This tour was a scam - the tour operator did not show up for the tour. We called the number listed on the confirmation, but it was disconnected -- "The number you've reached is not a working number." Additionally, the numbers given to us for the tour guides were also not working numbers.

Our tour was canceled the night before because the company said it was going out of business.

Dan was our guide and he made the tour personal, entertaining, and fun. I will recommend it to everyone who wants to learn more about Chinatown.
