Fantastic tour!!
Mon, Jul 6, 09   12:00 PM jeffmay Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
These tours were the highlights of our vacation and we wouldn't change a thing. Rahim is a very gracious host and tour guide and looked after everyone beautifully, providing lots of fascinating information about the area that we would never have been able to find out on our own. We were amazed at the quality and quantity of the food provided and actually skipped dinner that evening. The night before we left we met some tourists from California and gave them the web address for these tours in hopes there would be some available slots. We plan to repeat these tours in the future and look forward to seeing Rahim again next year for the sushi dinner.

The food was superb and substantial; Rahim was an enthusiastic and energetic tour guide. He provided a wealth of information about how foods are prepared, their history, and the etiquette and customs involved in eating at the Chinese table. His discussion of the history of the Chinese in America, the streets and hidden attractions of Chinatown was fascinating. Having grown up in NYC and having visited Chinatown on many occasions, we thought we knew the area. Now we know that we didn't. There is so much to learn and enjoy on the Chinatown tour that we plan to repeat this walking and dining experience.

Peking Duck!

In addition to our first time experiencing Peking duck, which was awesome, we also had some great dim sum, barbecue, and jerky! We had always felt kind of intimiated by Chinatown, but now we will feel much more comfortable exploring it on our own. And we know some great places to eat!

Amazing food and history

I just returned from the Chinatown walking tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good food and learning about other cultures. Our tour guide Rahim was very enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable about chinese food, history and culture. He made sure everyone was enjoying themselves at every moment. The sit-down experiences were wonderful and the food was delicious and plentiful. Come hungry! Walking around Chinatown and tasting on the streets really gave you much insight into the best locations in the area that you wouldn't otherwise get from wandering around on your own. This tour was truly something to share with friends and family, a fun experience overall!

we enjoyed the tour very much; our guide, rashid, was a lot of fun and knowledgeable about the area and the food; the food was quite good, my husband

loved the peking duck and was amazed that it would be offered on a tour; although i have been in chinatown many times, i was able to get to see restaurants and shops that are not in the mainstream and i will surely be back

More culture, less restaurant talk please
Mon, May 25, 09   12:00 PM phvall Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We enjoyed the walk, although we would have liked more history/culture information on Chinatown. The food was very good! We also thought that for people not daring enough to try Chinese food, this is a very good alternative to sample "safely" and with guidance and then maybe try more for themselves. On the whole, it was quite enjoyable and the guide was very nice and likeable!

Raheem was great a guide!!
Mon, May 18, 09   12:00 PM enrico Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
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 couldn´t 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.

Good time in Chinatown
Mon, May 11, 09   12:00 PM wawhitt Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We went on the Chinatown walking/eating with Raheem. The food was fantastic, and our guide provided us with lots of information about what we were eating as well as an interesting overview of Chinatown. He was obviously well-informed and excited about his topic as well as friendly and pleasant. We had a great time; this is our second tour, and we will definitely do another tour the next time we are in NYC.

I was a little reluctant to use my visa to book this tour, but I am very glad we did. Very informative and I wish we had time for another of the tours. I would have loved the Saturday night Sushi tour as well. Not much walking at all and no uphill climbs to worry about.
