Wonderful tour! Made China Town less intimidating.

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.

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......

Great Experience!

Our group consisted of myself, husband and two daughters ages 9 and 11. We opted for Chinatown tour because sounded interesting but also was the only tour available in the evening. We are so glad it worked out that way because we would have not thought of Chinatown as a tourist destination had we not joined tour.

Our experience was unforgettable and one we will share with others. The restaurants were all very nice, clean and delicious. The tour guide was the HIGHLIGHT of our tour. He was so knowledgeable, kind and professional. He took us into little shops and explained to us the details inside the shop as well as interesting history tidbits of Chinatown. Most importantly he made my daughters feel comfortable and showed them a great time.

This was a nice change from the "usual" New York tourist destinations and a MUST do for someone open to experiencing something outside the box.

Eye opening tour of Asian cuisine

A very worthwhile tour of the local Chinese culture and culinary landscape. Unlike other food tours that can easily entertain by presenting varied ethnic foods, this tour met the challenge of experiencing just one, yet was captivating in describing the complexity of what authentic Chinese food can offer. The neighborhood alone was a sensory experience. I wouldn't recommend for kids and young teens, but otherwise one of the most gratifying cultural experiences I've had in NYC.
