From the foggy mornings through the sun-drenched dusks, the City by the Bay unveils natural beauty, man-made marvels, and bohemian rhapsodies on every block. And while there's joy in gazing at the Golden City from the window of a trolley, airplane, tugboat, or hot-air balloon, those barriers of distance, glass, and gas betray the tactile experience of exploring San Francisco the way it was meant to be traversed: on foot.
The tour guides of Walk SF tours know their city head-to-toe, and introduce folks to a wonderland that continually ranks amongst the top walkable cities in America. In treks such as The Gold Rush Drinking Tour, the Chinatown and North Beach Tasting Tour, and a trip tracing The Beats in San Francisco, the enthusiastic chaperones follow history's footsteps, engaging the senses and imagination at every turn. Those who choose The Gold Rush Drinking Tour can enjoy samples of gourmet cocktails from SF's oldest saloons as they scope out the former scallywag hangouts and famous homes of ill repute from the Barbary Coast days. During the Chinatown and North Beach Tasting Tour, guests sample delights such as authentic Dim Sum while listening to the story of Chinese and Italian immigration. The Beats in San Francisco tour engages patrons with stories of Neal Cassady, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg while making stops at the authors' former stomping grounds.
