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.

not knowing anything of what was going to happen my 18 yr old daughter and i joined the tour in chinatown. we had only arrived from australia a couple of nights before so were still slightly shell shocked, especially by the heat, as we had just left winter. meeting our guides Raheem and Bert as well as the rest of the tour group was an absolute pleasure and put us totally at ease. the first course at go go dim sum was so fresh and flavoursome we knew we were in for a great 3 hours. we were not disappointed the tour was fun, informative of culture and history as well as scrumptious. we have another foods of ny tour booked for tomorrow and we cant wait, we know it is going to be a great experience. loved Raheem and Bert.

A great first trip to New York!

I brought a friend who is nineteen years old on this tour. It was her first trip into New York, she was visiting from Copenhagen. I set up a day trip that began with this food tour of Chinatown. I had been on another one of these food tours so I knew she would enjoy it. This Chinatown tour was slightly more expensive than the previous food tour I did of Greenwich Village but we received more food with this tour. Both of us enjoyed it tremendously. This is a wonderful way to see parts of New York. Thank you for a great job!

Great tour and tourguide

The 3 hours passed quite quickly, with plenty of information on Chinatown and the cuisine being doled out in addition to the great food samples. Loved the Peking Duck - it was the highlight of the tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. He stayed aware of the group and handled any unexpected situations (a few small wrinkles in the itinerary) well. Overall, a great experience.

We want to thank Raheem for such a great tour. The food was fantanstic and very interesting. He is a wonderful speaker and full of interesting info on Chinatown; the food, the history and the neighborhoods we toured. Our tour group had eight people in it and we all loved the tour. Our personal group of four would all recommend it to anyone visiting NYC. Two of us are from NJ and wish we had found these food tours years ago. Thanks Raheem and keep up the great work.

Our tour guide was simply amazing. We learned so much about the food, traditions and history of NYC Chinatown. We were a mixture of adults, a teen, family and friends - I'd recommend this tour for anyone teenage and above.
