Great bike ride and saw and heard about stuff I never knew, and I have been an SF and Bay Area resident and history teacher for over 40 years. These tours also gather a wonderful audience who have a lot to share and the leaders are very open to that, like all good teachers!

Most recently had a wonderful and informative walk/talk with Shaping San Francisco in the Golden Gate Heights neighborhood, and along famous mosaic stairways to Grandview Peak. Part of their Urban Forum , this walk featured the urban historian Chris Carlson answering questions about the history and geography of the neighborhood, a naturalist with Nature in the City explaining the habitat restoration work being done up there to preserve the green hairstreak butterfly. It was a friendly, easy and illuminating few hours with compatible souls.

Most recently, I took the walking tour of Bernal Heights, but I’ve also done walks covering South of Market and Telegraph Hill. All were excellent. Lisa and Chris are knowledgeable and personable guides with deep historical knowledge of San Francisco. The Bernal Heights walk was a vigorous one that began at the Bernal Cut and headed up and down Bernal Hill, covering all sides. I’ve been there dozens of times, but had never used the path that Lisa used to get us to the top. Throughout the tour, I was prompted to notice things I might otherwise have walked past, with special attention to former earthquake shacks. It was an entertaining and educational afternoon, and I look forward to more walks and boat rides with Lisa and Chris.

Shaping SF history bay cruise gives a fresh angle on SF—yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Super knowledgeable narration as we rode along the “shoreline” (and learned what that even means). Great boat w lots of space inside and out. You will be surprised to see what’s right there — tho you never saw it before. Five stars!
