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!

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.

My son (11 years old) and I had a fantastic time with this. We have done other "foodie tours" in other cities but this was one of the best. Corinne was a wonderful young lady with lots of energy and a great attitude. She was very personable with everyone in the group and even a stray we picked up at one point. The restaurants we visited we prepared for us, very liberal with their portions (we were stuffed beyond any of our prior food tours) and staff was very fun to chat with. I have actually already recommended this to some friends that will be in the area in two months!

it was more than we expected didn't know that the mission district had that much to offer. I have to say I tried some things that I probably wouldn't have tried, like oysters vegan Mexican food goat cheese we had a great time recommending it to all our friends. We would like to try the other food tour on our next visit Corrinne was awesome she was very enthused which made us excited to see. great job money well spent

Our guide was very interesting and knowledgable. The food was so wonderful that after the tour we went back to the local vendors and bought more to take back to our hotel!

This is a wonderful tour that makes one feel like a local. Even if I lived in San Francisco, I would go on it. The food sampled was delicious; the insight obtained into the city and its diversity was invaluable; the tour leader could not have been better. A must do when in San Francisco!!

Fabulous tour. Very knowledgeable tour guide. Variety of food and stops was well planned and worked together well. Perfect way to orientate yourself to San Fran food! Recommend doing it on your arrival to San Fran so you can go back and check out all of the places after!

What a way to get to know a town!!! Highly recommend. Thank you Avital. Your tour was informative, enjoyable not to mention delicious. Loved that the tour size was nice and small allowed for easy hearing/ seeing/ moving around. Great choice had been made of our food stops. Loved the information provided about the mission and murals as well and you really knew your stuff when if came to food. Thank you. Would highly recommend and if we were in town we'd even do this tour again!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of the mission district. We chose to include the cocktail pairing. The cheese place we visited was our personal favourite and as new residents of San Francisco a place we are looking forward to returning to. Avital was very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend

Great food tour - Avital is so knowledgeable! She has such awesome enthusiasm for food and the Mission District! Next time we go back to San Francisco, we will definitely be taking another one of Avital's tours!

As a tour with food around the Mission district, this worked well. our guide, Corinne, was very passionate and knowledgeable about her subject and interested in her tour group. Starting off at the Cheese Bar was very good as this is a hugely different concept - we had a great talk by the proprietor whose knowledge is formidable. For me it went downhill from there - on to 2 very noisy restaurants : Hog and Rocks and Tacalicious. The oyster, ham and cocktail in Hog and Rocks were good, no getting past that, very good but then followed up by 2 tacos didn't make it stand out as special or different. The advertised blurb said "make your own empanadas" for example but there was nothing like that and really and although in the market, where an employee talked to us about seasonal produce, there was no interaction with any of the staff. As a committed foodie with a huge interest in locally produced / sourced and seasonal food, I think that this tour could probably be expanded but I really do appreciate the significant amount of work involved in putting this together. Just for me, against what was advertised and the price, unfortunately it didn't work.
