San Francisco: Alcatraz Tickets and Chinatown Walking Tour
- Duration: 4 hours
The cars were awesome. Excellent way to see the city highlights. Only issue was with the direction from the staff. I booked the downtown tour, mind you this is my first time visiting so I'm not familiar with the area. My car took me on the park tour, I called the office when I realized I was on wrong tour. When I got back to office, they tried to charge me more for going over the hour. I explained that the car took me on the wrong tour, the guy said I should have told them which tour I booked??!! Umm, don't you have record of that, and shouldn't you confirm the correct tour is set up before people head out?? Regardless the cars/motorcycle themselves are awesome.
Our guide Isabella was amazing. She filled us in on history, little known facts, and fun conversation. She was knowledgeable and delightful. I would recommend anyone taking this tour to ask for Isabella! The tour itself took us not only to the restaurants that were authentic gathering places for the local Chinese community but also to the park where they gather, a Buddhist Temple, Fortune Cookie Factory, we met and enjoyed a Tea Master, and found the corner where 4 neighborhoods housing different cultures came together. After driving past the China Town gate a couple years ago I have been wanting to walk through ever since. This was the way to do it!
My food tour guide was amazing! She took us to the best restaurants, temples and a tea tasting at the end of the tour that was so much fun! I will never forget Chinatown, the history, murals and food that I have never had the opportunity to try before. The food was so delicious! I was so glad she sent us a list of all the places we went so that I could visit them again. I would recommend this to anyone.
Great tour! Good locations and good tour guides. I wish my Alcatraz tour was not smack in the middle of the day (1:00) because I was unable to actually use the bus stop at any bus stop because it takes 2.5 hours to just ride the entire loop.
Joseph was our tour guide today. We had a great time! He was very informative, family friendly. He showed us yummy food and really made sure we had a great time. Definitely recommend. Thanks again, Joseph!!
