Best food tour ever!

The Chinatown Tour was the best food tour I've ever been on. The food was plentiful, delicious and varied. But the best part of our tour was our guide Burt. I learned so much about Chinatown, the food culture, the history and the traditions because Burt kept things interesting. His sense of humor is also a big plus. He is an asset to the tour company and the next time I'm in town I'll be sure to book another tour with him as my guide.

Bert gave a wonderful tour with lots of info about the food we were eating, the history of the area and lots of tidbits about other places to check out in the area. I'm looking forward to going back to Chinatown to try some more of the great suggestions.

CHINA TOWN TOUR 10/20/12

My sister & I took the tour as part of our vacation to NYC. Burt/Bert (sp) was our guide and he was AWESOME! He took such great care of everyone, made sure our every need was taken care of; he told us great stories, kept the tour moving, it never got boring, the food was fantastic, and we LOVED the egg custard at the end. We also met the lovliest people in our group; the weather was perfect and all in all it was a great time and great memory. For me the only bad thing was seeing the ducks head hanging off the platter LOL but other than that I would HIGHLY recommend the tour to anyone I know going to NYC. Thank you so much!

BURT ROCKS CHINATOWN!!!

My son and I took the Chinatown Walking Tour led by Burt and enjoyed every minute of it! He is very knowledgeable and made the experience a lot of fun. The food was excellent (so good that we went back to Dim Sum GoGo the next day!) and the portions were extremely generous. The Peking Duck House is an experience in itself. The duck is carved tableside and is to die for! What I would give for that duck carcass now that I'm home! This tour is worth every penny spent and more! Thank you, Burt for making this Florida girl's first trip to NYC complete!

I loved the Food Tour of Greenwich Village and thought this would be as good. It's OK, interesting, not a waste of time or money, but no where near as good as Greenwich Village. Not enough variety. How about tasting different teas or trying some exotic fruit at one of the street vendors?

Excellent Guide, Tour & Food
Sat, Jul 28, 12   10:30 AM SusanFly Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This tour was recommended by a neighbor who has done lots of NYC food tours. It was definitely the wonderful experience she said it would be. Bert was a terrific guide. He obviously loves the area, the food and his job. We totally enjoyed tooling around Chinatown, learning about the culture and eating the authentic and very tasty dishes served at our various stops.

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.
