Description

Not your typical food tour, this sojourn into North Beach or the Mission District features insights by a local chef as your guide. Together you'll scout out the food scene in your choice of neighborhood and shop for culinary treasures along the way. Tour does not have include food, you purchase what you like. Be sure to bring cash and a shopping bag for your purchases during a walking tour of nearly 3 hours.
