It may be famous for its cable cars, but San Francisco is a great city to explore on foot. In fact, it’s been ranked as one of the most walkable cities in America. Read on for walking tour recommendations, and make sure to bring your comfy shoes.

Highlights
  • Explore vibrant San Francisco neighborhoods like the Financial District, Chinatown, North Beach, the Mission, Haight-Ashbury, and the Castro.
  • Hear local insight and stories about the city’s past and present from your guide.
  • Take in the views along the San Francisco Bay and waterfront, including the Golden Gate Bridge.
  • Taste California cuisine and local beverages unique to the Bay Area.
  • Choose from tours that range from 75 minutes to a full day.

Themed Walking Tours
Themed tours are a fun way to see the city through a certain lens. Whether focused on food, hiking, cocktails, history, or even ghosts, these tours show you the best San Francisco has to offer when it comes to that topic. Tours of destinations like Little Italy and the Ferry Building often combine food with the area’s popular sights for the best of both worlds. Walking allows for more in-depth exploration of popular places like Union Square and Fisherman's Wharf. And, of course, private tours give you a little more control over where you go and what you see.

Neighborhood Walking Tours
Each of San Francisco’s neighborhoods has such a unique feel and character, you can’t go wrong exploring them by foot. Particularly scenic areas to explore include Nob Hill, Russian Hill (where Lombard Street is located), and Telegraph Hill (where Coit Tower is located).

San Francisco Urban Hike: Coit Tower, Lombard Street and North Beach

star-5
9
San Francisco is undoubtedly a hilly place, and this challenging 5-mile walking tour doesn’t shy away from the steepness. Instead, it takes you off the beaten path and onto some of the city’s stairways for an incredible exploration of several neighborhoods and downtown attractions. While meandering through SF’s Russian Hill, Telegraph Hill and North Beach neighborhoods, you’ll come upon some hidden gems, jaw-dropping views, and world-famous sites. Climb to Coit Tower via the Filbert Street Steps; ascend Lombard Street, often referred to as the crookedest street in the world; and discover a tiny park overlooking St Peter and Paul Church, where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio took their wedding pics after tying the knot at San Francisco City Hall.
