Alexandra is a great guide. She knows the city inside and out, and blends fun trivia and history with a beautiful route through hidden trails that she mapped out and forged herself. Meeting other guests from around the world, hearing about her experience starting a company in the epicenter of startups, and uncovering hidden gems of nature in a large... More

The guide was friendly, knowledgable and helpful regarding transit options around SFO. I thoroughly enjoyed the pace of the tour and the information provided. She also took some great pictures of the group and the views and posted them for us.

If you want to explore and appreciate the city of San Francisco away from the popular tourist traps, then this experience is a must. I was amazed at what we covered in three hours, and how much we learned. Great views, interesting trails via lane-ways and stairs that you would never find on your own, emerging on the summit of...

A backpack, water bottle, and sunscreen are a must in summer. The biggest surprise was all the hidden staircases. I had no idea. I also liked... More

Absolutely enjoyed this tour (with the exception of the weather!). Alex was fun, informative and took us to some incredible views of the city! If I had known I'd enjoy this so much, I would have taken her other tours. Take some jackets because the hill tops get windy and cold!! Do yourself a favor and book this tour and... More

Fantastic way to see off the beaten path in San Fransisco. Alex was a terrific guide. Communication before tour was great and she was really informative and good company during the tour. Plenty of rest stops so not too strenuous. Wouldn't hesitate to book again with her!
