Hungry for an off-the-beaten path San Francisco gourmet food experience? Join us as we explore one of the city’s trendy and exciting new neighborhoods, Hayes Valley. We will share what’s hot in the San Francisco food scene as we visit specialty shops and restaurants that are proud of their commitment to the very best local and sustainable ingredients. As you compare gourmet cheeses, participate in a tea tasting and indulge your sweet tooth, you’ll gain an appreciation for a distinct neighborhood that most tourists never see.
We’ll stroll past elegant Victorians, food trucks, street art and an urban farm as you learn about the history of Hayes Valley. You’ll taste and chat with other food-loving guests, and leave the tour with a host of restaurant recommendations for your next trip to Hayes Valley.
