Raquel offers a really refreshing tour, good atmosphere and I really appreciate the old Oakland area. I encourage you to take this tour early in your trip as you will have a better idea of what kinds of foods to look for while you're there. Every single stop on the tour was a true delight, so be sure to arrive with an empty stomach! Great itinerary.
