Not your standard tour and all the better for it. I did the famous tour on my first day in San Francisco, nice intimate group and knowledgeable & outgoing guide. Well worth the high TripAdvisor rating, if you are looking for a tour this is the one for you.

If you have two doubts whether to book this tour or not dont even give a second thought and book the tour. Its a very different experience. Feels like you have buddy who is a local and is guiding you through the city. Our buddy was Adam who was awesome and patient and was fun companion to experience city with.

My husband and I did the Famous tour and had Eli as our tour guide. On paper, six hours seems like a long day but it didn't feel like it at all. Eli's knowledge of the city and Bay Area was incredible and he kept us engaged at all times. There were plenty of stops for bathroom breaks and helpful... More

On May 13, four of us did the 3 hour city tour with Dylan himself. It was a fantastic tour of the highlights of San Francisco. Dylan entertained us with many fascinating and humorous anecdotes about the city plus gave us many opportunities for pictures. One of the stops gave us a chance to pick up a coffee or a... More

We get to know SF best places, accompanied of a knowledgeable explanation from Rodrigo, our guide. Equipments and gearment are the best in quality. It was a fun, interesting, well designed and safe tour, and an unforgettable experience.

we had a great time on the e-bike tour. it takes you through the highlights of the city. so much more fun to do it on bikes instead of in a van. you really feel like you absorb it all. e-bikes are quick and cool and less strenuous, so it's the best of all worlds. our guide Rodrigo loves the...

We took the 6 hour mini van tour and it was fantastic. I couldn't recommend it more highly. Adam our guide grew up in the area and really knew about all of the places we visited. When I first booked this tour I was a little hesitant because of the length. Don't let that scare you. Plenty of bathroom breaks... More

We took the tour yesterday. Our guide Andre was awesome. He knew so much about everywhere we went. Even answered questions we had that were not associated with the tour. He was welcoming and also kept us laughing throughout the trip. The best thing we all liked was not being rushed at all. We had as much time as we... More

My husband and I took the e-bike tour recently and we were glad we did it. Samantha was our tour-guide. She was very friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and over-all very very good! We got to see a lot of the city from different locations and got to learn more about the city history as well. The e-bike is the way to... 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.
