Best Chinatown Walking Tour - 2007
Wok Wiz Chinatown Walking Tours and Cooking Center
Looking for a place to ditch your visiting relatives for an afternoon? They'll thank you if you drop them off at Shirley Fong-Torres' Wok Wiz Chinatown Walking Tour. On the daily tours, visitors follow Fong-Torres and her Cantonese-speaking tour guides around Chinatown to learn about neighborhood history, taste Chinese dim sum, and visit local herbalists. The tour passes through some of Chinatown's most historic alleys where Fong-Torres might pop into the open backdoor of a restaurant kitchen and invite the chef out to say hello. For the adventurous eaters, Wok Wiz also offers a tour called "I Can't Believe I Ate My Way Through Chinatown." The tour is a lesson in Chinese food history that starts off with dim sum from the many small delis in Chinatown and finishes with a multi-course lunch. The Wok Wiz daily tour is $40 per person including dim sum lunch, $28 for the walk only. The "I Can't Believe I Ate My Way Through Chinatown" tour is $80 per person.
