I really like the experience, actually I would love to have more walking. Dont get me wrong, more walking to burn calories as fast as possible. Really, the food was very, very good, portions satisfying and restaurant selections were really nice. I particulary enjoy the Pecking Duck House @ 28 Mott St. And the final dessert a "Tiger' something roll, was splendid!

My husband and I enjoyed this tour a lot. (But not as much as the Central Village/SOHO tour by the same company and tour guide.) This tour was a great way to learn about and experience the neighborhood for outsiders like ourselves. I was a little apprehensive about the things we would taste on the tour because I knew traditional Chinese food involves some ingredients that are a bit more exotic than I'm normally willing to try. For instance, I can't bring myself to try eel, squid, or octopus. But that was not an issue at all. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all of the dishes. So much so that I had confidence that I would enjoy everything he had selected for us to sample. The food that we sampled was mostly new to me, but I enjoyed it all. I was pushed just enough out of my comfort zone that I felt like I got an authentic experience, without being grossed out.

I went on this tour last week (early May) with my boyfriend, and we had a wonderful time. The dim sum was our favorite part, and we had some extra time at the end of the tour to visit some of the other recommended restaurants. I highly recommend these tours. It was nice to keep the group size small (less than 20), and the guide was dynamic and interesting. Great sense of humor & very knowledgeable!

Our tour with Raheem was one of the highlights of our trip. This was our fourth tour with this company, and I think they are best food tour ever. We learned so much about the Chinatown history and area in addtion to tasting some really delicious food. We loved the Peking Duck and the Tiger Roll. Highly recommended.

This is the third of these walks i have done and every time i have come away knowing something new and full! The chinatown was different as you sit down at restaurants and there is a little less of the culture/architecture - but it is all about the food and that surpassed - especially the peking duck, and the dumplings...

Chinatown was wonderful.

Raheem was excellent. A thorough job of covering history of the area. The best tour I have taken in a long time. I have traveled to China many times, and this tour was amazing to tie old and new country together. Very talented tour guide. Was able to adjust as needed when restaurants weren't ready or crowds were a problem, with sensititvity to the locals as well as awareness of his group.
