Fact filled Fun

AJ was an outstanding tour guide, she made all of us feel at ease and kept the pace of things going so we did not get bored or miss an opportunity to learn some fascinating facts or tidbits. When Jane, my wife, got back home she immediately started looking up stories about the Emperor (this may become a little dangerous, especially if she tries to print her own money). She is now a royal convert and I got major points for booking this tour as part of our 23rd anniversary celebration. Peace

Lots of knowledge

I had been to San Francisco a half dozen times before but had never taken a tour. Learned a lot of facts and interesting info. Enjoyed all the various areas that we walked through.

The negative was at the end. We knew we would end up far from where we started. I asked about how do we get back and was off handed told to take a bus or cab. I am unfamiliar with city buses and decided to take a cab. Had no idea where to find one, and then I saw one, it was always full (this was rush hour). We ended up waiting for over 30 minutes before we found one.

Our guide was full of information and humor--I liked her puns! Enjoyed hearing about the history of San Francisco. Very helpful. Wish I would have taken notes to refer to later. Thank You!

AJ did a wonderful job. Her puns are wicked. I was a very hot day yet we all survived well and my sister and brother-in-law and I were still able to walk more than another mile to their hotel. I saw the write-up in the Chronicle -- timely happenstance.

Fabulously fun and informative

We really enjoyed our comedy walking tour "The Whole Shebang". We did this on our second day of five in San Francisco, and it was a great way to get an idea of areas other than Fishermans's Wharf that we might want to explore further. We learned so much interesting history about San Francisco and the tour was a ton of fun. We certainly used our new-found navigational skills to plan nights out for the balance of our time and hope to come back to see more of San Francisco. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting to get a great overview of the city and it's history.

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

Whole Shebang tour great for business group activi

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!
