San Francisco’s Chinatown is the original “Chinatown” and the oldest in the United States. its restaurants are considered to be the birthplace of Americanized Chinese cuisine and its Dim Sum tea houses are a major draw to the neighborhood. Today, experience a very traditional and authentic lunch of Dim Sum accompanied by a scenic exploration of the city and its dramatic bridge.


From the pier, depart along the waterfront passing the ferry building and through Union Square to Grace Cathedral. The church was consecrated in 1868 only to be destroyed 28-years later by the great earthquake. Railroad baron and banker William Henry Crocker donated the property where it stands today. Pause here for photos of the French Gothic façade before continuing on for lunch.


In the heart of Chinatown enjoy a Dim Sum Luncheon at one the neighborhood’s popular restaurants. Selections include; Steamed Pork Bun, Shrimp Dumpling, Chicken Spring Roll, Pot stickers, Ying Chow Fried Rice, Shrimp and Pork Dumpling, Vegetarian Chow Mein, Broccoli w/Oyster Sauce, Egg Custard, and a varying Tart menu. Following lunch, depart for the symbol of the city, the Golden Gate Bridge.


The visitor’s pavilion of the bridge offers excellent views of the iconic span and informative information and representations of the bridge’s history and engineering. The ample shop offers souvenirs and books memorializing the city and structure. You can even venture out onto the span if you wish. At the appointed time, rejoin your guide for the return to the ship.
