Before we had to work this week . Me an My colleagues had 1 day to see the city. And we choose Dylan, which turned to be a great choice. When having a jetlag you want a perfect combination of rest and activity. And with his bustour we had a great active walk through the nature of Muirwoods, but also... More

We booked the minivan tour based on the reviews on trip advisor and we were not diappointed. We were lucky to have a beautiful day in SF so got to see the city in its shining glory. Julio our driver gave us a lot of interesting information and background to the areas we travelled through. As a local he gave... More

My husband and I immensely enjoyed the combination city tour and Muir Woods tour on 01/30/2017 with Eli. He was such an interesting tour guide and provided many awesome facts about the city. I have been on several tours of San Francisco over the years, however, most of those were conducted on large buses. I highly recommend using Dylan's Tours... More

We had a group private tour scheduled with Marlin that was so much better than any other tour we've taken. He was very knowledgeable and personable and really made the tour that much better. Any other tour could have taken to the same spots but Marlin really went above and beyond to make it fun. We saw so many sights... More

We booked the Famuos Tour for a foggy, rainy day and still had so much fun. Thanks to Leila, we saw so many different neighborhoods of San Francisco and it seemed, she just knows everything about her city. That was actually the main reason to go with Dylan's Tour, to have this local touch and to get a hint more... More

Dylan's Famous Tour of San Francisco is fantastic. Our tour guide Marlin was awesome, his knowledge of San Francisco was great, he was very helpful and friendly. We love the smaller and personal tour experience and would definitely recommend it to all our friends and family who would like to tour SF. One thing that I would recommend is to... More

This tour is not expensive for the experience. There are many tours I researched and I'm glad my wife and I took this one. You spend many hours visiting areas that you would never think about visiting on your own. We went to many historical areas, crossed the bridge into a popular forest for trail walking, and more. Definitely worth... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
