Definitely will do this again! Dan grew up in Chinatown & shared history, how things gave changed since he grew up, and customized our personal tour for 2! Knowing we hail from Hawaii & he has family there, he gave us a wonderful experience.

Educational and delicious. Even though we had been to Chinatown before, our guide enlightened us to people, culture, and food we were previously unaware of.

Absolutely fantastic. Dan was great and gave good history and color of Chinatown's history during the tour. Food was a treat at each of the many stops, and touring the temple was the best. Great day out!
