Our guide, Burt, was excellent. He took us off the beaten path to very interesting shops and restaurants. I learned a good deal of history of the area. The food was delicious and overall the tour was an excellent value

My husband and I had a great time touring Chinatown. The food on each stop was unique and delicious. The dim sum at Dim Sum Go Go was so good and the XO sauce is not to be missed! My favorite dish was the Roti Canai at the Malaysian restaurant. Yum!!! Our tour guide, Raheem, was absolutely wonderful. With a friendly attitude and delightful humor, he kept us entertained with interesting stories about the people and events that made Chinatown what it is today. Raheem also explained the origin and preparation techniques of the foods we were enjoying. I highly recommend this tour and would happily take any tour led by Raheem!!

Rahim was a great tour guide for the Chinatown Food walking tour. I received two tour tickets as a gift and brought my boyfriend along. We both enjoyed it greatly! The stops we made were well timed and it was a good amount of food. The food itself was varied and all delicious (peking duck was our favorite!) and Rahim had interesting things to tell us about each place we stopped. The group size of about 10 people was perfect.

Would definitely take another tour with Foods of New York Tours. Thank you!

I have been on all but 1 of their (foods of ny tours) food tours & have always been satisfied, if not thrilled! However, this particular tour left me (and my group) wanting. For the higher cost, i expected more, but in fact received less!

Having only 3 stops i assumed there would be more food. This dim sum was so delicious but only 3 little pieces and 1 other bun, left us wanting more. The Malaysian restaurant really rushed us out & only gave us 1 roti with curry sauce. The peking duck stop gave us the most to eat. All the food was good but with fewer stops it should have been more than small tastings.

I actually would not recommend this tour unless they provide more food for the extra $ this tour costs.

We had old friends who currently live in Boulder visiting for the week and thought a walking/food tour of Chinatown would be fun. As it turned out we were a very small group....my husband was ill and another group of 8 cancelled due to a death in the family, so we were only 5 total. Despite the weather, which was cold and windy, we had THE BEST time. Our tour leader, Bert, was so personable and knowlegeable. We really felt like we were with a friend, not just a tour leader. The choice of restaurants was excellent, the food really top-notch. We especially liked the background info, both about the food prep and the history of Chinatown. Our one wish was that we had more time to listen to Bert as he seemed to be so well informed about the neighborhood.

I'm looking forward to repeating this particular tour with my husband. i think he would really get such a kick out of it! I will enthusiastically recommend it to friends and out of town visitors! I also look forward to taking other tours with this company. Great job!!

Bert was our guide. He was excellent. The food was also excellent and a good representation of the neighborhood. Lots of history and local lore. Enjoyed the tour very much.
