We really enjoyed the tour. Raheem was very knowledgable about the area, the history and very descriptive in the food as we ate it so it was a learning experience and not just eating great food. Can't wait until in NYC again to try another tour.

I loved the Food Tour of Greenwich Village and thought this would be as good. It's OK, interesting, not a waste of time or money, but no where near as good as Greenwich Village. Not enough variety. How about tasting different teas or trying some exotic fruit at one of the street vendors?

Informative and delicious

Our group was composed of local New Yorkers and out of town guests. We all thought it was a great tour , and a great eating experience. The three hours went by so fast. It surpassed what we were expecting. Our guide, Bert, made everyone comfortable and presented lots of interesting facts. All of us plan to take another tour with the company.

We loved the Chinatown tour -- our daughter & son-in-law, who live in NYC, had taken it a few months ago and raved about it. We agree. Our tour guide, Bert, was personable, knowledgeable about both the food and the culture/history of Chinatown and the city, and kept us on schedule without rushing. The food was terrific and it was fun and enlightening. Highly recommended!

Food was fantastic. Our tour guide Bert was entertaining and very informative on both descriptions of the food we were consuming as well as the history of China town.

good tour but wish there was more variety of food.

I've been on 2 other tours with this company and found both of them to be much better. The guide was fine. The Nice to have 3 restaurants that we were able to come in to and sit to eat ! food was delicious, but it would have been nicer if there had been more food tastings. There was only a dumpling restaurnat (delicious) and a roast duck restaurant (delicious) an eggplant and fried rice stop (delicious) and an tiny ice tea at the end. It was filling, but I'd rather have had a little less at each stop and a few more stops. How about some sample at the Chinese Ice Cream Shop, and an egg roll ? Will go on the LIttle Italy tour next time I am in town and hope that the samplings are more abundant. If this is your first tour, I'd suggest going on the Greenwich Village sampling!

Excellent Guide, Tour & Food

This tour was recommended by a neighbor who has done lots of NYC food tours. It was definitely the wonderful experience she said it would be. Bert was a terrific guide. He obviously loves the area, the food and his job. We totally enjoyed tooling around Chinatown, learning about the culture and eating the authentic and very tasty dishes served at our various stops.

The guide was excellent - very knowledgeable

I cannot say enough about the guide. He was very knowledgeable with the history, local customs/traditions and of course the food. The first two restaurants were great choices and the food was both exciting and fabulous. The third was not acceptable and another option should be chosen. The apothecary was interesting but the tea store was a waste of time.
