WOW! This was a very informative, interesting and historical tour. We loved it, we loved the food, we especially loved our guide Gimmy! She was amazing, knowledgeable and adorable! I would highly recommend this tour!

The tour was exceptional. Lola our guide was fantastic, her knowledge of Chinatown was remarkable. Especially reminiscing about growing up there and showing us her old house. The fortune cookie factory and traditional pharmacy were very interesting also the history as we walked. The luncheon was delicious and well worth the extra cost, especially having a local to explain the dishes. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting San Francisco.
Nice tour of Chinatown

We did only the tour, not the hosted dim sum because we had our own plans for dim sum elsewhere. The tour guide was very informative and pretty entertaining. We got lots of information about Chinatown that we wouldn't have gotten had we just walked through on our own. The tea room tasting was one of the highlights on the tour.

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.

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.

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!

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.
