Additional Information

What is a walking tour?

Much different from bus tours and other tours that provide some sort of transportation, which allow you to cover a wider view of San Francisco, walking tours are usually focused on a single area or neighborhood. Rather than making quick stops at different locations, your tour guide will not only take you to some interesting places, but will also provide background information and answer any questions. There are many different types of tours that go to historical sights, local bars, unique restaurants, scenic vistas, parks and more. Walking tours can run from an hour to a full day, depending on the tour you choose. You can find a variety of free tours, however most will cost you between $20 and $50.

Top Walking Tours in San Francisco include the Chinatown Walking Tour, the Little Italy and North Beach Walking Tour, the Alcatraz and Fisherman’s Wharf Walking Tour and the Golden Gate Bridge Walking Tour.
