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


“The Gourmet Walking tour of NoPa area with Shane, was the highlight of my visit to San Francisco! She brought a delightful exchange of historic facts, about the neighborhood, the restaurants we visited, and about the types of dishes we tasted. The time flew by with an interesting mix of people, conversation, fun new food/drink combinations to try. This tour is perfect for locals, and those traveling in from out of town. It is priced well and our guide Shane pulled it all together into a fulfilling and festive day!”

“My first ever Food Walk – and it will not be my last if they are all like this. I learned more about food from our guide, Shane, in the first 30 minutes than I knew in the past 30 years! Seriously, you think you are a foodie because you go out 3-5 times a week, then along comes a tour and someone who knows her stuff AND she makes it fun!”
- Kat, June 2014
