A very informative and fun tour of a great part of San Francisco finding out things about the city that we would otherwise not have known. Don, our guide, was great fun and very knowledgeable and was able to adapt his tour to accommodate some requirements of other members of the group. Some great recommendations for places to eat
Our walking tour was great. Don is a fabulous guide. Don really knows the city and is willing to go the extra mile if you truly want to. Having the tour in the morning was exceptional because crowds hadn't started to really form yet. This was a highlight of our trip. Thanks!

Amazing! Walking tour was great with very knowledgeable guide, Bridgette. Cable cars are a must as is Alcatraz! Great time on this tour!
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
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.
The tour guide was great! Knew the history very well and was very friendly.
Made you feel at home away from home.
Very good tour guide. Gave alot of history and details of the city. would do it again.
We had fun with uor tour guide. She answered our questions and was very knowledgeable of San Francisco. Although we walked a lot, still we had fun. We would likely do it again! Thanks!
It was awesome! We had the best tour guide, she was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. Would do it again or make sure to tell my friends, if they ever go to San Francisco to take the tour. Well worth the money.
Don was an excellent host providing exceptional knowledge of the area. What a great city. I was very dissappointed that the cable car ride was ONLY 1 way and that you had to pay another 7.00 to get back. We were looking forward to this ride and because of this did not take it.
Tour guide, thankfully had a sense of humor and was very knowledgeable in her surroundings.
It's a lot of walking but otherwise clear. You need to explain better were the meeting point is
This was our second day in San Francisco. As we were the only couple,Tony was able to personalise the trip to ensure that we were able to visit places we had not already been to. Especially enjoyed the walk round the wharf area and through the gardens from Coit Tower. Saw places that we would not have found without local knowledge.
We booked this tour in August. All in all I think it is a very good deal. The walking tour was informative and the guide friendly. The tour lasted almost 3 hours. We purchased the Alcatraz option which is a must see. Truly a unique experience. Others who reviewed this tour mentioned the cable car tickets were only good on the date received. That was not the case for us. Our tickets were good anytime. One thing to note is that the cable cars are a tourist attraction so the lines at the beginning/end of the routes are very long (hour plus) and the cars are packed so you may wait a long time at a mid-point stop for a car with open spots. I would suggest taking the car after 7pm when the lines die down. Also the tickets are for a one way trip with no transfers so pay attention to where you get on or you might get a very short ride.
We missed our walking tour but did th cable car ride which my grandchildren totally enjoyed.
