We had taken the Chinatown tour in November '14 & enjoyed it so much that we did it again in April '15. Bert did a great job both tours. Highly recommend! Lots of good food & interesting info about Chinatown.

Our tour guide Raheem was great. He was our guide on a previous tour so it was nice to see him again. He was very engaging and very knowledge about the neighborhood. This tour was different from the others, but certainly designed to fit the culture and neighborhood. We have done most of the other tours (few of them more than once!) and liked them much better, which is just personal preference. We were glad we finally took this tour as it was interesting to learn about the culture and try some different cuisine. These tours are a great way to see the city and its neighborhoods. Everyone we have recommended them to has also enjoyed them very much. We highly recommend them. Thank you for another great tour!! Looking forward to the next one!!

I really enjoyed the Chinatown Culinary and Culture tour. It was very interesting walking to the eateries and experiencing the varied culture. Food was great and a real stretch from what I am used to tasting. Outstanding tour guide and a great experience. I would do it again.

Delicious and Informative

My husband, a friend and I took the Chinatown food tour last Saturday. It was so much fun. The food was absolutely delicious with very generous portions. Our guide, Raheem, was knowledgeable and funny. He answered all of our questions and allowed us to go at our own pace. I learned so much about the preparation and history of authentic Chinese cuisine - especially Peking Duck. I enjoyed seeing Chinatown from an "insiders" perspective learning about Chinese immigration to America, the area's evolution over the years, and the secrets of Doyers Street. I especially enjoyed Raheem's knowledge of the area - everything from funeral traditions to Chinese Chess to Anthony Bourdain's favorite restaurant. Fascinating. I will definitely attending another Foods of NY tour next time I'm in town.

Fantastic way to see Chinatown

We had done the Greenwich Village tour the previous day and so knew what to expect. Raheem was a great tour guide. He was very entertaining but also very knowledgable about the area which made the tour for us. The eating places had obviously been chosen with care and it was all very organised and worked smoothly. Every place we went to the food was absolutely delicious. It snowed during our tour but most of our time was spent inside so this didn't matter. Can't recommend the tour or Raheem as a guide highly enough.

Fabulous Chinatown Food Tour

My husband, son and I had a fabulous time on Saturday on the Foods of NY Chinatown Food Tour! Our guide, Bert was wonderful! He had us all laughing and learning and we tried many delicious treats throughout Chinatown. Bert is extremely knowledgeable about the area and kept all of us interested and entertained! The peking duck was the highlight of the tour…yummy! We have been on almost all of the Foods of New York Tours and this one has by far the most food. Definitely come hungry!!

Our guide, Burt, was excellent. He took us off the beaten path to very interesting shops and restaurants. I learned a good deal of history of the area. The food was delicious and overall the tour was an excellent value
