My husband had a week long conference in San Francisco that I decided to tag along with. While he was in a long conference I thought I would check this tour out but unfortunately it was canceled due to no one showing up, I'm sure due to the weather (rainy). So, I dragged my husband kicking and screaming to the tour the following day and he LOVED it! Jay is great and is full of history of the city. It was a quick 2 hours and you learn a lot about the city of San Francisco. Highly recommend!

our guide, marilyn Straka, made this experience so nice. She was so personable,and knowlegable. Having only 5 people helped, along with good weather.
Marilyn covered the history, restoration, and cultural aspects of the neighborhood. Visiting the Queen Ann B&B was delightful! It was an unexpected pleasure to walk through so much of the Pacific Hts neighboorhood and the mansion district. Overall, the tour exceeded our expectations and I would recommend it to anyone.

we did the victorian walk on a saturday and it was very informative. the guide meets you in union square - easy to get to by cable car or bus - the guide puts you on the bus (included in cost of tour) to take you to pac heights. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the victorians, the areas we walked in and the real estate market. There was not too much general history of the city, other than talk of the great earthquake/fire. The walk was not strenuous and you end near Union St - which is a great neighborhood of shops and restaurants.

We took in-laws on this walk and had a great time of it. Make sure you bring some water/snacks and good walking shoes and be prepared to get your architectural nerd on.
