Excellent introduction to New York

We booked this tour on for our first night in NY visiting from the UK. Even though we had jet lag we were so glad we went ! Our guide Rahim was so knowledgeable about Chinatown and New York in general . We visited 3 restaurants and ate some of the best Chinese food I've ever tasted . The group were friendly and it's a great way to swap stories and experiences with other holiday makers ! Thoroughly recommend a food tour with this company you will not regret it !!

It was brilliant fun

The tour was the best bit of our trip to NYC according to my kids. We all loved it. A great combination of interesting information and history with excellent food. Rash was an excellent leader and really good with everyone but especially my kids. I've done the tour twice now and would thoroughly recommend a third visit.

We loved all the food. There was plenty to eat. Dim Sum, Peking Duck, Malaysian curry with roti, and an egg custard tart. It was fun to go through back alleys and hear some interesting stories. Recommend to anyone and everyone.

I live in NYC and have taken the Foods of NY Tours many times. It's practically my go-to activity when I have visitors in town. I can't say it enough -- these tours are AMAZING. Our tour guide was great, as always. The restaurants were carefully selected and the cultural topics discussed were interesting and kept the audience engaged. It's a must-do when you're in town!

Excellent tour, and a lot of food!

I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide, Raheem, is knowledgeable and friendly. He pointed out many buildings and places of interest as we strolled around Chinatown. He was very well-versed in the history of the area. From his stories it's clear he's spent time in Asia, too, so he knows what is authentic and what traditions or foods came about in the melting pot.

The food was terrific. They aren't kidding when they tell you to arrive hungry. All of the food was freshly prepared and delicious. Lots of variety.

One thing that speaks to not only this tour, but the tour company itself, is that most of the people on this tour had done either this or other tours with the same company. Many people had done multiple tours with this company. After the Chinatown tour I understand why. I plan to do another tour with Foods of New York tours the next time I'm in NYC.

Best tour ever!

Our guide (Raheem) was hilarious, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and was SUPERB at his job! All the food tried was amazing - in fact the Peking duck was one of the culinary highlights of our trip. We had never tried dim sum before so this was a great way to be introduced to it! We were so full from all the food we had (much more than I'd anticipated) that we even skipped dinner! The amount of food served was very generous and delicious! Thanks for the wonderful tour, food, and out of this world guide!!! #raheemrocks (haha!)

Best Time Ever!

I have been on several historical tours in other cities but this food tour of Chinatown was my first food tour. My family and I thought that the tour was fantastic! Hands down out of 8 tour companies I've used this was the most professional, informative and just fun. This was due in large part to our guide Bert. He was by far the best guide we've ever had in any tour we've ever taken. He should train others because his ability to lead tours is superb.
