Interesting AND delicious!

This was really one of the highlights of our trip to NYC- a great tour of Chinatown and some fabulous food. We had never had Peking Duck and are now big fans. I would highly recommend this tour to people of any age. Our guide, Rasheem, was super and after the tour gave us some recommendations for where to spend the after noon and where to get a great dinner in Soho. We followed his advice and it was perfect. We'll try another tour on our next visit.

I've eaten in Chinatown numerous times and work a short walk away, but this tour broadened my knowledge 1000 percent. My parents were visiting from England so I bought us all tickets and we all loved it. The dim sum was eye-opening and delicious. The Peking duck was great, though less unusual. The other stops and history were excellent and yummy too. Raheem is a very knowledgeable and likable guide.

While a lifelong New Yorker and Chinese food aficionado, I learned a great deal about the history of Chinatown and added several new restaurants to my list. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and the whole experience was outstanding.

Everytime I come to New York I have to do one of these tours because they are always one of the highlights of the trip! I was here with my mum this time and we did the China town tour and the Greenwich village tour. The Chinatown tour was definitley worth it - our tour guide Raheem was fantastic and all the food was amazing! Its such a good way to explore an area that you might not make the most of on your own and a great way to get to know some great restaurants you can go back to at your leisure! If I come back again with my husband I would probably book this again as I thoroughly enjoyed it! I think my mum had a little crush on Raheem as well!!

Chinatown Learning

Being from an upper midwest community with little Chinatown knowledge, I would not have even ventured into the area if it had not been for this tour. Having attended another tour last month with friends, I talked my husband into doing this tour and we both loved it! We learned so much about the history of the area and particularly "real" Chinese food. It was fantastic! Our guide was enthusiastic and excellent.

Great introduction to Chinatown and especially its restaurants. Raheem was knowledgeable and personable. He took us though places we had been before, but told us things we didn't know. We had a great time, just pace yourself. There is plenty of food. We weren't hungry until about ten o'clock at night. We intend to sign up for another Foods of New York tour.

Raheem is a terrific guide...and I'm desperately jealous that we don't have a dim sum place as good as Dim Sum Go Go near us. Great tour, good walk, a lot of tasty food!
