What we’ll do

We’ll trace the fighting legacy of the Chinese immigrant experience in San Francisco's Chinatown from their arrival at “Gold Mountain” during the gold rush, the Tong Wars of the late 1800s, Bruce Lee's epic battles with Chinatown kung fu legends, and the Triad gang wars of the last few decades. We’ll begin our tour at a local Chinatown coffee shop. From there, we’ll discover San Francisco…

What else you should know

This is NOT your standard vanilla tour. Stories are edgy, true stories of brutality, prostitution, drugs, and murder. If this concerns you, please find another tour -- we'll miss you though:-)

Where you'll be

We'll explore the streets, alleys, and secret landmarks of violence and vice in Chinatown over the past 170 years, from the Tong wars, murder and mayhem of the 1800s to the gangland hits of the Chinese triads of recent decades. We'll also follow in the footsteps of Bruce Lee and trace his experiences in SF Chinatown with the local community and how those interactions changed fighting and the perception of the Chinese worldwide forever.
