What people are saying about Little Italy, San Francisco

I honestly enjoyed everything from the walking tour and lunch in Chinatown. As well as the walking tour in the North Beach area area where so much history was shared. Although my favorite was Chinatown due to my strong interest in Chinese history and culture, I feel I learned so much from the guide who was very knowledgeable. The best ending was the ferry ride to the golden gate bridge and Alcatraz with the wonderful view and wind blowing strongly. At the end, this was a great guided tour with an outstanding guide who was helpful and engaging and even took us to some extra places with additional time.

This tour is for folks who want to take the time and learn about the cities landmarks, history & are fine with walking all over the city. Ted.B was our guide and he did an excellent job.
