Fantastic overview of Chinatown with yummy food!

All-in-all a great experience. Our guide was excellent and really knew a lot of the local history and eateries. The only let down was the desert course, but that's because I don't have a sweet tooth. The dim-sum was the best I've ever had. I would recommend going on the tour near the beginning of your holiday to make the most of going back to Chinatown to sample more of the food.

We had a very engaging guide, Ramish, who had a good knowledge base. Food was tasty, a nice variety and adequate amount.

Our Chinatown Tour, with Bart as our guide, was an informative, delicious and filling, and fun-filled experience! Bart is extremely knowledgable about the area and the food. He is also very funny! To top it off, we couldn't have had a more beautiful Spring day. I would enthusiastically recommend this tour to everyone!

The lesson on cooking and serving Peking Duck was new to most of us. Wonderful. The dumplings...wow! Who knew that they could be so light and tasty...and so varied.

I have been on about 7 or 8 different food tours, but must say that this was the best!

The tour was quite a bit of fun. Loved Bert. I must say, I was surprised that many of the people on the tour weren't particularly adventurous eaters. But that's nothing to do with the tour, that's just people. The food was fantastic and I will definitely return to the dumpling restaurant. My only hesitation about recommending it to friends would be that it seems more suited to slower-paced people. I'm a bit of a whirlwind! Would love to take another tour when I'm in town again. I really appreciated the bits of neighborhood trivia and history. Thank you!

Great introduction to Chinatown - Highly recommend

This was my fourth Foods of NY tour and it stood out from the others because it had a distinct cultural aspect to it. I took my boyfriend who was visiting from out of town and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience because it was very informative and we had very good portions at each of the tastings. The time flew by fast and although it felt like we covered a lot of ground, we didn't really travel that far and we felt that the amount of time between tastings was just right and we did not feel rushed. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants an introduction to Chinatown.

This is my fifth Foods of New York tour and just like all the previous tours, this one did not disappoint. Bert was our very enjoyable and thoroughly knowledgeable guide. It always amazes me the wealth of knowledge the guides on all the tours impart about the food and history of their areas. This tour was a little different than the others in that the tastings took place inside and seated. We had dumplings at Dim Sum Go Go, Duck pancakes at the Peking Duck House, and roti canai (Malaysian flatbread) which was served with a delicious dipping sauce. I have to say the presentation and serving of the duck pancakes was the most impressive. Three roasted ducks (heads included) were brought out and carved right in front of us. The pancakes were then assembled and served on platters. We concluded the tour at Golden Manna Bakery with egg custard tarts that were still warm. If you enjoy food, learning the history of different sections of NYC or just want to spend 3 hours having a REALLY good time, I strongly suggest you sign up for any of the Foods of NY Tours!

I admit - I was nervous about eating food I thought I would never eat. But it was all so delicious. I even had second helpings of one course. Bert (our Tour Guide) was humorous, informative and made the whole tour relaxing and fun. I will definitely participate in another food tour when I visit New York. This was my first but definitely not my last.

We had a great time on our Chinatown food tour. Curt made it a good time. All of the stops and food were great but having curt there made it all the more fun. This was our second time. Our first was the Greenwich village tour which was great too. Highly recommend for all ages

Our guide Bert was charming and knowledgeable ! He was very considerate of everyone's needs.

The choices of restaurants and the care that was given to us was exceptionable. I can't wait to come back and try more of the suggestions. I have taken almost every tour this company has to offer and each one is memorable and worth mention to everyone ,who tells me they are coming to Manhattan
