    Cory was a great guide- obvious love of the neighborhood and a passion for the food of the Mission District. Very good local commentary on the various sites and history. Highly recommend the tour and if you can request a guide, select Cory!

    The group size and walking pace were very good. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Scott shared a lot the history of San Francisco's China Town and the city itself. The food was plentiful and very good Cantonese . The food was catered to folks who don't like more spicy Chinese cuisine, like Szechuan. I must say that the vegetable dumplings that I've ever head. The visits at the specialty chocolate shop and tea shop were highlights for me.

    Michael M was an outstanding tour guide. We learned so much about Chinatown and its history. The food was delicious. I only wish that we could live closer because I could eat this food every week.
    I highly recommend this food tour. You won't be disappointed.

    First dinner cruise. Loved it.

    Seemed lol the ship was only 40% full on a Sunday night in early September. First deck wasn’t even used.

    Music was nice and soft first half. After dinner turned into a dance party.

    Lots of restrooms, gorgeous views, great food.

    The music was a bit loud the second half. If you wanted to dance that was great. If you wanted to talk you would be better off with a different cruise.

    Evan was our guide. He was professional and added just enough history to make more than a food tour. Only thing my husband and I would suggest (everytjing served was very good by the way) is to add a second option instead of just serving one item. We would never have ordered the items served and enjoyed each spot!

    What a fun evening! We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and since she loves ghost tours and Italian food, this was a perfect fit. The stops were a great mix of entertaining storytelling and yummy food. Robert is a phenomenal guide who was so thoughtful and knowledgeable. We even enjoyed a special birthday treat for my friend and another guest—complete with candles! Really couldn’t ask for more.

    If you are a Bay area resident or someone coming in for a visit to San Francisco, the Mission 18th Street San Francisco Food Tour by Edible Excursions is not to be missed! We were so fortunate to have Lisa, the owner as our guide. She was a wealth of knowledge and clearly had relationships with the restaurant owners and staff. It is a three-hour walking tour, but it is all flat and not a lot of distance is covered. We started at Arepas, a Venezuelan restaurant. The food was excellent, and the Sangria divine. If you are looking for some Venezuelan food products, they also have a small store with edibles generally not found in the US. We moved onto Abanico for coffee and had a wonderful chat with the owner. Next, we ate at Cafe de Olla, a Oaxacan restaurant. It is small and bustling and the food authentic. Most of our group was up for trying Chapulines, or edible grasshoppers with their fresh tortilla chips. They were spicy and, no, they did not taste like chicken, haha. If you are craving the food of Oaxaca, you definitely need to try this small, charming place. The last "main" stop was at Tacolicious. We were treated to the Tuna Tostada Contramar-Style. Having eaten at Contramar in Mexico City, I was really excited to try this. The tuna melted in my mouth, so delicious. Lastly, we rounded out the tour with dessert at Dandelion Chocolate where we learned the process by which chocolate is made and finished the three hours with a visit to Bi-Rite Ice Cream. The salted caramel ice cream was so creamy and true to the flavors. This tour was an amazing view into the revitalization of the Mission. Along the way we passed the vibrant murals and learned about this forgotten area. Having taken the wonderful Edible Excursions tour at Ferry Plaza, I would say you can't go wrong with any of their tours, but this one felt really special getting out into the neighborhood may people avoid. Don't miss it.

    We're SF locals, but we joined this tour with some friends who were visiting from out of town. It was such a great way to learn about some of the hidden gems of Chinatown and to reacquaint ourselves with this fantastic part of our city. Robert did an excellent job of balancing the history with the food experiences and he was always up for answering our questions. We enjoyed every one of the food and beverage stops on this tour from the dim sum and peking duck to boba tea and especially the tea tasting. Robert even gave us some tips for where to purchase some of our favorite Chinese baked goods after the tour. Another highlight was visiting the temple and hearing about its history from the charming woman who is its caretaker. We plan to recommend this tour to any of our friends or family members who come to visit San Francisco!

    This wine tasting tour was quite the experience. We were picked up at our hotel by David and he was even a touch early. On the way out to the wine region he did make a couple of stops to allow us to take pictures of scenic areas in San Francisco. Our first winery was the Hook & Ladder and it was ‘average’. Then we stopped at the Kendall Jackson estate and it was phenomenal. The wines were exceptional and the 5 course meal we were served was truly gastronomical. My wife and I have not stopped talking about this excursion. I would not hesitate to do it again and I highly highly recommend this to anyone who wishes to spend a pleasant afternoon at the wineries!

    My soup came out luke warm and portion sizes of the meals was a bit distorted and the included sides, I wouldn't call them sides.. I only got slices of a carrot, one piece of broccoli and a roasted pepper I had no idea what to do with but overall, definitely worth the experience! Loved the respectful Hostess and waiters!

    Great food at locations I would normally have walked past without giving a second look. Nikki was a fantastic tour guide and very knowledgeable with interesting facts and stories.

    I will be back for more tours with Nikki at Avital!

    Our guide, Viv, was fun and well informed.

    The selected restaurants had wonderful food and wine.

    We were introduced to the best clam chowder we’ve ever had.

    We began with a Chandon bubbly and a cheese plate, moved to the restaurant with chowder accompanied by a lovely rose, and to Poggio for delicious gnudi with a great Scarpatta Barbera and ended with a bread pudding like no other with white port on an outdoor deck. Everywhere the views were great and the guide a good conversationalist.
