Great experience for native NYer's and visitors

Our group was a mix of native New Yorkers and visiting family. We had an infant with us which was not a problem. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I have always have been hesitant about touring and eating in Chinatown because I did not know where to go. The tour led us to the best places. The food was excellent. Even though it was cold and rainy we enjoyed the walk through the streets being told the history. The group size was comfortable and the guide engaging. I am now more comfortable with Chinatown and look forward to taking the other tours.

Made Chinatown comfortable for New York family

Like many New York families, we tend to stick to our neighborhood and the things that are familiar to us. The Chinatown Food Walking Tour gave us a fun way to introduce our son to the sights, sounds and tastes of Chinatown, which he'd always been curious about. It also has given us the comfort to start making Chinatown's wonderful restaurants and shops a regular part of our lives. Our guide was Raheem was energetic and informative and the food, in the words of our ten year old, was "delicious," especially the "excellent" Peking Duck.

We have been to NYC many times. We love to visit Chinatown. This visit we decided to be tourists. It was my daughter's 18th birthday and she loves Asian culture, so this tour was perfect. Our guide was fantastic and provided us with an amazing afternoon we will always treasure! Our bellies were full and our minds were enriched with history! -Elyse and Tarney from Arizona

Way above the rest

I have been on many New York food tours and was most impressed with this one. What makes it unique is that you actually sit down for meals in several restaurants as opposed to standing outside in the street. The food was delicious authentic chinese food - not your standard take out fare.

Fun for less adventurous Chinese diners
Mon, Apr 5, 10   12:00 PM bklein62 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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!

Highly recommended

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
Mon, Dec 21, 09   12:00 PM DKSauer Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
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.
