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.

We booked the evening tour. The guide Rahim was very funny and talkative. We were about 12 participants (4 groups) which led to quite interesting conversations. The food was yummy and interesting – as were the back alley stories/stores we passed on our way. One highlight was the Malaysian Restaurant. Pity, we did not have the time to try out all recommended restaurants on our vacation – maybe next time.

Wonderful Chinatown Experience With Raheem

Our tour was Labor Day Weekend Saturday and Raheem was our guide. We were thrilled to have Raheem again as we had taken one of the Greenwich Village tours with him a few years ago. He had us laughing and learning the whole time. The tour has some great stops on it and there is a nice variety of food types and establishments visited. Raheem also points out additional places to check out along the tour route. The food easily replaces a meal and we left feeling comfortable full. We definitely have a new favorite dim sum place after having been on this tour. Absolutely, positively recommend this tour.

Raheem was a great guide. Very enthusiastic and knowledgable about the area and food. Thought only one Peking duck wrap would have been sufficient and it may have brought the price down a bit . Wasn't impressed with the Malaysian food stop, however. Inspite of this, I still recommend the tour.

My father (visiting from Miami) and I took this tour on a balmy Friday morning and were fortunate enough to have Bert as our guide. He was phenomenal! Extremely informative and highly engaging. Would highly recommend for both locals and tourists.

Whenever I have visitors to NYC I schedule a food tour and have always had a wonderful experience. Sadly I have been on every tour they offer, so hope more are added!
