This is a great tour. The electric bikes make it very easy to get around and it is amazing how much you can see in the 5-6 hour time span all without spending too much energy peddling around. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable of the city. Highly recommended.

A wonderful way to see a snapshot of San Francisco. Small groups personalised the experience. Tour guide Sam[antha] was excellent combining humour with her extensive knowledge, She even humoured us with our excitement at seeing sites we had only previously seen on tv. Acting as our personal photographer was also no problem for Sam. An excellent tour we would highly... More

My Brother and I did the City Loop E-Bike Tour to get a broad tour of San Francisco. Using the E-Bikes to get around San Fran is THE BEST! The bikes are extremely comfortable with a cushy touring seat and can be pedaled and ridden like a regular bike, or, with the simple twist of the throttle on the handle,... More

Our first full vacation day in San Francisco was spent with Layla as she took us throughout the San Francisco area as our tour guide. The 6 hour tour involved the solitude of Muir Woods, the beauty of Sausalito, the history of the Mission District, breath taking views overlooking San Francisco, etc. As our tour guide, Layla was awesome. She... More

We had a fantastic day with Leila. She was awesome, very funny, very knowledgeable and passionate about her subject. We covered a lot in the time available, but at a very comfortable pace. The vehicle was also very good, unlike the tour we had taken a couple of days before with another company. Thanks Dylan and thank you very much... More

My sister and I really enjoyed this tour. It was a perfect taste of everything San Francisco. We've already recommended it to other people. Our tour guide Per was awesome. He was fun, witty, and very informative. Lots of fun, glad we found you on the internet. Thanks for a very enjoyable day!

We had been to San Francisco many times but decided to take Dylan's Tours since we were there for a limited time. With Layla as our guide we saw a lot of things we had not seen before. She drove 5 of us in a van and was so knowledgeable and funny we had a great time. She is a... More

We loved our tour with Leila today, she was so sunny and just the best ambassador for San Francisco! We saw so much more than we could have done left to our own devices and the big draw card was Muir Woods. Thanks so much Leila for a great day!

We were picked up just outside our hotel on time and started a very comfortable tour, ending with a trip to Alcatraz. It was extremely hot but our guide did his best to keep us reasonably cool. Very interesting information was passed to us by our guide and we were not bored for any part of the trip. Having only... 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.
