I'm Chinese and a co-founder of a walking tour company in SF. I've always felt that I was born to be a tour guide because of the upbeat and positive energy I bring to my guests.

I know Chinatown inside out because it's been where I've spent the most time with family and friends. I know the rich history and the changes that took place to make Chinatown the greatest it is today.

As a tour guide, I have served 2,000+ guests on Airbnb and am looking forward to serving more like you!

Check my tour out, I promise you will have fun with me!

This tour was an amazing experience. I give tours for a living and CJ really impressed. His tour was an open book about his journey to Chinatown as an immigrant. He was very articulate and his stories were very engaging. He covered the history of Chinatown from its humble beginnings to present day Chinatown. We got to see the tourist section of Chinatown and we also got to see where the locals live and play daily. He also took time to get some wonderful pictures of our group. Then to top it off we got to try some authentic Chinatown cuisine. This tour is a must do when visiting San Francisco. It’s also an easy walk, but there are some inclines so wear comfortable shoes. 10/10. CJ you rock!

CJ is an amazing human. He is so full of energy and has great charisma. We really enjoyed our tour with him, he provided historical information in an engaging storytelling format. The walk was manageable and the curated Instagramable photo stops were extremely thoughtful.

CJ was amazing. He shares the story of Chinatown well, and also his own story. TJ epitomizes the American dream and I appreciated the way he ended the tour.

CJ was super knowledgeable about the history and current happenings in Chinatown. Exploring on our own would not have been nearly as educational, fun, or tasty! Definitely recommend booking this tour.

CJ was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the neighborhood. He took us to a dim sum place that he himself enjoys quite often. I even stayed and had a wonderful lunch after the tour. My favorite part of the tour was listening to his own personal story. It gave the tour so much more meaning. Thank you for sharing that with us! You can’t miss this tour! Absolutely worth it!
