What you'll do

What’s it REALLY like to live in San Francisco? How do San Franciscans dine, shop, exercise, socialize and relax? This 3-hour urban adventure takes you beyond the tourist traps and hotels to the vibrant Cow Hollow and Pacific Heights neighborhoods for the “local” experience you won’t find in a travel guide. Take in remarkable vistas while traversing some of The City’s most beautiful Victorians, mansions, restaurants & boutiques. Visit an artisanal epicurean store, coffee cafes, a French bakery or gelato shop, and maybe have a beer at “the smallest pub in San Francisco”. Marvel at the architecture of turn-of-the-century mansions, an 8-sided house, Victorian “tract” homes, a Beaux-Arts style library, and a Hindu temple. Feel the tranquility of lovingly manicured City parks. Then, learn to navigate those crazy hills by hopping on a local bus to tony Fillmore Street at the top of Pacific Heights. Gaze upon unparalleled views that make you realize why San Francisco is called The City by the Bay.

Kathy

Inspired by a visitor at San Francisco’s Union Square who questioned, “How can anyone live where it’s so crowded and so noisy?”, this Experience is the answer. Welcome to the neighborhoods! Living in San Francisco for over 28 years, I love nothing more than sharing the sights, sounds and secrets of The City. Our temperate Mediterranean climate and evocative fog combine to enhance indoor-outdoor living and a lifestyle seldom experienced. Gain a true appreciation for this rich and unique blend of hi-tech and old world goodness called San Francisco. I want you to love The City as much as I do! I am a Board Member of the San Francisco Tour Guide Guild; Certification from and volunteer Ambassador with the San Francisco Travel Association; and a Masters Degree from a previous life.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 12 and up can attend. Out of consideration for other guests as well as local establishments, pets cannot be accommodated. Thank you for your understanding.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Requires the ability to walk at least 3 miles on pavement, up & down stairs, ramps and hills. Leisurely paced & many opportunities for food, drink and photos. Street parking difficult; public transportation or ride-sharing (Uber/Lyft) highly recommended. No pets, please. We'll have a great time!
