Love tours, just not this one with Casey
Amy_E, May 2023
Casey was our tour guide. While being I’m sure a very nice person was not meant to be a tour guide. He was awkward, uninteresting, and not engaging. He was just boring and left us sitting there staring at each other. It was a small group and thankfully we were all able to entertain each other. We almost left in the middle of the tour :(
Response from Host, May 2023
Kara, the owner of Stretchy Pants here. I have issued you a full refund for your group. I am sorry you did not enjoy the tour; we never want that for our guests. Kasey only gives a tour for us every 6-8 weeks, and this seems to be a personality clash. Kasey is a local Chinese person who lives in Chinatown filled with a wealth of knowledge. However, he can be more soft-spoken. It seems he wasn't the right match for your group. I will make a note of it in the future.
China Town Fun!

Scott_J, Mar 2023
Jacob was great. Dim sum and egg tart were amazing. Uncle G is the best at the tea place. Bought some teas.
A wonderful shared experience in San Francisco
Kai_G, Feb 2023
What a wonderful experience we had with Jacob as our guide. We enjoyed the dim sum, the pastry, the sights and sounds of San Francisco’s Chinatown and learned about its rich history. We spent a few hours on our tour and ended it with a tea tasting experience unlike any other. We learned about tea and the culture from Ming who was knowledgeable and experienced in sharing the Chinese passion for tea. I don’t know what I expected on this tour but I feel like we got more than we expected. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting SF. Thank you Jacob.
Great time

Robin was great and very knowledgeable. Lots to eat! ! Fun tour, especially at the tea house! Our new Chinese Uncle had everyone in stitches!
Nice day in China Town
Kate_S, May 2022
The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. His name was Kasey from Stretchy Pants. The tea tasting was also interesting and the person doing this was a bit entertaining but R rated.
