great food and great host!

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.

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.

7th Foods of NY tour... can't wait for the next

AS it says above, this was my 7th Foods of NY tour... the first for the Chinatown tour. It did not disappoint at all. It is different from the others in that there is less history and more food time, and the food for the most part is sit-down and service... it was explained, and makes sense, that this is what is the best for this part of NY. The food was fabulous from start to finish, and quite a lot. And again, it had us trying restaurants that we most probably would not have done on our own. There is history and explanation of the area, and that was informative and very interesting. We had Rajim as our tour guide, and he has a wonderful way to give the background and facts while always being entertaining and easy to follow. We highly recommend this tour, as well as all of the Foods of NY tours...

Well worth the time and expense!

My mother and I recently took a weeklong trip to Manhattan. The Chinatown Food and Culture Tour was, most certainly, a highlight, if not THE highlight, of both of our experiences. Rahim, our tour guide, was amazing. He was personable and knowledgeable; he made sure he talked individually to every member of our tour group, and he was a veritable wealth of information about the area. Then there was the food! Absolutely delicious - everything was fantastic! It was a wonderful experience, trying new foods from authentic Chinatown restaurants. The peking duck in particular was phenomenal. If you have the chance to take this tour, I highly recommend it. It's an amazing experience!

A great first trip to New York!

I brought a friend who is nineteen years old on this tour. It was her first trip into New York, she was visiting from Copenhagen. I set up a day trip that began with this food tour of Chinatown. I had been on another one of these food tours so I knew she would enjoy it. This Chinatown tour was slightly more expensive than the previous food tour I did of Greenwich Village but we received more food with this tour. Both of us enjoyed it tremendously. This is a wonderful way to see parts of New York. Thank you for a great job!

Great tour and tourguide
Sat, Apr 16, 11   10:30 AM KAT1977 Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Other
The 3 hours passed quite quickly, with plenty of information on Chinatown and the cuisine being doled out in addition to the great food samples. Loved the Peking Duck - it was the highlight of the tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. He stayed aware of the group and handled any unexpected situations (a few small wrinkles in the itinerary) well. Overall, a great experience.
