Talking, walking, eating our way through Chinatown is going to be a fun adventure. I want to make Chinatown a true destination by showing a more intimate, local side of this great gem.

I’m a nearly native New Yorker who moved from Hong Kong, to the big, tall island of Manhattan, as a skinny seven year old girl. Disappointment by dismal dim sum at that tender age made me miss my earlier home and traditions. I have since tried to find foods that reminded me of where I’m from. I found some at Big Wong on Mott Street, where my dad worked as a waiter when I was a kid. I attended a Chinese school across the street from Big Wong, and every week day, he would send me off to class with congee and fritters - comfort food.

Luckily, in the two decades I’ve lived in and around New York’s Chinatown, the food here has gotten a lot better and more diversified. We will have a chance to load up on good foods and learn a little bit about Chinese American history and culture in NYC.

We had a great time! Ming is super nice and knowledgeable, and did a great job juggling us with our baby daughter. She truly made this a great adventure!

My wife and I had a great time touring Chinatown with Ming. There is no way we would have seen the places we saw, or understood what we were seeing if it weren't for Ming. If you are interested in discovering Chinatown, this is a great way to do it.

This tour was just fabulous, if you come to New York you should really make it. Ming is such a great guide, really patient and knows so much about the neighbourhood. Without her we would have missed so many interesting things about Chinatown. We took a lot of the regular New York tours, but they were so boring compared to this very personal and great expirience.

We had the tour around Chinatown with Ming and we loved it! She showed us the authentic NYChinatown and pointed out things we would have totally missed if we would have walked on our own. We strongly recommend everybody to choose her tour if you visit NYC.

MING IS SO KNOWLEDGEABLE AND MADE THE TOUR VERY INTERESTING, WE COVERED A LOT OF AREAS IN CHINATOWN AND LEARNT A LOT. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO RECOMMENDING HER TO MORE PEOPLE FROM MY COUNTRY TO LEARN ABOUT CHINATOWN.

I learned more about Ming, her life in Chinatown & the history of the neighborhood on this tour than I have in the last three years of being friends with her. Her knowledge is unrivaled. The places she takes you to are secret. The food she introduces you to will will blow your mind and leave money in your pocket. What more can one ask for? 18 other people of the inaugural tour agree with me. For an authentic experience from someone who has lived this experience, Big Ming is your guide. Join her.
