We had a great time with Discover Walks during the Chinatown tour during our recent stay in San Francisco. I especially enjoyed the fact that we got to go inside so many local establishments, from traditional Chinese groceries to a fortune cookie factory. We walked...More

Madeline was our guide on both tours. She is highly engaging and knowledgeable. She showed us places on both tours that few tourists would ever get to see. I highly recommend Discover walking tours.

We did both the North Beach and Fishermans Wharf Tour on one day, North Beach is the better one of the two I thought, since not such an over-touristed place of town. Our guide Maddie was great, explaining a lot in great detail (as I'm...More

Several people gathered for the tour on Sunday morning and no tour guide showed up! Very disappointing to say the least.
