Full description
This experience is essential to anyone who is serious about exploring the best of San Francisco. Start the day with a coffee on Union Square, named for a series of pro-union mass demonstrations for the Civil War. This is the epicenter of the city’s shopping district and a great place to start your orientation in the city. Walk through Chinatown, which remains its own authentic world despite the number of international visitors. Join the locals and check out the vegetable and herb markets, restaurants and the colorful markets along Stockton Street. Your local host will also recommend some peculiar knickknack shops which are a great source of souvenirs. On a nice day, let your local host take you on a diversion to the waterfront and grab some lunch in the Ferry Building Marketplace, where there are several excellent options, from street food and gourmet meals. Refueled, walk leisurely past the Embarcadero, the views on the bay are breathtaking and more and more attractions are popping up along the Fisherman’s Wharf, including the Exploratorium and Pier 39. Your local host will suggest activities for the afternoon. According to your preferences, you may consider exploring the huge Golden Gate Park and its peculiar gardens, walk around the elegant Nob Hill or have a taste of the great mix of modern and old-world charm of the Mission. A great place to end the experience is the Marin county end of the Golden Gate Bridge as the late afternoon fog rolls in, and you’ll witness the ultimate magic show - now you see the Golden Gate Bridge, now you don’t. This experience is great for all ages. Book this experience and you will be contacted within 24-hours with questions about your preferences and interests. A like-minded and vetted local host who knows the city intimately and shares your interests will be handpicked and assigned to you. Replicate the experience of spending time in a city with a friend who lives there as the best travel moments come from going beneath the surface of a destination and discovering it through a local lens. Based on the things that you would like to see and do a personalized and bespoke itinerary will be built just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. During the exploration, if you feel like changing direction, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary. You will be able to arrange a meeting point and time with your host in the most convenient place for you. Enjoy discovering amazing spots in San Francisco that you don't know about and are difficult to find in any guidebook or on the internet as they are lesser-known to the crowd but loved by locals. Let your private local host show you the San Francisco you will love.
