I'm Chinese and a co-founder of a walking tour company in SF. I've always felt that I was born to be a tour guide because of the upbeat and positive energy I bring to my guests.

I know Chinatown inside out because it's been where I've spent the most time with family and friends. I know the rich history and the changes that took place to make Chinatown the greatest it is today.

As a tour guide, I have served 2,000+ guests on Airbnb and am looking forward to serving more like you!

Check my tour out, I promise you will have fun with me!

You can’t miss this experience if you want to discover Chinatown. CJ is simply the best, an entrepreneur guy who loves his culture and great way to describe Chinatown.

This tour was an amazing experience. I give tours for a living and CJ really impressed. His tour was an open book about his journey to Chinatown as an immigrant. He was very articulate and his stories were very engaging. He covered the history of Chinatown from its humble beginnings to present day Chinatown. We got to see the tourist section of Chinatown and we also got to see where the locals live and play daily. He also took time to get some wonderful pictures of our group. Then to top it off we got to try some authentic Chinatown cuisine. This tour is a must do when visiting San Francisco. It’s also an easy walk, but there are some inclines so wear comfortable shoes. 10/10. CJ you rock!

This experience is great for walking around Chinatown and learning the history behind it. Host is kind enough to take photos of attendees throughout the tour (huge plus so you don’t have to ask people on the street).
