A CITY WITHIN A CITY
San Francisco's Chinatown is the oldest Chinatown in North America and the
largest Chinese community outside Asia. The reality of Chinatown is that there
are two Chinatowns: One belongs to the locals, the other charms the tourists.
They overlap and dance with each other, drawing more visitors annually than
the Golden Gate Bridge. At Explore San Francisco, we show you the cityas a
local, so wewill indeed take you to the touristy area but we will also escort
you into thealleys and side streets where the residentslead their lives,
usually unseen by most tourists.
We are going to see the sights and we'll be transported to another,
more exotic world. We will sip exotic teas in a gourmet tea shop.
We'll watch cookies being made at a fortune cookie factory. We'll even
go to a Buddhist Temple. These are not things that you would find on your own.
Exploring San Francisco with us is like seeing the city with a friend. Our
groups are small and are guides not only have the freedom to, but rather
are encouraged to show our guests their own favorite places, the ones that
they would show their own family and friends. We don't follow a script or
read from pre-printed manual like they might on a bus tour. Our guides are
all chosen because of their enthusiasm and their intimate knowledge of the
neighborhood that they will be showing off to you. Our goal is to show you
the City, the real City, as a local. So put down the guidebook and come,
Explore San Francisco with us.
This is an easy to moderate walk with some mild uphill blocks.
