We have done several food tours and they have all been great! The tour guide on this tour was friendly and very knowledgable. The choice of restaurants on this tour was fabulous. The food was delicious. We had a great time.

The host was very entertaining. He gave us some history, explained a little bit of the different cultures, backgrounds of the restaurants we went to and the ones we just walked past. The host had so much general knowledge of the area.

Next time I'm in New York I will do this tour again, Because the restaurants I was told are constantly being reviewed, and thus the tour will always change.

Love love love.

Amazing food with a side of history

My expectations of this food tour was to walk to a few restaurants and try their popular dishes. Not only did I get to try appetizers and smaller portions of popular dishes, I learned about the foods and a little history of Chinatown. Our tour guide, Raheem, broke it down when it came to pretty much everything. On top of that, he was very funny, entertaining and ready to answer any questions. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, and plan on booking another food tour on my next vacation.

My friend and I planned a NYC trip to celebrate a birthdat. I had been on a food tour during a previous trip to Puerto Rico and it was a highlight. After investigating food tour companies in NYC it became clear Foods of NY Tours were the best in the business. We were not disappointed! the Chinatown tour was amazing! The food was excellent, the guide Raheem was hilarious and knowledgeable, and the fellow attendees were friendly. Highly recommended for anyone visiting NYC!

Terrific tour -- enthusiastic leader and good food

Bert has a wonderful personality, he is very welcoming, and very knowledgeable. The fact that we had such a small group meant a very special experience. We got to interact more with each other and with Bert and his colleagues. We got to critique a new menu, for example. My only suggestion (especially because we visited the Tenement Museum the next day) is that maybe the various cuisines and food ways could be tied together. Since a Vietnamese menu is being introduced, maybe some explanation of how the various Asian cuisines may have affected each other.

Bert was wonderful - so knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. We learned so much we wouldn't have if we hadn't gone on this tour - my son (a major foodie) had an exceptional time and can't wait to get back to NYC and put his newfound knowledge to good use!

Going to Chinatown had no appeal to me but my friend wanted to try it, so I was willing to join her. So glad I did! What an interesting few hours. We learned history and about the culture along with enjoying some good food that otherwise I wouldn't have sampled on my own. This tour consisted of three sit-down tastings between walks and ended with a sidewalk dessert tasting. A great way to spend a few hours & see another part of the city.

Our tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable. The food was great and the experience enlightened us to eat at establishments that we would never have considered. I would recommend anyone who is looking to learn about the culture and behind the scenes of Chinatown to book this tour.
