The guide will explain the details of period and building details that distinguish among different styles. However, the tour goes far beyond an architectural tour de... More

I live in the Bay Area but decided to spend the $25 for this tour to get more information about the Victorians I drive by but never knew details of. Jay is the perfect guide - comprehensive, knowledgeable, fun and he added just a bit of gossip to spice up the almost 2 hours of walking through the Pacific Heights... More

Jay did a great job conveying the wellspring of information he has about the architecture, neighborhoods and history of the area. His restaurant suggestions were also great. I would definitely refer this tour to anyone who wants to see a part of residential history that the buss tours are not allowed to access.

Great history of San Fran. Jay, our guide very colourful and lots of fun. Highly recommend this tour if you love heritage homes, history, fab views, and a nice walk. Learned all kinds of things that we didn't know about the city. Definitely worth 90 minutes of our time..

To be perfectly honest, spending 2 hours walking in San Francisco was not high on my list of things to do the first time I'm visiting this city. But it was on my wife's list, and again, to be perfectly honest, it therefore appeared on my list. And I'm glad it was. Jay, the tour guide, took us on a... More
