Great food tour of Chinatown
Sat, Jul 7, 12   10:30 AM lisatalarczy Female Unspecified Local Group of Friends
Although it was hot outside, our tour guide Bert kept us cool! We were a group of New Yorkers who wanted to get a good feel for some Chinatown restaurants... The ones the tour picked were spot on.... We know the basics of Chinese food, but Bert stepped it up a notch for us and introduced us to some great places to eat with great recommendations for food to order. History of the area as well as some streets that were "hidden" and didn't know about, made us New Yorkers who thought we knew it all, didn't really, and we learned a few things along the way! Highly enjoyable and think it would be worth it for anyone to try! Great job, Bert! Thanks....

This is our third food tour of New York. We have enjoyed them all. Our tour guide, Bert, was fun and knowledgable The restaurants were wonderful. It was a 100 degree day in the city - we were a little hesitant - but Bert kept us cool, comfortable and laughing!! I would definately recommend this tour!

Loved the explanation - real Peking Duck

Rahim was a wonderful guide. He told lots stories and offered information on locations we didn't get to walk into in due to the tour set-up and time constraints. We enjoyed authentic and filling Chinese food in air conditioned restaurants with three bathroom stops. Dim Sum Go Go had wonderful dim sum. We got to the restaurant early and bought some mango pudding - wonderful on a hot summer day. We enjoyed real Peking Duck, teas, and eggplant, which I never eat.

Bert, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and answered our group's off the wall questions with ease! The stops for tastings were well-planned out and we had a great experience in ChinaTown.

Our group consisted of teens (16+), 45+ and 65+.....EVERYONE had a blast.

We will definitely book another tour in the fall.

A New Vantage Point in Chinatown

We are native New Yorkers and frequent Chinatown about once every month. This was an amazing tour! We learned many facts that we never knew and experienced restaurants that were all new to us. The guide was professional, enthusiastic, and a real gem!!! Great time was had by ALL!!

Excellent cuisine, excellent guide

Our guide was Raheem and he was both entertaining and informative. I would go on any tour he was leading. The food was very different from Chinese food I had tasted in the past and much, much better. Even though the weather could have been more cooperative, we all had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I look forward to returning to the restaurants we visited with him.

Our guide Bert was outstanding in his knowledge.

Our guide Bert was outstanding in his knowledge and his presentation. Very enthusiastic. His description of the foods were so very helpful, as I am not fond of Chinese food. But I tried everything and liked most of it. All the restaurants and stores included in the tour were very nice and the store clerks very helpful. I loved hearing about the history of the area, the gangs, the tunnel, the restaurants. He loves his job and it shows. As my place of employment says, it was an E3 experience! Exceptional Encounter Everytime. Highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.
