Terrific Saturday strolling through the Mission. In addition to the wide varieties of treats and samples, the murals were really amazing and a nice way to take a small break between foods. I learned a lot about the area and the food was really diverse and delicious. I will definitely return on my own to more than one location.

I took my brother on the tour as a birthday gift. We had a great time in the Mission and were stuffed afterwards. Word of advice: Only go on this tour with someone you want to make conversation with for three full hours.
