When I asked those in my group what was the most interesting aspect of our trip, the reply was THIS TOUR! Linda had a group of high schoolers so Beth was our tour provider. Beth has a genuine passion for China Town. Learned so much about this part of the city. It was an easy walk and Beth kept us entertained with many sights. Highly recommend this tour.

Dear sammyb:

Thank you so much for letting future visitors know how much you enjoyed your tour with Beth.
You are spot on - Beth is knowledgeable and continually interested in the history and culture of the Chinese in America.

We took the Chinatown tour with Linda. She knows a lot about the area, and shared some very interesting information, but we didn't feel like we really saw much off the beaten track. Interesting but not a "must do".

Thank you for your review of the tour. The tour is designed to be a comprehensive visit highlighting the culture and the history of the area. We start off with history, then visit an herbal pharmacy, the food markets, view historic landmarks, stop in at a fortune cookie factory, and end at a temple. I have permission to bring guests not ordinarily open to tour groups, such as the herbal pharmacy and select temples. Many guests have told me that if they had not taken the tour, they would not know where and how accessible some of these places were.
That said, I welcome your suggestions as to what you would have liked to see for an "off the beaten path" tour. It's a delicate balance to be invited but not be intrusive when we tour a community of residents. I look forward to hearing from you!
