I only had one day to see as much of San Francisco as possible, and this was a great way to accomplish that! Bob was our guide, and he was very personable. He shared lots of good information as he took us all over the city. The tour was paced well enough to have time at a few stops and... More

Went with local guy Julio last week. Thoroughly enjoyed the day with well timed stops and lots of local knowledge from Julio. Very helpful with a dry humour. Muesli bars and lots of water on the mini bus it all added up to a most relaxing informative day. 10 out of 10 Dylans and well done Julio (not Ben!).

Dylan's Famous Tour was a great way to see San Francisco's eclectic neighborhoods as well as Sausalito and Muir Woods. Adam, our guide, was great. He had a sincere love for his city and was very knowledgeable. Thanks!

My dad and I went on the electric bike tour this past Saturday and had an amazing time! We got to the shop a bit early and were allowed to test the bikes and figure out how to use the "electric" part. After that, we were off! Our tour guide, Alasdair (pronounced like Allister) took us to about 20 spots... More

For a great overall tour of San Francisco, look no further. I did the Famous SF Tour and I can honestly say that it was worth every dime. Well-informed guide, great commentary on all the sites and comfortable mode of transportation. If you're looking for a tour that covers SF highlights, you should definitely use Dylan's Tours. You cannot go... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
