We have spread the word. Excellent guide and the shops/restaurants visited were so pleasing to our palates. We plan on doing another walk.

Review from Michael Weinberger

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.
