I would highly recommend this tour. I have two adopted Asian children, one with special needs. This tour was amazing. Bob was kind, patient and had so much knowledge and interesting facts to tell us. I would love to do this tour again.

Bob met us promptly at the meeting spot outside the Chinese Cultural Centre. His tour started there and meandered through the oldest parts of Chinatown, in to grocers, herbalists, a butcher, and fish monger. Each stop had a story and Bob was great with our children, answered our questions, and used those to point out things that would interest us. It was culturally and historically enlightening for us as a blended family and Bob's knowledge of Chinese-Canadian history was impressive.

This was an amazing tour with Bob - my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Bob weaves together Chinatown's history, Chinese culture/mythology, cooking techniques and ingredients, folklore, traditional teas, and of course delicious food. We couldn't recommend a tour more highly than this one. Very well COVID-managed with all precautions in place. Perfect for tourists or Vancouver locals alike!

A great day with Bob in Chinatown, so informative (herbal medicines, foods, and history), fun (Bob makes it all fun), and filling (stops along the way and then a DimSum lunch)!
