Joseph did a fantastic job with the history of both old San Francisco and Chinatown. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. He gave the perfect amount of detail and had clearly researched the topics thoroughly. We also loved all the food selections on the tour and even went back to one of the little restaurants for another selection after the tour ended.

Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic regarding the history of Chinatown, the places we visited and the delicious food we got to try. Overall it was a great experience and I would absolutely recommend it.

It was a good experience, the mayor of San Francisco was greed at a restaurant in front of me. Wonderful food.

Joseph was very knowledgeable guide and we enjoyed the tour.

So informative and educational. A truly amazing tour!!
