Thanks! but I am still looking for some walking tour suggestions for San Francisco to fill our days with. Ones where we can explore the city, stop at cafes or other restaurants and taste deliciousness, and just enjoy ourselves. Any ideas for walking trips??

we are also exploring the option of using the Vine public transportation system in Napa county for parts of the trip.. it can easily take us between yountville and st helena or calistoga and down to napa

we have not inquired ab transportation from the lodging.
several of the wineries have expressed that they would be willing to come and pick us up, and we have also called several cab companies.
they have all told us just to call the day before or that morning and give them a list of what times we need to be picked up and where...

hello hounds! I am sorry in advance for the long post.
We are traveling to Napa and San Francisco for 1 week at the beginning of August and are desperately seeking suggestions- we love food, price is not an issue, we are just looking for good food. we will not have a car- we are planning on using taxis in Napa and public transit in San Francisco.
We are staying in Yountville Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday night and in San Francisco on Thursday and Friday night, we will leave for the airport around 11:00.
These are our tentative plans ( I am very open to suggestions and changes!)

Monday: arrive in Napa at 1:45, check in to hotel
--Lunch @ Mustards or Oxbow Public Market
--9:00 dinner @ Bouchon

--Breakfast @ Bouchon Bakery
-- Frank Family Vineyards visit
-- possibly 1 other vineyard visit
--Taylor's Refresher in St. Helena for lunch after/between vineyard visits
--8:30 dinner @ Meadowood (tasting menu, patio seating)

- Breakfast?
-- vineyard visits?
--Lunch TBD depending on Location
--9:00 dinner @ Redd in Yountville

--Breakfast on the go
--Lunch in SF in the Mission - hunting for good tacos and burritos
- From what I have read on here, these are the ones we should try and hit: Taqueria Guadalajara, El Delfin, La Taqueria, Taqueria San Jose, Taqueria Cancun, Farolito Taqueria
--Drinks and Apps at Fifth Floor Lounge
-- Dinner at Coi
--10:30 reservation @ Bourbon & Branch

-- Cable car to Fisherman's Wharf.
-- possible foccaccia breakfast at Liguria Bakery? Truffles and coffee at XOX?
-- Lunch at Yank Sing
-- Explore Haight/ Ashbury... Relax in Golden Gate Park
--9:00 @ Gary Danko

--Breakfast/munching all day at the Ferry Building
-- Leave

I am very open to suggestions- price is not an issue, we are looking for just GOOD food. I would love suggestions about places to stop while exploring different neighborhoods, ideas of things to do during the day. Anything outside would be great!
Thanks in advance!
