Raheem is a terrific guide...and I'm desperately jealous that we don't have a dim sum place as good as Dim Sum Go Go near us. Great tour, good walk, a lot of tasty food!

Fabulous food, wonderful guide

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!

Chinatown Tour a Good Decision

While I don't usually bother to contribute reviews, this tour was exceptionally worthwhile. The food was very good and of sufficient quantity, Raheem's commentary entertaining and informative, the walking was easy, and the seated dining was comfortable.

Well worth the time and expense!

My mother and I recently took a weeklong trip to Manhattan. The Chinatown Food and Culture Tour was, most certainly, a highlight, if not THE highlight, of both of our experiences. Rahim, our tour guide, was amazing. He was personable and knowledgeable; he made sure he talked individually to every member of our tour group, and he was a veritable wealth of information about the area. Then there was the food! Absolutely delicious - everything was fantastic! It was a wonderful experience, trying new foods from authentic Chinatown restaurants. The peking duck in particular was phenomenal. If you have the chance to take this tour, I highly recommend it. It's an amazing experience!

Exceeded my expectations

While my husband and I visit NYC often, we always seem to visit the same old places. I read an article about a walking tour of Chinatown and signed up immediately as a surprise Valentine's Day present for my husband. It was a huge hit, in no small part because of our exceptional tour guide, Raheem. I plan on signing up for all the tours offered and I expect to be just as happy at the end of each one. While we're certainly not experts on Chinatown, after this tour, we'll definitely feel more comfortable exploring on our own. Thanks, Raheem!! See you soon......

thx Raheem for this great tour in the Chinatown area. Got to taste the original pekin duck, which was excellent.

Also the new dessert was fantastic. You must keep in the tour as ending!

Suggest older people take the daytime tour as spicy Chinese food late is hard on us old ones.

We are native New Yorkers and frequent Chinatown about once every month. This was an amazing tour! We learned many facts that we never knew and experienced restaurants that were all new to us. The guide was professional, enthusiastic, and a real gem!!! Great time was had by ALL!!
