“Ferry Fun”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Wow! What a great tour we had with Joshua as our guide through the Ferry building. For two hours, he filled our tummies with wonderful new tastes, while filling our brains with SF history. We didn't feel too guilty about eating constantly since we were walking off the calories, too! Started off with delicious pear pastries, sampled gluten-free bread, gourmet honey, succulent chocolate, fresh French bread with buttery cheeses, fresh salame, and incredible macaroons. Always heard of their famous Farmers Market and got to wander through it, too. A definite must-do on any foodie's bucket list. And, kudos to the culinary chef tour guide, Joshua Clever, who makes food come alive!

“Berkeley Gourmet Ghetto...Amazing!!”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

What a great neighborhood!! Without even starting the tour, we could already tell that this area is special. The people that live here support their local restaurants and gourmet markets. Our tour was one of the best (I have been on 6 other food tours throughout the US and I would rate this one as good as my favorite one - Greenwich Village in NYC!!) The food variety is great. From the celery soda (which is surprisingly tasty) and pastrami sandwich at Sauls Deli to the best tasting pizza at The Cheeseboard we had an excellent sample of the different types of food offered in this 4 block radius of merchants. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour.

“Japantown Tour - Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

My wife & I, along with four other friends took the Japantown Tour last weekend. We were joined by six others and we were all led by our tour guide, Alice. The educational aspects of the tour were most interesting and the various tastings were diverse as well as being delicious. Alice, who lives close by, was extremely knowledgeable, congenial and fun to be with. Our group all rated this tour 5-star plus.

“Great way to spend the day!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 via mobile

Just did the mission area food tour with Sophia. The food selections were excellent and our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We'll be doing another tour with edible excursions the next time we're in the area
