Linda Lee is an excellent tour guide. Having grown up in the area, she knows and imparts so much more than you get with the bland, canned tours. She is very funny and involves everyone -- all ages-- in the exploring process. She adapts each tour to the interests of the specific group. we saw an herb shop, the telephone exchange, the chinese school, a budhist temple, the family buildings, visited a fortune cookie company, a chinese market and much more. we also added the lunch feature and it was interesting for our grandchildren to try new things like the sesame ball desert and the sticky pork buns. A great few hours -- fun and informative.
Linda Lee was our guide and she was superb! She made the tour fun AND educational!
Linda was very informative. She grew up in the neighborhood so she gave us an in-depth view of the social/ economic structure and history of the community. Linda is also very funny.My kids LOVED it. I am in poor health at the moment but I was able to keep up because the pacing is reasonable. Great!
Alan was amazing. As a Chinese American that grew up nearby he had amazing back stories on the history and culture of the area. So glad we booked this.
Fun and informative tour about Chinatown - I recommend adding the lunch for an overall experience. The information of history, culture, and the various stops such the the market and pharmacy were helpful in understanding the Chinese traditions. My husband and I would have missed all this information if we didn't take the tour. Definitely worth the time.
This tour is a MUST do for anyone visiting San Francisco! Linda Lee is a wonderful guide. She grew up in Chinatown and shared personal experiences with us, as well as it's rich history. We also opted for the Dim Sum lunch, which was delicious. This tour is well worth the price, I would definitely recommend it.
This tour was amazing. Just the right pace for a diverse group. Our tour leader was the husband of another leader and was full of information. The tea ceremony was very interesting and ,of course ,I came our of there with a variety of tea! The optional dim sum lunch was very good. I would highly recommend this tour.
The tour was informative and entertaining. Linda's passion for her heritage and sharing it with people rang through throughout the tour. Her personality cannot be duplicated!

Linda is one of the best tour guides I have ever experienced. She was thorough, knowledgable, funny and personable. I highly recommend her if you want a special tour of Chinatown.
This tour was so fun and full of information you won't get on your own. We did lunch on our own at a recommendation of our guide. Fantastic!!! Would do it again.
Linda was great. She really knew the history of Chinatown. Told us things we could not read in the tourist guide or history books.
Our guide was wonderful! Linda lee had been doing this tour for a very long time, she knew her info but made it sound fresh and exciting on our New Years morning tour!
Linda was absolutely amazing. She kept the nine of us captivated with stories of the history and culture. When we weren't firing questions at her or captivated with stories flavored by her own personal experience, she had us laughing. We will not only recommend her as a guide we will be back with more friends and family.
So much fun and informative! The tour guide grew up in Chinatown and was full of information. Not only did she know the history of Chinatown she had love for the area and it's people. This made the experience very special for us. We had visited Chinatown many times before, but never took a tour. Seeing the area through her eyes opened ours!
Our guide, Linda Lee, was great. We enjoyed the Pharmacy, the grocery store and the Fortune Cookie Factory. Linda has a wonderful sense of humor and made the walking tour informative and fun.
Great tour! learned a lot about Chinatown. Our tour guide Linda Lee was knowledgeable and entertaining. She took us to places you wouldn't see on your own. I highly recommend this tour!
Linda our tour rep was very friendly, amusing and knowledgable. The lunch in Chinese restaurant very good.
The tour was wonderful! Our guide, Linda, was born and raised in Chinatown and knew all the people that owned shops there and had so much knowledge. One of my favorite tours while in San Francisco!
Learned a great deal about Chinese and their history in San Francisco. Lunch was very good.
The Walking Tour of Chinatown exceeded my expectations. Our wonderful guide gave personal insight into the lives of Chinese immigrant in Chinatown. She was able to engage everyone in the group with ages ranging from elementary school kids to grandparents. I have been to China many times but I learned even more about the culture through this tour. My grandsons, husband and I would have missed so much if we tried to do this tour from a guide book. Don't miss this tour if you visit San Francisco
