Elsa was tremendously knowledgeable, and able to relate her own story with the history of Chinatown in a way that made the tour much more illuminating than a simple recitation of facts and figures. Highly recommended.

Our tour guide Eric was very knowledgeable, compassionate, and filled us with a lot of information. We enjoyed him as could feel his passion for what he does. We were amazed with reconstruction of the alleyways and the cleanliness showed us that how proud they were. Eric filled us with a lot of history that we found amazing. Thank you Eric for a wonderful time.!!!

The tour was very interesting and I learned a lot about Chinatown's history and present-day community. I was also very pleased to be able to support this not-for-profit program involving high school students, not only providing tours but also rehabilitating laneways.
