This was a fun and very informative walk. Rick is extremely knowledgeable about Chinatown and took us to areas that tourists miss. I have participated in walks around the world and this is one of the best!

I've lived in the Bay Area for 40 years and been to Chinatown many times - and taken tours in the past. But I loved Rick's tour - he was knowledgeable and entertaining - and I learned things I never knew. I would highly recommend this tour!

This is our second tour with Rick Evans and I have highly recommend this tour to my friends. It's even more interesting for locals. Rick is a natural born storyteller and is full of exciting histories of the area.

Informative, interesting, fun, engaging. One of the best tours I have taken for similar venues. Would recommend this tour for anyone....as long as they can walk up and down hills.
