We had a great time during this Chinatown tour! Chinatown seems a place tourists can easily walk in alone, but with the same ease they can get lost. Our guide Dan brought us to all the most interesting spots, illustrating us the history and raise of Chinatown. He also pointed out the most interesting personalities in the history of the neighborhood. We ended our tour with a visit of the American Chinese Center, with photos and documents dated back to the beginning of the XX century! I also highly recommend the Little Italy tour, also operated by Tommy's New York, that we did on the same day always with Dan.
Good time in Chinatown!
Dan was a great guide for the tour. He explains everything very well and we learnt a lot about the history of Chinatown.
I recommend it!
Nice experience. Interesting places and stories. The tour guide is friendly and informative. Got the chance to visit an office which is usually not open to public. Recommended.

Guide was knowledgeable and it was convenient to have someone do the work for me in determining where to go. The guide was personable and gave time for pictures and questions, and lunch recommendations. Access to the benevolent building was interesting and added a lot. Guide had some strong opinions on current events and while we were in general agreement, I could see where that could get awkward quick! Only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars.
Not a good fit for kids or families
The tours listed all ages. Opinions/bias of our tour guide overshadowed and colored the tour. Some information not appropriate for a 9 year old.
