Yummy & Informative Tour
Cynthia did a great job with this food tour. We visited about 8 places in total and had a wide variety of things we got to try. These were all locally owned places that helped us learn more about the area. I’d recommend this for your breakfast/lunch. Be sure to wear your walking shoes.

A tasty stroll through North Beach
Jun. 2021
The tour guide was friendly as she led us through the neighborhood. We tasted some excellent food along the way at a variety of locations. The small group allowed us to sit and chat at each stop.

Did I mention how tasty the food was?

Also I'd like to thank this tour group for coming up with a solution when some confusion on the TripAdvisor site caused us to miss our scheduled tour.

Brian accommodates all ages and needs
May 2021
We had an absolute wonderful time on our tour with our guide, Brian. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny, and we enjoyed spending time with him. He accommodated the many "additional" needs requested by my 5 year old and my retired mother at the same time :) This included a visit to the playground, an extra slice of princess cake, and some time out of the chilly fog for my mom. The food was plentiful and delicious and I would recommend this to tourists, corporate events, and fellow San Franciscans who are looking to discover new neighborhoods.

The company owner was incredibly kind and when he had to move my originally requested date due to an illness, he was more than generous in helping find a new time that worked for us. I would definitely use this company again!

Great mix of food and information on Little Italy tour
May 2021
Awesome tour with Cynthia through Little Italy and North Beach. The food was amazing! Don't eat before the tour, you will need an empty stomach to eat all the free and delicious food you get on the tour. If you have a sweet tooth, you will love the stop at Z. Cioccolato Fudge. Cynthia was the perfect guide.
