After seeing the glowing reviews about this company we decided to call them up to try to book a tour. We had a few questions and wanted to simply find out more about the tours so we called and no one ever answers the phone. Basically, you are told to simply book online or leave a message and 'someone will... More

I can not say enough about this tour. Adam was our tour guide and did an excellent job with navigating our day. There is no way we would have been able to see everything we saw in one day on our own. It was a nice small group in your van and has that added personal touch. He gave great... More

We had booked the Dylans 'famous' city tour and then was offered a second tour at a discounted price so decided to do the electric bike tour the next day. The bike tour ended up being the highlight of our trip to San Francisco. The 'famous' tour was OK but I think the guide had been doing it too long... More

Julio was our tourist and my wife and I were very impressed with his knowledge of the city. We saw all the major attractions. We were exhausted by the end because of how much we were able to see. I recommend this tour for all visitors.

This tour is a must do when visiting SF for the first time. Our tour guide was Rolando, a born and bred local. From the time of pick up, to drop off at our hotel front door, the service was exceptional. We opted to take the full day tour which includes Muir Woods. the tour size is just right, with... More

Loved the Electric Bike tour. Samantha was amazing. We had a small group, maybe 6 people and it was such an amazing learning experience, packed with a little adventure. Dress warm in the morning, but be ready to change into something lighter in the afternoon. The deli shop along the way had good sandwiches. I learned so much about SF... More

We had a tour with Eli at the end of June. It was a fun, well-organised and insightful trip. We did the city tour and got a great overview of the neighbourhoods and Eli gave a very good brief history of the area and prominent figures. The size of the groups are not too big and the stops and activities... More

My husband and I did the electric bike tour which rode 20 miles around the city seeing many unique neighborhoods and landmarks. We loved it. The electric bikes make it easy for ALL types! I am not much of a biker and could probably only ride 10 miles on flat land. There's no way I could do even half that... More

Did the full day tour with Brendan. I happened to be busted hungover from the night before, yet due to the awesome guide this was one of the best parts of a two week California tour. Brendan was very knowledgable regarding the history of all different parts of the story, and gave well researched knowledge when asked questions by the... More

Dylan's tours are a great way to see San Francisco with a personal touch. We were only in San Francisco a couple of days. We took the famous tour . We really got to see a lot of the city, while learning fun facts as well. We had Dylan as our tour guide. He could answer all of our questions... 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.
