2 hour educational, and fun tour of the Castro neighborhood highlighting historic buildings and events. Fun trivia and games along the way. A great way to spend a few hours when visiting San Francisco.

Our tour was fabulous! There were only a few of us, so we were able to ask a lot of questions, and stop for refreshments in a local bar w/o overwhelming the place w/ too many tourists. Our guide was funny, full of interesting facts and history,...continued

Kim (our guide) was great. Had some fun trivia-type questions for us which made it interactive. Gave a good historical background of the Castro and GLBT community.
I'd definitely recommend it.

It was very informative. Given by a guide who had done a lot of research in preparation. Pace was easy and variety of destinations was good. Would recommend to all.

Great to get facts about the gay community; not too great about the Castro village itself; it's aiming tourists not local people

The guide showed up a little early. He was friendly, fun and full of information. I learned a lot (I am an East Bay resident) and had a great time. Easy public transportation, fairly flat, short walk. A unique area that is worth visiting.

Kim's tour was great: informative, entertaining, inclusive of guests, and very enjoyable. We really liked learning more about the history of the neighborhood, as well as the history of the LGBT movement in SF. Thank you Kim.

Kim, our guide was funny and easy to talk to. We learned a bunch about the Castro and stopped in a great little wine bar mid tour. Definately worthwhile if you've never ventured into this really great little community.

Funny and informative. Learned a few things about the Castro that I didn't and probably would never have known.

Our tour guide was on time, well spoken, organized, funny & enjoyable. We learned the history of the area of the Castro as a neighborhood. We used BART and muni to get there. There is a great Chocolate Café to enjoy as well.

Learned a lot, even though I have lived here all my (straight female) 67 years. Thankful it was not "kitschy." Only three of us on this day. I enjoyed meeting the gay couple visiting from London. Guide was professional. Dunno what S.F. school kids...continued
