NOB HILL TO THE HAIGHT TOUR
Date(s) - 08/17/2021
9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Spend a morning getting to know the real S.F. on our Nob Hill to the Haight tour. You’ll traverse the city on cable-cars, trains and buses as you learn the history, experience the culture and see the beautiful architecture of this amazing city, with its distinct, historic neighborhoods. You’ll also be sure to avoid the crowds at the usual tourist mosh-pits, see some hidden spots that only locals like us know about, and create some unforgettable memories (and photos!).
We’ll start your tour in downtown San Francisco, near Embarcadero, when we take the cable-car up to Nob Hill. This is where the railroad millionaires of the nineteenth century built their mansions (which gave the area its name), because of its central location and fantastic views. From there we take a cable-car and then a train to City Hall. After going inside this magnificent, historic, building, we walk over to nearby Hayes Valley, which is a great place to get a morning coffee, if you need it.
After that we head to the Castro, a hugely important symbol in the LGBTQ+ movement and a fascinating and fun neighborhood, which you’ll learn all about. We finish your Nob Hill to the Haight tour in Haight-Ashbury, which is forever associated with the Hippie and anti-Vietnam War movements. By this time you’ll be hungry and you’re in a great spot to get some lunch (unfortunately magic mushrooms are no longer allowed on the menu).
Our tours can sell out. If you can’t make a booking email [email protected], telling us when you want to go and how many guests are in your party, and if we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
