The Basics

The Mission typically offers the sunniest, warmest weather in San Francisco, so if you’re looking for a break from the fog and cooler temps, head to the neighborhood for a food tour, bike tour, or walking tour of the district’s colorful murals. You’ll definitely want to make a stop at Dolores Park, where you can admire a view of the San Francisco skyline while picnicking on the grass with locals. The best way to explore the neighborhood is to simply walk it, admiring the architecture and trendy shops.

Mark the tour guide loves what he does. I felt fortunate to experience a neighborhood that is so dear to his heart. We have been to San Francisco at least a half dozen times and never visited the Mission District I was amazed at the beauty and rich cultural past of this district

Mission District Food and Culture Walking Tour
The mission is really cool. Lots of interesting murals and Eric our guide was both informative and entertaining. The food was certainly yummy and local to the neighborhood, but this wasn't a FOOD tour as much as an arts and culture tour with some good food.

Curated 4-Course Mission District Culinary Experience
Ben was a terrific guide. He was very knowledgeable about the mission district and food in general. The first three tastings were all good but would have preferred more selection. Other food tours we’ve been on have had more stops and typically multiple tastings at each stop, sometimes served family style. The last stop for ice cream was just okay. Ben was a good storyteller and tour would have been a five if more food tastings.

San Francisco: Mission District Small Group Mural Art and Food Tour
Enjoyed the Basilica and Church of San Francisco de Asis. Also liked browsing some of the eclectic shops in the area. And, of course, the plethora of intriguing, beautiful, and/or disturbing murals! I liked the alleys, and the residential areas a great deal.

Lots of history, art, walking, but no FOOD!

San Francisco: Mission District Small Group Mural Art and Food Tour
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained a lot of history of San Francisco, the meanings behind the murals and the Mission neighborhood. We felt the title of the tour a bit misleading as it states “Mission District Art & FOOD walking Tour”. We saw the Mission District, did plenty of walking and a few restaurants were pointed out along the way, but we were expecting some type of food sampling’s. Nothing huge, but maybe a taquito from one of the several Taquerias we passed, a quarter of a cookie sample from a bakery or a piece of chocolate. If you don’t want to coordinate with a couple of the restaurants then you should remove the FOOD from the tour title. Simply state “Mission District History & Art Walking Tour” that way it won’t be misleading. Our tour guide Elliot was fantastic! He earned the 5 star rating.

When to Get There

The Mission District is lively at night, when locals gather at some of the city’s best bars and restaurants. If you’d rather browse the shops or enjoy a more relaxed dining atmosphere, explore during the afternoon. For people-watching, head to Dolores Park on a sunny weekend. Carnaval San Francisco is a 2-day multicultural festival that takes place over Memorial Day weekend.

Mission San Francisco de Asís

Founded in 1776 and the oldest structure in San Francisco, Mission Dolores is often overlooked by visitors who go to the Mission District to frequent the shops, bars, restaurants, and park. But it’s worth a stop to see the historic architecture and learn about a piece of California history.
