Our family really enjoyed the Chinatown tour, while the Downtown tour was downright boring for us. Not at all what we expected. especially not after having watched the video you sent about Wild SF tours. It just seemed a "normal" tour we would never have booked had we known how it is. No specials, would definitely not recomend. Mina does speak well, it's not so much avout her, but the overall tour/info given/setting/standing around in wind channels didn't meet our expectations. I also didn't like that it turned out we could have booked only the Chinatown tour, as some people joined us only in the afternoon. This should be clearer on the internet page. Chnatown was fun, interctive, music, interesting, different. Thanks for that.
The guide uncovered hidden restaurants of Chinatown that I have added to my bucket list. His presentation of the history of Chinese Americans and the adversity and mistreatment they faced in search of a better life was eye opening and inspiring. He did a great job of keeping us engaged with backstories and trivia. Keep up the good work. I will definitely tell my family and friends.
Very nice tour, Fischer was an interesting person. Could have seen more places, but everything we saw was interesting and came with good facts and stories.
