The food tour on Mission with Dave was very pleasant, having lived in San Francisco a few years ago, we rediscovered the Mission district a little more. From the Burrito, taqueria, little Cuban shop, the oldest bakery in Mission and the best for the end the Chocolate shop, we really enjoyed the food and Dave made us discover the Murals, having knowledge about the Artists and the stories told on these walls, it was very interesting as well as his presentation of the Architecture of the houses of this district. A very good experience with Dave that I recommend without hesitation.

A great experience with a guide who was very knowledgable about the Cultural & culinary history of the Mission district. Our Guide Mark also works as a chef so that added layer of knowledge was great to experience.

Mark was a great guide. He was a knowledgeable and explained things very well. My son and I learned a lot the history and enjoyed the food tour.
(note: we gave a tip to Mark already, and thus I'm not going to add below. Thank you)

The best part of my trip to San Francisco was without a doubt this. Logan delivered an extremely succinct and impassioned history of the Mission neighborhood, including information on the cuisine, artwork, and architecture. The entire tour was interesting, well-paced, and included a number of snack stops. I particularly enjoyed the street art trip because I never would have located those obscure alleyways. Did I mention how fantastic the meal was? I've traveled to several European nations, and they served me the greatest hot chocolate I've ever eaten. I seriously recommend taking this trip!

David was fantastic. He provided extensive explanations of each dish we were eating, as well as its background. We explored The Mission District's history and Mexican cuisine. He took us to see the most beautiful buildings and murals. I heartily endorse this tour.

The Mission food tour was fantastic! Mark was a fantastic tour guide who has the qualifications to back up his obvious knowledge and love of both his city and food. Began with a fantastic burrito, relished pan dulce, savored some delectable oysters, and finished with a hot chocolate! We had options at each stop, allowing everyone to order what they wanted, which I found to be nice. We really enjoyed the murals in the Mission district of San Francisco as well.

Recently, my family and I participated in a ... San Francisco walking food tour. We skipped breakfast in favor of some delicious treats, and we were not let down! We appreciated the extra benefit of the murals and the Mission's history along the route, and we were delighted by all the variety of snacks that were provided during the trip. We felt like we truly got the inside scoop because our guide was so informed about the area. The trip was conducted at a moderate and laid-back pace, and there was plenty of time for conversation and wine-sipping to get to meet some of the other people on our tour.

Mark took us on an incredible cuisine tour. Not only about cuisine, but also about the Mission, he was really knowledgable. It is obvious that he is passionate about the location and food. I've never had a burrito as good as the one we had at each restaurant, the oysters were a pleasant surprise, and the hot chocolate at the end was amazing. Every meal we had was excellent. The places Mark took us to were wonderful, and he introduced us to sights that tourists would not have known about or experienced. Mark did not let us down because we enjoy venturing off the beaten road and discovering new places.
