We just finished our first visit to San Francisco in late June. We decided to do this walking tour based on the Trip Advisor reviews, and they were all spot-on. Linda Lee did a great job; the tour was one of the highlights of our visit. We were skeptical about whether the cost was worth it - couldn't we just wander Chinatown on our own? Yes, we could have, but then we would have missed all the fascinating cultural and history lessons that Linda shared. So much better than if we had just walked Grant Street and browsed a couple tourist shops.
If you have kids, the tour is esp. fun; Linda paid special attention to the two young girls on our tour and pointed out all the "Ewww, gross!" stuff in the grocery store and herbalist shop, to their delight.
We also did the lunch afterward, and it was great. If you've never done dim sum, it's a perfect introduction, since all the food is explained, and you can sample a wide variety.
