This was a fascinating tour!! We had 3 more days in town, so we started with it in order to get the lay of the land. Our guide, Kevin, was so incredibly knowledgeable & was a perfect fit for what we wanted to accomplish. We traveled to & learned about places that we never would have thought of to check out. I can’t say enough about this great city & tour guide. It completely exceeded our expectations!!!
This tour was great! I wish we did it on our first day in SF instead of our last day, because our tour guide, Kevin, gave us so many suggestions for dinners & things to check out. I loved how we were able to take all the different forms of transit and see so many different things that you wouldn’t normally, if you were exploring on your own.
THE REAL DEAL
Our tour with Kevin was GREAT! He is a fabulous tour guide & shared all sorts of fun facts & hidden SF favorites. He didn’t rush us, but made sure the tour ran smoothly. His personality was extremely engaging & made the group feel like old friends. The tour was strategically designed to cover maximum highlights & built in breaks when we took public transit. This tour could not be any better!
BEST TOUR OF OUR USA TRIP
Tour is amazing. Our guide, Kevin, was knowledgeable, friendly, courteous & fun. He knows the insider tricks to get the best out of SF – from hidden stairwells, to lost tunnels, to the best street art. Also free fortune cookies :-). We got to ride historic cable cars, MUNI & BART. We got amazing views of the bay, hills, Golden Gate Bridge & many must-see sights, from unique vantage points beyond the reach of a bus tour. This tour is really good value – all transport is included.
Golden Gate Park to the Haight Tour
$45 / pp
Free / child (0-11 y.o.)
An easy walking distance
10am – 1pm (3 hours)
Seeing SF is a walk in the park
We have some of the best urban parks in the U.S. here in San Francisco, including a World Class park far larger than Central Park in New York. We'll show you round this S.F. gem, then we'll walk you over to historic Haight-Ashbury, so you can learn about and experience this important historic neighborhood. You can also combine this tour with our Castro to the Mission Tour, by booking them both for the same day.
Start your morning Golden Gate Park to the Haight tour by learning about the Japanese Gardens and De Young Museum (including checking the great views from its tower, when open), then visit some memorable hidden locations and cool sculptures known only to San Franciscans. After that we take you to famous Haight-Ashbury, a key location in the 1960's Hippie/anti-Vietnam War Movement. You'll pass by the residences of Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead and the infamous Charles Manson. You'll also see the notorious Psychedelic Shop (now a pizza restaurant), where LSD was openly sold when that was legal (not any more!). We finish your Golden Gate Park to the Haight tour right in the heart of the neighborhood - which is the perfect place to get some lunch.
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. If we can squeeze you in we’ll let you know.
