This 8 hour walking tour is a fantastic way of getting a solid overview of San Francisco. I would recommend it to anyone at the start of their time in the city.
There were ten in our group (the most they will take in a group), of mixed nationalities. Our guide was Nessa, a local girl who clearly loves travel. Oh.... and it was 38 degrees Celsius the day we undertook the tour!
We started the journey on the oldest cable car, and travelled to Nob Hill. Thereafter we went on to see main locations and lesser known local areas, ending in China Town. We did a huge loop around San Francisco walking and using the metro, bus and tram. It gave us a great flavour of this interesting city, and we had some fantastic views of the city, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate.
Given the heat, using public transport was a relief. But even on a cooler day, by using the bus and trains it allows people to concentrate on the history and scenery rather than the exercise.
There were regular rest stops and Nessa gave us some great recommendations where to get food and drink. The tour company provided the travel passes.
Overall this is a well thought out route and well run organisation.
