So many great sites - and the commentary was very informative and entertaining (although we could have done without SO MANY very political comments).

We went on the full day tour which included the city highlights, Sausalito and Muir Woods. Our driver and tour guide was a young trendy guy who lived in the city. He played relevant music tracks throughout the tour, and gave a humorous and interesting commentary. We visited places we would never have gone to on our own which gave... More

There's a lot to do in San Francisco, I had just moved here, this was a great way to see the city. Small group, saw the bridge and several neighborhoods, after living here a few months now I'd still recommend this tour for visitors and/or folks new to town.

My partner had never been to San Francisco before and as we were only here for a few days she booked this tour to see as much of the city sights as possible. We arrived early, and the tour guide arrived before the scheduled start time and immediately introduced himself to us. This appeared a good time of year to... More

My fiancé and I took the Original City Loop, 6 hour electric bike tour. Before booking we weren't sure if 6 hours would be too long but this turned out to be the perfect way to introduce ourselves to the city so that we could return at a later date and explore areas we spotted throughout the tour.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
