This is my second experience with Food of New York tours. We have done the Greenwich Village tour and both are excellent. Bert was a fantastic tour guide. This tour was more of a "sit down" restaurant experience as compared to the outdoor walking Greenwich village tour. The walk through the park was great and gave us a flavor of the local culture.

My only concern is that we noticed that the Peking Duck House has a sanitation code rating of "C". This was not easily seen, and we would have not have eaten in this establishment if we had seen this.

This is our second food tour. I wasn't expecting the same because I thought it would be hard to beat last year's tour guide. Burt was an excellent guide, he was knowledgeable, and made it fun! Highly recommended.

Going to China without leaving the states.

I was pleasantly surprised that we would be sitting down in restaurants for the tastings, and not just a bite on the streets. Helpful if it's pouring out. There is some walking of course, but plenty of time in doors. Bert was a great guide and was very knowledgeable. I haven't been to Chinatown in years, but will be back soon, now that I know where to go.

The tour was fun, informational, and interesting. The tour guide was very informed and friendly and knew his stuff. He provided us with insight to the chinese culture along with the food and history of china town. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a good history of the chinese culture.

Really enjoyed the tour, and especially Bert our tour guide. We have taken all of the NYC Food tours, and personally the China Town tour was my least favorite. Had nothing to do with our guide, he was great! I just personally don't care for chinese dumplings or peking duck (two of the main courses)....but that's just me. I would recommend any of the NYC Food Tours. Great cultural experiences and a great way to see more of the city and visit places I would never venture out on my own to do.

My husband and myself were in NY for 6 days and I went on 8 tours in that time, the Chinatown tour was my favorite. Our tour guide, Bert was great. The tour had just the right mix of eating, walking and information about the area and the food we were tasting. I would enthusiastically recommend this tour with Bert of course he was the best!!

Our guide was called Burt and he was very good and the small group was nice and friendly.We learnt quite alot about the area and enjoyed tasting different foods in different restaurants, being told about how it was made and about the flavours etc too. We found the meeting place a bit tricky to find, maybe a map would help with the written instructions.

A great host shares the sights and flavors of a fascinating neighborhood. Take the tour, try new flavors, find the places the locals recommend, hear about the back stories of the area. Not much walking, lots of sit down time so it works no matter what the weather. Where else could you taste pork belly, and learn about the underbelly of the neighborhood? Watch a chef carve Pekin duck for you, while learning that a chef could be killed on the spot, if the Emperor was dissatisfied with his food? If you take this tour, be sure to ask who would pay $1700.00 per pound for ginseng, and what would such a person do with it?
