We read the reviews of Linda's Chinatown walking tour on trip advisor and were so pleased we booked it. Linda is so engaging and passionate, and you get such an interesting insight into this area of San Fransisco from someone who is born and bred in this area. Also great to meet a group of people from all over the... More

Linda Lee is the bomb as a tour guide. She combines a great sense of humor with a wealth of knowledge about Chinatown. We visited A Chinese medicine shop, food shop, fortune cookie factory, and a temple. We learned about the history of Chinese immigrants to San Francisco, the various associations, and the buildings in the area. Chinatown will never... More

My family and I took a tour with Linda of San Francisco's China Town. By ourselves, we would have ventured down the main street of China Town really without knowing anything about the history, culture, or neighborhood. Linda, however, took us off the main street, into a Fortune Cookie Factory, food market, Temple, and herbal medicine shop. The morning ended... More

This tour was fantastic! The tour guide, Linda, is knowledgeable, funny and goes out of her way to make it a worthwhile tour. She went all out on her dim sum meal. Furthemore, she helped me research some family background information that is so important to me.

Linda was an amazing guide. Funny, smart, prepared and knows Chinatown, the history and community. We saw things we never would have seen solo. Cool to be with a guide that locals recognized and acknowledged as we toured. Time well spent. I highly recommend Linda.

We took this tour last summer, Linda was our tour guide who was great, gave us lots of interesting info about Chinatown. My teenage daughter didn't want to go, but she ended up very interested in the tour. Linda has a great personality, very friendly and really makes the tour great. My favorite stop was the Chinese medicine shop and... More

I truly enjoyed myself and learned many new things. My husband and I will be returning to China town and take the time to walk around and enjoy more of the local culture, especially the food. I will be referring 1st timers to your tour. Again, thank you for doing what you do so that others can be educated and... More

We took this tour on Valentines Day 2015. Linda was fabulous! Very informative and entertaining. We elected to add the lunch on as well and we enjoyed that as well. We were treated to an unexpected parade due to the Chinese New Year and although I think it made the streets extra crowded it was well worth it. Would definitely... More

Many thanks to our tour guides, Lynn and Jim, for a delightful start to our day! My Auntie and I thoroughly enjoyed the Chinatown tour and lunch (highly recommend). Our guides were informative and thoughtful from start to finish. We came away with some wonderful memories and treasures. This is the best way to experience Chinatown!

Our family met Linda for the tour on a beautiful morning, just a couple of days before Christmas. For over 2 hours, she led us through Chinatown while frequently stopping to share stories. Walking the busy streets exposed us to so much of the Chinese culture, architecture and mystique. Highlights included shopping at a Chinese pharmacy full of ancient remedies,... More
