We were visiting San Francisco for a few days and wanted to see as much as we could. We did the famous 6 hour tour of the city, Sausalito, and Muir Woods and it was amazing! Our tour guide Layla was FULL of great information, history, and insider tips from places to eat to must see sites. This is a... More

My wife and I had a great tour. It was a stormy day in the Bay area, which I actually think enhanced the experience. Marlin is awesome , simply put. His personality along with his knowledge really made for a perfect outing. He is the perfect guide to have when encountering a major city for the first time, a definite... More

Dylan's tour of San Francisco was absolutely perfect. We covered everything you could possibly want to see and take pictures of (and the pictures were amazing). Although the tour only last 5 hours, I felt as if I had spent several days touring the city. Our tour guide Adam simply could not have done a better job. Not only was... More

We had a great time on this tour. The guide was exceptional. I have been to San Francisco many times and I still saw things I had never seen and learned about places I thought I already knew. He made sure we all stayed together, used hand signals to make sure everyone knew when to go and when to stop.... More

The tour of San Francisco (Dylan's Famous Tour) was one of the best city tours that my friend and I have ever taken. Rolando, the tour guide, was welcoming and well informed and thoughtful. We had great value for the money spent and will book another tour with Dylan's when we are back in San Francisco. I recommend this company... More

Loved the tour. Got a bit cold in the morning. WEAR GLOVES! Our guide was very excited about the city and faultless. The bikes were great and handled the many hills brilliantly. If you have the time ( and the $80) do nothing but this tour! Baskets on bikes so you can ditch the jackets in the afternoon. You see... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
