Chinatown Food Tour with Bert

Recently went on the Chinatown Food with Bert and am happy to say it was the best food tour, out of three, I've taken in New York. Not only was the food amazing, but Bert was so funny and told many stories that made me not only appreciate all there was to eat, but also the history of this section of the city. I will definitely continue to do more tours and am hoping there is a way to get Bert as a guide again.

Perfect Food/Culture Introduction to Chinatown

We had always avoided venturing into Chinatown due to our lack of knowledge of the area, the food, and the culture. Fortunately, we took this tour and experienced the vast knowledge of our guide, Bert, who had resided in Chinatown for several years and frequently patronizes the local restaurants there. The combination of sit-down food tastings and Bert's explanations of the food and history of this area made this the ideal tour for us. Anyone who might be a little nervous about striking out alone in this area should start with this top-notch tour.

We did not have high expectations before the tour but we really enjoyed ourselves. I am sure that we will take another one in the future

I believe the quide was a gentleman by the name of Rahim though I may be mistaken. The quality of the tour is really a result of his knowledge and personality. He did an outstanding job. I hope this communication gets to him because he is the reason I would recommend the tour. Ken Margraf and Margaret Crowell.

Our tour guide was very informative. The restaurants and food were fantastic. We went back to the Peking Duck for dinner - well worth the money.

We arrived early and our guide, Bert, was there to meet us and gave us a quick rundown of what we would be doing before taking us up to our first tasting. When the group was assembled he gave us a description of the food on offer and would answer any questions we had and then it was on to the next stop. He set a nice relaxed pace which allowed plenty of time to chat with fellow diners. The restaurants were very good and the service was excellent. Bert was entertaining and knowledgeable about the food, the area and its history. At the end Bert made sure we all knew where we were going and gave directions if we were unsure. It was a wonderful way spend a few hours and will recommend to any of my friends visiting New York

Awesome Chinatown Tour!

My husband and I took the Chinatown tour, which was fabulous. I was full by the end of our 2nd stop! We had a really nice variety of food, and learned a lot about the restaurants that we went to. I highly recommend this tour.

I would love it if the tour company would add a variation of the Chinatown tour that would go to some of the more exotic places in Chinatown. While I really enjoyed the places we stopped in, there are lots of small Chinatown shops that I would be to intimidated to go into on my own (you know, the kind of places that have things like duck legs hanging in the windows!). I would also love to see a food tour that would stop at a bunch of different ethnic places - such as afghan food, ethiopian food, vietnamese food, turkish food, etc. - rather than the fairly "average" places that the majority of the tours go to.

Overall, the quality of the tour, and the food on the tour, and the tour guide, was fabulous and we really enjoyed it! We would just like to see more variety of ethnicities in the tour choices, for those of us who would like to try some new things.
