We had a great time visiting 6 different Italian restaurants and learning about the North Beach area. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the restaurants and San Francisco.

Excellent tour of the Italian North Beach food scene. Our guide, Jim, was personable, knowledgeable, and informative. The food at all five stops was freshly prepared and tasted delicious. While this was a 3 hour walking tour, it is very self contained around the Washington...More
