Description

Dive into the rich culinary scene of the City by the Bay with an exploration of Chinatown and North Beach’s iconic shops and locals-only eateries. With a food-loving guide leading the way, follow the flavors of San Francisco through the heart of these 2 lively and historic communities.

Your adventure kicks off in the heart of Chinatown, where you can admire the neighborhood's distinctive architecture before stepping into the fragrant storefront—one of the city’s oldest dim sum bakeries. Meet the cooks behind the cuisine and check out their technique for hand-making fortune cookies. Grab your chopsticks and whet your appetite on savory dumplings, cha siu bao, and a freshly brewed pot of Chinese tea while you learn about Chinese mysticism and family life.

Make your way over to North Beach, San Francisco’s historic Little Italy, and listen as your guide describes the diverse cultural and historic influences that have made their mark on the city’s culinary scene. Admire artisan Italian pottery and discuss some of the traditional Old World arts and crafts that thrive here as the scent of freshly roasted coffee and baking bread wafts through the air. Step into an authentic Italian pizzeria to sample fine wine and enjoy bites of warm-from-the-oven pizza before your tour concludes.

It was more history than food tour. We seemed to go back and forth and over streets and places rather than straight to the point. Food was ok but tour went for too long and the guide rambled which meant people lost interest quickly.

Our guide Brian was very knowledgeable about the food and history of the area. He was born and raised in San Francisco which I believe is a big plus. Was also very satisfied with the food that we ate.

The tour was a great experience and a wonderful way to see local businesses and taste local food. It lasted a little too long, however. The restaurants were very busy that night so the tour guide seemed to stall so we would arrive later while they were not so busy.
