Very educational as well as delicious food. The guide was a local and very knowledgeable about the area even after the tour when we asked for recommendations. The owner was very quick to reply to our inquiry and set up a private tour with only a few days notice. Overall, great experience!

The best Food Tour we have ever been on, and we have been on many tours in many places! Isabella was knowledgeable, accommodating, and a delight. She shared personal anecdotes about the places we saw, and definitely knows where to get the best food.

We visit San Francisco once a year and usually go on a walking tour of some kind. The Chinatown Culinary tour was the best one we have been on. Scott, our guide, was the best tour guide we have ever experienced and that is a sincere assessment. At one point I complimented Scott (he has a long resume as a broadcast and media spokesperson) on his enunciation and diction. It was easy to hear him above the street noise and speaking to a group of ten. He was never verbose, or rambling. Finally, our original plan was to take the tour and get a recommendation for lunch in Chinatown, but we were so stuffed from all of the treats provided that we skipped lunch.

Our tour guide, Brian, was amazing. He is super funny and truly knows the communities that we toured and made us feel immersed in our surroundings. The tour was about more than just the food as we learned about the intricate history and cultures of the area and got to see places that we would not have otherwise. We had a great time with our group and guide, the scenery was beautiful, and of course the food was delicious. The stops are high quality and we certainly weren’t left hungry, we even had leftovers! If you are going to do anything in SF I would recommend this and if you can, ask for Brian. We had a relatively short stay in the bay area but after this i’m hoping we will get to come back and revisit these places very soon!

This a very enjoyable combination of history of Chinatown and delicious food, with a great tea sampling session. The guide was entertaining and knowledgeable, with fun companions on the 3+ hour adventure walk.

Brian is a fantastic ambassador to North Beach. He was greeted by many local merchants and residents as we strolled around the streets. He’s a great story teller and is passionate steward of the many long-standing establishments. Not only did we sample some truly lovely offerings, we also stopped in to some fine and unique stores. If you are on a Keto diet or are carb adverse, then this tour is NOT for you. We loved it!
