This was our second food tour. We will continue tours until we've done them all!!! Everything we ate was outstanding and we love our tour guide, Burt. This is the best tour company in NYC.

My husband, daughter, and I loved the tour today, guided by enthusiastic and knowledgeable Bert. He provided a comprehensive overview of the history and the cuisine of the area, and was delightful company for the 3 hours we spent with him. The restaurants we visited served us delicious food, and we'd love to return to further explore this vibrant area of wonderful New York City.

Great tour

Food, info, guide, everything was great. highly recommended if you are into chinese food. You also get a lot of ideas of restaurants to visit later, so if you are on holiday I recommend having the tour in the start of it so you have the time to go back and further investigate the restaurants visited. Great experience, and the guide, Rahim, had good knowledge.

Our tour guide was very informative. The restaurants and food were fantastic. We went back to the Peking Duck for dinner - well worth the money.

Very Accomodating

Accommodated all customers / clients -- even with allergies / food restrictions. Great food / great talks about food preparation as well as historical information of the area. Fun to sit down to eat and chat with the other guests. No strenuous walking. We will highly recommend to all our friends.

Our tour guide was Bert, and he knew his stuff! His presentation was fun, the history was great and the food....oh, man, the food!! Come hungry for sure. (Or come hungover...we were, and it was the perfect cure!) Also, there were so many places on the list we couldn't visit (but learned about) so we already have a "to-do" (to eat?) list for our next trip to NYC. Bottom Line: Worth every penny. Doooo it!

Awesome Chinatown Tour!

My husband and I took the Chinatown tour, which was fabulous. I was full by the end of our 2nd stop! We had a really nice variety of food, and learned a lot about the restaurants that we went to. I highly recommend this tour.

I would love it if the tour company would add a variation of the Chinatown tour that would go to some of the more exotic places in Chinatown. While I really enjoyed the places we stopped in, there are lots of small Chinatown shops that I would be to intimidated to go into on my own (you know, the kind of places that have things like duck legs hanging in the windows!). I would also love to see a food tour that would stop at a bunch of different ethnic places - such as afghan food, ethiopian food, vietnamese food, turkish food, etc. - rather than the fairly "average" places that the majority of the tours go to.

Overall, the quality of the tour, and the food on the tour, and the tour guide, was fabulous and we really enjoyed it! We would just like to see more variety of ethnicities in the tour choices, for those of us who would like to try some new things.
