Started off on a Shakey note when we were put onto the wrong tour. But luckily we caught up with Tom and it was all good from then on. We went places that we wouldn't have dreamed of going. Tom had great stories and obviously knew his way around China Town. All topped off with a visit to a tea house. Very funny time was had sipping various teas. Great tour.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and sights were interesting. The food was tasty and local shop keepers, wok store and tea shop hilarious.
I would definitely use them again!
The tour guide, Todd, was excellent. He had a wealth of knowledge and a passion for history. He was a wonderful guide. Since we had a very small group, I think we were able to see a few extra places during the tour. We saw all of San Francisco and we had the opportunity to sample pizza from Cinectta, cannoli from Stella's Bakery, pasta, and tea from the Vital Tea Leaf. We had a blast.
We liked the food and the sights. We really enjoyed Robert as our driver and we thought Sasha was quite knowledgeable and both were very friendly and personable. The only downside was the other 6 tourists on the tour with us were quite unsocialable and arrogant. Although, their attitude was less than desirable, we didn't let it ruin the day because we knew we'd never have to see them again. We were impressed that the manager/owner came to talk to us at the end of the tour to see how we liked it.
The tour bus was very late picking us up from our hotel. Otherwise it was a great tour..excellent tour guide and a very interesting experience. Highly recommend.
I like this tour because it was a small tour. The tour guide was very friendly. She made it very comfortable. I like that we were able to see a lot of different places in a short time.
The title of this tour is very misleading. Yes it is a sightseeing tour but you only make one stop for food and it was not even that good. You stop in Little Italy for bow tie pasta with what looked like Kraft grated Parmesan cheese and bland cheese pizza. You never sip tea in Chinatown, or have a handmade Sicilian pastry at a surprise location. The driver was over an hour late to pick us up, and the tour was only suppose to last about 4 hours. Ours was about 7 hours, this was way too long. Beware...!
I would not recommend it. It's called the food lovers tour and you only eat at one restaurant and the driver was not knowledgeable. All he really knew about were bars and where homeless people were in the area. I feel like the name of the tour is very misleading and I was very disappointed.
Immediately remove "Food Lover's" from the title. By 1:00pm we had ONLY tasted pizza which unceremoniously dropped of at our table with no description. This is a SIGHTSEEING tour with a very light snack. The guide Diana was not knowledgeable on many of the sights. It was so bad we left the tour after the hurried Chinese tea tasting. The following stop was to be a pasta stop but at the point it hardly seemed worthwhile. The "FOOD" part of your sell is misleading.
Note from Viator: Thank you for sharing your experience. We appreciate all feedback both positive and negative to further improve the quality of our tours. This tour features many of the food highlights found on popular walking tours combined with the comfort, convenience and sightseeing aspects of a small-bus tour. It is unfortunate that the tour failed to meet your expectations and you chose to leave early--the handmade cannoli at the end is very delicious. We do hope that you will keep us in mind when planning your next adventure. Happy travels.
