Not as interesting as the Greenwich Village tour

The Guide was personable and courteous. I don't think the value was there for this tour as compared to the other Foods of NY tours. It was interesting, just not awesome.

Take your time, there's no Rush

Our eating experiences were not rushed and a clean bathroom was available at most of the sites. Enjoyed the cultural and history commentary throughout our tour. Our guide, Bert, added to the total experience because of his personal connection to Chinatown having lived there several years. Really appreciated having other small eateries pointed out and what their specialties were, so when we come back we will try to experience some new food places.

After the tour, we were given suggestions on museums, temples, tea stores and other parks to visit in Chinatown.

Thanks, Bert!

Excellent, knowledgable and entertaining guide quite diligent in delighting the group with historical facts and gossip. Great choice of places to eat with good variety of menu selections. Well organized, timed and executed. Great way to meet new people in a dining environment.

We were greated enthusiastically and was introduced to all the participants. Our tour guide Raheem was fantastic. He was a fun person who was very knowledgeable about the area and the food. I would highly recommend this tour. This was our second tour and I can say it will not be our last. Looking forward to our next one.

Raheeme leads

First of all I apologize if I spelled Raheem's name wrong. It was a hot day so standing in one spot for too long would really suck and Raheem made sure to keep us moving and always made sure we were in the shade whenever possible. He was very knowledgeable about the area and history of the area. He had something to say about every corner every store I think could have given us a lesson about the curb if someone asked. He spoke in a clear crisp manor which I appreciate cause I wear hearing aids. Everything was planned ahead and he always made sure the next place was ready for our group to enter. He had his information to give but always took the time to listen to a question and had an answer with more info then could b believed. He was polite, informative and an all round nice guy. We will b back and we will bring friends. I will request him because of his excellence. Thanks again

I appreciated the intelligence and enthusiasm of our guide Bert. He provided many interesting tidbits about life in Chinatown past and present. I particularly enjoyed Columbus Square and the candy shop. All the meals were high quality and diverse. The pace was comfortable and again enhanced by a considerate guide. A birthday presentation was arranged for me in a delightful manner. Many thanks!
