it was fun...but i expected more ground to be covered as far as walking...there is lots to see....but our guide could have taken us many places thru out the downtown core...there was only 4 of us...so more areas could have been covered...such as Telegraph Hill....we had enough time.to do more...our guide certainly knew here food...we really liked the food in China Town....i just thought more walking would have been done

My Sisters Were Thrilled

I booked the trip for my 2 older sisters visiting from Ohio and Michigan. I needed a day off and wanted them to really enjoy the city and not feel dumped by me. Your tour had wow factor. They reported that the leader of the tour was excellent, informative, humorous, gave varied narrative, had little quizzes with prizes, and provided them with a great basis for learning about San Francisco while enjoying themselves. They were so inspired, they didn't return immediately to the exurbs and walked for 3 more hours on their own. Thank you on behalf of them on for giving me a guilt free day off.

A.J., our tour guide, was the best. Learned a lot, saw even more and had a blast. I would highly recommend this tour. Unbelievably fun.

Our group found the tour to be very informative and a nice distance to cover. It would be nice to receive information about the places we visited as well - tough to remember all of the information that was shared with us.

Incredibly informative - you could read about San Francisco for months before arriving and still be impressed by the guide's knowledge.

Let Down

The tour was mediocre. Much too much esoteric historical perspective-no different info than in a tour book-and the humor was below expectation

A great way to find out more about local history!

This was a great way to explore San Francisco and learn about its interesting history.

The guide was knowledgeable, fun, enthusiastic, and took the time to accommodate everyone.

The walking was great exercise and well thought out to minimize the effect of the hills! Enough time was given at each point and even in between to look at and view the subjects being discussed. The guide set a safe, respectful pace, that was easy to maintain. The potty breaks were perfectly timed and well spaced.

Thank you.

It wasn't really what I expected

I expected a factual tour with some comedy. Our guide was not comic but it turns out she was an actress. Although it was informative, we were both a bit bored and bailed after the first hour. I suspect that it would have been a better tour with a comedianne.
