Excellent Way To Learn
, May 2019
We enjoyed this tour, led by Chris, on a recent visit to Victoria. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Chinatown and clearly has a great relationship with current residents and business owners. We learned so much about the area that we would have overlooked had we not taken the tour. We'd highly recommend it!

The guide, Chris, was outstanding. Loved the little aids that he had for us as there was traffic noise. It made it so comfortable that you could hear everything. Chris really knows his stuff and brings it all to life. Great gem of a walking tour. Worth the 90 minutes!

Chinatown occupies a small part of Victoria, but our history expert/tour guide kept us informed for 1 1/2 hours. I feel like he must be a college professor because he spoke so knowledgably and eloquently about Chinatown and how its residents have contributed to society over the years. He even bought us some Chinese pastry treats from a Chinese restaurant for us all to taste. I wish I could remember his name, but I know that he and his father run a local tour guide service and I suspect that it must contract out to Viator. I have taken quite a few Viator trips and this one rated at the top of my list.

Fantastic tour. Very educational and interesting. Tour ran a little longer than expected. History, and culture were approached with sensitivity. Highly recommended.
