Jay, the owner and tour guide, is fantastic!
We met him on Friday at 11am near the big red heart on Union Square and were treated to a private tour (no one showed up, I think due to the power outage).
Even when there was a power outage, Jay got us to the "Victorian House District" and gave us so much insight into the gorgeous houses that are part of SF's history: the architecture, interior, history, and more. We even got to go into a historic Victorian house and check out the details.
Overall, if you're looking for a short but informative tour, the Victorian Home Walk is an excellent choice - I would go again! :)

This was an excellent tour; Jay, our guide, was knowledgeable, personable, and really had a great timing sense. We never felt rushed, nor did we feel like there was too much time spent on one particular site. However, looking back at it, I was so interested in the stories (and the pace of the walk moved well), that I forgot to take pictures of some of the houses. I would suggest adding photo recommendations to the tour. Nonetheless, this tour was one of the highlights of our trip, and I did watch Mrs. Doubtfire on the flight home! It was fun to recognize Pacific Heights and the houses we saw in the film!

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
