Classic Chinatown Tour and Optional Hosted Dim Sum Tasting Luncheon

    What to Expect
    It is art, it is history, it is fun...but most of all, it's delicious! On the tour, time-permitting you will:
    *Learn about the history, architecture, folklore, culture and food of America's largest Chinatown
    *Visit a Taoist and Buddhist temple
    *Enjoy a visit to a premier Chinese teashop
    *See murals by local urban artists
    *Nibble samples of freshly prepared fortune cookies while you see the fascinating process of making them.
    *Peek into side streets and alleyways, following the heady scent of a Chinese herbal shop

    & much more!

    And, after the tour, if you choose, share a hosted luncheon, a "tasting menu" that includes a couple of 'dim sum' items followed by a popular entree, side dish and dessert at a traditional Chinese restaurant. Enjoy piping hot cups of tea, friendship and conversation.
