Mission District Culinary Experience with Alcohol Pairing

Find your way to the Women's Building in the heart of the Mission District. Meet your local guide, an insider privy to behind-the-scenes culinary information who will take you to some of the best restaurants, cafes and bars in the neighborhood.
Stroll past trendy boutiques and colorful murals. Listen to engaging commentary from your guide about the neighborhood's Latino culture and history. 

Stop at several local eateries to piece together a full meal, from appetizers to dessert. Locations may include an artisanal cheese café, a gourmet grocery store, an oyster bar and the city's most popular ice cream shop. Sip a seasonal cocktail and a dark Belgian beer along with a cheese pairing. Along the way, meet some of the establishments' owners, chefs and bartenders, who will give you a behind-the-scenes perspective.

End your progressive meal near Dolores Park, where you're free to spend the evening walking and exploring the vibrant neighborhood on your own. This experience focuses on quality not quantity.

Kayleigh was an excellent guide. We did the morning tour starting with smoked pork tacos and the most amazing bloody Mary's. This was followed by Cheese and Beer pairing, a vegan entree and the best ice cream we've ever tasted. Our guide was informative, entertaining and completely changed our view of The Mission district. We had no idea of its culinary heritage and this tour really brought that to life. We definitely recommend this tour.

Great experience. Kayla was a great guide and host. Learned more about the Mission district. Food was interesting and had multiple stops to sample. Learned a little history of each food stop and in moist cases met the owner who explained the food we ate.

One of the highlights of my SF trip! Avital was super energetic and interesting. We went to some great places and tried some great food. I wish I went earlier in my trip, so I could have gone back later to some of the places and gone on one of the other tours. Highly recommend to tourists or locals.
