This is my second experience with Food of New York tours. We have done the Greenwich Village tour and both are excellent. Bert was a fantastic tour guide. This tour was more of a "sit down" restaurant experience as compared to the outdoor walking Greenwich village tour. The walk through the park was great and gave us a flavor of the local culture.

My only concern is that we noticed that the Peking Duck House has a sanitation code rating of "C". This was not easily seen, and we would have not have eaten in this establishment if we had seen this.

I truly enjoyed the Chinatown Food Tour.The tour was a Christmas gift from our daughter and her fiance. Our son and his wife and their son also joined us. The foods chosen were delicious, very cultural and presented beautifully. Our tour guide, Bert, was exceptional, in that he provided us with interesting commentary, was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about Chinatown and its people. He truly enjoys his profession and makes sure he includes everyone in the tour with individual attention. We had about 17 people joining us, just the right amount for seating at the various locations. I especially enjoyed the Peking Duck, and also appreciated his explanation of its preparation. I am sure my family and I will avail ourselves of the other tours you have to offer. I do believe that Bert made the tour most enjoyable for all of us.

I cannot say enough about the guide. He was very knowledgeable with the history, local customs/traditions and of course the food. The first two restaurants were great choices and the food was both exciting and fabulous. The third was not acceptable and another option should be chosen. The apothecary was interesting but the tea store was a waste of time.
