We took the Saturday tour with Raheem. One of the best tour guides we have ever had. The tour highlights are on the website. My wife and I are not the most adventurous foodies but loved every single thing we tried. In addition to the 3 sit down tastings and one pastry tasting, we visited several local shops. The tour was great but our guide made it awesome. He was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. If we are able to do another food tour in New York we will ask for him.

We have been on many food tours in many different major cities. Hands down this was the best! Our guide, Bart, was extremely knowledgeable and it was apparent he truly loves his job. The food was outstanding and we will come back and visit each restaurant individually. I highly recommend this tour to everyone!

Raheem was a great guide. Very enthusiastic and knowledgable about the area and food. Thought only one Peking duck wrap would have been sufficient and it may have brought the price down a bit . Wasn't impressed with the Malaysian food stop, however. Inspite of this, I still recommend the tour.

This was our 1st food tour and I honestly did not know what to expect. Both my wife and I had a great time. The tour was a nice mix of the history of Chinatown and a sampling of the food. All of the food stops were great. We would like to return to all of the restaurants to dine. Our guide also showed us several additional eateries/bars that we would like to visit. If we only had the time......

My father (visiting from Miami) and I took this tour on a balmy Friday morning and were fortunate enough to have Bert as our guide. He was phenomenal! Extremely informative and highly engaging. Would highly recommend for both locals and tourists.

The tour leader, Rahim, was full of interesting information and was so pleasant and helpful. The food was excellent. we even went home with 3 duck carcasses from the Peking Duck restaurant, which was amazing. I made a great duck broth and pho with it. Would definitely recommend this tour to other folks.

Great Experience!

Our group consisted of myself, husband and two daughters ages 9 and 11. We opted for Chinatown tour because sounded interesting but also was the only tour available in the evening. We are so glad it worked out that way because we would have not thought of Chinatown as a tourist destination had we not joined tour.

Our experience was unforgettable and one we will share with others. The restaurants were all very nice, clean and delicious. The tour guide was the HIGHLIGHT of our tour. He was so knowledgeable, kind and professional. He took us into little shops and explained to us the details inside the shop as well as interesting history tidbits of Chinatown. Most importantly he made my daughters feel comfortable and showed them a great time.

This was a nice change from the "usual" New York tourist destinations and a MUST do for someone open to experiencing something outside the box.
