I was HIGHLY satisfied with a detailed and colorful history of the area provided by Valerie, who is a very engaging historian.
Interesting information presented in a brief manner, yet many details included. Very professional and eager to share. Arrived on time, very cordial.
Very personal, educational with very little if any walking up hills!
Our guide knew her topic & was extremely interesting. Our tour was during the power outage & we managed around the city under trying circumstances.
Good personal tour by a knowledgeable tour guide.
Val's encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of San Francisco and its main ( and colourful) characters made for a really entertaining and enjoyable tour. We were so pleased we chose Hobnob Tours to show us some of this wonderful city.
Val had extremely extensive historical knowledge of Nobs Hill, and was personable and eager to answer all our questions.
