Gourmet Ghetto was a fun food tour. I have been on a few others and this particular tour had a great food selection; however the tour guide was disconnected from the group and very hard to hear.....almost seemed bored with her job. It was great...continued

I love the Gourmet Ghetto. Our guide was wonderful and the food there is amazing. The last one I attended was the Mission tour and it was not even as good. One reason is because some of the owners didn't get out and talk about the business and...continued

It was great to be able to visit popular restaurants and walk right in and sit at a reserved table for the group. I got a chance to try food at places I was curious about, and discover several places I didn't know were in the neighborhood. I'll...continued

Lael was our wonderful tour guide & we liked the event very much. I think perhaps it would work out better to have the coffee & tea after the food, then when the tour starts @ 10AM. After going on this one, I will go to the others too!

Really enjoyed the tour. Went to a variety of places. Amazing how many great places in such a concentrated area. Went to places we never would have tried. Eve was a great guide.

Since I am not familiar with Berkeley at all, it was over all very good. The food we tasted were all excellent. I would have like to sample more food selections. I think towards the end of the tour the portion should have been bigger or more...continued

So parking is difficult in this area. feed meter every two hours.
The food tour itself is average, to slightly above average. IF you are paying $35 per person, it's a decent value. The full price ticket is NOT worth it in my opinion.
The tour...continued

We had a great time on the tour. The tour was very educational. Never knew so much politics and logistical difficulties were involved in food. Great experience. We would do this again in a heartbeat.

We loved the tour. I've lived in S.F. & Peninsula all my life but had never been to the Gourmet Ghetto. We will definitely be coming back - breakfast at Saul's, pizza for lunch, then maybe tea or coffee after. Serena was our guide and she was...continued

Go early, park in suggested free parking area north of tour meeting place. Wear comfy walking shoes, plenty of delicious food samples to eat, you won't go away hungry!
