Here are the places we will explore:

Fisherman's Wharf

One of San Francisco's most popular destinations - from beautiful old shipyards, to Boudin's Bakery and the smell of fresh clam chowder, Fisherman's Wharf has it all.


Boasting the largest Chinatown in the United States, this 24-block mecca is bustling with energy, amazing food, and unique and colorful shops that give this area its charm.

North Beach

Voted as one of the USA's "ten great neighborhoods", North Beach is best known as the home of Little Italy. From delicious restaurants to authentic sidewalk cafes and bakeries, you will feel the charm of San Francisco as soon as you arrive.

City Hall

This beautiful Beaux-Arts monument epitomizes the high-minded American renaissance of the late 18th and early 19th century. The site of Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe's marriage in 1954.

Twin Peaks

Featuring a panoramic view of all of San Francisco, Twin Peaks offers ones of the best perspectives of the downtown skyline, surrounding hills and the vistas of the Bay. An absolute must-see!

Haight Ashbury

The origin of the hippie culture and the birth place of the "Summer of Love." From the stunning Painted Ladies to the homes of music's favorite 60's bands, this district started the counter-culture movement across the USA.

The Mission

Known for its prominent and colorful mural installations, delicious food, and vibrant art and music scene, The Mission embodies the culture of old and new San Francisco.

The Castro

One of the first gay neighborhoods in the United States. Colorful bars and restaurants line the streets, with the historic Castro Theater overlooking the area that Harvey Milk once called home.

Former military base, now a beautiful park that includes Crissy Field, Fort Point, Lucasfilm's (George Lucas) headquarters and the Walt Disney Museum.

Declared "one of the 10 wonders of the modern world," the Golden Gate Bridge not only one of the most recognized symbols of San Francisco, but one of the most photographed sites in the world. Simply stunning!

Muir Woods National Redwood Park is home to some of the oldest and most beautiful trees in the world. Featuring gorgeous walking trails and striking scenery, many consider this stop to be the highlight of their trip.

Marin Headlands

Located just north of San Francisco, Marin Headlands offers an incomparable view of the peninsula. Gaze over the Golden Gate Bridge across the Bay over San Francisco, and make sure to ask your guide to get your photo!


Nestled near downtown San Francisco, the Tenderloin neighborhood continues to resist gentrification, all while spearheading the local arts movement. It's a must-see in our modern-day city.
