Informative and told by someone who had first hand knowledge of the area and history. Food tastings were also excellent especially the dim sum

This tour through Chinatown with a 3rd generation Chinese man born in Vancouver was the best tour I have ever experienced! He shared Chinese history and culture, the famous Chinese gardens, the thinist building in the world, medicinal shops, an authentic tea house, markets, and traditional food. The stories and depth of knowledge from our guide, Bob, kept us spellbound while fully immersing us in Vancouver’s Chinese culture. I highly recommend this your to any adult!

Our memorable experience with cultural foodie, Bob Sung, was definitely a highlight of our trip! Bob is a knowledgable host and a fun guide to the yummiest Chinese food in Vancouver!

This was my second time through Bob Sung's tour. I brought my two friends, and they were as enthusiastic as I about the depth of Bob's knowledge, his communication skills, and the delightful variety of experiences in our day in Chinatown.

Yes, do this. We had so much fun with Bob, I can't even tell you. You get a really great tour of Chinatown AND you get heaps of delicious food. I'm talking dim sum, pastry, roast pork, it was so delicious. Bob took us to a Chinese herbalist, we got to watch a tea service and drink tea, visited shops had a great history lesson and generally got to know the neighborhood. Worth every penny and then some. Definitely a must do when you're in Vancouver - or even if you already live there and are looking for something a little different to do!

Bob Sung is unbeatable in his knowledge and passion for Vancouver Chinatown. Tour content was wide-ranging. Really enjoyed how he tied Chinese traditions to culinary habits.

Bob Sung is a wonderful host -- knowledgeable and friendly. We had only four guests on our tour, so we felt a real sense of getting intimately acquainted with the cultural and culinary aspects of Chinatown. Highlights of the tour were the hour long tour of the Sun Yat Sen gardens, the visit to a herbal medicine shop where Bob explained many of the items on display that other tourists only stare at, and the dim sum lunch.

This is a great cultural tour. Mr Sung is very knowledgeable about the history of the Chinese community in Vancouver and the cultural exchanges with China in more recent years. He's also a trained chef so he's very good at answering cooking questions, and knows what to buy from where to do the cooking things for yourself. You'll get some authentic food to try and wander the streets of Chinatown to take tea service and chat to the locals.
