Welcome to Oakland, a city infamous for side shows, Black Panthers and our vast selection of Taco Trucks! Join our walking food tour and learn about the best taco spots (including restaurants and taco trucks) and the history of the bustling Fruitvale District. Yes, taco trucks line the city streets, but if you have never ventured into the illustrious streets of east Oakland, then you haven't tasted tacos like these, and most likely never will! With the knowledge and feel of the history of the Fruitvale district, tacos will never taste more succulent!

After meeting at the notorious Fruitvale Station, introduce ourselves before walking to a popular center in the heart of the Fruitvale to learn more about the history of the neighborhood. We will visit 2 of our favorite local taco joints to rate our favorite tacos ourselves. Lastly, we will end with a sweet surprise that's sure to have you coming back again!

Guests will leave with a full belly, new taco-loving friends and a deeper knowledge of the history of the beautiful people who make up the classic Fruitvale district.

I am a Bay Area native and have survived off of tacos in times of highs, lows, joys and pains. While the landscape has changed, my love for the food and for the people who make up my city has not. I am excited to bring you insight into our local ecosystems, which sustain diverse populations from all walks of life.

While many visitors stay close to Lake Merritt or downtown, the taco and cultural insights there are super limited, so it's my honor to introduce you to the real side of Oakland, where migrants and millionaires share space, experiences and love for tacos!

We had a great time together with my friend on the private East Oakland Taco tour! Acacia guided the tour. In fact, we weren't really expecting much from the tour – possibly, a few tips on the good street food and a nice walk around the neighborhood. But gosh we were mistaken! When we asked for some neighborhood historical background on our way from one taco spot to another, Acacia shared a dozen bittersweet stories about the area's past and present, including those of her childhood. That certainly added great value to the tour. I absolutely admired the way Acacia was showing us around: she shared her true love, respect, and support for the local businesses and communities. She appeared to be an absolutely cheerful and knowledgeable companion to us, and at the same time, she was literally saying hi to everyone around. Totally recommend the Oakland Taco tour for those hungry both for food and connection with the local communities.
