Great learning experience, lots of fun, and tasty!

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!!

FANTASTIC

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.

Raheem was out tour guide and he really made the tour exceptional. Warm, funny and extremely knowledgeable about both the history of a China Town and the food. This tour was the highlight of our trip and we will definitely be back to do other tours with the same company based on this one. Delicious Chinese food, great value and a terrific way to learn about this fascinating part of New York. A+++

Really enjoyed Chinatown Tour!

This is the 3rd tour from Foods of New York Tours (previously Greenwich Village and Chelsea/Meatpacking District) that we have done. We loved this one too! Our excellent tour guide, Bert, was extremely informative and knowledgeable of the area and restaurants. We really enjoyed every restaurant/plate of food we sampled and had we had the time on our holiday we would definitely have gone back to try some more dishes. Hopefully, next time we are in New York we will go back to Chinatown.

I highly recommend this tour.

Great culinary and cultural tour of New York's Chinatown. This is an area that we have not visited on our many trips to New York. Our guide, Bert, provided much insight on the area and the food. Well done!

Our guide really new his stuff and was so into what he was doing. It was such a great tour. Food was sensational and the information provided about its preparation even better. Couldnt recommend more highly, from the dumplings to the Peking duck and Egg tarts. Just a whole heap of fun.

Fantastic tour and fantastic food

Our guide Raheem was excellent: friendly, knowledgeable, funny and professional. It was a great opportunity to get to see more of Chinatown than we would have on our own, and to get so many recommendations for places to eat - we've been back to two since. We tasted some amazing food on this tour, I'd definitely recommend it.
