David was a fantastic guide! He grew up in San Francisco, and it's clear that he's invested in Chinatown as a community and really cares about telling its story well. He picked out delicious spots for food and dessert, and also went in-depth on the history of Chinatown, its people, and its restaurants. Highly recommended!

Mark was a very knowledgeable and friendly person. His family has a lengthy history with San Francisco which helped Mark provide more details about the city from his family history. We greatly appreciate how Mark adhered to COVID-19 safety protocol. We definitely applaud Mark for the tour of Sutro Baths and Lands End.

Wow! I was truly impressed with Victoria's landmarks and cable car museum tour! The tour was a nice mix of historical informational as well as having opportunities to take pictures and ask questions. The pace was good too. I never felt rushed or like I was being fed too much information. She is a very personable and friendly guide.

The tour was interesting and informative. There was no GuruWalk labeling so it was a little difficult to find at first, but okay once we saw a group of people in a circle.
