Great look into Chinatown and fantastic guide!

My wife and I took the Chinatown tour with Bert June 27th, and had a wonderful time. We were impressed with his knowledge of the area and culture, and completely enjoyed the food tastings. Bert was enthusiastic and made the day fun for everyone, we felt like we were being guided by a long time friend. We have now gained the confidence we were looking for to further explore Chinatown on our own, and thank Bert and Foods of NY Tours for their excellent service. If you have the opportunity, don't think twice take the tour!

this might be the best tour I have been on! I didn't expect to love the food or learn so much. Our guide was outstanding. He made the tour the best experience in NYC. I will use this tour company again and again. I would recommend this to my friends and family. The tour guide answered questions and made sure everyone was comfortable. There is a lot of walking and he constantly kept track of our group and never left anyone behind even with one person having an injured knee. I have been with other tour companies that talked at you but this company is different! If you have the chance, you should go.

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!

The Chinatown tour was wonderful. Our tour guide Bert was informative and genuine - he never seemed to be blatantly reading from a script like the guides on some tours. We moved at a relaxed pace, and all the food was delicious. The dumplings at Dim Sum Go Go, duck at Peking Duck House, and roti canai at a Malaysian restaurant new to the tour were all delicious. I would go bak to any of the restaurants we stopped at again, and want to do another neighborhood tour next time we're in the city and have a free day.

A real eye-opener

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour leader. We now know much more about Chinese immigration into the US but also know some good places to eat, what the food is and how it should be prepared. Many members of the group commented that we were visiting places that we would never have found on our own. The addition of a Malaysian restaurant was a good move.

Went on this tour with Bert - it was amazing! It was so much fun - in addition to having LOTS of excellent food - Bert was a great tour guide. Lots of interesting information on a less accessible neighborhood, and really fun insights. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

I probably would never have taken this tour if it had not been recommended by a couple who were on another tour that we took. I'm so glad we did! The food was amazing and Raheem was engaging and fun. I highly recommend this tour!

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.

I went on the tour with my fiancee and visiting family and we all had a great time. The guide knew what he was talking about regarding the food, culture, sights and had a great rapport with all of the restaurant staff. We all learned so much, enjoyed the food and had a nice time together. We will definitely be back for other tours!
