Terrific introduction to Chinatown
Sat, Sep 26  10:30 AM TAtwood Female 50-59 Unspecified Group of Friends
Seven of us signed up for the Saturday Chinatown tour - we go to NYC fairly frequently (we are from Connecticut) but haven't explored that part of the city. Rakeem, our guide, was personable, funny, entertaining, and knowledgeable of the area, and gave a great value for what we paid for the 3 hour tour. The food was interesting and varied, we explored some hidden alleyways, stopped into a really interesting candy store, and learned a little about funeral customs. This is my second Foods of New York Tours, and I'll continue to recommend them to others - whether you know the city or not, it's a great time with interesting tidbits of food and local history!

Our guide Raheem entertained throughout our 3 restaruant tour of NYC china town. Good mix of knowledge and humour kept things light. The food itself was good in each. Starters in Dim Sum Go Go especially. Weather was terrible so our walkabout was curtailed slightly but gave enough 'flavour' of china town.

Wonderful Chinatown Experience With Raheem

Our tour was Labor Day Weekend Saturday and Raheem was our guide. We were thrilled to have Raheem again as we had taken one of the Greenwich Village tours with him a few years ago. He had us laughing and learning the whole time. The tour has some great stops on it and there is a nice variety of food types and establishments visited. Raheem also points out additional places to check out along the tour route. The food easily replaces a meal and we left feeling comfortable full. We definitely have a new favorite dim sum place after having been on this tour. Absolutely, positively recommend this tour.

Chinatown food tour was great fun!!

Our tour guide Bert had excellent knowledge of the area. Even though I have been to New York's chinatown multiple times I learned history and cultural information that I hadn't known before. He really made the tour, very pleasant, fun and accommodating of everyone in the group. The restaurants we visited were unique and excellent. This tour was a highlight of my trip to New York. I will plan to take other tours in other areas the next time I am there. This is a great way to spend part of a day in New York.
