Learning the stories and meanings behind the murals in The Mission district was a highlight. The artwork was incredible. Our guide was fantastic and took us to some sites off the beaten path that we would never have found otherwise. The food stops along the way also made the tour more interesting (not to mention delicious) in that we got a first hand look at the local culture and quisine. Highly recommend. Was definitely a highlight of our trip to SF.

I have been coming to San Francisco since 1981 on business, but my wife came with me on this trip. We took this trip because we thought it would be a great way to see Chinatown and we were not disappointed. Christian was excellent. His knowledge and enthusiasm showed and he gave us great information and took us to many out of the way locations that a person could have never found without this structured tour. While I view myself as knowing a lot about SF, Christian made the tour very interesting and I learned a lot. Definitely a tour to take if you want to see Chinatown and learn about the place to eat and drink in North Beach.

I come to San Francisco for years and still I learned and discovered so much during this one morning tour. Our guide Christian was simply great, very enthusiastic. He really knows how to share his enthusiasm about the city and is very friendly. He will also advise where to grab cheap and delicious food or take a drink where the locals go. Thank you very much Christian!

We have taken other walking food tours while on vacation and this guided tour, San Francisco: Food and Street Art, was one of our favorite. We really enjoyed viewing the local street art and learning of the history of the mission district of the city. The walk was manageable and not strenuous and the food choices were nice. We especially enjoyed the street tacos. We would highly recommend our guide Anne Marie and would have no problem being a repeat customer. We really liked the small group size.
