Our tour guide, Kathy, was a wealth of knowledge! She gave us a fantastic tour with great insight to the rich LGBTQ history of the area. I can't wait to come back and learn more.
I live a few blocks away and learned great things about my neighborhood's history and culture that are fascinating. Great date idea!
Hi Kathy we are home now. We have left our review on tripadvisor. We both really enjoyed the tour and thank you very much. You have a fantastic knowledge of not just the Castro but San Francisco in general. You made the tour informative but also great fun. It was nice that a group of strangers from diverse backgrounds and regions were encouraged by yourself to interact.
Kathy was an extremely knowledgeable and fun guide! We had a fantastic time learning a lot of history and about this wonderful inclusive community xxx. Thank you so much Kathy -- Genie and I loved it!!! Will recommend 100%
Kathy was super!!!
Our tour guide Kathy was very knowledgeable and I could feel her deep passion and pride for the work that she does and the community she co-creates in the neighbourhood. I loved her humour, passion and authenticity!
Kathy was excellent. There were straight and gay people on the tour, and she made everyone feel welcome. Lots of great information. Wish the tour was longer.
This was a really well-planned tour - informative and way better than anything self-guided . Our guide, Kathy, was so knowledgeable, witty and considerate. Our group agrees: Cruisin the Castro is a must for SF visitors!
Excellent warm and personalized experience. The insiders perspective was amazing from someone who has lived there for a long time. Also made us feel safe walking in streets that has its fair share of intimidating characters especially for a first time visitor.
