Walk with me


As anyone who knows me knows, I am a proud member of City Guides, a group that offers free, volunteer-led walking tours all over San Francisco. I personally endorse all our wonderful tours, and recommend taking them whenever possible (especially the Castro and Mission Dolores tours, which I lead). But I really push the tours during the months of May and October, when the weather is generally more conducive, and because these are the months we have extraordinary or infrequently scheduled tours. I’ve slated the following tours for myself, and I encourage anyone to come along. Most of these tours are exclusive to May/October, and some of them are one day only. Click the tour name to see the description of each tour, or see the full schedule on the City Guides site.  Note: Weekday tours are tentative, pending my continued un- self-employment.

    Man, I wish we could go on the Excelsior Stroll with you, but we have a vow-renewal party to go to that afternoon. (I think you meant to type 5/27, by the way… 5/25 is a Thursday.)

  • Doh … the 27th it is. Edit made.
