With the greatest of respect , unfortunately i think most everyone on the tour felt this way, i can explain… the first reason is that the tour was not what it was advertised or presented as. We bought tickets for a toue though chinatown to enjoy the food and cukture of chinatown. Yet 80 percent of the foods and srinks had nothing to so with chinatown. Example you were giving soup at coffee shop outside of Chinatown and an Italian dish at a market, again, outside of chinatown and … beer and a pie and macaroons (at a french pastry, which happen to be located within chinatown). What about us enjoying chinese tea, and delicacies at a chinese bakery (like an egg tart) and ramen rather than the italian dish? Also i especially had no interest in the history of these non chinatown buainesses but we apent a lot of time on this. Also typically the tour guide spends time discussing cooking methods or she could had a chef discuss their ramen as many of us are really interested! There also was no team buulding as in my prior food tours so the group had zero bonding (ie “where are you all from? What are your names? Why did you piivk this tour? What is your favorite chinese dish?) no one in the group talk to anyone else and that’s because there was no attempt to integrate persons in the group. Also the ordering of the foods (which were random anyhow ) was also random, for example with a desert being the macaron in the middle of the tour. All in all, the toir guide was a nice lady and i did learn a little bit but i was very disappointed and I understood that most others were as well, likely for the above reasons. I hope thats helpful, best regards.
