The Free SF Tour is organized by people who fell in love with San Francisco. We would like to give a warm welcome to everyone who visits this amazing city to talk about its rich and illustrious history, it's secrets and paths less trodden! We are open and curious folks who enjoy meeting new friends from all over the world. We would like to make you feel as if a friend of yours is showing you around, but a friend with local insights and nous. Those who are familiar with the city and even locals can get surprised too – and in the past 3 years, many did! The tour takes 2-2½ hours. You'd barely notice the time as it's less walking and more fun facts and conversation so you never get tired or bored. Moreover, you will meet and chat with other open and fun people, fellow travelers, or curious locals. So whether you are in SF for just a few days or if you live there, join us on this free walking tour!

About the Tour

Join our free tour and get ready for the most incredible stories of San Francisco.

We talk about the history of the city and today, you will hear stories of great personalities, influential women, gold miners and sailors, you will see places with ships buried underneath, you will visit secret terraces on the roofs and you will get tips and tricks for the city.

We are passionate about our city: with Free SF Tour you will not hear dry facts or simply be given a landmark. We have stories to tell at every step of our journey.

The tour runs through all of downtown San Francisco: Chinatown, Financial District (there will be buried ships!), Embarcadero.

At the end of the tour, a surprise awaits you: a comprehensive guide to everything San Francisco is: where to go, what to see, where to eat and drink, plus tips and tricks for the city.

Amazing tour, the best from the far that I have taken with Guru! We were with a very insightful guide who told us about so many architectural, social, political and historical stories about the city, its districts, and its people Filip was also very funny ! Surely you hear about stuff a guidebook wouldn’t have told you! Highly recommended
