    Mike was Awesome!!

    What a fun tour! Good size group, 5 couples, and wonderful guide. He had lots of great stories and knew lots of local history. He even (after checking with everyone to make sure it was ok with us) added 20 or so minutes of more fun stops. Highly recommend this tour!!

    Informative, unique, entertaining underground tour

    We were very pleased with our tour of Kensington Market & Chinatown. Our tour guide knew quite a bit about each area and offered suggestions on things we could do in each area based on our likes/dislikes. He was friendly, available (even during a cold downpour), and eager to show us around. It's nice to see a side of a city that is normally unexposed to travelers.
