We selected Dylan's Tours based upon the excellent ratings here on TA. We booked the Full Day tour which included Muir Woods and Alcatraz Island. We were picked up approximately 15 minutes late at the designated bus stop by Layla, our guide for the day. Overall the day was fun but could have been better. No complaints about our guide... More

Our driver was very informative and knew all the facts. She let us off at the Palace of Fine Arts so we could walk around at the end of the tour. It is an all day tour but you get to see all of San Francisco and Muir Woods. We stopped in the Height Ashbury district to grab sandwiches and... More

We did the Famous Tour with Eli today and found it to be exceptional! Eli was very friendly, and really knowledgeable with every aspect of the city. He made everyone feel welcome and took us to some great spots and gave us all his tips on great places to eat, which is great in order to avoid the typical tourist... More

Book this tour well in advance if you wish to add a visit to Alcatraz to the end. We had one day in transit in San Francisco and wanted to see the main sights. Leyla, our tour guide, turned up in her comfortable minibus exactly on time at the agreed meeting point in Union Square. She is delightful company, great... More

I have to agree with all the other reviewers and confirm that Dylans Tours is fantastic! We did the whole day city tour, including the Golden Gate bridge and Muir Woods and had a great day which didn't feel rushed unlike other tours we have been on. Our tour guide (sorry can't remember his name which I really should as... More

We did A Day in the Bay with Layla yesterday. She was a fantastic guide- very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was great too. Definitely worth the price.

For never visiting San Francisco this tour was the best. Our guide Julio took us all over and he explained each area in detail with some humor which was appreciated. Julio was an exceptional tour guide and very knowledgeable. This is the way to go if you are visiting SFO. There is no way you could drive through the crazy... More

Booked Dylan's tour for my first full day in San Francisco based on the reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. We visited many areas of SF in a few hours and our guide Brendan (Dylan's brother) was brilliant. There were short stops for photos and we had over an hour in Muir woods which was long enough to...

This tour was fabulous ...Dylan was a fabulous guide thoughtful, and rearranged the order to take into account the travel. It was a comprehensive tour of San Fran, going to Muir Wood Sausilito and all the districts...our trip was longer than advertised and it was absolutely great.

I did the Famous Tour with Eli and I enjoyed everything: the warm welcome, the neighboorhoods he brought us to, the serious and fun facts, the insider's tips, etc. He even had a soundtrack to fit every part of the day, isn't that great? If you aren't to visit SF by car, this tour is for you. If you don't... 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.
