Melissa was terrific. She welcomed us, provided us with many fascinating facts about the Barbary Coast and North Beach areas, and took us to five diverse wine and food locations. Great fun!!!

“Best part of our trip to San Francisco!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The Union Square cocktail tour was the highlight of our visit to SF! My husband and I are experienced cocktail people and we still learned so much. It felt like it was catered just to us which was great. The group was small and fun and they accommodated our dietary restrictions with the food on the tour, which was nice.
Danny Ronen, who is a guest guide for them sometimes, attended the tour with us and we felt lucky to have a global spirits expert in our group!

Overall, it was fun, fascinating, the whole group became friends, we didn't want it to end, and oh the drinks were FABULOUS. So fun to do with out of town guests or just a great way to have fun with friends. Can't wait for our next trip to SF so we can do the other tours they offer. It was the best time of our entire trip!

What a fun way to experience a new area OR to discover amazing things in your own city! Wish they did this in Los Angeles. We would be all over it.

“What a great evening: the North Beach Food and Wine Tour”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

My husband and I were in San Francisco to visit our son and his bride who have just moved there from Toronto. The North Beach Food and Wine Tour was a perfect way for us to spend an evening learning more about the city, and enjoying food and wine, in a very beautiful area. I can't recommend this tour highly enough. THANK you, Melissa!

“North Beach Food and Wine Tour by Avital Tours”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

My wife and I together with 5 other friends took a tour of North Beach in San Francisco led by Melissa from Avital Tours. We had a very pleasant time and learned quite a bit about the history of the area while enjoying some good food and wine. It's pretty amazing that we all have been to that area many times over the past 2 decades or so, but we found out that we know so little about it. It was also good to discover new eateries that we can visit during our future excursions of the city.

Highly recommended!
