Loved it!

Took the Chinatown tour, used tickets that were a gift. Our tour guide, rehiem, (sorry! Butchered your name) was great! Very knowledgable and comical!!! Had a blast and will look into taking another tour!! Learned a lot of things I never knew. As a New Yorker, we like to think we know it all so I was very Surprised by how much I really didn't know about NYC or steady Chinatown.

Tasty Chinese Treats, Brilliant Bert, and a Hawk

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring Chinatown on this tour. The food was excellent, and at times we felt like we were unmistakably in NYC, while others it genuinely felt as though we were in China. Bert was a phenomenal guide -- he was well-spoken, funny, and successfully made a bunch of strangers sitting around a yum cha table feel not awkward in the least. He was also extremely approachable and enthusiastically answered all our random questions about things we'd seen on our trip. Mostly, we thoroughly enjoyed learning about all the hidden gems we would otherwise have walked past. And we saw a hawk.

Excellent tour of Chinatown!! Went with our family and had a 7 month old with us. Our tour guide Raheem was amazing, gave us plenty of interesting fun facts without being boring. He really made the tour and our day great. There was so much food and it was all fantastic, each restaurant was very different!! Would highly recommend this tour, will definetly try another tour soon.

We had a great experience with the Chinatown food tour. Our guide,Rahim, was very entertaining. We were able to enjoy delicious food and also learn about the history behind the great dishes we were eating. On top of the fantastic food we also experienced an extremely interesting tour of The Chinatown neighborhood. We had a great time!

Delicious and insightful tour of Chinatown

Raheem made us feel welcome from the moment he greeted us at the door of our first, Dim Sum, stop. The dim sum choices were tasty and accompanied by cultural and culinary information. He carefully explained customs, food types and the local history while we dined as well as when we walked between locations. The Peking duck was sweet and succulent but challenging to eat in it's sauce laden wrap. The Malasian dessert seemed an odd way to end the tour, but the flaky "bread" was sweet and flakey but I found the curry sauce overpowering so I skipped it. All in all, I would definitely recommend this tour! I wish you also had a tour of a Little Italy - maybe next time.

Enjoyed Bert very much. Not as much history and architecture as some tours but that was due to the area and not Bert. He was terrific.

We had a great time. The food was fabulous. We went to places I would never had walked into on my own. Our guide, Raheem, was fun, knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour not only feeds you, but gives you a cultural and historical adventure. I highly recommend this tour, and all of the Foods of NY Tours.

Raheem: the best tour and dining guide anywhere!
Sat, Dec 5, 15   10:30 AM NanSutcliffe Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I was the only person in our group who had experienced Raheem and this tour before and I was even blown away! Foods were more plentiful and even more delicious this time (than 7or 8 years ago), all tasted or eaten inside this time, often seated, more historic details and anecdotes were offered this time and additional foods were given last week. Samples were generous and no tour guide can be more courteous, warm, and enthusiastic than Raheem! The ladies new to the tour loved it as much as I....a great cultural experience which enhanced our impressions of the Chinese culture as well. Thanks for a delightful experience!
