My husband and I went on this tour on August 22nd ; this was our second time together in NYC and we decided we wanted to experience part of Manhattan using a guided tour .

Turns out this was an excellent decision !

Our tour guide ( sorry , we can't remember his name ) was very knowledgeable and very friendly;he shortly made everyone in our group feel comfortable with each other !!!

He showed us parts of Chinatown we would have NEVER found if exploring on our own; he was entertaining and could answer to any given question of our lively group !!

The "meals" were excellent : two of the restaurants where we got to sit down are listed by the Michelin and Zagat Guides !!! The Pecking Duck was a gorgeous experience , that duck was to die for !! Also those dumplings we tasted at Dim Sun Go Go were delicious !

( The only "course" I did not like that much was the "sweet roll" that we ate as dessert ... but the other people in our group enjoyed it - someone had a double "serving" ).

I would HIGHLY recommend this food tour to everyone - even NY citizens !! and we would do this tour again in a heartbeat !!!

I am a New Yorker born and bred. I have always held a fascination for Chinatown, and this tour was a great way to learn and get to know it. I loved that this tour had a little bit of everything: food, walking, culture and the history of the neighborhood. Thank you "Foods of New York" for organizing this tour so thoroughly.

Our guide Bert, was beyond AWESOME...we had so much fun...Bert knew everything about every street, every shop and every restaurant we were taken to....nevermind the fact the guy is just Fun! At first we balked a little at the $65.00 price tag...we walked away saying we got sooooo much bang for our buck its not even funny. We were treated like we were family, laughed, ate, made new friends and had a blast. Bringing everybody we know on one of these tours!

We booked this tour while we were having so much fun on the East Village/Soho tour a couple of days before. This was excellent as well! It was a real, and FUN, educational experience. :)

What a great way to spend 3 hours! Our tour guide was Burt, and he was fabulous! Well informed, funny, entertaining and very personable. We were lucky to have him! The food was delicious - we loved all the dim sum we tried. The sauces were delicious! The Peking duck was superb! Really nicely done! We loved the stories Burt told us about the history of Chinatown - and lots of interesting titbits in between! The dessert and tea were very good. This is a fun tour and by the end of it, you will be full and satisfied.
