I did the Crusin the Castro tour in the 5th of March 2014 (yes it's taken me awhile to get back on here and rate it!) and I had a great morning. Kathy is very knowledgable about the area and the history and takes you to all the important landmarks you want to see and even took some pictures of... More

This tour is really really great, even if you knew so much about the castro you will know even more. this was our highlight in san francisco, Kathy was awesome,such a sweetheart & even helped us find our way to Haight-Ashbury. If you haven't done this tour, i strongly suggest it.

I took the your with Kathy yesterday and had a great time. let me open by saying that I was a little skeptic about the tour since I've been to the Castro many times and wasn't sure what else was there to see. Plus, forecast suggested rain and I thought this could either be a huge success or a big... More

Kathy was amazing. She was punctual, personal, and truly made you feel like you lived in the Castro your entire life. She introduced us to local residents of the Castro who were instrumental to the Gay Civil Rights movement and who personally knew Harvey Milk. I would highly recommend her tour to anyone who wants to learn and experience this... More

Wonderful tour of the Castro! Kathy was a superb guide: knowledgable, entertaining and passionate about the Castro and its history in the gay rights movement. You'll see all the major sights in the area and learn about its people and history, not to mention plenty of fun and witty facts and tales. I really cannot recommend this tour more highly.... More

Tour include history of the Castro : architecture, Gay and Lesbian history in the Castro, and great historic points of interest. Our tour guide was friendly and allow us to ask questions. One point take the tour before your trip begins. It adds to the Castro experience. Thanks

A very informative tour of a historic district of the city. Kathy did a great job of covering the history of the Castro district along with the importance of Harvey Milk's contribution to the LGBT movement. I would highly recommend this two hour tour.

This tour was superb - mainly due to the efforts of our guide, Kathy. Kathy brought a warmth, enthusiasm and such a depth of knowledge to this walk. The insight and history was harrowing at times but was always tinged with Kathy's positivity and hope. A real bonus to this tour is that everyone knows Kathy... waving and saying hello...... More
