San Francisco: Tourism through Food

Sightseeing is more fun when the "sights" are edible.

Such is the premise behind the award-winning Local Tastes of the City Tours . Through a series of walking tours that revolve around food, visitors uncover the soul of San Francisco's most famous culinary neighborhoods: North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown and Haight-Ashbury. Tours tromp into local bakeries, restaurants and cafes, sampling the food and meeting the people who make it. Bring an appetite. And comfy pants.
