Classic SF Tour: Chinatown and North Beach
**Please Book 24 hour or more in advance of desired date!*** The Experience The Classic SF Route is an interactive journey through time, from the Gold Rush to today. Venture under the shade of skyscrapers, and understand San Francisco’s origins and rise as an overnight metropolis, home to the crazed, the wealthy and the inspirational. In Chinatown, head down hidden alleys to hear tales of revolutionary leaders, the Great Earthquake of 1906, bizarre architecture and fortune cookies in a vibrant community often visited by tourists, yet rarely understood.
