We wound up with a tour experience of just under 5 hours. Our tour guide Brian was informative with a dry sense of humor that worked very well for the tour group we had. The restaurants that were picked out were excellent as well as the experience at Uncle g's T store. Although there's a certain amount of walking in Valdez only a couple tough hop uphill sections so I would recommend this for anybody who's interested in a little bit history and a nice amount of eating.

Great way to really interact with Chinatown, it's food and its history. The highlight was the tea tasting- I learnt so much about tea that I will carry for the rest of my life. Plenty of food, with good variety. The Lotus seed Moon cakes were AMAZING- had to go back and buy some for my friends and relatives. Don't just walk around Chinatown by yourself, really discover it on this in depth tour

We learned a lot about the area, saw corners and alleys we would definitely have missed if not with a guide, tried many different dishes and had a great long visit with the tea shop owner.

Absolutely loved the tour! We learned so many interesting facts about the culture and the local Chinatown but also about SF in general and we’re given many tips on what to see next.

Lean was great I especially enjoyed the tea tasting with Mae
