“A must for every queer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

A great overview of SF history and the importance of the Castro. If there were a gay pilgrimage then this tour would be part of it. Kathy is very personable and funny. Highly recommended.

“A very personal tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The tour of the Castro is a very personal event with Kathy. Her ability to be instant friends with everyone makes the tour very enjoyable. Kathys knowledge of the local area, the LGBTQI history and the work of Harvey Milk made the tour informative and relevant. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone.

“Not To Be Missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Kathy was a fantastic tour guide. We were from Canada and found it amazing. We loved the historical aspect she brought to the tour. Each place we visited was such a significant part. Our good fortune to meet a gentleman who knew Harvey Milk was just a fantastic twist of fate. Kathy living in the neighborhood provided on opportunity to see things from an insider view and she gave us great suggestions on where to go to meet people of our similar age and interests. A must for anyone. You don't have to be gay to enjoy this tour. It is truly a walking history lesson.

“Awesome Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

A++
Kathy is a wealth of information and an excellent tour guide. As a first time visitor I was somewhat nervous about how to get to the tour from the Muni Light Rail Powell Street Station. I just asked the ticket agent and arrived at the Castro Station in a matter of minutes.
