Certifiable Foodie Tours

Are you planning a visit to the San Francisco Bay Area? Don’t have the time to read and research all those intimate experiences that make your visit memorable. The Bay Area has a wide variety of diverse neighborhoods and small business districts, each with its own culture and specialties. I’ve spent twenty years discovering the Bay Area. Is this is your first or third visit? Perhaps you want to get away from the usual tourist traps, get away from Pier 39 and Coit Tower and dive deeper into our vibrant community and learn what makes it one of the most desirable places in the North America. Perhaps you’d appreciate a personalized tour guide that introduces you and your group to those food finds that seldom get coverage in guide books?

The Certifiable Foodie conducts tours of the San Francisco Bay Area for groups and individuals. I have years of experience in the food industry. I also started my career out aboard some of Cunard’s Ships (Queen Elizabeth and Princess) as a tour director in port.
