I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Jay has lived in San Fran for a long time and he knows all the stories. It was great to go inside a restored Victorian building in all it's period glory, as well as see a splendid garden.
We learned about Uber, 1906 fire, Robin Williams, first African American female millionaire, immigration and more.
His restaurant suggestions at the end of the tour were excellent too!

This is a wonderful walk. Jay, the guide, is knowledgeable and funny and has done a fantastic job in putting together a walk in San Francisco that does not need you to climb hills

Jay is a charming tour guide that has been doing this walking tour for over 20 years. He has tons of history and architectural knowledge that he's quick to share. Jay has also selected a walking route that is mostly flat (only one down hill). (After walking the hills from Union Square to China Town to the piers the previous day, I was glad this was not strenuous but mainly a stroll. We end up in Cow Hollow a cool part of San Francisco with eclectic shops and restaurants (no franchise stores here) and had lunch at Perry's, a cool restaurant in a victorian era building.

I ended up being a tour group of one, but Jay was no less attentive or informative. Jay is extremely knowledgeable about the history and architecture of the city. The walking is not the least bit strenuous, and the Victorian houses are spectacular, both inside and out. Gives different insights into the city--beyond the typical tourists experiences (Golden Gate Park, Fisherman's Wharf, etc.). Loved admiring the "painted ladies" and mourned the "smothered Victorians" (you'll have to go on the tour to what what they are). Recommend the tour highly.
