Full description

Be whisked away to a time when the Barbary Coast was the wildest neighborhood in America during the Gold Rush. You'll stroll through charming streets, visit hidden tunnels where booze was once smuggled during Prohibition, and immerse yourself in the rich Italian culture that still thrives here.

Now, let's talk food! The 4-course progressive meal is carefully curated to tantalize your taste buds. You'll visit 3 handpicked restaurants, starting with two delectable appetizers, followed by a mouthwatering entree, and ending on a sweet note with a dessert. But this tour is about more than just eating; it's about experiencing the neighborhood's culinary history and the stories behind each dish.

What can you expect on the menu? How about savoring famous tomato-based seafood stew, cioppino, invented right here in San Francisco? Or sinking your teeth into plump and juicy pork buns at a relaxed dim sum lounge? We'll even treat you to authentic wood-fired pizza from the oldest pizza oven on the West Coast, voted No. 3 Best Pizza in the US according to People Magazine.

And dessert? It's a sweet symphony with hand-filled authentic cannoli, classic Italian tiramisu, and a trio of gelato tastes featuring local partnerships that will tickle your taste buds.

Such an amazing experience, filled with history and insight. Our guide was absolutely fabulous, overflowing with energy and knowledge, making it an even more fabulous event. This tour is perfect for a group of about a dozen people or so.

I went on the North Beach Tour, my very first food tour, and it was an absolute delight! Our guide was absolutely incredible. The food and wine pairings were fantastic, and the stories we learned about each restaurant's history were a bonus. I now have a wealth of SF's culinary history to share with my friends and family. Our guide even kindly shared other points of interest to explore beyond the tour. It was such a fun and delicious experience!
