This was an excellent tour. Our family enjoyed every minute of it. We purchased the lunch option; but we were not crazy about the lunch.

The guide was wonderful. She knew the way around and we gained a lot of good information.
Since the guide grew up in Chinatown, it was great listening to stories from her perspective. She was very informative and answered the participants questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is considering taking the tour.
I really enjoyed this tour! Informative and interesting. The lunch was superb and I really recommend those who want to try Chinese to include the lunch. The cookie factory though was a bit of a disappointment!
The guide who had lived in Chinatown as a child had great stories to tell and her sense of humor made for a great tour! The visit to the ancestor shop was interesting. I would have passed it by without a look on my own.
I definitely enjoyed this walking tour, and the guide was fantastic. She provided an educational and fun approach to venturing into Chinatown. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
Great way to see SF's Chinatown. Learned a lot, and the atmosphere really is great. If you've never been to a 'real' Chinatown before, you will be surprised at how many nooks and crannies there are to discover.
We are a family of 5 with kids ranging in age from 12 to 8.
We had a good time on this tour and we all learned a lot. However my two younger daughters were unable to stay in the grocery store. Be prepared for live food- tough if you are a vegetarian.
The trip was great. i would recomend it to all. The add on Dim Sum was good but not great. It was not "traditional" in the sense that each diner picked from carts. It was preordered. That said it was very good.
Loved the tour and would do it again, but not the lunch. I don't think we got the best deal for our money ($40 for 2 of us) with the dim sum lunch. We would have probably been better off getting lunch after the tour on our own.
The tour guide (Linda Lee) is excellent and I learned so much more than I ever knew before about Chinatown (even after living in SF for 13 yrs!).
Excellent tour guide, Linda and also learned a lot about the area, loved seeing the fortune cookie factory and learning about the area, but the tour guide should wear a mic because my stepmom was hard of hearing and didn't hear really anything that she was saying, but I really enjoyed the whole tour.
Well worth doing. Beth was an excellent guide and imparted knowledge in a friendly and easy going way. We were a small group of 5, we two Brits + 3 Americans. This made for an interesting chat over a delicious lunch. Time went very quickly, we particularly liked the fortune cookie factory. Fun and informative.
Linda was a fabulous guide. She offered not only information about Chinatown, but also the history of the Chinese immigrants and cultural differences of today. I was a bit disappointed with the tour of the fortune cookie factory - it was a very small place and not everyone in the group was able to get into it and see what was going on. Overall, it was worth it and was a great introduction to the area. We ended up spending the rest of the day discovering more things in Chinatown by ourselves and visiting some of the tour stops to shop. The lunch was pretty good - a nice sampling of food. It was really nice to sit down at lunch with our tourguide and have some more time just talking with her and gaining more knowledge. Thanks Linda !
