Wonderful, Educational and Tasty!

We have taken several other trips with Foods of NY and they have all been wonderful but this one with Bert was just delightful. He had many educational additions as well as helpful tips which were presented in a professional and humorous manner. The restaurants and areas we visited were located in parts of Chinatown that are not on the usual beaten path. Can't wait to go back to eat and visit the shops again.. We also happened to run into Bert in Greenwich Village the next day while we were browsing around and he gave us a few hints for that area as well. We will have to do that trip for the next visit!!

We absolutely love your food tasting tours. We have taken each and every one of them and wish there were more. Bert was our guide and we give him six stars. He was very informed, attentive and funny. It is truly one of the best values in NYC,

My husband and myself were in NY for 6 days and I went on 8 tours in that time, the Chinatown tour was my favorite. Our tour guide, Bert was great. The tour had just the right mix of eating, walking and information about the area and the food we were tasting. I would enthusiastically recommend this tour with Bert of course he was the best!!

Fabulous Experience in Chinatown!

Our Chinatown food & cultural tour was great for a number of reasons. Bert, our guide, was well informed & familiar with Chinatown, quite funny in a natural manner, and engaging. We were a group of 7 women in our family ranging in age from 30 - 68, and we all loved the tour. We have been on all of the Foods of New York tours, and this one was the same quality, if not better than some of the others. We enjoyed sitting down at the restaurants to eat, and seeing a side of Chinatown that we had never seen before. Well done & we would all highly recommend this tour! Sheri

Our guide was called Burt and he was very good and the small group was nice and friendly.We learnt quite alot about the area and enjoyed tasting different foods in different restaurants, being told about how it was made and about the flavours etc too. We found the meeting place a bit tricky to find, maybe a map would help with the written instructions.

Some of us were locals. Some of us were from out of state. ALL really enjoyed this tour. Bert has extensive knowledge of the area and we loved all of his neighborhood vignettes. The food sampling was perfect. Yes, there was lots of food and the variety was impressive - and definitely keep in mind to 'come hungry'. We also greatly appreciated the map hand out and suggestions for future places that might also be yummy and fun. I recommend it enthusiastically.

Burt was Awesome!

My husband, daughter, and I took the Chinatown tour and greatly enjoyed the three sit-down tastings and one street tasting. The Peking Duck was fabulous, as well as the dumplings and custard tart. Burt entertained us with stories of gang fighting, gambling, and hidden tunnels. I would definitely recommend this tour to travelers and locals alike.
