I CANT WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!

OUR GUIDE WAS FABULOUS, (HIS NAME ESCAPES ME AT THE MOMENT BUT HE WAS PROFESSIONAL IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD, FUN TO BE WITH, TOTALLY INFORMED AND KNOWLEGEABLY AND PERSONABLE TO THE MAX!)THE FOOD VARIABLE AS WELL AS HOW WE CONSUMED SAME, EITHER ON THE STREET OR IN A WELL PLANNED SUCCESSION OF DELIGHTS, WAS PERFECT AND INVENTIVE TO SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN NEW YORK AND THOUGHT OF CHINATOWN AS BEING BOTH INTIMIDATING AND OVERWHELMINGLY CONFUSING ALL THESE YEARS. . I NOW FEEL VERY INFORMED AND I HAVE A MUCH BETTER HANDLE ON WHAT THE AREA HAS TO OFFER IN BOTH A CULTURAL AS WELL AS EPICUREAN EXPERIENCE. I CAN ONLY SING PRAISES TO OUR GUIDE FOR ENLIGHTENING ME, HE LET ME ROLL WITH THE 'FOODIE' KNOWLEDGE I'VE ACQUIRED OVER THE YEARS AND WAS NOT CONDESENDING OR OFFENDED BY MY INPUT. HE WAS A TRULY GREAT GUIDE AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO FRIENDS AND MYSELF GOING ON ANOTHER TOUR AND/OR THE SUSHI DINNER WITH HIM. ALL IN ALL, IT WAS A SUPURB EXPERIENCE THAT I WOULD DO AGAIN IN OTHER VENUES. I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO VOICE MY OPINION AND LOOK FORWARD TO BEING A CUSTOMER FOR A LONG TIME TO COME. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TYPE OF TOURING NOT JUST TO FOODIES BUT FOR THOSE FROM OUT OF TOWN WHO WISH TO LEARN ABOUT SPECIFIC AREAS UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. THIS IS FAR FROM SITTING ON A DOUBLE DECKER TOUR BUS, THIS IS THE REAL DEAL WITH SOME TASTY PLATES AS A TREAT. THANKS AGAIN!! JUDY WILLNER

Quite an unusual selection of food. Bert, our guide, was fun and informative; not just about the food but also the culture and history of the area.

Great Tour of the Chinatown area

Bert was a great guide - had lived in the area so knew the streets and restaurants well. I really enjoyed the walk around the neighbourhood and the history about the streets. The restaurant doing the duck was my least favorite, wasn't a fan of the skin, fat and meat all being served together. The wrap or pancake was doughy. The dim sum and curry was great. I would have preferred a stop at the egg roll place where its served in a crepe. Overall the tour was great!

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 !!

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.
