According to Sidewalk Food Tours, it's not the Golden Gate Bridge that ties the city together. It's the gooey cheese of its family pizzerias, the chocolate truffles of its dessert shops, and all of the region's other cuisines that help define the various neighborhoods—and their walking tours aim to introduce participants to those local flavors. In the Mission District, for instance, Sidewalk Food Tours' knowledgeable guides lead groups through tastings of tacos, falafel, and French-style bakery treats. In North Beach, they show how a large Italian American population resulted in restaurants that have endured more than 100 years. Along each route, the guides also impart facts about the neighborhood's history and culture, and reveal which buildings are built on a foundation of provolone cheese.
Fisherman's Wharf. Pier 39. The Golden Gate Bridge—these are some of San Francisco's most iconic landmarks and are all places that Explore San Francisco is not going to take you. That's because they're devoted not to showing the postcard version of their city, but to the lesser-known nooks and crannies not often approached by out-of-town visitors. That level of creativity has allowed them to design dozens of nuanced tours, including a cocktail crawl of Union Square and a running tour of Land's End for fitness buffs. Excursions are often led by locals who live in the neighborhood being toured, which gives them a familiarity with the area normally reserved only for those who have read the crossing guards' diaries.
The crew members at Electric Tour Company believe that San Francisco is the most fun town in the world, and that one of the best ways to explore its diverse streets are on unique vehicles such as the Segway. This led them to develop tours—for locals and tourists alike—which have attracted attention and praise from outlets such as Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and the Los Angeles Times. Atop the sturdy deck of an i2 Segway, groups wheel past famed San Francisco sights and explore historic neighborhoods.
Best Tours introduces locals and visitors to the best food, coffee, and desserts in cities across the world, like Paris, New York, and San Francisco.

During tours, which occur rain or shine, participants are encouraged to wear walking-appropriate attire such as comfortable shoes.
On Big Bus Tours' signature hop-on, hop-off double decker adventures, visitors and residents alike can take in all of the sights of the capital city.
