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.

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.

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.

I am a New Yorker born and bred. I have always held a fascination for Chinatown, and this tour was a great way to learn and get to know it. I loved that this tour had a little bit of everything: food, walking, culture and the history of the neighborhood. Thank you "Foods of New York" for organizing this tour so thoroughly.

Hot time in Chinatown

Our tour happened during the heat wave so we were glad that we were mostly inside in the air conditioned restaurants! Our guide Burt was great! He was funny, informative, courteous, and kept us in the shade as much as possible when we were outside. I learned a lot about the area and I know we'll be going back. Especially to a "concealed" bar that he showed us. The food was delicious and I can't even begin to pick a favorite from what we ate. This was our third food tour (previous tours were Greenwich Village and Chelsea Market) and I would rate this one possibly the highest of all so far. As luck would have it, we were only five on the tour so it was "cozy" and very nice.
