Itinerary
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 at least five other stops on this tour, including one of San Francisco’s most famous bakery, an Italian deli, a traditional clam chowder shop, and one of the few local ice cream shops in the city. 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.
