Come hungry!

This was our second food tour with Raheem and he was amazing, as usual. We did this tour at night, which I would highly recommend. It was an entirely different perspective of Chinatown without the usual heavy crowds. The food was so delicious. In fact, we returned to Dim Sum Go Go two days later for breakfast and, in addition to the dishes we had on the tour, we also ordered new items. All of them were superb. I'd highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic way to see Chinatown
Sat, Mar 28  10:30 AM Helenpparker Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We had done the Greenwich Village tour the previous day and so knew what to expect. Raheem was a great tour guide. He was very entertaining but also very knowledgable about the area which made the tour for us. The eating places had obviously been chosen with care and it was all very organised and worked smoothly. Every place we went to the food was absolutely delicious. It snowed during our tour but most of our time was spent inside so this didn't matter. Can't recommend the tour or Raheem as a guide highly enough.

Our tour guide, Hassim, was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very charismatic. He made the tour most enjoyable. The restaurants we stopped at were all excellent...welcoming and prepared for our visit. Each stop was unique but representative of a certain aspect of Asian cuisine. Everyone in our party enjoyed the tour. Even though I am a native New Yorker, I learned more about China Town than I expected.

LIke having your favorite nephew show you his city

This was a birthday trip for my granddaughter turning 18 in May. 4 nights, 2 shows, all the sights & on trip home I asked her what was her favorite: "oh the tour of Chinatown, I just loved that". Our 3 sit down meals were wonderful and I LOVED the Peking ducks sliced tableside - impressive & delicious. Sure broadens what I will order at a Chinese restaurant - dumplings for sure - hope our Chinese restaurants don't 'texas-ize' the way they make them here. We definitely got our money's worth in food, alone! Our guide was so personable and our small group of 15 made the experience perfect. The Chinatown tour is a MUST do for a true New York visit.

I booked this tour for my boyfriend and I because we love food and our city and this was beyond our expectations. Our tour guide, Raheem, was extremely informative and very engaging. I would do this tour again, but i'd like to experience the others now!

Who knew touring my own city would be so fun!

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Chinatown tour with Bert. The food and hospitality were excellent and we really loved learning about the history of this part of the city. We plan on taking every tour they offer! Thank you for a great experience!

Wonderful Food Adventure

Despite the size of the group, Bert, the guide, knew everyone's name within the first few minutes and was passionate about his work, food and meeting people. All four food places (Go Go Dim Sum, Peking Duck House, West New Malaysian and the egg tart bakery) provided excellent services, high quality food and substantive servings. My first Food of NY Tour and will not be my last.

Fabulous Chinatown Food Tour
Sat, Feb 21  10:30 AM tlsjkm Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
My husband, son and I had a fabulous time on Saturday on the Foods of NY Chinatown Food Tour! Our guide, Bert was wonderful! He had us all laughing and learning and we tried many delicious treats throughout Chinatown. Bert is extremely knowledgeable about the area and kept all of us interested and entertained! The peking duck was the highlight of the tour…yummy! We have been on almost all of the Foods of New York Tours and this one has by far the most food. Definitely come hungry!!
