About SK Morton's Lousy San Francisco Walking Tour
Do you like history? Arduous treks up steep hills? Being taunted by your tour guide? How about wind? Really, really strong wind. Then this is the tour for you. The hilarious SK Morton is at work on a book called I Left My Heart In San Francisco and All I Got Was This Lousy Rash, and he brings the same information and offbeat sense of humor to his walking history tours of the City by the Bay. From Downtown to Chinatown and beyond, SK is your go-to guy for a laugh and some local knowledge.

SK has done a massive amount of first hand research and his passion shows through not only in his knowledge but also his enthusiasm. Mom and I were on the edge of our seat around every corner. I was extremely impressed with the amount of detailed history one man can pack into each little nook and cranny of the city. I came away even more enthralled with my new home town and cant wait to learn more on future tours.

You do plenty of that: Walk & Talk! Hats off to SK for a VERY animated, humourous, and engaging tour. As others have commented, his knowledge and presentation (including pics and history of how things were) as compared to how they are now was VERY informative! But more important than the details shared was his obvious LOVE of the city, its history, architecture, and the messages conveyed wherever we went! Highly recommend this tour, even if your brain has limitations... like mine! Something WILL stick! :) Even if your not a history or architecture buff. If you miss this tour, you may miss the opportunity to 'leave a piece of your heart in SF.'

Thanks djc. You're very nice. However, while I'll always have feelings for the place of my birth, I don't know if I'd go as far a saying, I LOVE San Francisco. Why did the city ask about me.

We are locals who like to tour the city like tourists. I found this tour and since my hubby is an incredible history buff purchased tickets. SK was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. What amazed me the most was he did all the research himself (being a born/raised San Franciscan). He had more stories than time to tell them. Do yourself a favor - GO ON THIS TOUR! We will be back for the other 2 legs!

Thank you for the compliments Adina. Your review is as appreciated as it is accurate. And you are correct; I do do (Hehehe) all my own research. And because of that, I can confidently say that a good 40% of what I told you was not implausible. Thanks for taking the Lousy Tour and remember our city motto: "To all who come to this happy place, watch your step. That might not be a dog's."

Thanks 39897. I didn't know you didn't know. Sorry about that whole thing with the backhoe. You seemed confident at the time.

We do a lot of tours all over the country. The characteristics that make SK's tour outstanding: He speaks loud enough and slowly enough (but not too slowly, perfect pace) for you to actually hear everything. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable about San Francisco, he was witty, kind to us and others around us, had TONS of historical pictures on his tablet, and took the group's interest into account and customized the tour! This tour is a must. SK is fantastic.

Wow. Thank you so much for the great review Kelps. And thank you for noticing that my voice is neither too loud nor too soft, too fast or too slow. I strive to always do everything too just right.
