I now live on the Peninsula south of San Francisco, and offer my visitors tours of Silicon Valley and San Francisco and points beyond. I invite you to take a tour with me.
I never tire of showing the beauty, the bustle, and the excitement of our area to visitors and residents alike. I have been conducting tours since 2010 and became a "certified guide" per the San Francisco Tour Guide Guild in 2015. I hope you will visit the Bay area and join me for a tour soon!
My tours vary depending on my group.
Many of my tours originate in San Francisco, where I frequently serve as a step-on guide for a motorcoach or tourists or students. I also enjoy conducting walking tours (Chinatown, the waterfront, etc. ) public transportation tours (trolleys, buses, and cable cars), and driving tours in my own car (up to 4 passengers). Besides San Francisco, I also conduct tours in Silicon Valley, Napa and Sonoma wine country, Yosemite, Monterey and Carmel, Muir Woods and Sausalito, and unique destinations chosen by the tourists.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking the hills around the Bay, reading books about the people and places of the area, and discovering new perspectives about California to add depth to my tours.
Exploring this landscape is always new, always fresh, and always inspiring. I thrill at uncovering little-known and yet significant events in and around the Bay area.
I welcome you to tour the area with me and deepen your appreciation for the Bay area.
A Recent Review of this guide
Sharon was phenomenal.Her knowledge and photographic memory would put many of us to shame. We were 3 surgeons visiting San Francisco with one day free.We had an 8 hour tour which included many of the local sights. It was unfathomable that so much could be seen in such a short time and yet Sharon did it with ease. I always enjoy guided tours because of the relaxed and informal nature as well as the ability to be flexible in the sights to visit. Highly recommended and we will be using her next time we visit
