We live in Oakland and wanted to expand our knowledge of Chinatown and find new restaurants to try...we did! Carlo loves Oakland and is welcoming and knowledgeable about history and food. We visted and ate delicious vegan chinese, chinese noodles, take out from a dim sum bakery, vietnamese and cambodian food and visted a fortune cookie factory. The 3 hour walking tour went by quickly and at the end, we now have a few favorite restaurants to add to our list. Vistors and locals...try this tour!

This tour exceeded our expectations. We tried a variety of foods with generous portions while learning about Chinatown's history as well as the stories of the restaurants and background of the cuisines. Carlo is an expert guide and does a great job sharing his knowledge and making it fun. We went to 5 restaurants, a take out dim sum place, Chinese market and fortune cookie factory. Looking forward to going back to all of these places with family and friends and sending out of town guests on this tour. Thanks Carlo!

I took the Oakland Chinatown food tour and worried that I wouldn't be full, but ended up stuffed! The portions at the sit down restaurants are very good! I couldn't finish the food at the last two stops. This is a great way to do a little walking and try different kinds of Asian (though mostly Chinese) food. I'm Chinese and from the Bay Area and while not all the cuisine was new to me, the places and actual food we tasted were new. I participated as part of a team-building event, but this would be great for a girls' day out.

A very well planned tour of amazing food and fascinating history. We learned a lot while exploring the edibles of this beautiful and vibrant city. It was a fun group of people on the tour who all had a great time together. We did the Jack London tour with Katie as our guide. She was awesome, hilarious, and loved to share the wonderful stories and food (and coffee!!) of Oakland. Recommended just as highly for locals as for visitors. We live in town and this made us appreciate it that much more!!

My wife and I both had a wonderful time on the Savor tour of Oakland Chinatown. Carlo was outstanding as our guide with tremendous enthusiasm, knowledge and a great sense of humor. We had an opportunity to sample excellent and authentic Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodia and Chinese vegetarian foods. We also were able to look behind the curtain to discover the secrets of how fortune cookies are made commercially. We learned a lot and recommend the tour for both residents of Oakland and folks that are visiting.
