Our tour, led by Linda Lee was great! It was quite informative, especially because of Linda's personal perspective of having grown up in Chinatown. She shared many touching, funny and insightful observations about life in Chinatown. She gave us a peek into historic events, especially important as they relate to today's struggles for the AAPI community. And our dim sum lunch was delicious. Everyone visiting San Francisco should treat themselves to the Chinatown Walking Tour!

Guide Linda Lee was funny and probably well informed but there tour overall was not very informative. She kept us entertained throughout but didn't tell us much about Chinatown itself, other than very targeted information about the sites we visited and a bit about family life in Chinatown. We missed out on it's rich history and its place in the history of San Francisco.

Didn't get all we paid for. Some of the stops weren't in the actual tour. No time at fortune cookie factory to look - we were almost trown out as soon as the cookie was handed out: "Are you buying anything? No? Then please move outside and don't stand there". Guide didn't bother to help us find our way after the tour, since we weren't going to the lunch, we weren't that interesting as soon as all the stops had been made.
