First off, I was a drop in with no notice. Linda kindly took me on and I was very thankful. I would recommend booking though. She was lovely, funny and engaging. It was awesome to learn the history of Chinatown from someone that grew up there. Her stories were very entertaining. We went to a traditional Chinese medicine herbal shop,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Linda Lee, a very knowledgeable guide for Chinatown. Her personal experiences and stories of her family really liven up the tour. Very informative, I loved touring the food markets and the chinese medicinal stores. I do wish we would have seen the gates for an iconic photo.

I live in the area and have been to Chinatown many times, but never on a formal tour. Linda Lee, a San Francisco and Chinatown native is an excellent guide. She is so friendly, warm, down to earth and hilarious. She told us great stories of the history of Chinatown but also of her own experiences growing up in Chinatown.... More

We had the pleasure, and good fortune, of having Linda Lee as our tour guide. Born and raised in China Town, Linda has been giving tours for over 30 years. As a result, she is well versed and informative about the background and insights of this part of San Francisco. Her experience is evident, as is her quick wit and... More

Linda was friendly from the minute she met us and others in the group. She remembered where each of the members of the group were from. The last time I had been to Chinatown, I had been overwhelmed and somewhat afraid. Linda walked us through the area and taught us so much about the culture of the area. I recommend... More

We booked the Chinatown tour after seeing the great reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed in the slightest! Linda Lee was our tour guide and she had such a fantastic personality. She took us round various sights in China town (the square, pharmacy, fortune cookie factory etc) telling us the history of each place but also adding personal anecdotes... More

This tour was so informational and fun. I had been to Chinatown before, but never understood the history, culture and misc. stories that truly bring it to life---which this tour offers! Linda does a wonderful job taking you through the highlights and making it a fun experience. If you can fit it in, include the dim sum lunch. Delicious nice... More

We really enjoyed our Chinatown walking tour with Dave Jung, a retired attorney, who grew up and lives still in the neighborhood. I gained a lot of respect for the Chinese immigrants who came there and raised their families in very crowded conditions. As Dave said, they found a way to get things done--without asking for hel, I might add..... More

This was one of the most memorable tours I've taken particularly because of the awesome tour guide, Linda Lee. I learned a tremendous amount of history and culture about Chinatown, but also the wonderful family and familiar stories told by our tour guide, Linda made me feel like I was simply walking through the neighborhood with a friend. She tailored... More
