5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

I loved the tour- Tammy was down-to-earth, friendly and personable and led us in a nicely paced, relaxed tour of four eateries and a wine tasting. The food itself was diverse, delicicious and generously -proportioned. We had a wonderful time and look forward to doing it again soon!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

The tour was awesome! We had just been in San Fransisco and did a food tour there and this one blew it away. Tammy was great and very knowledgalbe about the town and the food and wine scene. The food on the tour was incredible and the best we've ever had on a tour. We've done food tours in Seattle, New York, etc and this one was the best.
