For your comfort and safety, please wear comfortable, closed-toe walking shoes (no flip-flops or loose sandals). San Francisco has many micro-climates, so dress in layers. Wearing sunscreen and, perhaps, a hat or a visor is a good idea. Also, bring water, a camera and lunch money, and be ready to enjoy a fun day.

All public transit costs incurred during the course of the tour for streetcars and buses are the responsibility of tour attendees. Tour attendees also assume the costs for lunch and entry to the Mission Dolores.
