I thought this was a great tour of Chinatown after dark. We wandered through a ton of the interesting alleyways and the guide had great commentary on Chinatown history, Chinese superstitions and tales of ghosts in Chinatown. My favorite part was seeing and hearing people playing mah-jongg. The fortune cookie factory was also fantastic.

A nice way to break the ice our first night in San Francisco. Our kids enjoyed it a lot. What we learned helped us to come back to Chinatown during our stay.

An experience into the other side of Chinatown, and our navigator made it all the more special as she had family connections, and certainly knows how to entertain, making it more real. The history she told us was exciting plus heartfelt stories made me look at the town with a different perspective. All in all it was very interesting, and moving experience. Well worth exploring.

Our guide told fascinating stories; you don't need to believe in ghosts to enjoy this, it's a personal family history of Chinatown woven into the history of San Francisco plus movie gossip, fortune cookie making, and green tea. Everything was very enjoyable.

I would recommend this night tour to anyone. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. This tour gives you a taste of the past and present mixed together. I would do this tour again if I had a chance. I would also encourage teens to take this tour.

This was lots of fun! Our Hostess was VERY sweet, knowledgable, friendly and a marvelous story teller. Walking through all the back alleys and hearing the history and the stories about specific buildings was fun. The stories of 'unusual happenings' were so interesting! Chinatown came to life for our group of four. We live in the Bay Area - and we will be back again!

30 of us met at the Four Seas Restaurant at 7 PM and checked in. We were then broken into two groups and assigned an escort, who walked us around Chinatown's streets and alleys for 90 minutes describing historical facts and lore about the area. It was very interesting and provided us with a lot of historical information that made the rest of the trip more fun as well. The walking was up and down - it was San Francisco - and anyone walking with that stress will be challenged.
Take your camera and don't be shy about asking questions.

Cynthia did an excellent job of taking a large, disparate group of tourists through Chinatown. The Ghost Stories and history of Chinatown were delivered very clearly with a smile. This is a tough feat in an unpredictable and uncontrollable environment. The magic show was a nice way to end the tour.

This was more of a history of Chinatown than a ghost tour. We learned more about the area and the back rooms and alleys. A good experience.
