After you've seen the tourist attractions, come explore San Francisco with us and see the city as a local. Be at the table for a Pop Up restaurant. Learn the back alleys of Chinatown. How did North Beach save free speech? Experience a wine tour without leaving the city, relax at a Korean day spa in Japantown. Shop boutiques in Pacific Heights near billionaire row or the thrift shops at Church and Market. As flocks of wild parrots fly overhead, have a drink where Jack Kerouac once sat. Visit a Buddhist monastery, and then a chocolate factory. Take a cupcake class in a Mexican Bakery. Find the locations from your favorite Hitchcock film. Buy home made pieces of pie sold on a street corner. Try a burrito at the taqueria that invented it. Is Burmese or Greek the new Tapas? Picnic in Dolores Park then spend the afternoon on Haight Street. So, where is the Grateful Dead house? And lastly, race down the Seward Slides in the Castro, before watching the fog roll in over Twin Peaks...
After you've seen the tourist attractions Explore San Francisco with us! Noticing a disconnect between the San Francisco that tourists see and the city that one would show to their own family and friends, the idea to show visitors a more authentic San Francisco was born.

Put down the guidebook and come explore with us and let's explore the city, the real city. Don't settle for a prepackaged and scripted tour put on by a national tour company, staffed by undepaid and under-enthused guides. Exploring a new city should be fun! All of our tours offer something above and beyond regular sightseeing. Be it a visit to a spa, shopping, neighborhood history and cultural tours, food tours, running tours, architecture tours, wine tours, trying a pop-up restaurant, biking across the Golden Gate, attending a book reading, or observing wild parrots, this is not to be missed...

Happy to show you the city's rich and colorful history, the most fascinating neighborhoods or help you discover the best food, shopping and entertainment venues. You will be surprised at just how unique San Francisco is, but first you have to get away from Pier 39. We can help you with that and you’ll be happy we did. You will leave knowing just how much the real San Francisco has to offer because you experienced it for yourself. After
