We lucked out with a beautiful sunny, clear day, and our guide Rolando is an excellent guide, with considerable knowledge of the archtecture, history, people and neighborhoods. His delivery was very interesting and engaging. We’d highly recommend this tour to any first-time visitors to this...More

Met at the Hyde st cable car gazebo. Bus was about a 32 seater. Would have preferred a smaller group but it beat Gray line. Driver/guide (Rolando?) talked almost non-stop and that was a good thing. Covered all the neighborhoods listed in the online ad...More

Our guide was Adam. He had a great sense of humour which was much to our liking. His stories were engaging and had a personal touch. He dealt with the resident "negative Nell" that you invariably get in every group very well. There was enough...More

Our local guide was amazing! He had great knowledge of the city but spoke in a way that kept you entertained the entire time. Love the small size of the bus. Great job of time organization with each stop. We loved this tour!

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.

No. We went close to it but not over it. Not sure if they would go over it but you could call and ask them.
