This was a fabulous tour. Blondina, our guide, has been a resident of the area for many years and she was able to share stories, provide some history, introduce us to the locals and give us lots of tastings of the delicious food of Little Italy. After completing the tour in the morning, I was able to walk the streets and explore the area with a greater understanding in the afternoon. What a great day!

Really superb tour. Blandina is a real character and made us feel like locals - she seemed to know everyone in the area and took us to some interesting places. Excellent food too - I particularly enjoyed the deli, pizza and freshly baked bread.

Really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Blondine was very knowledgeable to the area and the locals. Food was great. My favorite was the chocolate dipped Macaroons. Would love to see other tours like this for other neighborhoods in SF. Thanks!!!

What an amazing experience. Our tour guide Blandine was great, having lived in San Fransisco for many years and in the Little Italy area in particular she knew all the shop owners and it was a very relaxed and informative tour. The product sampling at various establishments was a great experience. Definitely recommend as a must do tour.
