The tour guide was a no-show. There was no tour. Almost a day later, there has been no return of my message to "Tracy" at the tour guide's office. I also still have not gotten confirmation of a refund from her or from Goldstar. AVOID this one.

Our guide was earnest and pleasant but very poorly informed. His response to most questions was, "I'll have to make a note to check that out." The tour was very slow paced and one participant commented, "I can't walk this slow." There was lots...continued

This was a very fun experience. Our guide Dan grew up in Chinatown so he shared a lot of personal stories with us which was fascinating to hear. We got to see the hidden side of Chinatown that you would only discover if you had lived in...continued

Daniel was the best. Since he grew up in Chinatown, he knew the ins and outs, the history, and the store keepers at the places we visited. He shared his family stories from when he was a child. The tour was 4 hours and worth every minute of...continued

Dan was a very personable and well-informed tour guide. The chosen stops on the tour were fun and interesting. All good except that there were times when the sidewalk crowds and traffic made it difficult to hear Dan's explanations... But...continued

It was good, but really nothing you couldn't do yourself with a Lonely Planet or some other guidebook.

Our guide was well informed and precise in his information. He had notes to refer to whenever he was unsure about a specific fact, which was great. We got to see many things we would not have known about without out guide, including access to 2...continued

Dan was a great guide! Growing up in Chinatown he really had a feel for the little city within the big city. I would certainly take another tour with Dan and will be returning to Chinatown to eat at some of the restaurants he recommended.

We had a great time. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and also very personable.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who is new to San Francisco or has visited several times, but not behind the scenes.

Our guide Alex was very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. He showed us areas I never knew existed (and I've lived in SF for 7 years), plus great places even along touristy Grant Ave. I would definitely take another tour the Explore SF group.
