Went with 2 friends and had a great time. Two of us had done the tour several years ago and wanted the third friend to go on it. She enjoyed it too!

I took the tour on nice sunny day. The Tourguide was on time at Union Square and knows so much about San Francisco. He showed us little hitten "treasures" and had lots of stories to tell. The tour is easy, a nice walk, no hills to climb up... No reservation is required, so just show up on time.

Bus ride to the pacific heights from downtown. Jay was very helpful, easy to understand, (he enunciates and uses big gestures). Tour was informative, guide was friendly. I was especially impressed with the time inside Queen Anne's Bed and Breakfast. Very nicely decorated. I believe it used to be a boarding school for young ladies.

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
