Linda is a wonderful guide. She gave us an insiders tour of Chinatown complete with a trip to a fortune cookie factory! We stopped at several shops where she explained the history and culture of Chinatown. I highly recommend it.

Dear Karen G:

Thank you for your compliments. A visit to the factory is included with every tour.
The difficulty is getting in! It's a very popular stop and my goal is to get in and out before the crowds come, so that we can visit other places most visitors don't wander in.
I'm glad you enjoyed your tour with us.

This was seriously fun. If you want to learn about Chinatown from someone who grew up there this is great way to do it. She took us into places I would not have gone on my own, made this western skeptic slightly uncomfortable (in a good way,) and managed to teach some entertaining history in the meantime. Lunch was totally worth the upcharge as well.

We chose All About Chinatown Tours from reading all of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Well, all I can say is that 300 or so TripAdvisor members posting 'Excellent' reviews were not wrong. We met Linda on the edge of Chinatown. Linda arrived 10 minutes early for our private walking tour. We were treated to a very in-depth experience of Chinatown from a resident who was born there. We visited so many places, to mention a few, a Chinese herbalist / apothecary shop, a Cookie factory, the Chinese Benevolent Society, a food market, the old telephone exchange where in the old days the telephonists understood most of the dialects spoken, and finally a tea shop where we were treated to several different teas. Linda pointed out so many architectural features of the buildings we were passing, and explained the family clubs to us. If you want a walking tour where you will really get to see and learn some of the Chinese culture, All About Chinatown Tours is the one to book.

How could we come to San Francisco with learning about Chinatown? Chinatown native Linda Lee gave us a colorful tour with lots of information about the area's history and culture. Our group was small, so it was easy to follow her, hear her, and see her illustrative photos and diagrams. She charmed the three children in our group. In addition to general facts, we visited an Asian apothecary, a Buddhist temple, a Chinese cookie factory, the Chinese Benevolent Society, and an Asian food market. Wow, lots of stuff to experience first hand. Linda regaled us with her humorous dialogue based on characters from her past and was happy to answer all questions and more. My husband and I had a lot of fun and recommend this wonderful tour.

Best money spent and highlight of our San Francisco trip!! Being our first time to Chinatown we wouldn't have know where to start but with this tour we saw it all!!! Linda Lee was so much fun and so knowledgeable. I just can't say enough how much fun we had, my 7 year old daughter is still talking about our adventure!
