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!

I really liked the idea of this walking tour because the itinerary had places on it that I probably would not have visited on my own. It is a great inside, personal look at SF's Chinatown.

We wanted to see Chinatown and get an understanding of the area. Linda Lee does a great job. You will laugh, learn, get off the beaten path and actually experience Chinatown. You get to gho through a local grocery store, which initially seems odd until yuo see how different the experience is from your local "big box" in the burbs.... More

We went on this tour with Linda and had an amazing time. Our 2 children, 11 and 13 loved it as well. Linda adds her own life experiences into the tour and engages everybody. She is funny and energetic. I highly recommend the dim sum lunch as well. All in all, a great tour!

Highly recommend the tour. Not only is it a fun learning experience, the tour guide Linda Lee shares a lot of inside information about Chinatown's culture. Overall, it was an insightful and meaningful experience--and well worth the nominal fee.

Linda Lee is the owner of All About Chinatown Tours and has been doing this tour for a very long time. In the course of the tour and in talking with Linda, I found out that we are the same age and I promised I would not reveal our age to no one. In all honesty, neither one of us... More

Fantastic tour well worth the money. Linda was our tour guide and she was great. She is very informative and highly entertaining. We took a leisurely walk around Chinatown making several stops for picture and to experience the real Chinatown. The fortune cookie factory and the Lee Family club were just two of the highlights. The trip to the food... More

Linda, the owner, was extremely nice, professional and easy to deal with. Her booking process was very easy, just email her and she answers very quickly. I had the Go SF Card and she gave me almost a 50% discount so if you will be using a Go SF Card make sure to mention that in your booking email for... More

We are serial touristy tour people, Found this, and booked easily via email. Fantastic historic and interesting tour about the best Chinatown in the US (much better than NYC, in my opinion). Learning about this town IS learning about US history not in the books. Linda, the tour operator, is engaging, funny and smart. Even learned our daughters had similar... More

This is the best way to see Chinatown. The place is extremely busy. This is, after all, a living, breathing neighborhood filled with people going about their daily lives. Linda makes the history of this place and these people come to life. And it's easy for her. She lived it. She explains how Chinatown came to be and what it... More
