The tour guide is truly knowledgeable (but not at all boring). The time with him fun and educational. He gives the history of the areas and explains how each of the 3 areas grew and shrunk as the laws and cultures changed. Plus, he has pictures to show how it used to be or look vs now. A son of an Asian immigrant, he knows where to find a great dumpling treat.
