Good General Overview of SF

We arrived at the waiting area by walking up what seemed to be the biggest hill in San Fran, a great warm-up to start the tour :). Guide was organized and informative. Covered Nob Hill, touched on Union Square, spent most of the time (it seemed) in Chinatown, ended in North Beach (getting a cab in this area was not as easy as we thought). Great photo opportunities. Liked the fact that the guide wore a speaker instead f having to wear headsets. Overall good general tour of the areas above and we were able to get the lay of the land. Do this at the beginning of the trip to familiarize yourself with these areas of the city.

our family- 3 adults, 2 kids (15 & almost 12), took this tour in mid-July, 2010. we are not a physically fit group, by any stretch, but found the walking to be very tolerable and not too strenuous, at all. the way the tour was planned (Nob Hill to China Town to North Beach) is laid out in a way that i think we went up just 1 small hill on the tour- which is quite a feat (pun intended), considering SF is an 80% uphill city! our tour guide was entertaining, informative and polite. she was very personable and gave recommendations on sites to see and establishments to visit. great sense of humor. she gave a great tour- educating us on the "founding fathers" of SF in Nob Hill, giving a behind the scenes look at areas of China Town (not just the fringe, touristy part), and a good look at the Italian neighborhood of North Beach. all in all, a great tour- not too strenuous (as some reviews had warned), not too much "adult" humor (as some reviews had warned), but very informative and one of the highlights of our week-long vacation in SF. Excellent!

We are a couple visiting San Francisco from Canada for the first time. AJ our guide made us feel very welcomed. We were part of a group of 6 on the tour. It was a great way to start off our vacation. AJ was a very entertaining and informative guide. She also shared suggestions for restaurants and transportation. This was one of our highlights of our visit. We would highly recommend this tour to visitors to the city.

Had a wonderful time, the guide was funny, imformative & despite walking more than we thought we could, we did it because it was fun & engaging. She showed us photos backing up the history which was a wonderful touch. Can't say enough about how much fun we had! Thanks.

Wealth of knowledge + sense of humor

My husband and I took this walking tour to learn more about San Francisco's history. Our guide was fabulous. Great sense of humor doubled with factual knowledge. No reading cards for this gal! She was full of information and historical facts. I am a retired tour director (although our guide did not know that) and firmly believe if you want to know what you're looking at, hire this company!

Although our 'group' amounted to only three people, we were greeted warmly and treated to a wonderful tour! We have already recommended this tour to others we met, including family members living in the San Francisco area. Thank you!

We found the experience to be very enjoyable. Our guide was very knowledgable of the city and was cleary enthusiastic about it's history and character. The walking was not as difficult as we feared. Overall we are glad we took the tour.
