What You Can Expect
Continue walking to North Beach, sometimes known as Little Italy, where your guide will lead you past Washington Square Park and Saints Peter and Paul Church. See the neighborhood’s many Italian restaurants and cafes, and then follow your guide to some secret alleys and staircases that many visitors miss. Climb up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower, where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city and bay, and then walk down to Levi’s Plaza, where your tour ends and your guide will hand over your cable car ticket, which you can use to explore more of the area on your own.
Optional Alcatraz Upgrade:
If you choose the Alcatraz option when booking, you will visit Alcatraz in the morning and meet your walking tour guide at 2:30pm. . Enjoy more views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city skyline during the boat ride, and when you arrive on ‘The Rock,’ begin your independent tour of this former prison. Put on the provided headset for a self-guided audio tour of the cell block, which was once home to legendary criminals like Machine Gun Kelly and Al Capone. Listen to commentary from inmates and staff, and then take the ferry back to San Francisco when you’re ready to leave. They depart every 30 to 40 minutes.
What a great tour! I got confused about the meeting time and Kelsey called me when we were on our way and the tour group was already departing, she made sure I was able to meet Don, our guide on another street. We met with them no problem. Don, our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable, we had a great time walking along Fisherman's Wharf, getting to see the actual fishing side of it, along North Beach, up to Coit Tower and looking at the beautiful views of the Bay area.
I would totally recommend Don, he made the experience super enjoyable and educational. We also got lucky and got some sun for the first time in a couple of days when we were there!
We had an excellent walking tour of San Francisco with Don! He ran the tour with only 4 of us, when I had been previously told they couldn't run it with less than 5 people. He even spent 3 1/2 hours walking us all around the city, when he was only required to do 2 hours! His commentary was great: very informative and a lot of fun, interesting facts. He also stopped at an Italian focaccia place, and bought some, and shared it with us! We also got some cable car tickets, and tickets to visit Alcatraz. Alcatraz was so fascinating, and a lot of fun! Overall, an excellent tour thanks to Don and Viator!
Our guide was brilliant very informal walk gave us lots of choices about where we should go on the tour. It ended up being a three hours as opposed to two. He showed us loads of things we would have never found ourselves and also recommended lots of great eating places too.
long foot walk but really nice to see other tings of San Francisco
Super sympa !!!!' Balade agréable !!!!!
Just what we wanted...to learn the background of what we were seeing. Enjoyed the history and sites. Thanks.
What a fantastic start to our holiday in San Francisco. We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour, learnt a lot about the area and got a feel for the place on Day One of our trip. Don, our tour guide was excellent. Having lived all his life in this lovely city he was extremely knowledgeable and gave some great tips of places to eat and visit whilst we were in the area. Brilliant and highly recommended.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We learned tons of history on San Francisco. I would recommend having atour guide for part of your trip, then go out exploring on your own.
Don, our tour guide was fantastic!! We saw and learned so much about the San Francisco Bay area
Would absolutely do this tour again and highly recommend it. Well worth the time and money
This was a fun tour - we did it our 1st day in town to get a feel for the place. My mum and I were the only two people on the tour so that made it even better - a private tour at no extra cost. The guide knows and loves her city which is always so impotent and you get to see nooks and crannies that a normal tourist would never know about or simply walk past without knowing. Definitely a worthwhile tour if you want to ht the ground and get a feel for this great tangible city.
