We visted and ate delicious vegan chinese, chinese noodles, take out from a dim sum bakery, vietnamese and cambodian food and visted a fortune cookie factory. The 3 hour... More

This tour exceeded our expectations. We tried a variety of foods with generous portions while learning about Chinatown's history as well as the stories of the restaurants and background of the cuisines. Carlo is an expert guide and does a great job sharing his knowledge and making it fun. We went to 5 restaurants, a take out dim sum place,... More

I took the Oakland Chinatown food tour and worried that I wouldn't be full, but ended up stuffed! The portions at the sit down restaurants are very good! I couldn't finish the food at the last two stops. This is a great way to do a little walking and try different kinds of Asian (though mostly Chinese) food. I'm Chinese... More

It was a fun group of people on the tour who all had a great time together. We did the Jack London tour with Katie as our guide. She was awesome, hilarious, and loved to... More

We had an opportunity to sample excellent and authentic Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodia and Chinese vegetarian foods. We also were able to look behind the curtain to discover the... More

We did a Friday tour in August with our friends and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Katie was spectacular - super well informed, very ebullient, enthusiastic about Oakland. The choices provided a fine introduction to JLS and a nice variety (sweet, savory). The walk exposed us to other possibilities for return trips. Highlights for us were Authentic Bagel, Miette (beloved from... More
