Foods of NY tours loyal customer

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.

We come to NY, one time a year...we have been on all of the food tours that have been available. They are always so much fun and we learn about the area from an excellent guide.

Highly recommend

A Great Day In Chinatown

Our tour guide (R), as all your tour guides was very knowledgeable and knew things about the area that I totally was unaware of. Having been born and grown up less than a dozen blocks from the meeting place I was amazed at certain facts and information he presented. He was very clear, extremely considerate of the entire group and easy to follow. Made it a wonderful day in frigid temperature.

Our total group was a a mix of young and old,locals and tourist. The guide was great. He was full of info and dynamic. It was different than our past tours as we sat in the restirants and are. since it was cold outside this was a plus. I would suggest this tour to anyone who isn't afraid of eating GREAT Chinese food.

Wonderful food tour of vibrant Chinatown
Fri, Oct 31, 14   10:30 AM Eileenoflynn Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Really enjoyed the food tour of Chinatown. Our guide, Raheem was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The variety of foods was superb from the delicious dim sum to the mouthwatering dessert course. We learned quite a bit about the neighborhood that a typical tourist walk through would never reveal. Since returning home we have recommended the tour to all of our friends. Well done! Full marks from two teachers!
