The tour guide Kathy is a great source of history of the community. The two hour walk is a great way to get familiar with the Castro neighbourhood and learn about the Queer history. Highly recommend this tour.

We took our 4 teenage sons on this tour in the hope of learning more about the Castro’s role in the human rights movement. We thought Kathy was passionate, informed and friendly. The neighbourhood is great and we learnt a lot.

Did the tour together with my family from Germany. Kathy was great and very engaging. It's a shame how LGBTQ+ people still don't have the same rights throughout the U.S. and the world. Many interesting stories about about LGBTQ+ movement in San Francisco. Only downside:...More

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theaters and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
