Ok tour not good guide

Our guide got over emotional when a person captured some pigeons at the start of the tour. He talked about it the whole time. Almost cried and kept talking about them being hurt. Someone may have been relocating them. We almost left the tour. What a waste of money. He was never able to focus. Worst tour ever.

More culture, less restaurant talk please

We enjoyed the walk, although we would have liked more history/culture information on Chinatown. The food was very good! We also thought that for people not daring enough to try Chinese food, this is a very good alternative to sample "safely" and with guidance and then maybe try more for themselves. On the whole, it was quite enjoyable and the guide was very nice and likeable!

I really enjoyed my tour. The 3 hours flew by and everyone on our tour was stuffed with the delicious tastings by the end. I liked that there was a lot of history woven through the tastings and the little hand-out with a map was a nice bonus. I also liked the tips on Chinese table etiiquette. This tour made me want to try some others

Excellent guide and food

Raheem was knowledgeable and enthusiastic; and cared for his customers. The food was exquisite! He found the best of the best to show us.

Unfortunately he was unable to provide us with a paper guide to what we saw and ate. I would like very much to have one as we live in NY and would definitely return to the restaurants.

Could Raheem please email us an attachment with the restaurant names and addresses?

Great tour on a cold day!

We were visiting New York on a very cold day (less than 15 degrees!) so we chose the Chinatown tour because it included three indoor seatings. It was a wonderful tour. Raheem was our tour guide - so knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious and we were certainly full at the end. The tour was a little over 3 hours; we were probably outdoors a total of 1 hour (between stops and walking around the area) so this was perfect for such cold weather. We also had a small group so it was quite intimate. This is our second FONY tour (we've also done Chelsea Market and Meatpacking) and we will certainly do another one. I highly recommend both this tour and this tour group.

Time well spent

Raheem, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He provided a delicious and highly informative glimpse into one of New York's most vital and fascinating neighborhoods. In addition to the excellent fare, our tour was replete with invaluable facts about history, local culture, and etiquette.

I would recommend this to both tourists and locals.
