  • The best tour I have taken ever! Judy is so knowledgeable and she was able to show me a Chinatown no one else knew because she knows everybody here. We were able to go into heritage buildings that are not opened to the public. I not only learned about Chinatown in Vancouver but also around the world, and I now understand why this place grows to be the way it is. Very informative and engaging! Thank you Judy.
  • I went on a tour with my coworkers and having Judy guide us was wonderful. Judy was very knowledgeable and she knew the ins and outs of Chinatown. I usually do not go on tours, but I am glad I went to this one. I learned more about the history of Chinatown than I thought I knew. Judy had special access to get in to places you wouldn't be able to go in yourself. Overall, the tour was fantastic and I highly recommend you guys try it too.
  • Judy was extremely organized and responsive, even providing relevant readings before and after the tour.
  • Our group really enjoyed the tour which included the history of Chinatown, discussion of Chinese customs, and historical sites many of us hadn't had a chance to visit before. Our Tour Guide, Steven, was gracious and knowledgeable!
  • This was a very engaging tour for our school group. It was interesting to be able to go into some of the historical buildings, and to hear about how Chinatown has changed over the years, including hearing from the personal experiences of the tour guides.
