    Fun and informative tour
    Chris_K, Aug 2019
    Ben was a terrific guide. He was very knowledgeable about the mission district and food in general. The first three tastings were all good but would have preferred more selection. Other food tours we’ve been on have had more stops and typically multiple tastings at each stop, sometimes served family style. The last stop for ice cream was just okay. Ben was a good storyteller and tour would have been a five if more food tastings.
    Super Fun and Delicious!
    sarajane_l, Mar 2019
    This is the best way to get acquainted with the Mission District. I had no idea how many amazing bars and restaurants have popped up there. Each stop was fantastic and our guides had arranged for the owners or managers of each establishment to meet with us and tell their stories. I highly recommend!!

    We had an excellent time touring the Mission District in San Francisco with our tour guide Daniel. He told us the history of many of the murals and also provided interesting information about the artists. We began our tour with a cheese/beer tasting at Mission Cheese. Next stop was Tacolicious where we enjoyed an excellent fish taco and two samples of margaritas, one of which was prepared with a habanero tequila Oh my God!. We then proceeded on to Gracias Madre where we were served a sweet potato enchilada-like dish. Our last stop was an ice cream shop where we had salted caramel ice cream. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Mission District and highly recommend it to others!

    Kayleigh was an excellent guide. We did the morning tour starting with smoked pork tacos and the most amazing bloody Mary's. This was followed by Cheese and Beer pairing, a vegan entree and the best ice cream we've ever tasted. Our guide was informative, entertaining and completely changed our view of The Mission district. We had no idea of its culinary heritage and this tour really brought that to life. We definitely recommend this tour.
