We had such a great time with Alejandro today, as we toured the city for 6 hours. He was full of knowledge, good humor as we biked around San Francisco. Up hills were a breeze thanks to the electric motors..highly recommend.

So glad I chose Dylan's tour. It was well worth the money. We had PEAR as ou guide and he was very informative and personable. We could have never done all the sites on our own. The van was very comfortable and we had a great group of people to share our tour. Would highly recommend Dylan's for your tour... More

Dylan's Famous Tour (6 hours) is surely one of the most interesting, small group guided tours available in SFO. It takes you to several of the top sites in the city, crosses the Golden Gate Bridge to charming Sausalito and ends with a ramble through the magnificent Muir Woods redwood forest. Our guide/driver Leila was outstanding - her courtesy and... More

My 19 year old daughter and I did this tour in Jan 2016. I'm convinced it is the absolute best way to see the SF plus Sausalito & Muer woods! Warning. This tour is all day so well worth its price tag! Convenient Pickup & drop off. As the tour guide takes you to ALL of the hotspots in SF,... More

Layla was totally filled with facts about the city and was willing to make sure we see the best of what the city has to offer. There was something to see or hear the entire tour. A+ ----- Just a great tour!

My partner and I hired two electric bikes and spent an awesome day touring the city on our own. Went over the bridge and followed the map that were given. Much easier than expected! Staff were very helpful getting us kitted up too.

My wife and I traveled to San Francisco to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and spent three days there. We wanted to see lots of sights without it being overwhelming and read the rave reviews about Dylan Tours. We were not to be disappointed!

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.
