Greetings from San Francisco! My name is Victoria. Allow me to be your ‘hostess with the mostess’ in this buzzing city, and show you some of its hidden treasures. For the past ten years, I have had the honour of sharing its rich history, vivid culture and latest trends with curious visitors. I can offer my tours in English, Spanish, French and Catalan. For dates and times, outside the Tour Schedule listed below, contact me and I will accommodate your agenda. Thank you! :)
Welcome Everybody! Let’s blaze a trail on foot through the oldest Chinatown in the United States. You will see some colourful Pagodas and revel in stories about what makes this neighbourhood so enticing. We’ll begin our 2.5 hr tour at the famous Dragon Gate, located on the corner of Bush Street and Grant Avenue. From there, we’ll stroll four blocks to Portsmouth Square, the heart of Chinatown. Rich with its history as marked by statues, markers and plaques sprinkled throughout the square. Our tour continues into the buzzing SOMA neighbourhood, where tech meets green. The walk to SOMA is 15-minutes, and you’ll be happy to hear it’s all flat. If you’re the kind of person who’s fascinated by architecture, yet appreciates Mother Nature, this is it and more :) For the grand finale, we’ll jump into a Gondola, and land on a lush rooftop garden park above the Grand Central Station of the West, where tropical plants thrive surrounded by giant towers of steel. The tour concludes where I’ll provide information to help you get to your next destination, including dining recommendations and other sightseeing options. Join me for this unique and entertaining experience :) * Please note for Salesforce Park purposes, this tour can accommodate a maximum number of 25 visitors. Thank you!

How to find me: Chinatown Dragon Gate, on the corner of Bush Street and Grant Avenue. The easiest way to get to this location is by Bart or Muni Metro. You can catch either train to the Montgomery St Station. I’ll be wearing a pink top and holding a Free Tours sign.

Victoria was very knowledgeable, and we live in San Francisco. We met a great couple, and the group was much more like being with friends, than on some impersonal tour. I highly recommend it.
We had such a great time! Vicky is lovely, knows so many things and is able to explain them very well! We had an absolutely amazing time! Vicky is a great guide and I would highly recommend doing one of her tours :) THANKS VICKY!
