Not the usual sightseeing tours but rather diverse urban journeys led by a very experienced, knowledgeable guide who’s been leading tours since 1989. Tours feature the beauty and uniqueness that is San Francisco through its picturesque cityscapes and its public art, parks and gardens, an array of architectural styles, local landmarks, film locations, movie theatres, historical streetcars, cable cars and much more. Your guide, Monika, leads visitors, residents and natives alike on fun and insightful urban excursions through the streets of San Francisco. Her presentations are engaging, comprehensive, witty and historically accurate.

Thank you, Barbara, for your comments about the tour. I'm glad you enjoyed it and only wish we had had more sun and less fog during the tour. However, as you know, that's how the weather can often be in July along the Pacific coast.
