We did the food tour for a company offsite. It was an enjoyable tour of some the Mission's best places to eat at. And the stories about the murals, art, chefs and restaurants' origins were fascinating. Definitely recommended.

When I travel, I love to do food tours of the community. You are exposed to a variety of foods and establishments. This seems to be important in a community such as San Francisco...such a foodie paradise. I am visiting in July and trying to get an itinerary together. I've done some research and have narrowed it down to two companies...Avital Food Tours and Chris Milano's Foodie Adventures. Any thoughts? Pros and Cons? Experiences with both companies? Thanks!!!!

Check the things to do to see if either are listed and read reviews and also look at Yelp. You will be lucky if someone here has done both to give you pros and cons
