Lots of fun! Very knowledgeable and likeable guide. Thanks!

Outstanding tours which i would highly recommend. I went on both the waterfront and Union Square tours. The Emperor knows the history of SF. No made up stories here! Of the 2 tours, if you can only do one, my favorite of the 2 was the one that started in Union Sq. It was a more expansive history of SF than the one that focused on the waterfront. These tours are worth your money!

With two teenagers who came back very happy with their afternoon adventure, I couldn't be more pleased. Their interest in San Francisco and its history was certainly enhanced from going. I'd recommend it highly.
