Enjoyable Informative Guide to Boston's Chinatown

Had a fantastic time with tour guide Jackie and the group :) Took the tour on Apr 23rd @9:30. Got a great overall history of the area as well as some info on general Chinese cuisine. Jackie gave it a personal touch commenting on her own experiences. And the food was just delish! I may have stuffed myself a bit at dim sum. Thanks all!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Boston's Chinatown last Saturday. The tour was informative, fun and delicious. Our tour guide, Jackie, was fabulous and provided information that was interesting to everyone on our tour who ranged in age from 9 to 65. We highly recommend this tour.

A Great way to spend a morning in Boston

The Chinatown Market Tour, led by Jackie was absolutely fascinating and fabulous! The tour had food, history, culture and humor! The information Jackie imparted was both personal and well-researched--fantastic on all fronts. I would recommend it strongly to both people who just want to know about Chinese food (and where to eat it in Boston) and to people who would like to be better able to cook Chinese food. There is something for all on this tour.
