We loved this A+++ tour. Jay was a very well-informed, amiable guide. We learned so much about the styles and history of the Victorian and Edwardian homes on this walking tour. The tour began with a short city bus trip directly to our starting point, so as to avoid climbing up the streets of San Francisco. Jay's introduction to the... More

This is a must do tour if your coming to San Fran. The gentleman that runs the tour, "Jay", is a polite, caring and knowledgeable chap. He knows that the tour needs to travel up some hills to see some of the gorgeous buildings, so having a local Bus take you up those, just adds to the adventure of the... More

I was dragged to this with my wife. It turned out to be a great tour. You get to see a lot of nice looking homes. The walk was nice. He has a route that does not go up any hills. You get to see a part of San Fran you do not get to see on any other tour.... More

The Victorian Home Walk is a perfect SF tour! No need for advance reservations. Super reasonably priced. And it doesn't take the entire day - you can still have lunch, go shopping, or do whatever other things you've planned in the City By The Bay. Jay is filled with historic stories of San Francisco - what we see in various... More

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.
