Golden Gate Bridge
Don’t just believe the hype, come and see for yourself. The Golden Gate Bridge will leave you knowing why its been declared "one of the 10 wonders of the modern world.”
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.
Twin Peaks is the spot! Spend some time overlooking the city and you’ll see why even locals keep coming back.
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.
Located just beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point gives you a front row seat to the Bay and is a great photo stop. This former military fortification was used during WWII.
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.
"My wife and I were extremely satisfied with SF Excursions and our host Brendan. If you are ever going to visit SF for the first time, I highly recommend this excursion! Brendan was very attentive answered all our questions and provided a very detailed and fun tour for us of SF. We've booked several excursions in the past and what we liked the most about Brendan at almost every location we stopped he volunteered to take great pictures of us."

"DO IT! Brendan was hilarious and extremely knowledgeable. I’ve been to SF many times and taken a couple (generic) tours before, I thought I knew just about everything. But it became very clear that Brendan was born and raised in SF, which I heard is super rare actually. Hit him up after the tour for recommendations on ANYTHING; restaurants, bars, clubs, museums, sights, activities, etc. Especially if you want to get away from the tourists traps."
- Bradley Y.
"Brendan was an amazing guide who kept us entertained with his witty humor and expansive knowledge of SF! My husband and son are huge history buffs and Brendan gave so much detail about every stop on the tour! Unfortunately we were not able to visit Muir Woods due to it being closed but Brendan was more than accommodating, offering to take anyone who wanted to go the following week. You will not be disappointed!"
