I really enjoyed having Claire show me around the city! She is so knowledgeable, with lots of fun facts and interesting stories. She knows way more about the San Francisco area than my friends who grew up there! She's very high energy, funny, and entertaining. Her tours make you feel more like you are adventure companions rather than tourists following... More

For an old wannabe hippy this was an excellent San Francisco nostalgic experience - no flowers in my hair (haven't got any hair) but if you're the right age you'll know what I mean. Claire was an excellent, knowledgeable guide and great fun to be with. Definitely recommended. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. The walking part is not at all... More

We loved the North Beach urban adventure, it really showed us an area of San Francisco off the tourist path that we would never have found on our own. Our guide Claire was great fun, informative but informal and super friendly, so we didn't feel like we were getting a scripted tour, just felt like we were getting shown around... More

I took the Bridge and the Beach walking tour and loved it. Here's why: -Best views of the Golden Gate Bridge I've ever seen and taken pics of! -Fun exploring the batteries, beaches, Land's End trail and the Sutro Baths -- which as a visitor to SF I would never know about and never go out of my way to...

San Franscisco is such a diverse town, that every neighborhood is unique and exciting. This tour forcused primarily on North Beach, which is THE nightlife area. It was a great opportunity to both learn about an historical area of SF, but also party with friends and the guide, who was not only informative but very charming and entertaining.

Had a blast! Really wanted to do a pub crawl there that had more to it then just drinking. Saw some really cool spots, learned some fun facts, and had a wonderful funny guide to show us around. Happy happy happy :)

We visited several different pubs/bars in the downtown area. Went to one of the oldest pubs, took advantage of some local entertainment and able to do a little sightseeing. Our guide, Kenny, knew a lot about the area and made sure we all had a great time. Looking forward to another trip and trying out another tour.
