The tour was very interesting . Avital really managed to pass on the special vibe of the SF food scene. Besides the tastings we also got the chance to hear from the business' owners/employees about the drive and motivation behind it. We've also seen beautiful wall paintings during the tour and got explanations about their history and the artists themselves.
The blend of food types was diverse with just the right amounts. I recommend including the alcohol pairing - both the cocktail and the beer were very good.

To conclude - great tour, great food and very positive experience. Highly recommended.

If you are visiting San Francisco, you CANNOT miss this tour! Avital is one of the best tour guides we have come across and it's very clear to see her passion for the district and it's food as well as her excellent relationship with all of the owners/managers at each of the 5 places we visited.

The tour offers such a huge variety of food, with each place having its own unique story. The best part though, is that every place you visit is owner operated and you can feel the true spirit of the neghbourhood as well as the individual passions of the owners as you get to meet just about all of them!

If you are a true foody, this is absolutely a tour you should put on your bucket list. Also make sure to set aside some time after the tour as we promise you'll want to revisit some of the places you've been for more!!

Avital is a phenomenal tour guide. Her knowledge about San Francisco, her demeanor in front of a crowd and her passion shines through and makes her tours a truly exceptional experience. Avital's unique knowledge of San Francisco, including random facts and personal stories weaved throughout the city make this tour interesting even for locals. I highly recommend her!

I need to go on this tour again and again,because Avital knows the places, knows the history of the places, and best of all knows where to get the unique tastes! I've been living in SF for 25 years, in the Mission for 8, and have a new list of places for the be t month. Great energy, great connections with the restaurants, and super fun to hang out with.
