My wife and I have been coming to San Francisco 5-6 times a year for the last 35 Years. We had the PLEASURE of taking this wonderful journey with Jim to places we have never known about or seen. I would strongly recommend this journey for both locals and visitors alike, it was great.

I would highly recommend this tour. The guide was excellent giving history and an insight into the Chinese culture. He went above and beyond to make the tour the best it could be. I especially like the tea tasting, fortune cookie factory and bakery. North beach was good as well.

We loved this tour! We had already walked around Chinatown on our own but missed so much . Our guide took us for Moon Cakes in an traditional bakery, and tea tastings in a Chinese tea shop! We had our fortunes read in a temple and designed our our fortunes for hand made fortune cookies! We then crossed over into the North Beach area. We saw street art, book stores, Italian restaurants and music venues. We saw art by Banksy! A great tour!
