What people are saying about Pier 39

Kathy met us at our hotel and designed a great tour for us that familiarized us with parts of San Francisco that we were interested in seeing. She was engaging, upbeat, educated and really knows the city. She made us feel welcome and she offered us excellent information and tips for the rest of our stay. We highly recommend a tour like this early in one's trip to a new city to get a basic lay of the area.
