Lively, informative, and very, very, very tasty!

Raheem (think I've spelled correctly) made this tour a delight. Of course, he had three fantastic first-rate restaurants to help him, as well as a batch of warm custard tarts for dessert from a Chinese bakery! But, he was a passionate advocate for the cuisines of China and a champion of their culture and their NYC community. What made the tour even more vital,was the fact that Raheem comes from a Muslim background and so was able to inject a true multicultural spirit into our walk and our dining. Both the tour and the guide should be considered local treasures. I recommend it to anyone who loves Chinese food, and BTW the Peking Duck was superlative, and I come from Vancouver, Canada, where good Mandarin chefs litter our Asian dining scene. Bravo!

guide enthusiastically led us through chinatown and provided an interesting history of area. Lots of good food but was dragging by the time it was over. It is a full three hour tour

BURT ROCKS CHINATOWN!!!

My son and I took the Chinatown Walking Tour led by Burt and enjoyed every minute of it! He is very knowledgeable and made the experience a lot of fun. The food was excellent (so good that we went back to Dim Sum GoGo the next day!) and the portions were extremely generous. The Peking Duck House is an experience in itself. The duck is carved tableside and is to die for! What I would give for that duck carcass now that I'm home! This tour is worth every penny spent and more! Thank you, Burt for making this Florida girl's first trip to NYC complete! Kim Turano

The best food tour I've been on. Loved Rahim!

We did an amazing walking tour of chinatown with Rahim. He was extremely knowledgeable and fun. He told us the history of the area, it's beginnings and how it has changed over the years. We loved the three restaurants he took us to. He was quite attuned to the chinese culture and we learned lots of fun facts in addition to enjoying some really delicious food. I definitely would recommend it, especially with Rahim as your guide!

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?
