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.

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!

Fabulous tour guides! One was training but you would never know it. Great intro to Chinatown and a peak into the history of the city I never knew. Highly recommend! Honestly, it was one of the highlights from my trip to New York. :)

did this tour with friends and had a great time, we learned alot about the neighborhood, the history of the immigrants and the food culture. Our guides were fun, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. The food was eceptional and there was plenty of it. After the tour we went on our own and explored the area on our own. I would definately reccommend the tour of Chinatown.
