Our tour guide was fabulous! She made the entire experience fascinating and come alive. I highly recommend her, and apologize for forgetting her name. Last name Lee. Unlike other Viator tours we've been on, this tour guide was an interesting addition. She came prepared, grew up in Chinatown and had first hand knowledge of the area and its inhabitants. A pleasure! And a big thanks to her for making it such a great walk through a part of town we would otherwise have probably skipped. If a tour guide is good, it's a whole different experience than when you get someone who is less knowledgeable.
I usually shy away from organized tours, but am I ever happy my mom told me about this one. If you are in San Francisco, this tour is a MUST!
Hopefully you are lucky enough to get Linda Lee as your tour guide - what an AMAZING woman! I wish this tour would have been longer. We saw so many things that we never would have seen had we been on our own. Thank you Linda!
I recommend staying for lunch - it was delicious.
Linda was a awesome tour guide! We enjoyed the tour so much we have already told friends traveling next month to book a tour. Sure we could have walked around ourselves, but I would never have known about or went to most of the places she took us, it was fun and we learned a lot too! I say it's a MUST DO!
This tour was awesome! Our tour guide was very funny and filled with history. My wife and I spent our 10 year anniversary In SF and are super glad that we added this to our itinerary. We added our lunch at the last minute because we had such a great time on the tour itself. Lunch was fantastic and we actually had time to speak with others on the tour. We had folks from Australia, Germany and other parts of the world. We didnt think we were going to learn about other cultures as well.
Highly recommend this!
Linda Lee was excellent tour guide providing TONS of great information and insight to Chinatown. My family and I all highly recommend taking the tour.
If you have the option, definitely opt for the lunch. You won't regret it!
So much fun and informative! Our guide was a lifelong Chinatown resident. I couldn't have asked for more.
A great guide named Allen. He actually grew up in the area and had much information on the history of Chinatown. A lot of interesting facts and stops, and the dim sum lunch was great!
The Chinatown Walking Tour was really fun. We learned a lot about the Chinese culture and their language.
The tour was wonderful. Linda Lee was a terrific guide. She was humorous and informative. The lunch was excellent. Linda had chosen a number of items she thought we would like. I would highly recommend this tour!
Very interesting. We really learned a lot about Chinatown. We really loved the visit to the pharmacy.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Great tour guide. Loads of information. We do u Mr recommend this tour.
