Fun in Chinatown

Raheem was very knowledgeable and personable. It was really great to experience dim sum, as we have never gone to a dim sum restaurant and were unaware of what it involved. Also learning about Peking Duck was a lot of fun and something we had sever had before. The Malaysian restaurant was also interesting and somewhere we might try again in the future. The dessert was amazing and completely unexpected.

We have gone on all of your food tours and always bring the booklets with us when we go to New York so we can visit some of our favorite finds.

Very educational tour with a well informed guide

Although this tour is a bit more expensive than other food tours, it is well worth it. We had food served to us in 3 different restaurants while we were seated. Most delicious was the dim sum experience and the Peking duck experience. We will go back to those restaurants and the others that are recommended in the program brochure handed out to us. The 3rd restaurant was most educational -- a Malaysian restaurant. We will go back to try new things. Our "dessert" was a stand-up affair with samples passed on a tray.

The guide's knowledge as we walked the streets and stopped by shops was outstanding.

This was a very enjoyable experience. The food was wonderful. The tour host was very pleasant and knowledgeable. It was well paced with adequate stops. I selected this tour specifically because of the three sit-down meals. They didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this tour to both tourists and locals. You just don't get this experience by driving through Chinatown on a tour bus!

Who knew Chinatown could be that much FUN!

this might be the best tour I have been on! I didn't expect to love the food or learn so much. Our guide was outstanding. He made the tour the best experience in NYC. I will use this tour company again and again. I would recommend this to my friends and family. The tour guide answered questions and made sure everyone was comfortable. There is a lot of walking and he constantly kept track of our group and never left anyone behind even with one person having an injured knee. I have been with other tour companies that talked at you but this company is different! If you have the chance, you should go.

Best Food Tour Ever!

We did the Chinatown tour with Bert as it was the only tour open for the date we were looking. Wow, I was incredibly surprised by the tour. It was by far the best food tour we have done and believe me we have done many. Bert was very knowledgeable and took us to some amazing places. The food was delicious and we were sat at each restaurant and served large portions at each. I have never done a food tour where you truly felt like you had a four course meal. I can't say enough about Bert and the tour he gives. He clearly loves what he does and it shows on this tours!

Saw a side of Chinatown I have never seen before

This was my 6th time visiting nyc from michigan, and my 5th food tour with this company. I was so glad when my teens wanted to take this tour because I always get turned around in Chinatown and don't know where to go or what to eat. WE LOVED every minute of it. It was informative, relaxing the food was amazing, and we saw a good chunk of chinatown. our tour guide Burt (who I had for the Greenwich Village tour) was very informative, and fun! The kids loved him.

Great food and great tour guide
Fri, May 23, 14   12:00 PM richellep Female Under 20 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The Chinatown tour was wonderful. Our tour guide Bert was informative and genuine - he never seemed to be blatantly reading from a script like the guides on some tours. We moved at a relaxed pace, and all the food was delicious. The dumplings at Dim Sum Go Go, duck at Peking Duck House, and roti canai at a Malaysian restaurant new to the tour were all delicious. I would go bak to any of the restaurants we stopped at again, and want to do another neighborhood tour next time we're in the city and have a free day.

Informative, delicious cultural tour

Bert, our friendly, upbeat, VERY knowledgeable tour guide set the tone for a wonderful food, cultural experience in Chinatown.I could have eaten dumplings all day, but then would have missed my first time eating Peking Duck. Enjoyed learning the process of preparing the dish. More time there rather than the Malaysian restaurant would have been preferred. Dessert delicious. Loved learning about the history of Chinatown. My group of 4 friends agreed we would do this tour again.
