Isabella is amazing and SO much food to try!!
May 2021
Isabella was amazing! She is so sweet and knowledgeable...a very interesting and fun lady. There was a ton of food. We couldn't finish the final meal. Everything was tasty and we were even a little adventurous with trying some new odd foods. I highly recommend this tour.

Great way to experience China town
May 2021
The tour guide was very knowledgeable about aspects of Chinese culture and San Francisco lore. We snaked through the maze of streets stopping frequently to have a bite of this or that. Some tidbits were given to us and in some cases we had choices. The highlight was a Tea Tasting where we found out about the medicinal properties of teas, how to brew authentic Chinese tea, and got a chance to buy some. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.

China town food tour
We loved the tour and all the amazing places Isabella showed us. She was very knowledgeable and was always making sure we were comfortable and having a great time.
Food was good too! Many names of food I can’t remember.🤣
Loved the stories, history, and Chinese culture she was able to share with us.
My husband is a lover of wanton soup, and she bring him a container with the best wanton soup ever!
Thank you Isabella for this wonderful experience!

Would have completely walked right by the oldest temple without our tour guide!

I've taken food tours for a few cities as much for the food as the history of the city. Isabella was a wonderful tour guide. She was knowledgeable, courteous and accommodating. I would definetly recommend this tour.

Eat great Chinese food, learn about Chinatown's history, and make new friends
Dec 2019
My parents were visiting from LA for the holiday and we wanted to do something very special that they will remember. We decided to join Brian's Chinatown Food Tour. Even though we are a local, we learned a lot about Chinatown's history. Brian took us to famous restaurants and had us try great Chinese dishes (e.g. moon cake, hot & sour soup, pecking duck, and many more). Wherever we went, food was served quickly and we always had enough food to go around which was important for food lovers that we are. Make sure to come hungry! Service was great, too. There was a long line at the Fortune Cookie Factory. So while we were attending a tea tasting session, Brian ran and got us a bag full of cookies to try and take home at the end. Definitely worth the price.

Food and history in a fascinating area of San Francisco!
Feb 2020
Excellent three hour tour of Chinatown, and lots of food! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and focused on cultural as well as food aspects of the area. Would definitely recommend it as a fun way to entertain out of town guests, or even residents of the area.

Fun time with lots of food!
Feb 2020
I had a great time touring Chinatown with Isabella, who knows where all the hidden food gems are in the area. You will not leave hungry! She's also knows the local history and is eager to share her knowledge. A lot of fun!
