Ryan is an outstanding guide. His knowledge of the history and local lore of the city was beyond incredible. We enjoyed 3 different tours during our stay and could have gone on many more. You will not be disappointed if you choose to take any of Ryan's tours.

Wow! Bravo, Roam Local! We had such a great time on our Mission/Castro tour! Being a tourist in my own city is always fun, but our tour w/ Roam Local made this experience truly memorable. My friend came to visit, and I decided to take her “off the beaten path”, away from the tourist traps. Our tour guide Ryan is a true SF expert. He was so knowledgeable, and he shared many interesting and rare-facts (even my native-self didn’t know these gems of knowledge and secret corners of the city). I can’t wait to go on ALL of the RoamLocal tours!

This tour is just what we wanted. It was so refreshing to get off the beaten path and have a personal tour through the neighborhoods of San Francisco. Ryan reached out ahead of time to let us know what to expect, led us on a 3 hour walk through areas we never would have seen. His knowledge spanned everything from history of the city and neighborhoods, to architecture, to art, to plant and wildlife. We had a great time, and highly recommend him!

We recently went on a private walking tour of Chinatown with Ryan Curtis of Roamlocal. It was extraordinary. His exuberance and knowledge was beyond the pale. The day was beautiful and the sights, sounds, and smells of the area were enhanced by Ryan's detailed description of what we were experiencing. An incredible part was the use of his ipad with historical photographs of the places where we were. While he was giving us information, many other people would stop to listen and ask questions. We plan to take each and every one of his tours. We give you an A+ Ryan.
