The highlight of our trip!!
Thu, May 14  6:00 PM annanoel Unspecified 20-29 Combination Family With Children
My husband, my two adolescent girls, and myself did this tour. Bert, who I understand is not the usual tour guide for Chinatown, did an amazing job. He was profoundly knowledgable and knew most of the employees at the restaurants we we visited. He was hallarious, incorporating stories about his family, amidst the interesting information provided. He was so amazing that we considered trying to see if we could fit in another one of his tours while in NY. I am a stay-at-home mom and we live in one income so expenses are a consideration for us. This was pricy, but worth EVERY penny!!! The food was so good - in fact, the best we had on the trip. My girls were anxious we would get just very small samples and go away hungry. Not the case -- we were stuffed. I want to hire Bert as my personal travel guide on my next trip!!!!

Suggest older people take the daytime tour as spicy Chinese food late is hard on us old ones.

Excellent food and background information

This was an excellent tour - our guide was extremely knowledgeable about both the food and the history of Chinatown. Importantly to me, he was also very enthusiastic about it, which made coming out on a rainy day well worth it. Money well spent!

Bert was very knowledgeable, having lived in Chinatown for several yrs. He was enthusiastic and seemed to have good rapport with the shop owners. Food was very good and mire than enough.

Best eating tour yet.

My friend and I have taken 2 other eating tours with Foods of NY before but I think this one was the best so far. The portions were sizable and satisfying. The food tasted amazing( especially the Peking Duck) and our guide Bert was full of historical and gastronomical facts. He clearly loves food and NY. Great day.

The food was good, the tour guide (Burt) was fun/friendly/informative. Not much more to say.
