Your guide keeps you, family and friends on track with fun trivia and facts about the sights you pass, and there are plenty of stops to take photos along the way.

Join a troupe of Segway riders on Beach Street, along Fisherman's Wharf, to gear up for your evening ride with a 40-minute safety orientation. Along with a helmet and safety vest, you'll get hooked up with a radio device so you don't miss any of your guide's commentary along the way.

At night, sleep warm and comfortably in the Yosemite Valley Lodge, nestled in the heart of Yosemite Valley or one of  Yosemite Half Dome Village's Heated Tent Cabins.

During your free time, you'll have the flexibility to craft your own experience: choose to hike some of the valley trails, join a ranger program, go snowshoeing, ice skate, or take a guided tour of the valley floor while surrounded by some of Yosemite's most prominent landmarks. In the evening, kick back with a warm drink, arrange a twilight or night hike, or hear stories told fireside at the Majestic Yosemite (formerly Ahwahnee) Hotel. The choice is entirely up to you!

Only the explorer who visits Yosemite National Park in the winter months will truly understand the exquisite silence and majestic views that endeared travelers like John Muir, Ansel Adams, and Theodore Roosevelt to this astounding landscape. With fewer visitors and more solitude, this winter voyage to Yosemite is not to be missed.

Walking Tour of San Francisco Financial District

Tours San Francisco
$30

Explore San Francisco's iconic Financial District on an easy 2-hour walking tour. Hear the legends of the city' first venture capitalist, banking scandals, architectural genius and a public funeral for a much loved stray dog.  See hidden architectural treasures, a ballroom, sculptures, and the spectacular Garden Court at the Palace hotel. Walk with a local expert guide.

The discovery of gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains brought thousands of immigrants from all over the world to the western shores of California in the mid 19th century. What had been a small sleepy fishing village of a few hundred people was transformed overnight into a city of Australian, Chinese, Irish, Italian, French, German, and South American immigrants. Although the lure of gold brought people from all walks of life to the foggy shores of San Francisco, it was especially appealing to adventurous men, entrepreneurs and criminals searching for new lives, riches, and golden opportunities along the unregulated shores of the wild city. Nowhere in San Francisco was this more apparent than the area now known as the Financial District, once referred to as the "Barbary Coast of California".  

Your tour of this historic area begins at the Bank of America Plaza on California and ending on New Montgomery.  You will be introduced to the neighborhood and begin your journey through the once-wild streets known 150 years ago for the illicit saloons, brothels and houses of ill-repute that once dominated the waterfront. Your guide will fill you in on how this neighborhood came to be dominated by banks and corporations as San Francisco became the "Wall Street of the West" with beautiful examples of American Renaissance style architecture.

After a leisurely 2 hours walk discovering unique aspects of the city, you will end your tour at the magnificent Palace Hotel.

SF Walking Tour by Award Winning Guide

Tours San Francisco
$28
On this walking tour of San Francisco you'll be lied to by an award winning tour guide who's been walking for almost 50 years - Often with little help from others. 
Learn the strange stories you won't hear from the "normal" tours of San Francisco on this humorous, small group excursion.  Gain an insider's perspective on the quirky tales of gold-rush era Union Square, grab a cup of tea in Chinatown or stop in for a pint at an Irish pub.
Hear your local guide, blogger, writer and sometimes personal antagonist share colorful anecdotes and the occasional tall tale on this lively and wholly entertaining exploration of the heart of San Francisco.
All tours include bottled water, candy, a souvenir drawstring back pack and access to a library of pictures on your own mobile device.

San Francisco probably packs more strange stories into 170+ years of history than any other city in America.  With influences stretching from early Spanish Missionaries and Mexican fisherman to Irish, Italian, and Chinese immigrants during the Gold Rush, the City by the Bay is rife with stories of new beginnings, failed businesses, and bizarre betrayals.  Pirates, parrots, and pre-civil-war trading vessels shared harbors with Australian outlaws, Chinese laborers, and Mormon Elders.  After WW2, it became a haven for beat poets escaping New York, conservationist looking to build political movements, and long-haired hippies escaping “The Man”. 

This 3-part walking tour connects you to a local guide and writer who has his own special perspective on San Francisco – one that changes often!  Hear his own take on 19th century brothels, the best places for Chinese dim sum, and why certain Catholic churches survived the earthquake of 1906.  The tour has three different legs – a Downtown leg in the morning, a Chinatown tour in the afternoon, and a third part that finishes at Yerba Buena (and Little Italy) right before dinner.  Select a specific leg or combine different segments to create your own fun-filled day meandering through the city streets. 

The tour is family-friendly and filled with local perspectives, insider tips, and recommendations for all the best places to grab a bite to eat or something to drink when you are finished.

Flavors and Murals of the Mission District of San Francisco

Tours San Francisco
$58
The Mission may be San Francisco's oldest neighborhood, but this district has turned into one of the trendiest parts of the city. Walk among the hippest locals in town on this 2.5-hour San Francisco food tour that combines artisanal eats with some of the most beautiful murals and legendary street art in the city. Expect to try gourmet donuts, Mexican pastries, 'agua fresca' (fruit drink), sweet or savory pie, and stop at a famous taqueria before finishing up at Dolores Park and the Mission Dolores.

