Very informative and enjoyable tour. We loved our tour guide who was a local who grew up right there and had lots of stories and good intel about the area and the history. He provided great restaurant recommendations and we got a little taste of Chinatown on the tour! it was really fun and we met some other great folks on the tour. Truly one of the best tours I have done in New York.

The tour guide is truly knowledgeable (but not at all boring). The time with him fun and educational. He gives the history of the areas and explains how each of the 3 areas grew and shrunk as the laws and cultures changed. Plus, he has pictures to show how it used to be or look vs now. A son of an Asian immigrant, he knows where to find a great dumpling treat.

Enjoyable, informative tour.

Andrew was very accommodating, fun and nice guy, he really knew his stuff and the tour was informative and fun. We also didnt expect him to buy ud dumplings which was a nive surprise. It roughly took 2 hours and 30 minutes and I would highly recomend the tour to anyone!
