Ryan is both knowledgeable about the history of San Francisco, but he is also extremely personable and easily connects to his guests. Each experience is one of a kind because he listens to his guests and tailors the tour to meet the guest's expectations!

Fantastic tour of vibrant parts of San Francisco that we otherwise wouldn't have visited. Ryan was an engaging, knowledge and entertaining guide. He was also great to deal with and very flexible in accommodating our groups wishes. Definitely would rate as a 5 out of 5

Erudite and a wealth of knowledge, Ryan led us on a tour that covered architecture and history of the famed Castro district that had us both laughing and gasping at the sights. We were in amazement at Ryan's knowledge of history of the district and it made us want to delve deeper. We revisited two of the stops on the tour the following day and would have done more if we had more time. Highly recommended!

Ryan was awesome! He was energetic and very knowledgeable. He gave us the "off the beaten path" tour that we were hoping for. It was like walking around the city with a friend! Highly recommend Ryan as a guide.

My family of 4 had the pleasure of touring with Ryan 2 days ago. A few tag words from our teenage kids: awesome, learned so much and crazy fun! Ryan is a down to earth, genuine and intelligent man who loves his job and it shows. We learned so much history from Ryan. The stories and facts he shared will remain with us and we now understand roots about this beautiful city and its people. Thanks a million Ryan!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You’re so welcome!! I had such a lovely time with your family. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in California. Come back and visit us again!

Ryan led our walking tour of the Castro area of SF in unseasonably hot weather. Ryan is full of enthusiasm and love for the area. We saw many things we had heard of as well as many local spots we would not have seen without this tour. We definitely got our money's worth and more. The ice cream stop was a wonderful respite. Travelers need to be in decent shape. People who have knee/hip issues or difficulty with stairs may want to take a different trip.

Ryan is passionate about his city & the people who live there. He bubbles with enthusiasm & energy and sweeps the visitor along with him. His tour takes you to iconic & funky shops & restaurants, lovely 19th century houses and many painted murals. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the city and is warm and humorous. Take a tour with this engaging guy; you'll have a blast!

Ryan is a terrific tour guide. He's high energy and he customized our tour based on our interests. We have been to San Francisco's Chinatown before, but with Ryan we saw areas we never knew existed. Ryan was able to share historical facts, while showing us beautiful scenery and having fun, all at the same time! Our 12 year old daughter was with us and she had a great time as well. The walking tour is active, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. We're used to walking a lot and loved it! Thanks Ryan!

Ryan was outstanding- I have engaged private tour guides in multiple locations in the US and Europe , he was by far one of the best. His knowledge and history of the area was delivered with detail. I'll be engaging him for his other tours when I return to SF again A+++++++

What a fantastic experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed Ryan's knowledge and enthusiasm. A brilliant tour to see a different part of San Francisco that we wouldn't have discovered ourselves.

Ryan was fantastic! he's very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. The kids enjoyed the tour as did the parents esp because this is not a touristy tour, but an insiders view of local favorites as well as this section of the city's highlights. We highly recommend him and would book him again in a heartbeat. Thanks Ryan!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Super fun!!!

Ryan was a wonderful guide. He was enthusiastic, knowledgable and fun to be with. He obviously loves his city. We took this tour after being on an organized 5 day tour and he tied up all the loose ends answering questions on a variety of topics. Our 3 generation group felt it was time well spent. Be prepared to walk a lot, but it is worth it.
