On this walking tour of San Francisco you'll be lied to by an award winning tour guide who's been walking for almost 50 years - Often with little help from others. 
Learn the strange stories you won't hear from the "normal" tours of San Francisco on this humorous, small group excursion.  Gain an insider's perspective on the quirky tales of gold-rush era Union Square, grab a cup of tea in Chinatown or stop in for a pint at an Irish pub.
Hear your local guide, blogger, writer and sometimes personal antagonist share colorful anecdotes and the occasional tall tale on this lively and wholly entertaining exploration of the heart of San Francisco.
All tours include bottled water, candy, a souvenir drawstring back pack and access to a library of pictures on your own mobile device.

San Francisco probably packs more strange stories into 170+ years of history than any other city in America.  With influences stretching from early Spanish Missionaries and Mexican fisherman to Irish, Italian, and Chinese immigrants during the Gold Rush, the City by the Bay is rife with stories of new beginnings, failed businesses, and bizarre betrayals.  Pirates, parrots, and pre-civil-war trading vessels shared harbors with Australian outlaws, Chinese laborers, and Mormon Elders.  After WW2, it became a haven for beat poets escaping New York, conservationist looking to build political movements, and long-haired hippies escaping “The Man”. 

This 3-part walking tour connects you to a local guide and writer who has his own special perspective on San Francisco – one that changes often!  Hear his own take on 19th century brothels, the best places for Chinese dim sum, and why certain Catholic churches survived the earthquake of 1906.  The tour has three different legs – a Downtown leg in the morning, a Chinatown tour in the afternoon, and a third part that finishes at Yerba Buena (and Little Italy) right before dinner.  Select a specific leg or combine different segments to create your own fun-filled day meandering through the city streets. 

The tour is family-friendly and filled with local perspectives, insider tips, and recommendations for all the best places to grab a bite to eat or something to drink when you are finished.
