I loved learning about... More

I did the flavours and murals tour of Mission which was a fantastic way to be introduced to such a wonderfully vibrant city. The knowledge of the guide was outstanding and she was able to answer all questions. From Dynamo Donuts, mural alleys, Mission Pie, a Spanish bakery and delicious tacos there is something for everyone on this tour. You... More

We had the teenagers be on one team and the adults/younger kids on the other. The teenagers won and had so much fun exploring San Francisco. Great activity tondo with kids and see the city. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to finish because the teenagers finished at least an hour before us. Have fun

This was a great way to see the city. It made it fun for my 12 year old to walk everywhere. She loved the little facts and we went down many streets we would have just passed up. Fun start to a trip.

Myself, my daughter and friend went and did the food and street art tour in the Mission area. We had a fantastic guide, Suzy who had amazing knowledge and insight into this area, it's culture, food and the wonderful street art (this isn't graffiti as we know it!) and walked us leisurely around the area for about 3hrs.
