The tour guide was a local native and very well informed about North Beach history and folklore. The tour was very enjoyable.
Blandina is a great guide, who has lived in the area for many years and really knows where to go to and what is good. Lots of tastings - bread, biscotti, pasta , pizza , fudge and coffee and the best cannoli that I have ever had. You will not need lunch after this tour! We also dropped in to a church and a chapel and she told us quite a bit about the local history and personalities. There were four of us on the tour and we really enjoyed it and would certainly go back to a number of the places we visited.
It was wonderful! Blondena was our guide and she was personable, full of information, known to shopowners, and made the tour!! I would want to book another tour with her.
We really enjoyed this food tour! With Jim as our guide, we learned so much about this area of San Francisco! Jim was great! It was terrific to be able to go behind the "scenes" in the bakery, coffee house, candy store etc. All of the food we sampled was delicious, and the people working at each place were knowledgeable. This tour made us really feel like we "got to know" North Beach!
A fantastic tour guide. Such a knowledgeable girl and handled all the questions so well. She was of Russian descent. The others on the tour were so friendly and we learnt such a lot. We would certainly recommend this tour to others
The tour guide had lived in the area and seemed to know everyone we passed. You could tell she loved the people and the history of the area. The tour and the food was fun. A very nice way to spend the day and get an overview of the area.
Everything was great. Tour guide was great, very knowledgeble. Almost wish there was larger food portions, But maybe thats cause I tend to eat a lot.
This was my first time in North Beach, and the tour gave me a lot of insight into the neighborhood's cuisine and history. Our guide was very informative, and he told us a lot of funny stories from North Beach's past. The food was also excellent, and I enjoyed all five stops. We stopped for coffee, pastries and bread, fudge, pasta and pizza, giving us a great overview of what the restaurants in Little Italy have to offer. I feel like we got a very thorough tour of the neighborhood, and I highly recommend it!

As a San Franciscan, I found this tour incredibly interesting. I don't know too much about North Beach, and our guide was super informative and shared a lot about the neighborhood's interesting history. I had also never been to any of the food stops, so it was a great chance to try new places. Plus, they were all really good, and I especially loved the pizza! Highly recommended tour for locals and visitors alike!
Great tour! Blandine was very informative and hospitable. Immediately we felt like neighbors. Thanks for offering this kind of event.
We recently took the Little Italy walking tour and enjoyed it immensely. The food was excellent and the tour guide, Jim was very knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are visiting or new to San Francisco.
This is a great way to see the North Beach and Little Italy areas. Informative, fun and you try a BUNCH of great foods! Our guide Blandina was super. She lives in the area and knows everyone and everything.
Wear good shoes, dress for the weather and come hungry! Highly recommend this tour.
Blondina was great. Recommend this for everyone. Lots of neat shops and good food.
