Bert gave a wonderful tour with lots of info about the food we were eating, the history of the area and lots of tidbits about other places to check out in the area. I'm looking forward to going back to Chinatown to try some more of the great suggestions.

Rajhim - not sure of spelling - (the guide) loves this topic (Chinese - history and food), made everyone enthusiastic about it, and gave us great background/historical information about the food and places/activities in the area. The food was high-quality, wonderfully tasty, and not the common Chinese dishes and condiments. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!

Raheem (think I've spelled correctly) made this tour a delight. Of course, he had three fantastic first-rate restaurants to help him, as well as a batch of warm custard tarts for dessert from a Chinese bakery! But, he was a passionate advocate for the cuisines of China and a champion of their culture and their NYC community. What made the tour even more vital,was the fact that Raheem comes from a Muslim background and so was able to inject a true multicultural spirit into our walk and our dining. Both the tour and the guide should be considered local treasures. I recommend it to anyone who loves Chinese food, and BTW the Peking Duck was superlative, and I come from Vancouver, Canada, where good Mandarin chefs litter our Asian dining scene. Bravo!

A new Yorker all my life . Went with some hesitation thinking I was a know-it-all about Chinatown and Food.

Given to me as a gift ,the tour was a great surprise . Bert was a most personable and knowledgable guide. Restaurant choice and food excellent and varied. Learned numerous tid-bits of trivial and historical information about Chinatown. Enjoyed interacting with many other interesting and friendly members of our tour group.

Highly Recommended.

Five Stars and an egg roll to Bert !

We really loved this tour, as our guide provided a lot of information in a charming and fun way. On top of that, the food was amazing and very authentic. We also very much appreciated the leaflet with addresses to further restaurants and directly made use of a recommendation our guide made a few days after the tour which did not disappoint us. We can therefore only recommend this tour further to others.

Despite appaling weather (the infamous October Snow storm)myself and my daughter had an entertaining and value for money morning. The guide was knowledgable, warm, humerous and helpful. The food we tasted was all of excellent quality and we were very impressed with the amounts offered (we couldn't manage it all!)

I would higly recommend friends travelling to New York take one of these tours.
