The Classic SF Walking Tour
**Please Book 24 hour or more in advance of desired date!*** The Experience For the ultimate introduction to San Francisco, we’ve paired the city’s two most timeless and visited areas: Downtown and Chinatown. The Classic SF shows off the best of San Francisco’s origins and rise as the Gold Rush metropolis, home to the crazed, the wealthy and the inspirational. Hear how this overnight city began, and what it’s become today. In Chinatown, hear tales of revolutionary leaders, the Great Earthquake of 1906, bizarre architecture, fortune cookies and gang battles in a vibrant community often visited by tourists, yet rarely understood. Funky, passionate and artistically inclined, your guide will ensure you’re fully entertained along your journey to local landmarks and hidden treasures. Learn fun facts, surprising myths, and historic stories about the beautiful City by the Bay from those who make an art out of living here. Get a glimpse of local life by checking out some of your guide’s favorite sites, shops and local institutions. Highlights: Transamerica Pyramid, SF’s tallest structure Fortune Cookie factory Union Square and the St. Francis Hotel Maiden Lane, the Red Light District Chinatown Dragon Gate Portsmouth Square, Chinatown’s “living room” Photogenic alleys (from Indiana Jones & Pursuit of Happyness) Tin How Temple, first Chinese temple in America St. Mary’s Cathedral, oldest on West Coast Site of first Cable Car line Painted balconies of Waverly Place Golden Dragon Massacre location in Chinatown Former home of eccentric Emperor Norton Site of buried Gold Rush ships Plus a few cool surprises!
