Judy is an absolute pleasure, and with a degree in history, she is able to give a fascinating historical overview of Chinatown. Her relationships with local businesses and residents makes it a joy to be on her tour, because she is met with so many warm hellos from all we encountered.

Touring Chinatown with Judy Lam Maxwell was an amazing experience. Judy has great knowledge of the history of Vancouver's Chinatown. She also has access to buildings that few do. I particularly enjoyed watching the elders play mahjong. Judy is also an expert on the the Chinatown food scene. And I understand that she is quite the dumpling maker. Apparently Judy gives dumpling making lessons in both Vancouver and Honolulu. I highly recommend Judy's Chinatown tour for both Vancouver residents and visitors.

Wish we would have seen more of Chinatown; spent the first half of the tour inside the restaurant. It was interesting but missed out on seeing much of Chinatown itself.

Dim Sum was the best. Great food I would not have otherwise ordered.
