The guides of City by the Bay Tours lead guests on jaunts around the San Francisco Bay area, filling them with knowledge of the city’s complex local history and culture. Once everyone is aboard the brand-new cozy 25-passenger mini-bus, tours kick off in Fisherman’s Wharf, where guides enumerate the history of Pier 39 and gossip about the latest breakups among the sea lion population. At North Beach, tour-takers gain perspective on the vibrant hustle and bustle of Chinatown, Joe DiMaggio’s birthplace in Martinez, California, and where Joe and Marilyn Monroe took their wedding photos. As voyagers reach Union Square, they get to see the filming locations of popular films and television shows, including the Civic Center arena from Pretty Woman. In the Haight-Ashbury district, sightseers absorb info and finger-snapping techniques from the beat generation, and later on, guides discuss the Bay-influenced careers of George Lucas and Otis Redding. Drivers are eager to man passengers’ cameras for them, leaving everyone free to pose for keepsake photos or stand on each other’s shoulders as the bus crosses the Golden Gate Bridge before stopping in Fort Baker.
