This walking tour is actually an eating tour. Starting with coffee and ending with pizza the tour was great fun and very delicious. Our guide, Blondena, lives in the neighborhood and seemed to know everyone. We're locals and know a lot about the area but still learned a great deal. Highly recommended.

The Little Italy and North Beach and North Beach Walking Tour was really fantastic. Our tour guide Blondina, was so informative and having lived in the area since the 1970's she knew her stuff and all the locals knew her.
We were amazed how much food was included in this tour for such a low price. Would recommend it to anyone going to San Francisco.
