My husband and I went on this tour on August 22nd ; this was our second time together in NYC and we decided we wanted to experience part of Manhattan using a guided tour .

Turns out this was an excellent decision !

Our tour guide ( sorry , we can't remember his name ) was very knowledgeable and very friendly;he shortly made everyone in our group feel comfortable with each other !!!

He showed us parts of Chinatown we would have NEVER found if exploring on our own; he was entertaining and could answer to any given question of our lively group !!

The "meals" were excellent : two of the restaurants where we got to sit down are listed by the Michelin and Zagat Guides !!! The Pecking Duck was a gorgeous experience , that duck was to die for !! Also those dumplings we tasted at Dim Sun Go Go were delicious !

( The only "course" I did not like that much was the "sweet roll" that we ate as dessert ... but the other people in our group enjoyed it - someone had a double "serving" ).

I would HIGHLY recommend this food tour to everyone - even NY citizens !! and we would do this tour again in a heartbeat !!!

Our guide Bert, was beyond AWESOME...we had so much fun...Bert knew everything about every street, every shop and every restaurant we were taken to....nevermind the fact the guy is just Fun! At first we balked a little at the $65.00 price tag...we walked away saying we got sooooo much bang for our buck its not even funny. We were treated like we were family, laughed, ate, made new friends and had a blast. Bringing everybody we know on one of these tours!

Bert our tour guide was great. He was fun, enjoyable, and informative. My husband & I would have never figured out where to go to eat...I'm sure we would have missed Out on the remarkable food we ate . Next trip we definitely will put these restaurants on our "again" list. Thanks Bert, you did a GREAT job.

Great tour and good food

We had a great tour even though it was close to 100 degrees. Our guide made sure that we was inside in the AC as much as possible and still gave us a very good introduction to Chinatown. We had a very good and enthusiastic guide who knew what he was talking about.

If we ever come back to New York we will go on another tour we the same company.

Loved the Dim & the Duck. The tea shop and health store were nice and had a great variety of products. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic......the store owners & employees were very welcoming & our guide had a good relationship with everyone.

Great guide & great food.

This was our second tour with Foods of New York. The weather was really hot so this particular tour, with its sit-down format, was ideal - it enabled us to escape the sweltering heat and get to chat with other folks in the group. The guide was informal but informative. We learnt a lot about the neighbourhood, its history and the cuisine. Throughout the guide was attentive to the needs of the group. We really liked the sauces & dim sum that started the tour - the one with Chinese chives was our favourite. The food on the rest of the tour was good - and the visits to the tea shops were interesting. We returned to China Town later in the week and explored more of the area. If we come to to NYC again we'd repeat the same tour - thank you!

I thought the Chinatown tour was very informative and yummy. We were fed a lot of food, definitely enough for more than a meal. There were a lot of cool things on the menu that I would normally never try on my own. We had locals, international travelers, and domestic travelers like myself, who all really enjoyed the tour. I definitely want to do some of the other food tours next time I visit NYC.

The tour was 3 hours long and there was plenty to eat/taste, although the tour did not go too far you did find out the history of the area which I found very interesting, Good value for money, shame we had to fly back home to England the same day :(
