    I recently did the walking food tour of the Mission with Mark and couldn't rate it highly enough.

    The walk itself and history of the area was really interesting, and showcased a district I didnt see on the bus tour of the city. There are hundreds of murals in the district, alot tucked away down non descript alleyways you might not otherwise take a look down with some insights on the murals and what they depict.

    There were 5 well spaced food stops on the tour, and our group was certainly well fed by the end of it, without being uncomfortably full (little bags were provided to store leftovers for those who had them). None of the food was too spicy, and alternate options were provided. The 5 stops were all delicious, covered sweet and savoury and included places that had been in the neighbourhood for years.

    Mark gave some excellent recommendations for restaurants for trying. All in all, I would highly reccommend this tour to anyone staying in San Francisco who wants to see (and eat!) something off the beaten trail.

    We joined Brian on his North Beach Food Tour on August 8th. We love these types of tours as you can really get the feel of an area and understand the culture somewhat by walking around and having your guide say hello to many in the neighborhood. I have been on tours where you get tastings of the of the food - on this tour the portions were great and at the end we thought we were making plans for dinner - when it was time to think about dinner we were still too stuffed from the tour. Loved the the two types of pizza - we went to Mario's Bohemian Cigar Bar for Chicken Focaccia and ended up with the meatball instead - very, very tasty!! Can't wait to go back for the Chicken. When we got to the fudge bar - we had to take it in a bag because we were too stuffed. Brian was complaining that it was too hot - 72 degrees!!! I would recommend - you get a a lot of history of the area and as well some good Italian food. Thanks Brian for a wonderful experience and day.

    Great experience! Ghost Tours are a family favorite when we visit cities and this one was top tier. Emma was our guide and she struck just the right balance between spookiness, history, and charm! The tour includes EMF readers and a few other haunting gadgets that augmented the experience. Definitely recommend this ghost tour!

    This tour is perfect for exploring Chinatown, learning about the history, and eating tons of delicious food! The highlight for me was definitely going to an authentic tea shop- the owner was hilarious! Our guide Cynthia was super nice and knowledgable about all of the interesting history. Definitely recommend!

    Linda Lee was terrific. Informative, funny, sarcastic, personal, hospitable, remembered names and was easy to follow. We enjoyed the tour and lunch after. A good guide makes the tour. We highly recommend her for this tour.

    The tour was awesome. Phil was our driver and guide. He's very nice and made everything to make us comfortable during the trip. The lunch delicious and so was the wine.

    Did not know our way around the city so was looking for a tour guide to show us around. We had the best tour guide ever. He knew so much about the city with a lot of history along the way. Also great recommendations for restaurants and activities. Highly recommend this tour..

    Amazing tour with an awesome tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and took us to amazing locations. My 5 yo grandson is obsessed with the Golden Gate Bridge and our tour guide made the trip memorable. Can’t recommend enough. Spend the extra $$ and skip a bus tour. You will not regret it.

    This was a fantastic insight into San Francisco history. Our guide Eric was incredibly knowledgeable, and fun, keeping the whole walking section of the tour interactive. He gave us clear instructions on what to do once we left him to head over to Alcatraz which was so useful.
    Alcatraz itself was fascinating, the self guided audio tour was brilliant and well worth doing.
    I would highly recommend this trip.

    What fun! We had such a blast with Teresa that it truly felt as if we had met up with a friend in Sausalito. She took us to restaurants that all had tables waiting for us, usually the best table in the house. She ordered truly delicious items at each location, paired it all perfectly with beverages, all with a smile upon her face, and laughs along the way. We parted with sincere hugs and hopes of our paths crossing again… just like a good friend.
