“Chef Poon is a wonderful tour guide! My students were fascinated, educated and entertained. It was great to see them having so much fun and to hear the positive messages Chef Poon emphasized throughout the tour. Plus, making the arrangements was easy and lunch was delicious.”
— A. Bender, teacher, Northwest Lehigh High School
“WOW!! What a truly fabulous, spectacular time we all had!! The scouts ate every speck on their plates and really enjoyed every special place Joe took us. We could have stayed with him for a few more hours. He is certainly one special soul!”
— C. Gosser, Troop Leader #3454
“I think this might have been truly life altering for my students, most of whom rarely meet someone outside their culture and religion and who rarely, if ever, have ventured to Center City, much less Chinatown. Parents were saying that this was a once in a lifetime experience.”
— L. Leff, teacher, Souderton Charter School
“The tour was fantastic! I was energized by Chef Poon’s uplifting personality and couldn’t wait to tell my family and friends about it. We would definitely recommend it to everyone.”
— M. Ebner, mom of scout, Philadelphia, PA
