Took the tour on Monday, October 18. Loved it - food was scrumptious and the guide, Brian, was enthusiastic, warm and knowledgeable. Will definitely head back to "Little Italy" next time I'm in San Francisco!

Plenty of really good food!

Brian was a great guide as he grew up in San Francisco and was known by the people at all of our stops.
We’re hoping to tour China Town and have him as our guide.

A good way to spend your afternoon
Jul 2021
Brian was a very accommodating guide. He was a lot of fun and took us to a few non food places which made it really feel personal. He even got one of the owners to come out and talk to us. Would definitely take this tour again.
