Enjoy our new fun and witty, personal walking tours along sections of San Francisco’s famous, historic 49 MILE SCENIC DRIVE.

Each tour explores a top visitor area starting with the most popular section of the City: Chinatown, Nob Hill, North Beach.

These tours are BASED ON THE AWARD WINNING GUIDEBOOK: Walking San Francisco’s 49 Mile Scenic Drive.

Developed in collaboration with the guidebook’s authors, who are the first people known to have walked the entire 49 Mile Scenic Route—not in one day—in 17 bite-sized neighborhood chunks, one walk at a time. The SF Chronicle called them the foremost authorities on it!

“Unlike other guides, we have personally visited every site and led hundreds of people along the route. With three years of feedback, we have worked to make these walks an entertaining and informative adventure for visitors and locals.”

Super friendly - and short - snippets of info cover dozens of points-of-interest, stories, and little-known history factoids. Plus fun quizzes!

And if you’ve ever had the frustration of a gps guide “dot on the map” that doesn’t show you which way you’re facing, we’ve solved that! Our clear, arrow, seagull indicator tells you where you’re facing.

Best of all, turn-by-turn notifications, a zoomable map, and a recenter button mean you cannot get lost. (We even help you find the nearest bathroom!)

Enjoy San Francisco to the fullest. Great for locals and visitors.

Fun, Easy, and Educational!

I had a great time using the app. One thing that I love about the app is that it adds an extra layer of fun and excitement to the actual walk. Being a native San Franciscan, I am always amazed at the amount of things I don’t know about the city’s history. This app (along with the book) gives you a lot of fun, cool, and interesting facts about the city that really serve to enhance your journey. Highly recommended!

Fantastic app to learn about Sf history and enjoy scenery

This app makes exploring sf AND learning about its interesting history easy and fun. It tells you where to go and at same time gives you interesting tidbits about history of buildings people neighborhoods. If you enjoy strolling soaking in beauty and appreciating historical context of what you are seeing this is your app

Great way to have fun and learn something new

We checked out a few of the walks and had a really fun time. Not only did we experience all the beauty our City offers but we also got to learn a few things along the way and some of that trivia will now be passed on to friends and visitors. Super fun.
