Talented tour leaders from San Francisco City Guides entertain locals and visitors alike with historically and physically invigorating tours that focus on the architecture, history, legends, and lore of San Francisco. With tours running year round, urban explorers can lace up walking shoes with adventures such as North Beach By Night, a trip through the city's Little Italy and one of the birthplaces of beatnik culture. Or explore what was once dairy lands and dirt roads in Castro: Tales of the Village, an exploration of one of the most vibrant and cohesive communities in the city. With more than 55 different walks offered each month, history buffs of all interests will find an ambulatory love connection. Click here for the tour schedule. Tours last between 90 minutes and two hours.

Although City Guides tours are free of charge, this membership offer supports this lauded non-profit foundation and has additional perks such as tour schedule updates, a subscription to the quarterly newsletter Guidelines, and invitations to exclusive excursions, special events, and the annual December holiday party, a refreshingly self-guided event.

San Francisco City Guides

The volunteer guides at San Francisco City Guides don't just hit mandated talking points—instead, they each create their walking tours from scratch, highlighting their favorite corners of the city in the process. They currently host more than 70 unique tours for month, some of which explore the historic Castro district, while others ramble through Golden Gate Park or San Francisco City Hall. Regardless of the area, the guides focus on history and architecture rather than the length of the sidewalk cracks, a focus that has kept the tours popular since 1978.
