Must do activity in San Francisco
We are not new to food tours. This is one of the best we have experienced. It was extremely well planned. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was obvious she prepared in advance for our adventure. Every vendor was expecting us and she knew the behind the scenes info one expects to hear from a tour guide. She had an answer for all of our questions and was conscientious about making sure we could all hear her. Definite 5 star activity!

Go On An Empty Stomach
Guaranteed to fill your tummy and quench your curiosity about the ferry building and it’s history. Travis was exceptional! His knowledge about the food and the history was impressive. It was informative, fun, and filling! All of the stops offered first class tastings. We’ve been on other food tours and left hungry. Not on this one! If you’re a foodie and/or a history nut, Travis’s tour is for you!

Dec 2019
The Ferry Building Food Tour is a great experience and Santino made it fabulous. He was friendly, inviting, knowledgeable and fun. I brought my 87-year old mom on the tour who is very interested in food/nutrition. She asked a lot of questions and he was very patient and informative while still keeping all of us involved. The logistics were flawless as they were on my last Edible Excursions tour and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

One of the best food tours one can do in SF
Sep 2019
Carol did an amazing job as our guide for the Edible Excisions tour of the Ferry Building. She knew every intricate detail about each variety of food she presented to us and really is a food connoisseur, or a "foodie" as the millennial's say nowadays. The transitions from savory to sweet had our group very excited for what was to come next. Would definitely recommend to any group trying to get a taste of the eateries San Francisco has to offer.

Our tour guide for the food tour was Joshua, and he was awesome! He gave us not only the history of the Ferry Building but also of all the background on the many vendors we visited. This was the best tour we went on while visiting the San Francisco area.
