From the beginning to end of our intro to SF Chinatown to North Beach (Italian) our group thoroughly enjoyed 'BRIAN' as our Host & Guide. Details ans and familiarity added to the expected tastes along the way. Even the weather cooperated adding to a fun-filled exchange amongst some locals and the rest of us tourists making us n feel right at home. BRIAN was great with the kids involving them in the history, sites, and tastings. Great Job !!!

The tour of Chinatown was plenty. The north beach portion was rushed and by then we were full and tired. The tea tasting was the highlight of the tour

Our guide Brian made us feel like he invited us into his home neighborhood to show us all his favorite places and tell us all about them. Good food, a sense of humor, and a little departure from the beaten tourist path made this the best of tour of our visit.
