What you'll do

Now into the heart of the city! Explore the nooks and crannies of North Beach (aka "Little Italy") and Chinatown with your knowledgeable host. Walk through SF's downtown district and learn about it's role in the modern era of tech.

My name is Dara and I'm a San Franciscan, born and raised. Growing up in this world class city has been a privilege and I've discovered all the greatest spots that I'm excited to share with you! Combining my background in tourism with my passion for this city has allowed me to curate several walking tours with the most interesting routes and stories. A far cry from the hop-on hop-off type tour, walking around with a native like myself will give you a truly authentic experience that is unparalleled . My knowledge is vast and I specialize in both the larger tourist attractions, as well as lesser known neighborhoods to really give my guests a true snapshot of what this city has to offer. Join me and come to love SF as much as I do!

Chet was a fantastic guide of the city. We spent six hours together and covered so much ground in that time. The tour was informative and lots of fun, and Chet was very personable.

Dara was very knowledgeable about the city. She introduced us to a lot of sights and history, and also familiarized us with the public transportation system

Chett was an amazing tour guide, he was genuinely concerned about us, very friendly and had a lot to storytell about the city itself. Highly recommeneded but not for the faint of heart. Intense walking for 3 hours and the other half more casually. Would do it again!
