From the Mission to the Haight to North Beach, each neighborhood in San Francisco is a culturally distinct experience. While every one of them deserves to be explored as a true native — on foot — it can be difficult to separate the well-worn tourist beats from the locals-only footpaths. On these all-inclusive small-group tours, knowledgeable guides will direct you to the beating heart of select neighborhoods, helping you to see, smell and taste the city like a local.

Top Tour - so much more than food
, Jun 2022
Excellent - thoroughly recommend it. Not just for foodies (though there’s plenty of that!), a great, passionate, interesting and informative guide that is a real SF history buff. A complete native - you won’t regret going on this one, fantastic value for money
Fantastic stories and foods!

Stuard himself is the living story of San Francisco. He got tons of greatstories to tell, people to meet and so manyrecommondations. If you want to walk with a man full of fun and legends, do check this tour!!
Stuart made the tour!!
, Jun 2022
Stuart was an amazing tour guide! He was very friendly and knowledgeable, I love that he was born and raised in SF and it showed. The food stops were very good plenty of food to be tasted, but the food was just a bonus to Stuart’s historical stories about SF.
Best walking tour in SF
, May 2022
This food tour was absolutely the best tour ever! Stuart’s passion for history and knowledge of SF made this tour so much fun! I am impressed by Stuart’s attention to detail; he had masks, hand sanitizer, and even cough drops on hand! The charcuterie board, the cookies (Italian and Chinese), the pizza, the dim sum, and so much more was just amazing! Thank you Stuart for celebrating my daughter’s 30th with us! This tour was so much fun. If you’re thinking of a walking tour of SF, this is the one.
I’m stuffed!!
