North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

$85/hr. Reed will do a great job tailoring your tour to whatever budget you allow. We used him twice in Nov 2017; he was awesome and we will use him again if we get back to San Francisco.
