several foods just weren't that good.

Our tour guide Bert was wonderful and very informative. The food just wasn't all that good. I don't think it was his fault. There were leftovers after most stops. The dim sum was the best. I felt it went down hill after that. But Bert was truly great!! He gave us a lot of information. Just did not care for the food. We have been on several tours, but this one was not that great with the food. I was hoping for more.

Great food and cultural experience. The guide, Burt, is incredible in his food and cultural knowledge of Chinatown and gave us a great time. We will recommend this tour to others. We would recommend to add half an hour, cut the Cantonese stop and add a walk through the Mott street market.

We loved Bert. He was so obviously a foodie with a social historian's soul. The food was delicious, and Bert was able to answer all our questions both culinary and cultural. The tour was truly one of the highlights of our NYC trip. I'll be doing another one next time I come back.... YOU BETCHA!

Chinatown Food Tour a breath of fresh air!

Despite having visited Chinatown on my own too many times to count, and having done two other Chinatown food tours, this tour took me to areas of Chinatown I had never visited! The guide, Bert, was enthusiastic, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about what we were eating, how it was prepared, and what made it the best! He also told us alot about the history of the area, including many new facts I had not previously heard. Having had Peking duck in Beijing some years ago, I must say the Peking duck we had on the tour was outstanding! I highly recommend this tour, my group loved it.

Chinatown tour was wonderful!

The Chinatown tour was wonderful. Burt was our tour guide and was a wealth of information and clearly enjoys his job. We had fantastic Peking duck at one of the hottest restaurants in Chinatown that will be remembered for years to come. Burt is very knowledgeable of the history of the area and the culture. Burt had many interesting stories to tell us of Chinatown in addition to the food we were served. All three restaurants that we ate in are highly rated and are widely recognized as in the top tier. We also visited several local stores selling a

wide variety of different merchandise. I would recommend this tour to anyone that enjoys food and history.

We went with a group of eight with a plan to try something different. We had so much fun. Bert, our tour guide, was pleasant, funny and extremely knowledgable about all aspects of Chinese food and Chinatown. He could even provide recipes. The food was very good and we had more than enough to eat. Our entire group felt that this was well worth it. We are planning our next tour as I write this.
