"Fantastic tour that gives some great perspectives on its history and its future. Walked away with a real sense of the soul of this district. The murals are brilliant, the food delicious. Christian was our tour guide, possibly the best guide we had. Super knowledgeable. Being a well travelled local, he gave us some brilliant tips for the rest of our Californian adventure. Can not recommend highly enough."

"Isabella was a fantastic guide, we got to taste great food and learn all about Chinatown in San Francisco. My favorite part of the tour was learning all about the different types of tea and how it is grown and processed. I would totally recommend this tour for anyone looking to learn more about San Francisco."

"This truly was an urban adventure as our guide, Kai led us through the dark and narrow alleys of Chinatown and North Beach to amazing and authentic little hole-in-the-wall dives. It was fun and educational, as Kai gave us a sweeping overview of the rich and colorful history of this unique city: the Gold Rush, Tong Wars, bandits, burlesque, and blues. He covered a lot of territory in a short amount of time! Thanks to Kai and Urban Adventures!"
