North Beach and Chinatown Food Tour

Explore San Francisco

What You'll Get

Explore two of San Francisco's dynamic neighborhoods with this cross-cultural adventure. Meet your guide at Chinatown Gate and set off on foot in search of culinary delights. Chinatown and the historically Italian North Beach share a border, so they make for a convenient foodie destination where you'll cover plenty of ground in just 3 hours.

In Chinatown, you'll discover a Buddhist temple and other sights while you stroll down alleys, learn about local customs, and taste delicious dim sum of dumplings and other traditional recipes. Along the way, visit Portsmouth Square where groups of locals practice the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi, and stop by a fortune cookie factory to see how the popular confections are made.

Then continue on to North Beach's bakeries, trattorias, pizzerias, and coffee shops, which offer a different spectrum of scents and tastes. See Washington Square Park and take in views of the city. You'll taste everything from freshly made pasta paired with wine to cannoli and espresso for dessert.

Choose from two tours that showcase different sides of these neighboring San Francisco districts. The afternoon tour ventures out during peak business hours, while the evening tour reflects a more relaxed atmosphere as restaurants and cafés are just waking up.
