Excellent walking tour. We had been to San Francisco's Chinatown many times in the past, but never saw this side. So much interesting information! Our guide was born in Chinatown and really knew the area. She was excellent and had a great sense of humor. We visited all sites, as promised, and the Dim Sum Lunch was delicious.

Great tour and tour guide. Our tour guide, Gimmy, was very friendly and informative. She gave us a look at French quarter, Little Italy and Chinatown. She knew her history and gave us a good perspective of life in Chinatown.

Really enjoyed this tour. The guide had grown up in Chinatown so she had valuable information and insights. She took us into various food stores as well as into two temples. I would have liked a even more opportunity to see things not obvious to someone just walking down the streets. Did enjoy the lunch, with the guide telling about times she had eaten in that restaurant when she was a child.

It was a little unorganized, the tour guide was prepared but a little sporadic. I feel like there was so much more to Chinatown that I could have learned and experienced historically. The overall experience was great and informative with little gems throughout the tour!

Very nice tour! The scenery was punctuated by historical anecdotes from our guide. Alley insider comments made the tour feel genuinely interesting.
