This was a fantastic experience. Our guide, Eve, was phenomenal. A "must" excursion for all interested in experiencing warm hospitality, great nibbles and interesting local history.

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.

I found this tour lots of fun and very informative. There was so much information, I could go on it again, and still not retain it all. Bring a pen/notebook. Eat a small breakfast, so you can really enjoy the food choices. The portions were...continued

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.

Great overview of the businesses and their mission. I live in Berkeley and still found it very interesting. I took five friends and they enjoyed it a lot.
