Ryan was wonderful! He took us on streets that you would think are only small paths, but had the best views of the city and unique city gardens. These were great hidden gems! Thanks Ryan for a great day!

My second tour with Ryan (first one Nov. 2015). Most interesting and intimate stories about the city and its people. Three hours of walking and learning - better therapy than any shopping :)

I've done 2 of the tours with Ryan and both of them have been excellent. Extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. I live in the Bay Area, but I love seeing the tucked away places and learning about the neighborhoods. Great for visitors and locals.
