Local Taste of the City Tours San Francisco

Local Taste of the City Tours in San Francisco is the biggest ripoff and the worst tour ever. Please be advised to stay away from this scam. Tom the owner of this tour group is the biggest *** who provided by far the worse tour in the city of San Francisco, California. We started our horrible tour at 10 AM and it cost us $59.00 (the biggest waste of money ever). I could go on and on about how they took us to different restaurants which they got kickbacks from and failed to show us anything of merit but that would do you no justice. Simply put just stay away from this tour. there are so many better ways to see chinatown, alcatraz, the pier, and all of the other great things that SF has to offer but in no way shape or form is that to be done with the Local Taste of the City Tours as you WILL BE RIPPED OFF.

We apologize for the experience the person had on our tour.

1) We go to local bakeries, coffee shops, cholatiers, pizza makers, pastry shops, and delis and food artisans.

2) We see the brick ovens, where the bread is made, coffee roasters, and back kitchens of most of our food stops. It is not a restaurant tour. It is a tour of local food artisans. We enjoy a variety of food at each of our stops.

3) As we are part of the neighborhood, we have never gotten a kickback from anyone, nor would we accept one. One of our goals is to help local food artisans. These are also friends people we care about. We pay each of our food stops for the full cost of the food for our guests.

4) As we do not have a record of a guest from around that time from Baltimore, we cannot contact the writer and rectify the situation.

5) Many of the areas mentioned in the posting, such as Alcatraz and the pier are areas we do not go to and never have gone to. I cannot address this misinformation. For some reason, other than the information from our website (starting time, adult cost, and owner's first name), the writer seems to recall little from the tour.

We ask each of our guests what they think of the tour, after the tour is over to make sure they enjoyed the tour. If for any reason, they are not satisfied, we do not charge for the tour.

We are AAA Approved. We were voted Best Tour for 2011 by readers of the SF Bay Guardian and Best Tour 2006 and 2007 by CitySearch.
