I went on this tour with my two young-adult daughters and all three of us loved it. The ghost stories were fun to hear, and we got to throw loud snappers each time the word ghost was pronounced. But what I found most interesting was the cultural and historical background of Chinatown and the back-streets tour. Our guide was charming and informative.

Cynthia Yee was an amazing tour guide, friendly, easy going, and very informative!

My boyfriend and I being locals, me of 6 years and him born and raised in San Francisco never thought to take a tour in our own City. I'm so glad we did, because this is a must-take-tour ESPECIALLY for locals. Even he was surprised how much he didn't know about Chinatown!

We learned so much that night, Friday the 13th, a surprisingly quiet night for Cynthia's Ghost Walking Tour of Chinatown. The tour was very personal as we were the only attendees that night. I guess people really didn't want to actually risk seeing a ghost on a night fated to be unlucky :D

I don't want to spoil the tour for future takers, but we learned so much as though we were hearing stories from a family member or friend, stories of Chinese heritage and history in SF we never knew before from secret passageways of escape for immigrants when Chinatown was first developing, to the bubonic plague in the early 1900s, tales of sailors and ladies of the night along the Barbary Coast, the origin of getting shanghaied, and of course stories of many an infamous murder and locations of ghost sightings.

Though we didn't see, hear, or feel any strange presences, we did think we smelled a whiff of perfume from a fabled lady killed at Fragrance Alley. I would absolutely purchase this tour again and bring more friends next time to impress them and learn even more about the history of Chinatown. Maybe around Halloween time.

Tour started on time and we walked all around the hidden alleys of ChinaTown. Our Guide told us many stories about the ghosts and legends from the neighborhood. It was a fascinating look at another culture right here. Well worth the expense and time.
