What you'll do

This experience details why the Chinese, Irish, and Italians immigrants arrived on our teeming shores. This tour also focuses on how the Chinese, Irish, and Italian exiles became the backbone of New York. The men would build the bridges and the tunnels. The women would be cooks and maids. And their children, raised in the values and language of their new country, would weave themselves into the tapestry of America. This is the story of US.

We will visit Chinatown, Five Points, and Little Italy on this 2-hour fun-filled excursion. This tour is designed as a relaxing entertaining family experience. Not for someone doing research or writing a thesis on immigration.

Richard was amazing. It was our first time visiting New York and he did a wonderful job giving us a history lesson as well as visiting key spots in the area. The dumplings were also amazing. We Would book him again if possible.

Really interesting information and I love the history of it all. First time in the City so it was really nice hearing about that rich history from people who live here.

Andrew was an incredible host, who wove his knowledge of history and storytelling into a unique experience. He showed us where to find fantastic dumplings and gave us nuanced insight into the history of the Irish, Chinese and Italian immigrants of New York. He handled my mother expertly, even when she asked him if Jeffrey Epstein really killed himself. I have lived in downtown New York before, but everything he taught us was new to me. Highly recommend!

Great tour with lots of interesting tour info about Chinatown and Little Italy. Andrew was a great guide and very forgiving for us being 10 minutes tardy. The dumplings they provide are legit.

Andrew was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and exceeded our expectations. The pork fried dumplings were delicious. My wife and I went back after the tour and got some more dumplings. Thanks again Andrew!
