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.

Very well organized, fun and informative tour. Our tour guide, Zev, had a great sense of humor and made the whole experience incredibly enjoyable while guiding us through the Mission district - a truly culinary gem in the city. Highly recommended!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

The food tour guide, Zev, was very knowledgeable about the various places we visited, the owners and the different types of food we tasted. He made the tour entertaining and and provided interesting information about the murals which we wouldn't have found in a guide book.
