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

My wife and I booked this tour based on all the positive TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. The tour is laced with great history about the area and the people, much better than simply wandering around with a tour book. Linda did a wonderful job keeping things interesting and was a great guide.

What a remarkable experience. We meet our guide, Linda - who was fascinating and friendly throughout the tour - and then set off for our adventures. The first one happened when we came across a Chinatown community/SFPD event at Portsmouth Square Plaza (see photo). It rained for most of the morning, but we didn't notice that very much as we...

I work in the travel industry and find myself in SFO on a somewhat regular basis. Last minute and due to an extra opening in the tour, Linda was able to add one of my work collages to the tour. I was so impressed how quickly Linda got back in touch with me to confirm. I have been to Chinatown... More

Our chinatown tour was amazing. Linda, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the area as she had been born and raised there. I don’t think we could have had a better guide! She had a great sense of humor and kept the tour lighthearted and fun. Thanks Linda !!

Thank you Linda for guiding us around Chinatown and explaining about the rich Chinese culture . It was interesting, educational, entertaining and fun. We came away with a better understanding of Chinese life and culture in the Bay Area. We can highly recommend this tour to young and not so young!
