A+ experience! An outstanding food and educational tour of SF’s North Beach area. We ate great food, threw-back tasty and refreshing drinks, and learned interesting insights about this SF “Little Italy” neighborhood. My wife and I lived in the Bay Area over twenty years ago and like to revisit parts of the city when we come back. In early February... More

I went with a few family members on the North Beach tour that was co-led by Corinne and Maria. It was amazing! It struck just the right balance of talking about the history of the neighborhood and the restaurants. I loved that it was so personal when the restaurant owners came out to talk to us to share their passion.... More

I recently had the pleasure of going on both the Mission District tour with Leila and the Union Square Cocktail tour with Cecilia. Avital Tours brings to life the food you're eating, restaurants you visit, and landmarks you pass by, by telling stories and delivering history. Both guides were very knowledgable and great, especially with making everyone feel welcomed and... More

I had an amazing cocktail tour with our guide Cecilia. She was insightful, friendly, and accommodating throughout the entire tour. The drinks were amazing and it was fun getting to know the bartenders on a deeper level. They provide a great history of the drinks / bar. I highly recommend it.

My group of 11 20–30-somethings had so much fun on our food tour of North Beach! Cecilia was a fantastic guide who clearly has a knack for making the environment fun and wrangling people. Most of us live in SF and I'd been on a tour of North Beach before but I still learned some new facts. Highly recommended for... More

The length, mix of restaurants, and size of the tour was perfect. Not too long, the right amount of food, and everyone was super nice. Couldn't recommend a better way to see the Mission.

Best tour I have ever been on! We had the most amazing tour of the North Beach area. Not only was the food delicious, but we learned so much about the history of this area. Our guide, Corrine knew all the owners of the restaurants and each of them gave us lots of background information regarding their family and the... More

We booked the North Beach food tour as an evening event during our company meeting. Cecilia was our guide and she was outstanding. She's extremely personable, energetic and perfect in this role. She herded 18 of us around without a hitch and somehow learned and remembered everyone's name. She made the tour so entertaining, helping us learn about the history... More

We booked the Mission District food tour for our recent vacation in San Francisco. It was so much fun. Kyla was an awesome host!! Everything was really tasty but the churros we had for dessert were THE BEST!! It was a really fun experience!
