Joseph was exceptional and the tour was so much more than my friends and I had expected. He is from the community we toured and knew so much about its history, art, music, food, people and architecture. He brought us to places I never would have discovered on my own and I live in the Bay Area. I highly recommend it!

Joseph was a truly knowledgebale and kind host. He presented the history and food details very vividly. Great, exciting storytelling made it really a day to remeber.

It was phenomenal! Katya was superb! We got to see all we wanted and more plus we had tons of photo opps so we can remember this fantastic experience!

Above all, the guide was super friendly, nice and gave us lots of tips for San Francisco. Highly recommended :)

Lots of fun. Might be too small if you are a bigger person.
