Bert, our guide was entertaining and brimming with information both about Chinatown and the food. We enjoyed three "sit-down" tastes and each one was better than the last. We made a few other stops for shopping and browsing. Over all - a fantastic visit to a unique part of New York City.

This is our third food tour of New York. We have enjoyed them all. Our tour guide, Bert, was fun and knowledgable The restaurants were wonderful. It was a 100 degree day in the city - we were a little hesitant - but Bert kept us cool, comfortable and laughing!! I would definately recommend this tour!

A New Vantage Point in Chinatown

We are native New Yorkers and frequent Chinatown about once every month. This was an amazing tour! We learned many facts that we never knew and experienced restaurants that were all new to us. The guide was professional, enthusiastic, and a real gem!!! Great time was had by ALL!!

This tour was great! It was a great combo of food, culture and history. We very much liked the dim sum at the first spot and I thought the peking duck at the Pecking Duck House was the best I've ever had and can't wait to take my husband back with me! Where I really liked the first 2 stops/tastings I didn't really enjoy the last one. The eggplant dish was okay kinda of mushy and I really didn't like the rice as it was too fishy for my taste.

Bert was a great tour guide! He was full of knowledge about the areas and great recommendations and he really got the group involved and kept us all entertained. I would love to take another food tour led by him.

One thing I didn't really like was that prior to going on this tour I read on the website that there were 5 tastings 3 seated and 2 'on-the-go' and it mentioned something about eating a 'tiger roll'. We only ha 3 tastings so I was confused when the your ended at the 3rd place cause I thought there were more stops.

It would have been nice to end the tour with something sweet. Although I did end up going to the Chinatown Ice Cream factory that Bert recommended!

Our tour was very enjoyable.This one was the final one that we hadn't done yet.All the others were so much fun and were thoroughly enjoyed so we were anxious to do this one too.

The guide was very knowledgeable & pleasant.We are hoping to do another one when it is added to the list.

I have recommended these tours to many people.

Best Food Tour I've Ever Done

Awesome, great guide who was very informative and obviously personally interested in Chinese Food, Culture and NY Chinatown. It gave us a very local feel for the area including many non-food sites and history tidbits, as well as great tips for NYC in general. The food was fantastic and authentic (I have had Dim Sum and Peking Duck in China). Highly Recommended.

Great experience that we WILL recommend to friends

Great food and cultural experience. The guide, Burt, is incredible in his food and cultural knowledge of Chinatown and gave us a great time. We will recommend this tour to others. We would recommend to add half an hour, cut the Cantonese stop and add a walk through the Mott street market.
