Oakland sightseeing with a LOT more flavor… Unleash your inner foodie during Local Food Adventures’ Rockridge Food Tour! This walking tour explores the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland; it is a heritage tour and food tour wrapped into one tasty (and interesting) package. This is our original Oakland food tour and we’re understandably proud of it! During this three-hour guided walking tour, you will take a walk through the neighborhood, discovering the area’s rich history and exploring its fast-growing dining culture – all while enjoying some seriously delicious flavors along the way!

Our Rockridge Food Tour is just as appealing to visitors as it is to locals; it’s a rare opportunity to learn some little-known facts about the area that may even surprise those who call Oakland (and even Rockridge) home.
