Wes of Wild SF is funny, engaging, entertaining and interesting all at the same time. Loved his anecdotes and insights (had never heard of the Diggers before), how he uses the iconic music of the time to really send you back in time. This walking tour of Haight-Ashbury is really special during San Francisco’s 50th anniversary of the Summer of... More

Wes led us on both the Downtown and Haight Ashbury tours. He was really fun and helpful, answering all sorts of questions and told some great stories about each place we visited on the tours. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get to know SF in an interesting and active way. Thanks Wes!

Wes changed my life for the better! In all seriousness though, the tour was great fun and incredibly informative. Learned a lot about Haight-Ashbury and its hippie history. Absolutely recommended!

Did the Chinatowns Hidden Alley's tour and the Ghost/Crime tours. Both had amazing and informative guides. Tip: If going on the night tour dress appropriately. We went in Aug. and needed to buy hats and gloves due to the cold.

He knows about the history of this place as most of the guides have no clue. You will not get this useful information without reading two - three books. I enjoyed because, in the end, I think I know something about San Francisco. Recommend it.
