We did the Vegetarian Tour in Chinatown NYC and it surpassed our expectations! Candy, our guide was knowledgeable (history of Chinatown and on food), perceptive and able to adapt the tour to members of the group and their food preferences. Her sense of humour was delightful! Our past attempts at trying various things from Asian supermarkets pales in comparison to the foods we tried on the tour e.g the freshly made soy milk which is nothing like the soy milk you buy at the regular supermarket. There were a wide variety treats: a tea shop, a candy store and a dim sum restaurant as well as tips to other places to try should you return to experiment further.

You don't have to be a tourist to love these tours! Took my native New York sons to visit Chinatown the right way. Our tour guide Candy was terrific! We came away not only satiated on the fantastic food but knowledgeable about Chinatown's lore and people. Highly recommended!

I've been living in the city for 5+ years and never ventured further than the one trusty dim sum restaurant in Chinatown that someone recommended to me when I first moved here. I'm so glad I signed up for this tour while my parents were in town visiting. Candy took us to so many great spots- the food was delicious and we really learned a lot about Chinatown too. My parents had a ball and now I have so many places to return to. I would highly recommend this, especially when entertaining visitors to the city. Enjoy!

Candy, our guide was informing and entertaining in equal measure and the selection of different foods we tried were perfectly considered to give as diverse a tasting experience as possible. Greenwich Village is the ideal location for such a tour and we would wholeheartedly recommend it!
