On our daughters' first visit to San Francisco (ages 9 & 12), we booked a reservation with Beth on the City Clues tour and couldn't have spent a better morning - immersed in Chinatown and North Beach. Beth's expertly coordinated efforts guide family interaction, authentic discovery and ensure that you notice things you would NEVER have experienced on a casual... More

While visiting SF I wanted to do a guided tour, but wasn't sure a traditional tour would have worked with my youngest child, so we booked a City Clues Adventure tour. It turned out that my kids (ages 13 and 4) and I were the only ones signed up that day. I think the kids would have been more enthusiastic... More

The City Clues Adventures scavenger hunt was a great addition to our bachelorette trip. Beth and Linda were great! They had customized a wedding-themed/bachelorette-trip scavenger hunt with inclusion of food clues and cocktail stops for us. The cost of food was included in the price, but the cocktails were not--which was great because some of us don't drink! All the... More

We booked a family scavenger hunt tour the first day that we arrived in SF and it was a perfect way to start the vacation! There was so many hidden treasures, fun little games, and enough variety that kept my whole family entertained for 3.5 hours (which is not an easy task!).

City Clues Adventures is a perfect way to tour the different neighborhoods of San Francisco. Our two kids (7 and 9) loved visiting so many hidden gems: like the Chinese Temple (somewhere I never would have known I could enter). The friendly competition of the scavenger hunt certainly kept the kids (and the parents) motivated. The day was fantastic day.... More

We had three families combined into two teams competing on a scavenger hunt with adults, kids and teens. We had so much fun exploring the city - no time to stop and shop we were on a mission. We highly recommend this to groups, families and anyone that has adventure and fun on their mind.

I booked 5 kids on a scavenger hunt for a birthday party and they had a blast venturing through Chinatown and North Beach. The day was lovely and we would recommend this adventure for kids 11 and up. Have fun!

We took five 9-year-olds on this tour for our daughter's birthday! Every one of them had a great time, and I think they all slept well that night! We explored Chinatown, North Beach (including Lombard Street), and Fisherman's Wharf! Beth had age-appropriate games and scavenger hunts, and gave us all good instructions and directions. She also knew the right tea... More

I took my 7 and 9 year old grandsons on this tour. They really enjoyed the scavenger hunt through downtown , Chinatown and North Beach. The scavenger hunt made the tour much more interactive instead of just listening to a tour guide. The pace and amount of walking were good for both my grandsons and myself (age 67). However I...

We used City Clues Adventures to plan a treasure hunt for a group of tour guides from all over the country at our semi-annual conference. The treasure hunt was not only a great team building activity but also highlighted San Francisco's culture and history. Everyone had a fabulous time. It was a great thinking -outside- of- the- proverbial- box opportunity... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
