Overview
What to Expect
We will start our adventure on the outskirts of Chinatown. Our first taste is at a tightly packed local favorite. Ready to take on the walk, we’ll journey down the street of the infamous 10-cent haircut and learn how the sailors journeyed here in hopes of the American dream. Then, we’ll check out the fortune cookie factory and take a peek inside!Next, we’ll try four types of hot tea in a local tea shop and learn about the role of tea in traditional Chinese medicine.  Then we’ll check out the oldest bakery in Chinatown, a church filled with pictures of the 1906 earthquake, and taste a traditional Chinese snack. Feeling refreshed, we head to eat more food! This time we’ll try a pork roll, unique to the neighborhood. We will end at Portsmouth Square with stories of the Gold Rush, in the exact spot it all started!

Our tour guide (Kara) was amazing. She was personably, very knowledgeable about the location and its history. The food was delicious. The history was interesting and interactive. I would certainly take a Stretchy Pants tour again.

My sister and I went on Kara's Painted Ladies and sweets walk, which convinced us that we needed to continue the fun and do another tour by her. I'm a vegetarian, so I normally avoid Chinese food in San Francisco, because I'm not really sure whether I can trust that the food is
