what we do

Edible Excursions is an award-winning food tour company offering intimate culinary strolls through San Francisco’s famous Ferry Building Marketplace, culturally diverse Mission District, historic Japantown, and downtown's craft cocktail bar scene.  We can also ship you off to Alcatraz after a Ferry Building food tour. Not to worry, a round-trip ticket is included.

Regular East Bay food tours of North Berkeley’s iconic Gourmet Ghetto, dubbed the birthplace of California Cuisine, Oakland's hippest culinary gem Temescal, and Uptown Oakland's theatre and arts-oriented neighborhood are also available. Additionally, Edible Excursions provides custom food tours for private parties and corporate groups organizing team building activities. 

Edible Excursions’ explorations take place in neighborhoods where small business owners, artisans, purveyors, farmers, and restaurant chefs share their personal food stories and their passion for local, seasonal, sustainable eats. And, of course, along with learning about each area’s culinary and cultural background, guests are treated to signature tastes from seven to nine different stops along the way.

Who takes our food tours? Locals rediscovering the region, out-of-town visitors, corporate groups, couples, coworkers, friends, family, DIY enthusiasts, amateur cooks, and professional chefs – pretty much anyone who enjoys learning about food and likes to eat.

Led by founder Lisa Rogovin and her team of knowledgeable epicurean concierges – many with culinary training, cooking experience, or food writing backgrounds – these food tour adventures take guests behind-the-scenes into the best of the Bay Area’s acclaimed food communities, where they will discover delicious savory treasures and sweet gems one bite at a time. Bon Appetit.
