I have been on a couple of tours with sidewalk food tours. One in NYC and this one in San Francisco mission district. Both were excellent and highly recommended. One of the most impressive parts about this tour was the amount of food. There was LOTS of food so come hungry! Our guide was pleasant and impressive.

Casey was an awesome guide. Our group had a great time, enjoying delicious food and learning about some of the history and culture of North Beach. I've lived in SF for 28 years and had a blast re-discovering the city.

We had a perfect sunny day for the North Beach Italian food tour and ANGELA was our guide who nicely explained what we would taste and the history/culture of the restaurant. It was very tasty and interesting and would highly recommend it for all "foodies".

Loved Sidewalk Food Tours of San Francisco and will definitely go on one again! My husband had a wonderful time on our tour. Hampton is an awesome tour guide! I can't wait to go back again. It is comparable in cost as well. So much fun!
