Què farem?

We’ll trace the fighting legacy of the Chinese immigrant experience in San Francisco's Chinatown from their arrival at “Gold Mountain” during the gold rush, the Tong Wars of the late 1800s, Bruce Lee's epic battles with Chinatown kung fu legends, and the Triad gang wars of the last few decades.

We’ll begin our tour at a local Chinatown coffee shop. From there, we’ll discover San Francisco Chinatown past and present through the lens of what makes a city truly great: The notorious, colorful characters and the common folk's forgotten stories of struggle, conflict, endurance, and the relentless innovation and progress that emerges.
Other things to note
This is NOT your standard vanilla tour. Stories are edgy, true stories of brutality, prostitution, drugs, and murder. If this concerns you, please find another tour -- we'll miss you though:-)

I'm a live-experience designer and facilitator with a private consulting practice (mapomodo.com). Prior to my consulting practice, I was vice president of creative strategy at the largest brand experience company in the world where I designed learning experiences for a wide range of organizations.
I've lived in China and Taiwan for seven years, speak Mandarin, and received my M.A. in China studies (thesis on the Chinese Exclusion Acts). I'm also a longtime resident and lover of San Francisco and the martial arts.
This tour represents the convergence and culmination of my personal passions: storytelling, San Francisco history, the Chinese experience and creating joy and fresh perspective for the seeker in us all.

On aniràs?

We'll explore the streets, alleys, and secret landmarks of violence and vice in Chinatown over the past 170 years, from the Tong wars, murder and mayhem of the 1800s to the gangland hits of the Chinese triads of recent decades.
We'll also follow in the footsteps of Bruce Lee and trace his experiences in SF Chinatown with the local community and how those interactions changed fighting and the perception of the Chinese worldwide forever.

I've lived in SF for years but learned more about the city, its history and its people in the few hours with Marc. A deeply fascinating, funny and knowledgable guide, I think all visitors to the city should see it through the lens of this tour. I buried myself deep in a Wikipedia hole afterwards and will be seeing things around the city very differently going forward.. thank you, Marc!

Such a fascinating experience learning the unknown history of Chinatown and how it relates to San Francisco as a whole. Will never look at anything here the same way again.. brilliant, transformative and inspiring.. Dark allegories, but important life lessons in the stories. Highly recommend

I’m a SF local and I loved the tour. Felt completely immersed. Walked away with a deeper sense of history and appreciation for China Town. Marc is a genuine host. He has taken time to study content that no one else offers on the China Town tours. You’ll expect insightful stories with thoughtful touches throughout this tour.

Marc shared eloquently fascinating stories about San Francisco's China Town which are not part of the formal narrative of the city. He is a great storyteller and knew his stuff extremely well. The two hours went by super quickly without a dull moment and unraveled a whole "new world", exposing a culture one wouldn't expect. The walk is easy and covers a small area. Our view of San Francisco and China Town will never be the same again!

This was sick. Marc guided us through Chinatown in a way that you're just not going to get anywhere else. This felt like the real history of the neighborhood. I felt like I got a tremendous value, and I would highly recommend this to anyone.
