FAQ

Where can I purchase tickets?

Edible Excursions tickets can be purchased straight from our website. Tickets must be purchased in advance, as we have limited space for our tours and want to make sure we can accommodate everyone. If you've purchased your ticket from a third party website, you will still need to confirm your reservation with us within 48 hours in advance. Please contact info@edibleexcursions.net with any questions!

What do I need to bring?

Yourself, and your appetite! Comfortable walking shoes are always a good idea, as is a bottle of water. You may also want to bring a bag for any additional goodies you pick up along the way.

Are there any additional fees during the tour?

We've taken care of all the tour costs for you, no need to worry! If your guide showed you a good time, tips are always appreciated.

Where do I go? Do I need to drive?

Once you've booked your tour, we’ll send you a confirmation with all the details on where to meet, parking or public transit suggestions, and anything else you need to know.

Are tickets refundable if I need to cancel?

All tickets are nonrefundable and cannot be exchanged or rescheduled. However, tickets can be transferred to another guest. If you are transferring the ticket, please let us know if there are dietary restrictions for this guest and we will attempt to accommodate.

How long are tours?

Each tour length is different, but they vary from 2-3 hours. We run a prompt schedule, so please be sure to be on time! You won’t want to miss any of the delicious stops.

I have some dietary restrictions, but want to take a tour! Should I still come?

Definitely! We always do our best to meet dietary needs. Please just let us know well in advance so we can plan accordingly.

How much food is included?

Most of our guests have said that our tours include enough food for a meal supplement, if not two meals. So we wouldn’t suggest any big dinner plans after (our cocktail tour is the one exception).

What if it rains?

Edible Excursions tours are held rain or shine! Luckily, the Bay Area has great weather, so it’s not usually an issue. If it is a rainy day, be sure to bring an umbrella. We’ll do our best to keep you dry and happy.

Are cameras allowed?

Yes, please bring your cameras, phones, etc.! We want you to capture the memorable moments of the tour. Just be sure you don’t miss out on the stories from our guides and partners—they have some great insight to share. You can share your photos on our Facebook page, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #EdibleExcursions.

Do you offer private tours?

Yes, we love hosting private groups! Whether it’s a birthday party, bachelorette outing, or corporate team building activity, we are happy to create custom tours for your group. Email us at info@edibleexcursions.net for details.

Should I tip the guide?

Our guides are passionate about food and service. Tips are very much appreciated if you feel your guide showed you a good time on the tour.

“Edible Excursions tours visit the restaurants and stores that give the Bay Area its foodie reputation, but what makes the tours stand out is founder Lisa Rogovin’s inside connections.”
