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


“Casey was delightful and chose some wonderful options for food and drink including grocery and dessert options. We live near this neighborhood and had no idea of the variety just 2 miles from us. Highly recommended!”
- David, January 2018

“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.”

“My wife and I loved the NoPa tour... we hadn't spent any time at all in this area of SF, so we figured it would be nice to get a feel for the local cuisine. We didn't realize we would learn so much more about the earlier days of the area back in the 19th Century; we learned about some of the various home architecture styles and how to spot the features that characterized different periods. Quite fascinating! We also enjoyed the food. Absolutely come to the tour hungry as there is plenty of food to fill you up. We enjoyed our time so much, we hope others will take the tour and share in the amazingness!!”
