"All natives and visitors MUST..." I like that idea. Legislating recreation. And it fits with the tour's latest initiative: Paper straws. You're on to something here Angela. And I want to hear more. What do you think of mandatory yellow drawstring backpacks? Thanks for your...More

Thank you for updating R. I really do appreciate it. And I like the idea for a new sparkling wine: "5-Bubble Caliber Champagne: When two bubbles aren't enough to erase the memories."

Just returned from another wonderful SF adventure with SK. This time we did the Yerba Buena tour. It was packed with local history, from the people (settlers, bankers, whisky distributors) to the architecture to some of the city’s secret gardens. The foundations of the city...More

Thanks Don. Yes I am flexible and sensitive. I almost made the US gymnastics team with my routine on the emotionally unbalanced beam.

This was a great tour and lots of fun!! Our award-winning tour guide knew his stuff and shared unique insights into our beautiful city’s history! I love my souvenir bright yellow backpack and hope to enjoy other SK Morton’s walking tours in the future.

Wow! Thanks for the nice review Rose. Just as a side note. If the bag says,"Gucci", it isn't one of our souvenir bags. Can you bring those back please?

Decided to go for a walk in SF but wanted a purpose. Booked a guide with SK Mortou Lousy Walking Tour. We had a great time. Our guide SK was great and the history lesson was fantastic! Totally doing the other tours.

Whoa whoa whoa Rebecca. That's a lot of pressure. I thought we were just walking around and pointing at things. If you're looking for purpose may I suggest SK Morton's Lousy San Francisco Cult. There'll be incense, chanting and a variety of cold cuts.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
