Our tour guide was very informative. The restaurants and food were fantastic. We went back to the Peking Duck for dinner - well worth the money.

Very Accomodating

Accommodated all customers / clients -- even with allergies / food restrictions. Great food / great talks about food preparation as well as historical information of the area. Fun to sit down to eat and chat with the other guests. No strenuous walking. We will highly recommend to all our friends.

Our tour guide was Bert, and he knew his stuff! His presentation was fun, the history was great and the food....oh, man, the food!! Come hungry for sure. (Or come hungover...we were, and it was the perfect cure!) Also, there were so many places on the list we couldn't visit (but learned about) so we already have a "to-do" (to eat?) list for our next trip to NYC. Bottom Line: Worth every penny. Doooo it!

Awesome Chinatown Tour!

My husband and I took the Chinatown tour, which was fabulous. I was full by the end of our 2nd stop! We had a really nice variety of food, and learned a lot about the restaurants that we went to. I highly recommend this tour.

I would love it if the tour company would add a variation of the Chinatown tour that would go to some of the more exotic places in Chinatown. While I really enjoyed the places we stopped in, there are lots of small Chinatown shops that I would be to intimidated to go into on my own (you know, the kind of places that have things like duck legs hanging in the windows!). I would also love to see a food tour that would stop at a bunch of different ethnic places - such as afghan food, ethiopian food, vietnamese food, turkish food, etc. - rather than the fairly "average" places that the majority of the tours go to.

Overall, the quality of the tour, and the food on the tour, and the tour guide, was fabulous and we really enjoyed it! We would just like to see more variety of ethnicities in the tour choices, for those of us who would like to try some new things.

A must do !!!

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 !!!
