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.

Had a great time on our trip to California and enjoyed this part of our trip, nice and safe tour taken with a knowledgable tour guide.

We live near San Francisco so have been to Chinatown several times but got to try some new things. The tea testing and dim sum were both informative and delicious (I had dim sum before and didn't care for it). We ate everything. The guide was informative except when we asked for a restaurant recommendation. He said he didn't like Chinese food and that was that. He should have had a good answer since I'm sure everyone asks that. The Italian place at the end was good. Some in our party didn't care for the ultra think cracker crust but that is just preference. The owner was very pleasant and informative and we enjoyed the wine. We met a very nice couple visiting from Canada and ended up walking the to their hotel after the tour. I will definitely try another - it is a great gift idea for my husband and son-in-law who are so difficult to buy for.

I'm pretty sure this should be listed as a 3 hour tour. There is a ton of food so come very very hungry. I'm sure the guide is a very nice person but he seems easily frazzled and I'm not sure how much he truly knows about Chinatown. Several people left for various reasons so I'm not sure if there is a time management problem on the part of the guide or there should just be three hours allotted for this tour and people are expecting two. I would also recommend starting this tour elsewhere in Chinatown. Grant Street is just too crowded at the time the night tour starts and perhaps the tour should start an hour earlier so people are more able to wait to eat during the tour and we won't be inconveniencing business owners and vendors that want to go home. I'm sure some little tweaks like this will make this a good tour but there are a lot of them that need to be made, hence the two star rating.

Guide was uninterested in being there. I always tip my guides but not this time. I would have been better off with an audio tour. The tea tasting could have been fascinating but it was awkwardly silent. Teas were served, no explanations. Corny jokes are ok but information is what I paid for and there was pitifully little of that.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this

The guide took us to a back alley restaurant. Way to much religion on the trip He talked about adultery on the trip. This was our honeymoon! The restaurant he took us to was dirty. Waste of money and time!
