It was an amazing tour! We couldn't have asked for a better guide. Isabella was warm, funny, informative, and the food were delicious. The 12 of us were stuffed by the time the tour ended. The best tour guide I have ever had!

Isabella was so welcoming, patient and kind, and knew so much about the area. We loved the food and especially the sticky cakes to start and the tea tasting! I would recommend anyone slightly interested in the SF Chinese food scene to do this tour. Was tons of fun.

Isabella was a wonderful tour guide! Informative, friendly, and a pleasure to be around. She took us to great local locations around China town. I got it for a present for my dad and aunt and it was a total hit!

Our guide was actually Lauren. She did a great job! She made it fun and interesting. We got way more food than expected (which was great!). We gave her a money tip.

Isabella was a delight! We were a team all meeting for the first time in person and learned new things, ate some wonderful food and got to know the city a bit better. She was so warm and funny and personable - really just a model tour guide.

Brian treated us to a great tour of Chinatown and Little Italy. The food was delicious and he shared a lot of local history. The tour exceeded our expectations.

Brian gave us a wonderful tour of China Town and North Beach Italian cuisine. His knowledge of San Francisco history enhanced the intrigue of the culinary tour. His relationships with locals gave us access to the owners of restaurants and shops with authentic local foods. The most unique part of the tour was sampling healthy teas from China. Brian had a tasteful sense of humor and brought insights from growing up in San Francisco. I would highly recommend Brian’s tour. You will laugh, learn history and enjoy delightful local Chinese and Italian foods and treats.
