The tour was fantastic as was our wonderful tour guide. The food places chosen were fun, of great quality, and items that I wouldn't have tried alone. I am very picky and even though I passed on a couple dishes (which I knew I would and my fiance...continued

Carlo is such a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. The food tastings were excellent, and they were good-sized portions. We brought our own water, but water is available at every stop anyway. We learned lots about the gem that is Oakland!

Fantastic blend of a food and historical tour, great value for the price. Loved discovering things in Jack London Sqaure that I would have never found on my own.

Fun tour with 10 people; just enough. We ate a lot, laughed a lot, and learned the history of the area. Now we have a list of great discoveries to return to. I would highly recommend this to folks new in town or long-time residents like ourselves...continued

nice to get a very positive feeling for the new oakland, learn some history, and get some good eats. The others on the tour were all fun, and our guide was great.

The tour could not have been better! Great choices of restaurants and food, perfect pace, excellent commentary on the Jack London Square area. Much more than just a food tour! Geneva is the best!

This was a wonderful tour which explored the food, wine and history of the neighborhood. I learned a lot and enjoyed all of the different types of food -- so much so that I couldn't pick a favorite. Our guide, Geneva, was great and I am...continued

I got this for my mom and dad as a gift. My dad raved about it, saying it was very well organized. The tour guide calls ahead and when the tour arrives, everybody is seated and served immediately. My parents don't spend a lot of time in Oakland,...continued

In addition to tasting a lot of great food (and wine), I learned a lot about Oakland history. I liked that the group was limited to ten people; a very interesting, diverse group. It was great fun! I plan to go again and take friends or out of...continued

This is a great tour at a great price (even at regular price, it is cheaper than most Bay area food walks). A nice and interesting neighborhood to explore. Our tour guide, Carlo, was very friendly and informative. The food portions (even as a...continued

Had a great time. Geneva is an outstanding guide, personable, and dialed-in to the Jack London Square scene. I have been driving by these locations for years, and now appreciate what I have been missing by not getting out of my car. Highly...continued
