We took this tour mainly for Alcatraz, but thought the Culinary part would be a nice addition. We really enjoyed the Alcatraz experience and audio tour, but the Culinary tour was spectacular, from the selection of restaurants, to the choice of each part of the meal! But most of all our tour guide Anais was exceptional! She was enthusiastic, informative and knew a great deal of the area. I highly recommend this tour!

Great wAy to see Alcatraz and do a food tour especially if you don’t book tickets 3months in advance. Guide was great and didn’t expect to be full at the end of the food tour. Anais is a great guide if you want some history with the food.

The Alcatraz Tour was great, it was interesting to learn of the history of Alcatraz. Ben was our North Beach guide, he did a nice job of sharing history and stories of North Beach as we walked from place to place. The restaurant choices were top notch and the service was terrific. We enjoyed meeting a lovely couple from Scotland that shared the tour with us. My family found the experience to be one of their favorites while visiting San Francisco.

In my search to find tickets to visit alcatraz on short notice I took a suggestion from other travelers to look at tours that included Alcatraz. I had never been on a food tour before but since we were only in San Francisco for a short time I thought it would be a great way to see Alcatraz and not worry about finding a place to eat. My expectations were exceeded in every way. The company was quick to answer email questions after booking the tour. The tour itself was fantastic. Our tour guide, Margarita, was outstanding! She made North Beach come alive with her stories and history of the area and the restaurants we visited. She made everyone on the tour feel welcome and engaged. Will definitely book a tour with Viator in the future.

Worth the price! This was an amazing and fun expierence! We started at Alcatraz which is phenomenal! Then we did this tour which our tour guide Margarita was such a joy to talk to! She brought us to some very unique restaurants with authentic Italian foods and some beautiful history with very famous people.
It was definitely worth it and I would recommend booking this tour!

The food tour with Margherita at Avital Tours was wonderful. It was also a great way to get tickets to Alcatraz, always a favorite.

This package tour was definitely a major highlight of our San Francisco trip. Of course, the Alcatraz tour was great - but the North Beach culinary experience and walking restaurant tour with our fabulous guide, Margarita, was superb in every way! My boys ages 11 and 13 say it was the best part of our entire trip to S.F. Margarita's enthusiasm for Italian food and culture and how it has shaped North Beach is just terrific. It was also my birthday, and she certainly made it extra special when we ended the tour at the gelato shop. Birthday candles on the best gelato ever! Highly recommend!!!!!!!

Our Tour Guide was amazing!

What an amazing experience for us and our two teenage daughters! Our culinary tour guide, Tolan, was the best! She was so fun to talk with and is very knowledgeable about the area. We not only went to fantastic restaurants, but also saw and learned really interesting things about the city. Although we booked this tour for the Alcatraz tickets, the culinary experience easily could stand on its own as a highlight of our trip!
