We did this tour today and it was excellent in every way. Linda Lee the tour guide kept us entertained and informed throughout the various stops and even took us to her family's Buddhist temple. I would recommend taking the tour with lunch as it was authentic and delicious.

Had a Great Tour on August 4th with Linda Lee. The tour proved to be everything we had hoped for. At each location/stop (i.e., herbal store, food market, Chinese School, etc.) Linda explained (culturally) before hand “the why/how” of what we were to see. Then afterwards, she would ask if there were any questions as a result of our observations.... More

We had an amazing tour with Linda today - fun, fascinating peek in the real Chinatown, plus a dose of history. We went to a Chinese pharmacy, Chinese grocery, Buddhist temple, fortune cookie factory, and more. Then we had a fabulous lunch! If it's any indication of how great a tour this is, four people defected from your own tours... More

Linda Lee had a great sense of humor, was informative and personable. It was a really fun walking tour with lots of information on Chinese backgrounds, living conditions and a sense of truly being Chinese in San Francisco. The dim sum lunch was delicious and a chance to sit and chat intimiately with Linda. The walk was easy and we... More

This is a walking tour that I had been trying to get to do ever since I had heard about it a year ago! Linda is brilliant, funny, entertaining and definitely worth the year long wait!!! I took two well-travelled (READ: Jaded/blasé) children and an exhausted over-travelled husband, along with me. And we met a very intimate group of two... More

We were concerned our 8 and 10 years olds would complain the entire time we did a walking tour, and would find it boring. Not so! Linda was a very entertaining and funny tour guide, and made each stop interesting and informative at the same time. We spent just enough time at each location, and it totally made our visit...

This tour is so much fun. Linda Lee was fantastic, telling personal, informative stories. My wife and I had never been to Chinatown (not even the Chinatown in our home town, Chicago) and this was the perfect introduction.

All three generations of our family really enjoyed our walking tour and luncheon in Chinatown--which is saying something! It was full of interesting information, a variety of things to see and learn about, lots of laughter, and it all happened at a good pace! The luncheon food and service was excellent. I'm a vegetarian and Linda was very sensitive to... More
