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.

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!

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.

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!

The Chinatown tour was a highlight of our trip. The combination of cultural history, food history, well-organized guides, and, not least, good food made this a perfect tour.

This tour is a winner!

We were privileged to be on the first-ever Chinatown Walking Tour, and it gave us not only a great experience of tasting the unique food and learning the history of the area, but we got to see all the planning and preparation that goes into these tours. Rahim and Todd did a great job handling the inevitable curveballs that occur during a first-time run-through. This was the highlight of our week in Manhattan, and it will only get better as time goes on! We loved the food, loved the atmosphere of Chinatown, loved the whole experience.

Well worth the money, would do it again.

This was our 1st food tour and I honestly did not know what to expect. Both my wife and I had a great time. The tour was a nice mix of the history of Chinatown and a sampling of the food. All of the food stops were great. We would like to return to all of the restaurants to dine. Our guide also showed us several additional eateries/bars that we would like to visit. If we only had the time......
