We had a wonderful time and tasted something delicious at every stop! Because I was raised with good manners, and because everything was delicious, we went back and patronized all of the nice places we visited. Great tour - everyone would love it!

The tour guide gave us a quick introduction to herself and established credibility by explaining she was a chef in the Gourmet Ghetto herself which I really liked.

Our first stop was Sauls Deli, where we enjoyed a Pastrami sandwich on Acme Rye...continued

All the food was excellent. Eve, the Epicurean Concierge, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and generous. I highly recommend the tour. I brought my 73 year old mother, and she didn't find the walk difficult or tiring at all. Surprisingly,...continued

The variety of food was excellent, and well presented with brief histories of the restaurant and the chefs. The pace was just right, and the food so good that I would revisit to sample more in all of the establishments we visited.

What a great experience! Loved hearing the stories about the area and then the specifics about each eatery. The variety of 'foods' was fun, but the best was delving into the specifics of what, and then why we eat what we eat. Carrie, our guide,...continued

Rain or shine, it makes for a wonderful morning/afternoon event.
Meet new people with the same interests and you exchange restaurant pros and cons. Hidden food treasures all within 3-4 blocks!

This was definitely worth the time! Eve was a great guide and took us to places in Berkeley that I would not have known about otherwise. An afternoon well spent with the right balance of types of places and information from local businesses.
