We went as a group - there were 14 of us from a dragonboat team in SF for the dragonboat festival. We totally enjoyed the tour. The guide was very entertaining and informative. We learned a lot and really enjoyed out trip., Would definitely recommend

Both of us really enjoyed the tour - AJ was enthusiastic, informative, and fun. Plus she made sure everyone got individual attention. We got a lot out of it and subsequently visited some recommended spots. She was awesome and this was worthwhile. We'd highly recommend it! Thanks from both Ginger & Doug

We had a group of locals and internationals in town for a team meeting, and we thought this tour would be the best way to see SF and get some activity in as well-- and we were right!

I've personally done some other walking tours via Zerve in other cities, and this one lived up to the high standards set by those others-- the tour company was very helpful in coordinating, answering questions, and doing some customization for us (accomodating one member in a motorized scooter, ending the tour near our dinner destination, etc).

The tour guide was great-- full of energy, funny, engaging. Good combination of corny jokes and local knowledge!

I highly recommend this tour!

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!

AJ was very lively and knowledgable about San Fran. & its history. Saw the often missed sights. thw walk was not fast paced, almost liesurely. Covered alot of ground in a short 3 hours. I highly reccommend this tour.

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.
