I actually enjoyed this tour a lot more than I expected. Not only did I hear tales about those who had passed and may still haunt the area, but I got an education on Chinatown itself, the Chinese culture and feng shui, which I still don't fully understand but have more knowledge about it than I did.
Though it is San Francisco, I wasn't expecting as many steep inclines on the tour. So if you have mobility or health issues, keep this in mind. Don't get me wrong. The inclines are doable, but if you're asthmatic (like I am) or have joint pain, you will get a bit winded - so use caution.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a fun evening out. (And Four Seas where the tour starts has pretty darn good food as well.)Reviewed by: Deborah P, November 2013
This was the highlight to mine and my daughters trip, we had a lot of fun hearing about the history of Chinatown and the many ghost stories. We will definitely be taking this tour again.Reviewed by: luis b, September 2013
30 of us met at the Four Seas Restaurant at 7 PM and checked in. We were then broken into two groups and assigned an escort, who walked us around Chinatown's streets and alleys for 90 minutes describing historical facts and lore about the area. It was very interesting and provided us with a lot of historical information that made the rest of the trip more fun as well. The walking was up and down - it was San Francisco - and anyone walking with that stress will be challenged.
Take your camera and don't be shy about asking questions.

Not really what I was expecting slightly disappointingReviewed by: kazza24, October 2013
Let's just say if you are mildly cultured or at least have any remote knowledge of Chinatown if SF, you should NOT book this tour. No history, no spooky stories, no surprises, this tour was abysmal.
The tour guide obviously knows NOTHING about the history of Chinatown, Chinese immigrants or even Chinese in general. Most of the "ghost" stories were made up and the tour adds no value to your trip in SF. The worst part is, you have to walk with the group and listen to these BS for two hours. It was so boring and ridiculously stupid me and my partner had to drop out of the group 1 hour after the walking started.
I would NOT recommend this trip to anyone.Reviewed by: Ming C, October 2013
