    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.
