The guide was knowledgeable and our tour came with lots of food and tea tasting opportunities. The pizza dinner at the end was amazing, we had to skip our original dinner plans. The only thing though I would suggest is to allow 3-3.5hrs for this tour rather than the suggested 2hrs.

This tour proved better then I thought it would be. Our guide, Caesar was very informative and welcomed our questions. It is well worth the time, Chinatown is a whole world of its own inside the city.

The tour leader was great--very informed. Enjoyed the tastings in Chinatown and dinner in the Italian restaurant. Even though I have been to San Fran before, I was glad I went on this tour.

tea tasting was enjoyable, as was pizza and wine dim sum was a real disappointment - almost all sweet and starchy
