Explore San Francisco shows you the Chinatown that visitors rarely get to see. When you explore Chinatown with them, you'll step off the bustling main tourist strip to the back alleys and side streets that are the true heart of the area. On the tour, you'll visit the places that are staples of daily life in the neighborhood: mysterious and exotic Buddhist temples, an herbalist's shop, a fortune cookie factory, a delightful tea bar, a music store, flower stalls and produce vendors. You'll also stop at Portsmouth Square, the center of Chinatown and the site of historical events dating back to the 1800s. You'll witness the bustle of activity that gives the area its uniquely charming character, including local street musicians, tai-chi groups, and men playing elephant chess, while taking in the delicious aromas and flavors of the tea houses, incense stores and restaurants. Along the way, your guide will share fascinating facts about North America's oldest Chinatown and the largest Chinese community outside of Asia -- all contained within just two-tenths of a square mile.

Dan transported the 6 guests into the culinary world of Chinatown and North Beach in a relaxed, open, and adventurous way. We all loved it and left enchanted and happily full. Having grown up in Chinatown, he offered candid insights only a true local might know.... local history, customs (and etiquette in China), alleys, temples plus an EXPLOSION of food from sizzling dumpling soup, dim sum, BBQ, pastries, tea tasting, pasta, pizza, tiramisu, and I'm probably missing a few stops! A "do not miss" especially for locals who have yet to discover our own back yard. Thanks Dan for a wonderful adventure, a tremendous day, and revealing a new world at my doorstep. He sent us follow up notes too!
