Great food on an interesting visit

This was the second tour that we have done with Foods of New York, and we enjoyed it every bit as much. This tour was more food-oriented; it included three sit-down mini-meals, all of which were delicious and interesting. The meals were accompanied by useful explanations of the culinary traditions and the methods of preparation. Our tour guide, Bert, was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to; he welcomed questions and could usually answer them. He also led us through some of the streets and alleys of Chinatown, explaining the history of evolution of the neighborhood. He encouraged us to try some of the local delicacies, but he was kind enough to warn us about the strangeness of some of the flavors and textures -- forewarned was forearmed. The only thing I would have liked added was a recommendation of where to shop for local specialties -- linens, jewelry, gifts, etc. We would certainly recommend this tour, and we will do another tour with this company when we are back in New York City again.

We enjoyed the food and the guide Bert was superb. Will do it again sometime in the future...

We suggest in the future links to local hotel will benefit those that don't want to wake up early in the morning and take a bus to the meeting place.

Chinatown Food Tour with Bert

Recently went on the Chinatown Food with Bert and am happy to say it was the best food tour, out of three, I've taken in New York. Not only was the food amazing, but Bert was so funny and told many stories that made me not only appreciate all there was to eat, but also the history of this section of the city. I will definitely continue to do more tours and am hoping there is a way to get Bert as a guide again.

Despite appaling weather (the infamous October Snow storm)myself and my daughter had an entertaining and value for money morning. The guide was knowledgable, warm, humerous and helpful. The food we tasted was all of excellent quality and we were very impressed with the amounts offered (we couldn't manage it all!)

I would higly recommend friends travelling to New York take one of these tours.

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.

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
