The best food tour we have been on!

NY Tours have been at the top of our NYC exploring list the past few years. It is the best way to explore the city and eat great food. The CHINATOWN Tour has been our favorite so far!!! Rahim was spectacular and my favorite part was the sit down dining.

Navigating Chinatown delicious

All the food was great quality, provided in a way that would never have managed in the short timeframe we had. Tours are small so not obnoxious. Lots of history and fun facts. Highly recommend.

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!

Chinatown food tour

The host was energetic, friendly and informed. The food for the most part was good and well chosen. The dim sum place and Malaysian place were excellent. The Peking Duck place while renowned and much praised gave us small pieces of duck in a tortilla type of roll which is not Chinese in culture and hid the taste of the duck. The walk was very good and enjoyable to hear from Rahim. He was courteous and gracious.

I highly recommend this tour for a great introduction to a part of town that never been on my itinerary. Had I had time, I would have selected a second tour.

Our guide Bert was charming and knowledgeable ! He was very considerate of everyone's needs.

The choices of restaurants and the care that was given to us was exceptionable. I can't wait to come back and try more of the suggestions. I have taken almost every tour this company has to offer and each one is memorable and worth mention to everyone ,who tells me they are coming to Manhattan

Wonderful Food Adventure

Despite the size of the group, Bert, the guide, knew everyone's name within the first few minutes and was passionate about his work, food and meeting people. All four food places (Go Go Dim Sum, Peking Duck House, West New Malaysian and the egg tart bakery) provided excellent services, high quality food and substantive servings. My first Food of NY Tour and will not be my last.

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.
