Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. He provided insight into New York culture and architecture that was amazing. I would highly recommend this tour and it was time well spent. We went on the tour offered through the Pod Hotel. Don't miss going.
Went on 2 tours with Dan from the pod hotel. He was an interesting and genuine guide who showed us around sharing much interesting information together with the local history. We thoroughly enjoyed our 1st tour ... hence the second one! Highly recommend these tours!
We enjoyed the two hour tour with Ben. He gave us a great overview of the history of the neighborhoods, and included the baseball history, which I enjoyed immensely! The walk was enjoyable, and not particularly strenuous. Great for anyone who wants to see and...More

My family (including two nearly-adult boys) met up with Sonya and proceeded on foot. She was very personable and kept us moving through a number of different neighborhoods. It was a great intro to the area, which I hadn't been to in about 25 years!...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.

I am sure Streetwise can build a private tour around the neighborhoods that interest you. Sonya, the tour guide for both tours which I took was very knowledgeable about the art/architecture/history of the various neighborhoods we went to.Both tours were walking tours of about 2-3 hours.
