The Best of San Francisco: Private Half-Day Walking Tour
Dating back to 1776 and considered by many to be the USA’s most beautiful city, San Francisco - a.k.a. The City by the Bay - is a vibrant mix of exotic cultures, and is renowned worldwide for its liberal free-thinking ideals.
San Francisco’s strong historical bonds with Spanish America and Mexico are evident all over the city and reflected in its Hispanic population, vibrant arts, music, and festival scene.

On your private half-day tour, you will:

  • Learn the history of its famous neighbourhoods, including downtown, the Financial District, Nob Hill, Chinatown, and Little Italy;
  • Explore Union Square, San Francisco's bustling shopping area;
  • Immerse yourself in the customs, cuisine, and curiosities of Chinatown;
  • Take a cable car to the top of Nob Hill for spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline;
  • Venture through North Beach to absorb the community’s Italian heritage;
  • Enjoy striking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Angel Island from atmospheric Fisherman's Wharf – and glimpse the basking seals!

On this private half-day tour of the best of San Francisco, you will learn about the city’s foundation in the 18th century, when Spanish colonists settled the area during the gold-rush fever, to the city in the modern era, famous for its political activism and social inclusivity the world over.

See first-hand San Francisco’s colourful mix of quaint buildings and modern architecture in a stunning ocean-facing city.

Learn about San Francisco's long-standing progressive stance on activism: the city is credited with trailblazing the “Flower Power” peace movement, and powering the gay rights movement as one of the largest and most prominent LGBT communities in the world.

You will explore this fascinating urban landscape, set on the northern tip of a peninsula, shaped by glaciers, earthquakes and the Pacific’s rolling waves. Set on San Francisco's picturesque steep slopes, enjoy a stunning skyline across streets crisscrossed by streetcars, yellow taxis and jogging trails. Wander through some world-class shopping in Union Square, where big-name brands and local stores nestle amongst chic boutiques.

Enjoy a historic cable car ride from one part of the city, over Nob Hill to the waterfront. At beautiful North Beach, known colloquially as Little Italy, soak up the ambience of the city’s lively historic Italian-American community.

Lastly, Fisherman’s Wharf, lined with seafood cafes, is home to basking sea lions, jugglers and mime artists and enjoys striking views across the Golden Gate Bridge, the infamous island prison on the sea, Alcatraz, and Angel Island.

The Vibrant Castro & Mission District: Private Half-Day Tour
San Francisco’s pioneering activists and counter-cultural forces have powered societal change for over five decades, shaping the modern city and modern America. Walk around the Castro and Mission Districts, famous for the anti-war protests of 1967, Harvey Milk’s civil rights campaign of the 1970s, and more recent protests against gentrification in one of the most attractive and exciting cities in the United States.

On your private guided tour, you will:

  • See Harvey Milk Plaza and the LGBTQ protest grounds, the Pink Triangle Memorial, and the Rainbow Honor Walk;
  • Enjoy sweeping downtown views from leafy Dolores Park;
  • Admire the bold political murals and urban artworks in Clarion Alley;
  • See the Old Spanish Mission, the Bay Area’s most historic building with tickets included;
  • Enjoy the stunning city views from Dolores Park;
  • Stroll the hottest destination eateries, cafés, and food joints on Valencia Street;
  • Finish your tour on Valencia Street, lined with shops, cafés, and food joints.

This Private Tour of Castro and Mission will introduce you to the city’s hippest neighbourhoods, notable for their LGBTQ community and cool, artsy vibe. In the Castro, learn about the extraordinary accomplishments of SF residents in halting demolition, stopping four-lane freeways and affecting positive change in feminism, peace, and LGBTQ rights. The neighbourhood’s many spirited LGBTQ bars range from brewpubs and bustling dives to ritzy drag shows.

You will hear how, today, America has elected more than 500 LGBTQ politicians into public office - from city council members, mayors and members of Congress to state legislators and governors - yet, 40 years ago, the tally was just a handful of gay men and lesbians, of which Harvey Milk was one. On the Private Tour of Castro and Mission, explore Milk’s Ground Zero and immerse yourself in the legacy of California’s first openly gay elected official - and the role Castro played.

In the Mission District, you will venture down Clarion Alley and see the fabulous urban graffiti and satirical political street art as you stroll in the footsteps of feminists, Latinos, artists and activists who continue to fight for the soul of San Francisco. Pop into the Mission Dolores to see the oldest building in San Francisco, along with shrubbery and a garden reflective of the mission in the early 1790s.

With a buzzing cultural mix and sizzling street food, Mission is famous for its galleries, neon-lit clubs and basement bars and is blessed with the leafy greenery of picturesque Dolores Park.

Muir Woods & Sausalito: Private Day Trip from San Francisco
Nothing prepares you for the tranquil hush and serenity of these magnificent old-growth woodlands, stretching deep and dark along the Pacific Coast with mesmerizing views of Muir Woods.

On your private day trip to Muir Woods and Sausalito, you will:

  • Enjoy hotel pick-up by your private driver and cross the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge;
  • Soak up spectacular views across the Bridge, the Bay, and the city skyline;
  • Explore the raw serenity of the 300ft old-growth soaring redwoods at Muir Woods on a self-guided tour;
  • Discover the National Monument’s deep green glades and leafy winding trails;
  • Enjoy free time at the pretty seaside town of Sausalito, north of the Golden Gate Bridge;
  • Browse the houseboat enclaves built by artistic squatters after WWII;
  • Enjoy hotel drop-off at your hotel or somewhere in the city centre of your choosing.

Resplendent 300ft redwood trees soar skyward in atmospheric Muir Woods where shady, peaceful glades evoke the prehistoric origins of this magnificent species.

Dedicated to the father of America’s national parks in 1908, beautiful Muir Woods rises up from a fern-clad valley rich in wildlife, part of a National Monument within California’s Golden Gate National Recreation Area, to the north of San Francisco.

On this Private Excursion to Muir Woods and Sausalito, learn about the foundation of one of our first and most loved US National Monuments, and walk a thriving old-growth Coastal Redwood forest. Follow leafy winding trails that inspired John Muir’s strong voice for the preservation of America's most special places.

Along the way, cross the Golden Gate Bridge and enjoy vistas of the San Francisco skyline, Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. After returning via a scenic mountain road, enjoy a visit to the charming and upscale waterfront hamlet Sausalito for lunch, with reservations made in advance for you.

Please note: This is a day trip including a private driver who is not allowed to enter the Park with you due to local regulations. You will be exploring Muir Woods Park and Sausalito with your group on a self-guided tour

San Francisco Small Group Customizable Tour
I craft one four-hour adventure each morning just for the small group and unique goings on in the City that day. The itinerary is open - we will always stop at San Francisco’s classic landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and Twin Peaks and typically roll through neighborhoods like North Beach, Pacific Heights, Haight-Ashbury, Castro, and the Embarcadero. We will also leave big buses behind and may explore street-art alleys in the Mission, mosaic stairways in the Sunset, the laid-back vibe of the Presidio, our Beaux-Arts City Hall, famous “Painted Ladies” at Alamo Square, or go down the real crookedest street in San Francisco (not Lombard). It all depends on what's best just that day. It's a long morning, so mid way through we will stop at a local market where the group can get a quick lunch and do some local people watching. We will finish in the Fisherman's Wharf area in the early afternoon. If your afternoon plans take you elsewhere, we can find a mutually convenient end point.
