The guide was excellent - very knowledgeable

I cannot say enough about the guide. He was very knowledgeable with the history, local customs/traditions and of course the food. The first two restaurants were great choices and the food was both exciting and fabulous. The third was not acceptable and another option should be chosen. The apothecary was interesting but the tea store was a waste of time.

We had a fabulous time getting to know the area of Chinatown. Our guide, Bert, was the best!! Dumplings were amazing and Bert's instructions on how they were made and how we should eat them added to his knowledge. Peking Duck to die for. Can't wait to sign up for our next adventure.

A new Yorker all my life . Went with some hesitation thinking I was a know-it-all about Chinatown and Food.

Given to me as a gift ,the tour was a great surprise . Bert was a most personable and knowledgable guide. Restaurant choice and food excellent and varied. Learned numerous tid-bits of trivial and historical information about Chinatown. Enjoyed interacting with many other interesting and friendly members of our tour group.

Highly Recommended.

Five Stars and an egg roll to Bert !

This is our third food tour of New York. We have enjoyed them all. Our tour guide, Bert, was fun and knowledgable The restaurants were wonderful. It was a 100 degree day in the city - we were a little hesitant - but Bert kept us cool, comfortable and laughing!! I would definately recommend this tour!

A New Vantage Point in Chinatown

We are native New Yorkers and frequent Chinatown about once every month. This was an amazing tour! We learned many facts that we never knew and experienced restaurants that were all new to us. The guide was professional, enthusiastic, and a real gem!!! Great time was had by ALL!!

Comprehensive, in-depth food tour of Chinatown
Mon, May 28, 12   12:00 PM Legalbeck Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Interesting, in-depth tour of Chinatown with great food: 5 different types of dim sum; pekin duck; Cantonese eggplant and fried rice. We were stuffed by the end. Enjoyed the antidotal stories about Chinatown. Liked our tour guide: quirky (which we like) with a nice sense of humor. Two points for improvement. The tour seemed a little rushed (wish we could have slowed down) and the tour guide could have dressed a little less casual (like no flip flops). Otherwise, a great tour. And appreciated the allergy accommodations.

Great tour and delicious meals

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour, the tour guide, and the food. What a wonderful, historic area.

But, unfortunately, I am alergic to MSG and it was obviously included in one or more of the meals and I suffered a severe bout of migraine and vomitting for two days. I would still recommed this tour, but would caution the tour guide to alert the group about MSG being included in the meals.

Fun Afternoon

Our tour guide, Bert, is the reason my friend and I had so much fun on this tour. He was a wonderful host. There are not as many stops on this particular tour, but there is a lot of food. My 2 favorites were the dim sum and the Peking duck stops. The rice and eggplant were ok, but not the best and the tea stop was just not good at all, but then I don't like sweetened tea and this tea was sweetened. My friend liked the tea stop, so it's just a matter of sweet vs. nonsweet tea. The shopping stop was ok if you're into tea pots, cups and herbs, otherwise it was a waste of time. The cat was nice though. I had fun and did learn a lot of the history of Chinatown which I had never learned before. This was my 5th Foods of New York tour and while it's not the first tour I would recommend to my friends, I'm glad I went on it.
