It was a marvelous experience. Seeing San Francisco from a very different viewpoint or better points. Our guide was excellent, very accommodating. Only do the hike if you are in decent shape. It is a hike lots of step stairs and hilly areas, but well worth it.

Fabulous tour and guide. Alex designed a very interesting route and Val executed it with so much information and charm. We got to see hidden neighborhoods, climb multiple stair passages, wander in eucalyptus forests and have amazing vistas. Highly recommended.

My family and I were lucky to have Dani, such a lovely and friendly tour guide! I would recommend this hike to anyone visiting SF. It is the best way to see the city's culture, history, unique hills, neighborhoods, and changing weather temps. Wearing comfortable sneakers or hiking shoes is definitely rrecommended, since you'll be taking on steep sidewalks and wooded areas. Also, dress in layers. One minute it's warm and sunny, the next like on top of Twin Peaks, it is very windy, misty, and cool. Our way back from Sutro Tower was was muddy and slippery at times, so be prepared in case that happens. Dani is a delightful conversationalist, and knowledgeable in the history of the city. She even had snacks for us when we reached the top of Twin Peaks. This is a very energetic, interesting, and breathtaking tour. Hills and Hidden Gems, indeed!!

This tour was great! Alex, was amazing full of fun facts and an amazing passion for the city. She is very welcoming, informative and greatly prepared. I really enjoyed how she felt out the pace of the group and allowed us time to catch our breath when ascending each staircase or high hills. She was prepared with snacks for the midway of the hike. The hike itself was well planned with plenty of historical and scenic views and very worth every penny!

This was a great tour taking you into places, up stairs, and onto the tops of hills with spectacular views over the city - places I wouldn't have seen as a visiting tourist. Val was full of information about the area and was an engaging and fun guide to have for three hours! Highly recommended

Alex was a great tour guide! AND she just wrote a book on these hikes, so she knows the ins and outs of San Fran from another view besides a tourist attraction. Amazing views and photos of the hidden areas around the city we never would have known about. Just great!

This trip was very good and very physical and I had been walking quite a bit. I'm sorry I forgot to tip my guide in my haste to get a cab at the end of my trip. I called Alex and told her I could tip on my credit card but got no response. Anyway she was great and I liked the tour a lot.

I can't get over how much fun I had on this tour. I visit San Francisco about twice a year and love doing all the touristy stuff, but this tour was different, it made me feel like a total insider. The view from Twin Peaks was amazing, but my absolute favorite part was walking through the eucalyptus forest. I've already recommend this tour to friends and family and I extend the same recommendation to anyone considering to book this tour. A special thanks to our guide (sorry I forgot your name) for making this such a great experience!

This was a very fun and very active hike. Alex was very knowledgeable and friendly and made this feel more like visiting with a friend than being led around by a stranger. The variety of environments we explored was great and the views were just amazing. I booked this trip for my first visit to San Francisco so everything I saw was new to me but, impressively, the two local friends I took with me likewise saw things they didn't even know existed. Amazing time! I would recommend this to anyone with a little stamina, a taste for adventure and a desire to see (and photograph) sights and perspectives otherwise completely unavailable. I'm so glad I did this!
