    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Mission District, Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

    Your San Francisco food-tasting tour of the Mission District kicks off with a breakfast of coffee and donuts. Sink your teeth into an artisan-made treat fashioned from locally sourced, organic ingredients. Choose from an eclectic selection of donuts, ranging from bacon maple apple to chocolate rose to lemon and thyme, perfectly paired with your cup 'o joe.
    Your guide introduces you to the neighborhood and its legendary food scene. Stop at a local panaderia, or Mexican bakery, emblematic of the Mission District's Latino culture. Bite into pan dulce, or Mexican sweet bread, made fresh daily, and wash it down with refreshing agua fresca, a blended fruit drink.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Stop At: Balmy Alley Murals, Off 24th Street Parallel to Treat Ave and Harrison Street between 24th & 25th Streets., San Francisco, CA 94110

    Continue on to see the murals located along Balmy Avenue, an area with artistic roots dating back several decades. Then sample pie from a local shop, and find your own slice of joy in strawberry rhubarb or perhaps a roasted cauliflower and black olive quiche made with free-range eggs and organic dairy.
    After a taste of these delights, hop on a bus (ticket at own expense) and travel a few minutes down the heart of Mission Street, making your way to one of the oldest and most beloved taquerias in the neighborhood for a sampling.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Clarion Alley Murals, Clarion Alley What3words: ///royal.crown.stay, San Francisco, CA 94103

    Then proceed on foot to Clarion Alley, where you'll find the second largest collection of murals in the Mission — more contemporary than Balmy Avenue and lined with colorful graffiti. Your guide takes you to the center of the city's hipster scene at the Mission’s best thrift stores and one of the trendiest bakeries where you can grab a final snack.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Mission Dolores Park, Dolores Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

    Conclude your 2.5-hour food tour at Dolores Park and the nearby Mission Dolores church.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: San Francisco Urban Adventures, San Francisco, CA

    Spend as much time as you like here, learning about the history and stories that built San Francisco.

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    I've been to San Francisco a few times and never really connected with the city before taking this tour of the Mission District. The food and art were awesome! Anne-Marie was a fantastic guide.

    Yes, I think she’d enjoy this tour. The murals are exquisite, but also socially and politicaly charged. Food is fantastic, not to mention exotic! — Marlene
