Select Local Merchants

"If you want to aggressively snack your way through a neighborhood as you walk it," says Fodor's, "consider hanging with cookbook author Tom Medin or one of his local guides." Medin is one of the founders of Local Tastes of the City Tour/SF Food Tours, and he personally leads many of the company's walking tours, which seek out the soul of the city in its bakeries, restaurants, and cafes. The hunt for hidden gems might lead to Chinatown's oldest bakery and a fortune cookie-making demonstration, or through an authentic Western saloon. The North Beach tour, which has been recommended by Lonely Planet, presents a behind-the-scenes look at coffee-roasting by way of the favored hangouts of the Beat Generation. Even when a tour skirts the city's iconic landmarks via painted bus, each stop is replete with tastings and demos, which is why the guides recommend that visitors avoid eating before a tour or swallowing their backpacks for safekeeping.

Even before you climb inside, the GoCar is clearly a car with a personality. The petite, three-wheeled two-seater has a hood that slightly resembles an eager-to-please smiley face, and an open top that seems custom-made for letting the breeze ruffle your hair. Then the real fun begins: built with the company's own software and a compassion for the voiceless robots of America, a talking GPS system guides two-seater GoCars through the city streets of San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Barcelona, Madrid, and Lisbon with cheerful, info-rich narration. Second only to having a knowledgeable local jog alongside your minivan, tours zip along at drivers' own pace and accommodate as many pit stops as time allows.

As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?

Each VIP Host is trained to deal with any issues that may occur on the tour from drunk guests to venues being over crowded when we arrive. They take the initiative to solve these issues on the spot to make the tour most enjoyable.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

If the guests are celebrating an event being a birthday, bachelor/bachelorette party, corporate function, convention etc, our hosts inform the club to give them special shoutouts from the DJ. We also cater to those guests to ensure they and their group are extremely happy.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?

Yes of course. Myself as well as all employees go on "dry runs" to ensure we enjoy the tours so our guests will too. The discounted drinks throughout the night saves over $200 a night.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We have unlimited tickets available each night so the more the merrier.

According to Sidewalk Food Tours of San Francisco, it's not the Golden Gate Bridge that ties the city together. It's the gooey cheese of its family pizzerias, the chocolate truffles of its dessert shops, and all of the region's other cuisines that help define the various neighborhoods—and their walking tours aim to introduce participants to those local flavors. In the Mission District, for instance, Sidewalk Food Tours' knowledgeable guides lead groups through tastings of tacos, falafel, and French-style bakery treats. In North Beach, they show how a large Italian American population resulted in restaurants that have endured more than 100 years. Along each route, the guides also impart facts about the neighborhood's history and culture, and reveal which buildings are built on a foundation of provolone cheese.

If you follow Excelsior Urban Hikes' resident guide Christina, it will only take you two hours to see all of San Francisco. That's because it takes two hours to hike to the top of Mount Davidson, which offers stunning views of the city, both bay bridges, and the Pacific Ocean beyond to visitors who reach its summit.

Christina leads hikes down city streets and through nature trails to reveal scenic vistas. Besides Mount Davidson, she often takes groups to McLaren Park, where she points out interesting graffiti and pauses so hikers can take in views of the Outer Mission District. Christina also takes nighttime excursions to the top of Bernal Hill, where hikers can marvel at the sparkling bay lights and a lightening bug with a great stand-up routine.
