Strolls of San Francisco's Chinatown highlighting its history, people, culture and food with an optional hosted dim sum luncheon at the end. Award-winning and plenty of fun, our team of tour leaders are all born in Chinatown, are articulate and receive rave reviews - join us soon! Wok Wiz Tours has been in business for 30 years and was founded by the late chef/author Shirley Fong-Torres who designed her tours to showcase one of the most remarkable neighborhoods in San Francisco: Chinatown. Each year, we bring thousands of guests, of all ages, from near and far, to our vibrant area. Every Wok Wiz tour leader was either born in, or grew up in Chinatown, giving a very local flavor to the tour, and each speaks fluent English as well as Chinese. Wok Wiz Chinatown Tours remains a San Francisco icon. Featured in the NY Times, LA Times, USA Today, Bon Appetit, Gourmet, and Cooking Light, and multiple guide books such as Fodor's and Frommer's, the tours are touted as "top attractions" in the city.

So much local information that made our visit delightful. Loved visiting the Temple, food kitchens, "better" shops and having a personalized tour of Chinatown. Our guide Gimme was the best. All of the proprietors knew her and she definitely knew Chinatown.
