What to Expect
Make your way to the Mission Cultural Center where you meet your guide and group of 12 people or fewer. Quickly hit the pavement for your walking Mission District Food Tour. The Mission is a lively neighborhood—one of San Francisco’s oldest—with Latino roots, and a great place to sample food in San Francisco. Start with a San Francisco classic: the crammed and masterfully rolled Mission burrito. Make several other stops on this tour, that may include one of San Francisco’s most famous bakeries, an Italian deli, a traditional clam chowder shop, and a local ice cream shop. The last destination is a “mystery” spot chosen by your guide. Skip the lines wherever you stop for food and listen to your guide tell stories about the neighborhood’s cultural and architectural heritage. Your tour finishes in the early afternoon.

Our guide Mark was fantastic - super knowledgeable about San Francisco history in general and about Mission street art and the food scene in particular. The pacing of the tour was also great - we covered a lot of ground in the Mission, but also got to eat lots of great food at

The Mission is the historical heart of SF and still the Latin hub of the city. Julie was charming and entertaining as she balanced food, street art, history and architecture. My favorite stop was the Seafood bar where we chose from Oysters or clam chowder. Altogether it made for

This tour was great! Julie took our small group to several lovely locations and gave us some great background on the area and the mural art. Every place we stopped was friendly and delicious and it was a fantastic way to get to know the Mission area better.
