Good food with an entertaining guide

We arrived early and our guide, Bert, was there to meet us and gave us a quick rundown of what we would be doing before taking us up to our first tasting. When the group was assembled he gave us a description of the food on offer and would answer any questions we had and then it was on to the next stop. He set a nice relaxed pace which allowed plenty of time to chat with fellow diners. The restaurants were very good and the service was excellent. Bert was entertaining and knowledgeable about the food, the area and its history. At the end Bert made sure we all knew where we were going and gave directions if we were unsure. It was a wonderful way spend a few hours and will recommend to any of my friends visiting New York

We did the Chinatown tour this past weekend. Our tour guide was Bert. He was a wealth of knowledge and my group of 8 loved him. We have down several other tours and we have always been very pleased with Food of New York tours.

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 !!!

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.

It was a blistering day (August) and our guide told us he was adjusting w/ more inside time and less walking. Teen daughter & I both enjoyed ourselves enormously - lots of fantastic food, atmosphere, history. Come hungry!

Bert our tour guide was great. He was fun, enjoyable, and informative. My husband & I would have never figured out where to go to eat...I'm sure we would have missed Out on the remarkable food we ate . Next trip we definitely will put these restaurants on our "again" list. Thanks Bert, you did a GREAT job.

Hot time in Chinatown

Our tour happened during the heat wave so we were glad that we were mostly inside in the air conditioned restaurants! Our guide Burt was great! He was funny, informative, courteous, and kept us in the shade as much as possible when we were outside. I learned a lot about the area and I know we'll be going back. Especially to a "concealed" bar that he showed us. The food was delicious and I can't even begin to pick a favorite from what we ate. This was our third food tour (previous tours were Greenwich Village and Chelsea Market) and I would rate this one possibly the highest of all so far. As luck would have it, we were only five on the tour so it was "cozy" and very nice.

Excellent in every aspect!

Not only did we have delicious food but very interesting learning about the culture. Our guide Raheem was superb! I was traveling with my 17 yr. old granddaughter and she enjoyed the day as much as I did. If I would have had more time, I would have booked one of the other tours as well. Highly recommended!
