Terrific introduction to Chinatown

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!

Bert was friendly and informative. We left there with our bellies full and feeling like we had experienced Chinatown in a new way. We had visited Chinatown 3 years ago and had walked through the area not really understanding the culture and history. Bert gave us yummy food and a new insight.

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!

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.

We really enjoyed our Chinatown food tour. We had a great tour guide (Raheem) - we highly recommend him. The food we had on our tour was delicious - and we got a lot of food. We also learned a lot about Chinatown's history and culture while on the tour. We will be going on the food tour of Greenwich Village next time we're in NYC.

My adult daughter and I had a wonderful time on this tour. Our tour guide Rahim was knowledgable and enthusiastic. We never would have found on our own the interesting places he showed us. I would definitely take another tour with your company.

Eye opening tour of Asian cuisine

A very worthwhile tour of the local Chinese culture and culinary landscape. Unlike other food tours that can easily entertain by presenting varied ethnic foods, this tour met the challenge of experiencing just one, yet was captivating in describing the complexity of what authentic Chinese food can offer. The neighborhood alone was a sensory experience. I wouldn't recommend for kids and young teens, but otherwise one of the most gratifying cultural experiences I've had in NYC.

Whenever I have visitors to NYC I schedule a food tour and have always had a wonderful experience. Sadly I have been on every tour they offer, so hope more are added!
