A Nice Day of Eating and Walking in ChinaTown

Even though we were the only ones who showed up for the tour, the tour still went on. (Other groups cancelled last minute.) Our guide told us that it goes on if there is at least one person going and I find this commendable.

This was our second food tour (the first one was the Brookly Pizza Food Tour a couple of days before this one) and we enjoyed it as much as the first one. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment of it. The food was magnificent and the information provided by the guide was designed to enable us to enjoy the food and surroundings even more. A wonderful experience. Thanks.

An Awesome Experience

My husband and I are regular visitors to New York and the surrounding area. This was one of the best experiences. We not only had fun enjoying wonderful chinese food, but were educated on customs and the food culture by an agreeable and well informed guide. The tour also made us feel comfortable about re-visiting Chinatown. We both agreed that we will sign up for another food tour of a different area of N.Y. Please note that the number of tours are limited if you visit during a holiday week.

Great fun, great food

We really enjoyed the tour. Fantastic food, interesting commentary. It was nice to be able to sit down, too. I think it's our favorite of the NY tours we've taken so far (Greenwich Village and Chelsea Market), though we've enjoyed them all.

we loved the tour, the guide and the food. This is our second tour and we plan on on going on all of the them. We talked it up at our Thanksgiving dinner last night and convinced some of our relatives to go on your tours. That sums it up.

Great time!

We had a great time on our tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The food we had on the stops was great and I was full enough that I could have skipped dinner. We had dim sum, peking duck, beef jerky, scallion pancakes and egg custard--I think that's everthing. I haven't been on any of the other tours so I can't tell you how it compares to the others, but it was definitely worth the money and a great way to explore the city.

The tour was a dream. The food was outstanding and the commentary and historical background compelling. We now feel less intimidated to explore China Town further on our own. We would highly recommend this tour. Bravo!

Rabhim, I'm sure I got the name wrong....but it did start with an "R." Thank you for the informative tour of Chinatown. We stayed in Chinatown for about two to three hours longer, going back to the places you introduced us to. We enjoyed our stay in NYC and your tour was a highlight of our trip. We will definitely try the other tours on our next trip to NYC. Mahalo and Aloha!

Great Tour!

The tour was a great way to see chinatown and to get amazing food we would never have found by ourselves. The guide was excellent and was sharing his knowledge in a personal way. We had a lot of fun and couldnt eat any more food for the rest of the day.

We recommend you all to take this tour, and that you eat a very small breakfast before, if any.

Feel comfortable eating around Chinatown.
Wed, Jul 23, 08   12:00 PM AndreaMai Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
The tour was great. The guides made us feel very comfortable in Chinatown as tourist. I liked eating in the restaurants , but equally liked eating on the streets.

The guides made it clear that they were not in a deal with the places we visited and were a little dissapointed when there would be a hard sell at the end by the shop. I found this fine and I think it is important for new people to Chinatown to get used to the hard sell they do and just say no thank you and walk away if they are not interested, it is just business.

Good tour guides.

We will do another tour!
