NoPa/Alamo Square

The City’s Most Up-And-Coming Neighborhood

NoPa/Alamo Square is San Francisco’s up-and-coming neighborhood, boasting exciting new grocery stores and bakeries alongside panoramic views of downtown. NoPa stands for North of Panhandle, and we will stroll past the Panhandle Park as well as Alamo Square for a picture postcard shot of the Painted Ladies.

You’ll learn about the history of Divisadero Street while peeking into art galleries, hip boutiques and wine bars that make NoPa a new destination. Easily accessible by bus and MUNI, this neighborhood is a perfect stopover en route to Golden Gate Park, the DeYoung Museum and Cal Academy of Science.

Why Gourmet Walks?

Our Difference


“NOPA - what’s that, I asked. North of the Panhandle. I’m born and lived in SF all my 68 years and am amazed how this neighborhood has evolved. It’s a wonderful place for a food tour. Casey was our leader, who’s been living in SF since 2002, and knows the area better than me. She’s marvelous. I highly recommend.”

“This was our second tour with Gourmet Walks and Casey again was our guide. She is very accommodating and made sure to interact with everyone in our group and get to know them. I thought the line-up of restaurants was quite diverse and unique. Some of these local restaurants you are not likely to discover on your own. Therefore, the tour was valuable to us even from a local's perspective. I liked the tour finale at a wine bar, where we could have a leisurely conversation and taste some wines.”
