I am the owner of a walking tour company, and for the past nine years I have been researching the history of the City and designing walking adventures. My walking tour company has been operating for the past seven years.
I offer four different tours of the neighborhoods of San Francisco. . . The Castro, Mission district, Telegraph Hill, Eureka Valley, Chinatown, North Beach, and Russian Hill. All of the tours are approximately four miles each, cover various neighborhoods, and have at least one hill and one stairway on them. I take people to hidden stairways and gardens, amazing vistas, and famous landmarks. Along the way, I use my iPad to show relevant historical photos that are arranged in order of the stops on the tour. The tours were all designed as loops, with the start and finish a landmark spot, so guests do not get lost when the tour is finished.
It has long been a dream of mine to own a business like I have, and I am extremely knowledgable and passionate about everything that is San Francisco.
A Recent Review of this guide
Absolutely wonderful tour...history, food markets, temples, local flora, architecture and more. Ryan was engaging, encyclopedic, and enthusiastic. Our teens enjoyed as well. Great workout up Russian Hill. We would have never found half of the places we went on our own.
