It was very interesting and informative. It was a nice combination of walking and talking that lasted a little over two hours and covered the area and events quite nicely. I would recommend it to a local or a visitor!

It was great, though I was only able to attend the first half of it, due to other plans. Totally entertaining, a really good presenter. I'd recommend it.

Very good tour. The tour guide was personable and funny and had lots of good information about the neighborhood. This tour was more walking (less standing) than other tours -- which for me was a good thing! I brought two teens and even they...continued

It was pretty funny and informative....although the tour guide would lose his train of thought every now and then....also a resident yelled at him for giving incorrect information (felt kinda bad for him). The tour ended 20 minutes early.

This tour was really fun and definitely brought back memories. The tour guide used a good combination of humor, games, and musical clips from the 1960s/70s to keep it lively and fun.

I took my son on his 18th birthday with two of his friends and they had a great time. Not knowing a lot of that history or the cultural and the merging music scene, each of them found something they could relate to and just had a whole lot of fun.

Excellent and easy walk thru Haight history. Informative - learned some things I didn't know. Nicely complemented with music and punny jokes.

Kurt is wonderful - personable, knowledgable, engaging with wonderful stories, insightful history lessons and a nice bit of interactive humorous engagement with the group. Lots and lots of fun.

I really enjoyed this tour. It was informative and as much an architecture tour as it was a historical tour of the Haight. It was easy to find our tour guide and nice to be able to grab a cup of coffee at the Peace Cafe before we all headed out....continued

Tour guide was hard to find with out a name tag. The Peace Cafe knew nothing about the tour. The tour was 30 mins late starting. The tour was not as informative as i had hoped. But the tour guide made the tour fun with nice tour/tourist interaction.

Good tour, good humor, good pace, good music (especially the Manson clip!). Would have liked it to to be a wee bit longer, as it would have been had it included a little bit more information about some of the gorgeous houses we saw along the way...continued

I really enjoyed this tour. I was a bit wary when I read that it was a "comedy tour" but our guide was funny and enjoyable in a low key, non offensive way. Our group size was perfect and I enjoyed all the walking. I am 24 and I got this as a gift...continued
