We loved this tour! We had already walked around Chinatown on our own but missed so much . Our guide took us for Moon Cakes in an traditional bakery, and tea tastings in a Chinese tea shop! We had our fortunes read in a temple and designed our our fortunes for hand made fortune cookies! We then crossed over into the North Beach area. We saw street art, book stores, Italian restaurants and music venues. We saw art by Banksy! A great tour!
