Fun, but not worth the money for a foodie

When I saw the video and read the possible food offerings, I had a much higher expectation for the food aspect of the tour. I looked forward to it for months, and even rented a wheel chair for my mother-in-law so that she could come with me based on my recommendations of the food I expected. The food highlight was Tyler's pork belly tacos which were sublime. In addition, the waitress there was kind enough to offer us virgin Bloody Mary's that were outstanding. The other locations were moderate in our opinion. Our tour guide, Ida, was wonderful, but we didn't learn much more from the people who spoke with us at each location than what she already told us. The tour of the history of the Mission District was very interesting, but I would not have spent $84 per person, since I chose this tour for the outstanding food offerings.

Poor value for what was provided.

Spent over $50 for a small amount of food. $18 for a puny cocktail and a 4oz glass of beer. Felt ripped off.
