wonderful experience!

Brian was wonderful! So glad we chose a tour rather than go on our own. It exceeded our expectations!
Fantastic food, culture, history tour!!

Isabelle was a fantastic guide-so personable and really knows the city. We got to see so many places we never would have found in our own. She mixes in cultural and history with all the fabulous food (bring your appetite-there is a lot!). We will definitely try one of the other tours in the future!
Memorable stops in Chinatown

I enjoyed Isabella’s stories about Chinatown and the unusual shops, such as the tea shop and paper shop. Tasting a variety of foods was also fun.
Factual, fun and full!!

This was a fantastic tour that included a LOT of food, more than I could eat! Isabella was very knowledgeable about the history of Chinatown and certainly knew where to find great, authentic food.
History Culture and Food

Great tour. Cynthia was knowledgeable and friendly. Walking food tours are now something I do in every city when on vacation. Good mix of history, culture and food. Learned a lot. It was a lot of food! Twice we sat down in restaurants to practically full meals. The tea shop was the highlight. Full tasting of 5 different types of teas. Also visit and presentation to Buddhist temple.
Make sure you are hungry
