    Awesome tour! Isabella was delightful — I have been to Chinatown many times but still I learned so much. The tastings were perfect. Shout out to the tour company — I inadvertently booked our family for a tour on the wrong day but they we t above and beyond to accommodate us.

    We took the Chinatown & North Beach secret food tour with Mark and cannot recommend it enough! Not only did we try some awesome food but as a native San Franciscan, Mark was so knowledgeable about all of the various neighborhoods and history of everywhere we went. Mark even introduced us to a chef friend at a local restaurant (we went back there for an amazing dinner).
    Do this tour on the front end of your trip to not only get your bearings of the city and a cool history lesson from cable cars to Francis Ford Coppola and The Godfather to Chinese fortune cookie traditions, but also get some great recommendations of where to eat later on in your trip.
    (And ask for Mark!)

    First dinner cruise. Loved it.

    Seemed lol the ship was only 40% full on a Sunday night in early September. First deck wasn’t even used.

    Music was nice and soft first half. After dinner turned into a dance party.

    Lots of restrooms, gorgeous views, great food.

    The music was a bit loud the second half. If you wanted to dance that was great. If you wanted to talk you would be better off with a different cruise.

    This was our first time using a tour service and could not have been a better choice. Phil was absolutely wonderful and we had a great day.

    We have been on many food tours in lots of cities. This was great, we would have never found out about these places on our own. Learned so much and given so many recommendations on places to check out another day!

    My soup came out luke warm and portion sizes of the meals was a bit distorted and the included sides, I wouldn't call them sides.. I only got slices of a carrot, one piece of broccoli and a roasted pepper I had no idea what to do with but overall, definitely worth the experience! Loved the respectful Hostess and waiters!

    Alcatraz was amazing!! A definite must see! The food tour was good and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and chose good tastings. However, it is quite expensive for what you get.

    Robin was an excellent guide. I enjoyed the small group size and learnt a lot about the history of China town of SFO.
    The choice of dim sum and baked treats were very tasty . I would surely recommend this tour to friends and family.

    I worked with Edible Excursions to schedule our staff post-holiday party. Amy was our contact. She was so helpful, great communication & timely. Amy took care of all the details which made it perfect & easy for me to work with. Joshua was our tour guide for the SF Ferry Building. He was so delightful, knowledgeable & FUN our entire group couldn't stop talking about how much fun they had! I plan on scheduling another tour with Edible Excursions very soon!

    Our guide, Viv, was fun and well informed.

    The selected restaurants had wonderful food and wine.

    We were introduced to the best clam chowder we’ve ever had.

    We began with a Chandon bubbly and a cheese plate, moved to the restaurant with chowder accompanied by a lovely rose, and to Poggio for delicious gnudi with a great Scarpatta Barbera and ended with a bread pudding like no other with white port on an outdoor deck. Everywhere the views were great and the guide a good conversationalist.

    Great food at locations I would normally have walked past without giving a second look. Nikki was a fantastic tour guide and very knowledgeable with interesting facts and stories.

    I will be back for more tours with Nikki at Avital!

    This place is not exaggerating when they call themselves Stretchy Pants - we ate so much delicious food! - but it was so much more than just dim sum and tea. Our amazing guide, Jacob, took us around Chinatown where we learned all about the neighborhood’s history in a fun and engaging way. I’d recommend this tour for tourists and locals alike, and hope to use them to tour another neighborhood very soon!

    I’ve been on 20+ food tours in my life, and this was truly one of the best! Jacob was our tour guide and he was awesome from start to finish. Friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Also, the portions were full size at almost every stop! We even ended up with leftovers. I will surely book one of their other tours next time I’m in SF.

    We booked a wine tour through RST at the last minute, and I am so pleased with how accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable the entire company has been. Lisa was super helpful when we called, literally the day before, we were looking to have a driver pick us up and drop us off in Oakland for an 8 hour tour in Napa across a few wineries. Eugene picked us up at 8am and helped us chart an amazing day. We had a few winery appointments already, and he filled out our day with some really exceptional exceptions culminating in a killer lunch. Eugene was attentive, personable, entertaining, and super knowledgeable. Given there were only three of us on the tour, we really enjoyed connecting with him and welcoming into our family for the day! I can't recommend RST more for exceptional service. Feels like you're riding with a good friend...that knows way more about Napa than you do. 🙂
