When in San Francisco you must see the beautiful Victorian houses. With this walking tour we were even introduced to the inside of one! Very exciting and special. Our experienced guide picked us up at Union square, brought us in a trolleybus to the Queen Anne hotel where we started off. Fascinated by the beauty of the area and the... More

Really enjoyed this walking tour! Learned a lot and got to see a part of San Francisco that we'd never really seen before. Enjoyed touring the hotel that was a former girl's school, learning about the various types of Victorian homes with a little bit of history thrown in. Great value. Would highly recommend it.

Even my reluctant partner enjoyed learning about the history of San Francisco's beautiful Victorian homes as we wandered around Pacific Heights and surrounds. A great tour, really informative. Jay is a great guide and gave us some excellent lunch tips at the conclusion of the tour.

We met Jay at the corner with his sign as advertised on June 12, and he immediately began talking to us about the various architecture styles and homes we would be seeing. He is very informative and answers questions easily. We really enjoyed this tour and recommend it to anyone who is new to San Francisco. Jay puts the group... More

The tour leader, Jay, is such a delight. He clearly knows everything there is no know about Victorian houses and shares his love of them with his group. We toured a large Queen Anne Victorian that was a school at one time and walked leisurely through the streets admiring the lovely homes. Jay avoided the big hills so it was... More
