5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

our guide, marilyn Straka, made this experience so nice. She was so personable,and knowlegable. Having only 5 people helped, along with good weather.
Marilyn covered the history, restoration, and cultural aspects of the neighborhood. Visiting the Queen Ann B&B was delightful! It was an unexpected pleasure to walk through so much of the Pacific Hts neighboorhood and the mansion district. Overall, the tour exceeded our expectations and I would recommend it to anyone.

“Good views and a little history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

we did the victorian walk on a saturday and it was very informative. the guide meets you in union square - easy to get to by cable car or bus - the guide puts you on the bus (included in cost of tour) to take you to pac heights. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the victorians, the areas we walked in and the real estate market. There was not too much general history of the city, other than talk of the great earthquake/fire. The walk was not strenuous and you end near Union St - which is a great neighborhood of shops and restaurants.

We took in-laws on this walk and had a great time of it. Make sure you bring some water/snacks and good walking shoes and be prepared to get your architectural nerd on.

I participated in Isaac Wigley's Victorian walking tour, he is quite knowledgeable, very personable, warm personality, thoroughly enjoyed the walk and learning about the different styles of Victorians.
