Go beyond the gate with expert guide, Jacqueline Church, on BHV’s private Chinatown Experience Tour. Guests will be treated to tastings of BBQ pork, mooncakes, bubble tea; and learn the fables associated with various treats. Understand yin and yang and its expression in everything from food to architecture to medicine, as we visit a traditional Chinese herbalist's shop. Explore the abundant fruits and vegetables in the grocery store, peek in on the live fish, and get expert tips on ingredients and techniques to make stir-fries sing. The tour ends with dim sum at Hei La Moon, savoring dumplings, and more as the steam carts roll by. Come see why Yankee Magazine/New England Travel called Jacqueline a "great teacher and savvy guide.” While Chinatown may seem impervious at first, by the end of the tour you'll feel like Chinatown Insiders! Meet at 9:45 a.m. under the Chinatown Gate at the head of Beach St., corner of Hudson. BHV members and their guests: $72.25. Price includes 3-hour guided tour, tasting samples, dim sum, and a detailed handout on the neighborhood, which will enable you to explore Chinatown on your own any time. Please note: there are several shops with steps up or steps down to enter. Total walking distance is one mile.
