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.

We met Bert at the dim sum restaurant. He guided us through the meals and the streets of Chinatown, taking us into places we never would have found (or entered) on our own, and telling us the history of Chinatown. It was obvious that he both knew and loved the area, the people, the culture, and especially the food. We enjoyed delicious dim sum (I went back the next day with friends to eat there again), superbly prepared and presented peking duck, a marvelous Malaysian dish (I lived in Malaysia many years ago and can attest to the authenticity of the food there), and even a delicious dessert (Asian sweets are not generally acceptable to American palates). I liked the filling, but the crust was absolutely to die for. Believe me, you WILL get enough to eat on this tour! We also visited a tea and Chinese medicine store -- we got food for the stomach and food for the soul. Thank you, Bert, for being such an excellent guide!

If you are a tourist or New York local and you love to try exotic new things, then the Chinatown Food and Culture walking tour is the perfect thing to do! The walking tour was full of great restaurants, amazing food and lots of fun! The tour guide seemed to know a lot about the history of Chinatown so we had many small discussions about how things got to where they are, the history of Chinatown and how the food is made interesting. Very good food, everything we ate and did was above or expectations! Don't worry about the idea of walking for two and a half hours because you won't! Stopping at restaurants to eat and sit is twenty minutes max, so it gives your legs time to rest. Everybody is friendly and the tour gives you a great opportunity to meet people from near and far!!

Went on this tour with Bert - it was amazing! It was so much fun - in addition to having LOTS of excellent food - Bert was a great tour guide. Lots of interesting information on a less accessible neighborhood, and really fun insights. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I probably would never have taken this tour if it had not been recommended by a couple who were on another tour that we took. I'm so glad we did! The food was amazing and Raheem was engaging and fun. I highly recommend this tour!

This was the best tour - tour guide was very knowledgeable on the area and the food and kept the tour interesting with anecdotal information on the sites. He was funny and kept it all light. The food was amazing and filling - definitely enough food to satisfy any hunger and food choices will satisfy any foodie. Definitely would recommend to anyone interested in learning about Chinatown in New York and trying authentic Chinese food somewhat off the beaten track. One restaurant you would definitely never find on your own as it is down a little alley. Do it - book now.
