This was an unexpected and great one-on-one tour. The tour guide had an excellent knowledge of the history of the early San Francisco entrepreneurs and the families of great wealth. Viewing the interiors of the major hotels was a treat. Tour on 7/28/2017.

rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
