year old son. We would highly recommend this tour to others (already have!) and will definitely explore other food tour options with you next time we visit New York. Thanks for the highlight of our trip!

Went on the Chinatown Walking Tour with my husband and two children (age 12 and 14) in the middle of July. We all really enjoyed the experience. The children did not appreciate the food but they tasted everything and thanks to our competent guide they found the tour interesting and exciteing. Even though the tour ended at three o'clock we were still not hungry in the evening. I would recommend the tour to everyone who´s interested in (or curious about) the Chinese Cuisine and would like to know more.

Great Activity with Teens

We really enjoyed the Chinatown tour. The Leader was entertaining and knowlegable. My 19yr old went into it thinking it would be a "cheesy" experience with a memorized script but really enjoyed the guide and his presentation. His incredible knowledge of the topic and of other NYC sites was impressive.

As we are from Holland we like to have value for money And our tour brought more than we expected, everyone of our family was enthousiast,even the youngest( 10)and she did not understand our guide Amazing fresh was the colour and the taste of the Dimsum we got I would say the tour and the food was not worth a journey to New York, but when you are there it is worth making a detour (2 star Michelin) Jelle
