After you've seen the tourist attractions, come explore the real city. Put down the guidebook, and see the city as a local.
At Explore SF our top goal is to show our guests the same city that we would show our friends and family. All of our tours are above and beyond regular sightseeing:
Enjoy shopping and lunch in Japantown followed by a visit to a spa.
Instead of pointing at a Buddhist Temple in Chinatown, we take part in the ceremony!
On our Chinatown Food Tours, we eat at places where no English is spoken, but don't worry, your guide speaks Cantonese.
In North Beach we don't just taste Cannoli, we make our own! While we are in the Mission, let's tour the most subversive landmarks of this left of center district, or take The Mission Ghost Tour.
Everyone loves a burrito so let's go to where it was invented.
Our food tours are led by prominent SF foodies who want to share their passion with you. The tours are tailored to each group of guests and are never the same twice.
Our bar tours are led by drunks and scoundrels, and rightfully so.
SF Scenic Running Tours take you on the most beautiful urban runs in the world. Run along cliffs overlooking the ocean, through the Presidio, past giant works of art, or across the Golden Gate Bridge.
Attend church on Sunday to hear one of the best Gospel Choirs anywhere!
New Scooter tours use the newest SF craze the all electric Scoot!
Our history tours are led by people so versed in SF history that you'll think they must have been there.
Here's a concept: Our neighborhood tours are led by people who actually live in the neighborhood. Imagine that...
We'll take you to the world's largest porn studio, an urban parrot safari, Nob Hill, Land's End, Mission Dolores, a volcanic black sand beach, a secret tunnel in the Barbary Coast, or an architectural tour downtown to explore Art Deco secrets.
Alcatraz on your mind? During the peak months we have tickets when many others are sold out!
And because walking is not always an option for some guests, we've chosen the best Hop-On Hop-Off bus company and the best Bay Cruises around for you to enjoy. See Muir Woods, Monterey, Napa, or Yosemite.
And lastly, if you want to see everything in San Francisco in one day, we have the ultimate tour for you, Ultimate SF
This city has so much more, come once, come often, leave happy, explore...
