What surprises in hidden corners of Jack London Square! I loved the artisan products that were pulled out to further scintillate our culinary leanings!

History is my thing...would love a bit more of that!

A fascinating tour in place and time. Guide was full of food samples from several of the places. Blue Bottle coffee is so perfect that we weren't able to go inside as a group; he had a thermos, 1 hour old, to share with us.

Geneva, our guide was knowledgeable, and unobtrusive. We were definitely satiated and informed by the end of our 4 hour stroll. The food was amazing and my group of four all want to take their Oakland Chinatown tour. And also return to explore...continued

I had never heard of waffles and fried chicken before but found this a different breakfast treat. I would recommend this tour to get to know the different restaurants' in the area.

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!

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

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 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
