About Discovery Walking Tours

Fueled by food, fantastic scenery, and the power of “why,” these fun, interactive walking tours make science come alive in some of the unlikeliest places. In the streets and shops of San Francisco, discover how cheese and bread are made before enjoying the results at a tasty park picnic. Visit geological wonders during an exploration of the forces that literally shaped the city’s famous hills. Or forego nature’s inventions for the human variety and uncover the notable innovations that were birthed in this city. Edible demonstrations flavor these unique outings so you’re bound to leave filled with more than knowledge.
