  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Judy customized a tour for our staff event that gave us a great history lesson on Chinatown plus a look inside some of the heritage buildings. Very informative and fun, I'd highly recommend for both locals and tourists.
  • Judy is the best Chinatown guide around. She is very knowledgeable and gives you an insiders view of the neighbourhood. She is very connected to the people and places and offers a unique perspective. She gets you into places you would never have access to and introduces you to the people who make up the past and present of this very vibrant community. Her passion is evident when she shares the history and culture of the area. I would highly recommend taking one of Judy's tours whether you are a visitor or local. It is a very memorable and unique experience!
  • Judy is the real deal. A historian and expert when it comes to all things Chinatown. Her tour is fantastic and she can even give you great tips on the best places to eat. Highly recommend her tour!
