Hidden Stairways of San Francisco

San Francisco, United States

Experience hosted by Greg

2 hours, Hosted in English
Magical setting
Guests love where this takes place.

What you'll do

The perfect experience for everyone! Great for families, friends and ideal for company off-sites/team building. This breathtaking 2 mile walking tour of San Francisco's hidden stairways is the #1 rated Airbnb Experience in the Bay Area, loved by both locals and tourists alike.

See gorgeous mosaic tiled steps and hear the stories behind them, then take in stunning 360° views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park and downtown San Francisco. You'll also discover beautiful neighborhoods and gardens that many locals are not aware of and that tourists rarely see.
Oh, and you might even go home with a succulent!
I'll provide commentary, context and some history along the way.

Generally SF is dry May-October. There can be fog in the summertime, mostly in the morning. Temps rarely above 70F (21C) or below 50F (10C). Rain may cancel.

Guests should be reasonably fit. Though we don't cover many miles, some of the terrain is steep. It will be necessary to carry small children as strollers are not suitable. If you bring a guest that’s under 18, it’s your responsibility to make sure the activities they participate in are age-appropriate.

I'm a native Irishman but a 20 year resident of San Francisco who adores my adopted city and loves showing it off to locals and tourists alike.

A former marathon runner, I know the city's best views but now prefer a more moderate hike on gorgeous stairs! This walk is done at a leisurely pace & suitable for most people.

My dog and I had a great morning while in this magical tour. the panoramic views of SFO are a must and a bit of history was extra special. The neighborhood plants and THE STAIRS obviously made this tour a great experience and I'm a local!!! don't skip. Greg+++

Thanks so much Greg! My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The tour was great for both a local and an out of towner. The up-close view of the mosaics and the panoramic view of the entire city were breathtaking! We loved the local insight too!

Greg is awesome! He is very personable and genuine! He cares about those who take his tour and is prepared with water and sunscreen for anyone who needs it. He knows a great deal about the area as well as the stairs! Not to mention he is a GREAT photographer! I could not have enjoyed my time more! Definitely a must do in the area!
