Happy to see Jack London Sq with wonderful new restaurants and proud of the true community spirit of vendors using local purveyors. A lovely experience overall, despite the rain, however, disappointed that some vendors were not open.

Significant servings of an array of tastes and styles. Be prepared to eat hearty and to learn tidbits about Oakland history and about food. A delightful three and a half hours.

I found a great new bagel place and an interesting urban winery on this tour. The guide was knowledgeable and organized and made sure everyone had an enjoyable time. I enjoyed hearing the history of each place we visited.
