This was my favourite part of our trip. I just loved the shops. They had the granny gowns for the 60's and 70's and incense burning. The sidewalks are full of cracks and you can hear Janice Joplin belting it out as you're walking down the streets. We stopped at a small beauty salon and had a manicure for $10.00.... More

It is with sad news that I have to announce Izu has passed away. She passed away to be with her friends from the 60's. Please add to this comment stream of your experiences so we can keep her alive in our memories.

Our (adult) family of 5 went on the walking tour with Stan. We usually don't like to sign up for tours because of the time frames. I have to say this was the highlight of our entire trip to SF. Stan was so interesting and knowledgeable. He knew and spoke to many of the locals as we walked on the... More

Great trip thru the history of Haight Ashbury. Tour covered the history of this district and hit some of significant locations from it's hey day in the 60's. Terrific tour guide.

I don't know if things have changed with Izu but serious, I can't believe the 4 and 5 star reviews. I am not a difficult customer but this was ridiculous. Firstly she was 15 minutes late and seemed very shall we say "strange" . I'm sure she is a lovely person but as a tour guide- no. We were hoping... More

We spent a great Saturday morning walking around Haight Ashbury with Kevin Carney (aka Stan Flouride). He gave us so much information about the area, including the hippie era in the 1960's and 1970's. He told us about all the good, the bad and the tragic - The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Anissa Jones, the fire department, the trees, the... More

Please, do yourself a favor and do not take this tour. I am baffled by the amount of positive reviews and the scarcity of negative reviews. Unfortunately, I believe that what is happening here is that Izu, our tour guide, is a nice friendly person so people are hesitant to write the sad truth about this tour. I however feel... More

Nice walking tour with Izus. Technically there could have been a better tour but not a better tour guide. Everything presented during the tour is readily available on wikipedia, but it was nice to see the sights. Tour guide was late and is really out of it for only being 59, i think she is over compensating with her "hippie"... More

What I liked most about the tour was guide Izu's deep knowledge about the neighborhood. She starts with its historical beginnings and as the tour continues, you will gain a full understanding of what happened in the Haight for about a 100-year timespan. She was personally acquainted with many of the neighborhood's most famous residents and she imparts a lot... More
