Myself and 2 children (aged 12 and 10) joined Reigh's Chinatown tour. It was very informative and I would recommend this to anyone visiting SF.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs

Sorry but I do not know the answer. Please note that you only pay whatever you wish at the end of the tour. No money is exchanged before that.
