Chinatown’s Culture & Cuisine Tour
This is our newest tour to date, which we launched last year and we’re still so excited about it! This tour will navigate you through the tiny, packed streets of Boston’s Chinatown where you’ll make stops for food, sweets, and drinks at six different locations. You really feel the hustle and bustle of the city in this neighborhood as Chinatown boarders Boston’s downtown. Packed into such a small area is a huge amount of history. You’ll learn how Chinatown started, the obstacles it faced and is facing, and how it has grown into the richly cultured community it is today. Food-wise you’ll taste traditional Chinese items, traditional Chinese-American items, and new creations invented by the next generation of Chinese-American chefs. You’ll also learn the technique to eating our favorite kind of dumpling, while eating them of course. Can’t wait to see you there!
