Covid-19 Reopening Timeline

As a result of San Francisco Country restrictions on the reopening of bars/lounges, this tour will not be available until mid-August 2020 at the earliest.  Please check back for updates on the reopening schedule.

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


“We were 12 friends living in the Bay Area wanted to have a special experience. Casey is amazing. Full of energy, fun, informative, positive, helpful, patient and .... She managed our big group perfectly. We had really amazing food, learned about the local bakers, chefs, grocers and ... and during our walk learned really interesting facts about San Francisco. Highly recommend this tour. And please come on an empty stomach. We couldn’t even finish the last dessert though it was heavenly! I would suggest adding a chocolate tasting to this tour. By the way, Ahmet, the owner of the company is very helpful and efficient. Thank you for a memorable afternoon.”

“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.”
