Join our enthusiastic and experienced guides for a run on the best trails that San Francisco has to offer. Our city runs meld the urban landscape with the natural beauty of the parks and coastal trails. The phenomenal ocean and bay views and sweeping vistas overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge are enhanced by the dramatic hilly terrain.

Our goal is to show you the same city that we would show to our own visiting family and friends. Come Explore San Francisco with us.

Michael and David were so nice and friendly! While the tour didn't seem too structured, they guided us to some very interesting and tasty spots in the Ferry Building, all the while making it fun... more »
Michael was so helpful and accomodating with our planning and great communication which hasn't always been our experience with other food tours. Terrific afternoon exploring the Mission District and..... more »
We took the Mission tour (not the food one but the regular one). And it was excellent! We lucked out in two regards. First, the other people on the tour canceled so we got a private tour. Also, we got Michael as our tour guide and he was AMAZING! we were already familiar with the Mission district but learned so much more with Michael who was friendly and had a wealth of knowledge. He also gave great restaurant recommendations. highly recommend!
I was handed a last minute request to change our company Holiday Party this last year. My directive was to find an event that was fun, interesting, local to San Francisco, and that fit my approved budget. I did a quick search and found Explore San Francisco. Michael and his team were amazing. They listened to my requests and budget issues and were able to craft a special walking food tour of Chinatown and North Beach that impressed and delighted all. I am so thankful to Explore San Francisco for making me look like a rock star to my co-workers. We will definitely be booking future tours for other teams. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
