Taste North Beach with Tastebud Tours

North Beach is San Francisco’s own Little Italy, and has historically been home to a large Italian-American population. This neighborhood used to be an actual beach but was filled in with a landfill in the late 19th century. Our walking tour brings you to our favorite classic Italian restaurants around the neighborhood. As we walk around sharing fun facts about the area, we take you to six different food tastings (enough for lunch!), which are included in the ticket price (restaurants are subject to change).