Your San Francisco food-tasting tour of the Mission District kicks off with a breakfast of coffee and donuts. Sink your teeth into an artisan-made treat fashioned from locally sourced, organic ingredients. Choose from an eclectic selection of donuts, ranging from bacon maple apple to chocolate rose to lemon and thyme, perfectly paired with your cup 'o joe. 

Your guide introduces you to the neighborhood and its legendary food scene. Stop at a local panaderia, or Mexican bakery, emblematic of the Mission District's Latino culture. Bite into pan dulce, or Mexican sweet bread, made fresh daily, and wash it down with refreshing agua fresca, a blended fruit drink.

Continue on to see the murals located along Balmy Avenue, an area with artistic roots dating back several decades. Then sample pie from a local shop, and find your own slice of joy in strawberry rhubarb or perhaps a roasted cauliflower and black olive quiche made with free-range eggs and organic dairy.

After a taste of these delights, hop on a bus (ticket at own expense) and travel a few minutes down the heart of Mission Street, making your way to one of the oldest and most beloved taquerias in the neighborhood for a sampling.

Then proceed on foot to Clarion Alley, where you'll find the second largest collection of murals in the Mission — more contemporary than Balmy Avenue and lined with colorful graffiti. Your guide takes you to the center of the city's hipster scene at the Mission's best thrift stores and one of the trendiest bakeries where you can grab a final snack.

Conclude your 2.5-hour food tour at Dolores Park and the nearby Mission Dolores church. Spend as much time as you like here, learning about the history and stories that built San Francisco.

On this fun-filled historical city tour, hop aboard the Magic Bus that will transport you to 1960s San Francisco. Become a part of the Beatnik generation, see Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love and visit San Francisco's Chinatown, from which eastern philosophy spread in the 1960s. Discover the iconic neighborhoods as they are now with your own eyes, and see the past come alive with retractable projection screens that cover the windows, giving you a look back in time.

Board the brightly colored Magic Bus in central San Francisco and begin your journey through time as you are transported from Union Square to Chinatown, a culturally vibrant pocket of San Francisco that is home to the largest population of Chinese in America. Chinatown was a significant part of America's exposure to Eastern philosophies in the 1960s and beyond.

After you've experienced the famous Haight-Ashbury district through the bus's windows of time-altered perception, your next destination is the lush gardens of Golden Gate Park, where you'll stop at the Conservatory of Flowers. Hear how America's largest urban park hosted the Human Be-In event in 1967 and the first Earth Day in 1970. If the weather is nice, you may join a drum circle!

The '60s-era video, music and costumed staff of the Magic Bus will have you feeling present in the past as you are immersed in one of the United States' most memorable cultural movements. It's not just a sightseeing tour – it's a trip!

Visit Sausalito's famed houseboats and learn the storied history of one of the bay's most iconic landmarks on this 3 hour walking tour.  Explore WWII era shipyards and learn how wooden boat building has long impacted the quirky town on the northern side of the Golden Gate.  Hear stories of the bohemian writers and influential artist who defined an era, from American expressionist Walter Kuhlman to southern transplant Otis Redding, who spent his short time here recording the song “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” just days before his fatal plane crash.  Learn how the dozens of seemingly unconnected threads of history combine to create a rich tapestry of people, personalities, and art forms known as Sausalito from a local artist and author. Minimum of 6 people required.
Note: If you have fewer than 6 people in your party, please call the day before to check on availability. The Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour guide book offers a self-guidex option

Growing out of the abandoned industrial shipyards built during WWII, Sausalito's storied house boat community has long been a haven for artist, eccentrics, and bohemians escaping the daily confines of a more structured society.  On this 3 hour walking tour through the old wooden shipyards and floating docks hugging the coast of Richardson Bay, local author and artist Victoria Colella revisits the wildly entertaining history of these floating homesteads and shares some of her more colorful anecdotes about the people who lived here.

Starting along the waterfront near the oldest surviving wooden hulled ferryboat on the West Coast, your guide will explain how wooden boat building came to define the town of “little willow tree”, which is how Sausalito translates in Spanish, and how it impacted future development.  Moving from dock to dock, you'll learn how WWII transformed the area, briefly turning the bay into the busiest shipbuilding region in the world during the latter half of the global conflict.  You'll learn about the incredibly colorful history of the artist and cast-offs, musicians and hippies who moved into the area after the war, turning it into a vibrant alternative cultural center that contrasted sharply with the increasingly affluent communities that grew up on the nearby hills. 

You'll finish the tour with an understanding of how the craft of building these wooden boats remains alive today, visiting the historic Marinship shipyards where the famed Liberty Ships were once launched and restored houseboats, luxury yachts, and bay-area ferries are still built and launched today.  Learn the heart and soul of this fascinating seaside community from a local guide whose passion for her town and community translates to a rich and rewarding experience throughout the entire tour.
