Great tour. We often do food tours when we travel. We find it a great way to check out places we may not find on our own. From the pizza to pastrami sandwiches to the cupcakes, this was a perfect way to explore Nirth Berkley.

First time in Berkeley. We were introduced to some excellent eating establishments. Also, Eve was a wealth of information about the restaurants themselves.

This was such a great experience. We are Bay Area locals and we went on the North Berkeley Tour. Rebecca was our fabulous guide. The food itself was above and beyond what we expected. Everything was arranged ahead of time and it was a smooth experience at each place. Delicious food, things I probably would not have tried or known about without our guide. I loved hearing about the history and people behind the food as well. We are planning on exploring the area many more times in the coming months. All around fantastic experience!! Highly recommend for locals or visitors.

I had a delightful tour with Rebecca. She had so much knowledge of the area and its culinary history. The food was delicious.

Vi er så glade for vi fik fundet frem til den Tour. Rebecca vores guide var super god, svarede på alle vores spørgmsål og vidste meget om de steder vi besøgte. Vi var meget mætte efter besøget og anbefaler gerne andre fra Danmark som skal på besøg om at tage en af jeres food tours!

Had a FANTASTIC time with our tour guide, Carrie, on the Berkeley Gourmet Ghetto Excursion. I went to school at Cal, but didn't explore this area much and learned a lot with Carrie! The tour is around a few blocks, but there's a lot to see and Carrie answered all our questions in addition to prepping all the stops so that they were ready to serve us food when we arrived. Definitely come hungry - I was stuffed by the end of the tour!
