According to Sidewalk Food Tours, 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.
The guide Brian was fun and entertaining. We honestly enjoyed it more than we thought we would. We are local to the Bay Area, so thought it would but something only visitors would enjoy. But, we were pleasantly surprised.

My group went on the Mission District food tour and it was delicious. We went to 5 unique locations and were also given a history lesson as we walked through the city. Our guide Lauryn was excited and happy to be there, you can tell she loves her job.
