We enjoyed the individual attention and small group size. The guides were very familiar with the TL and its history. Also, they were open to discussing their personal experiences and tailoring the tour to our interests. Both our guides also provided followup information that was helpful to our particular interests. Really appreciated it!

My tour guide Pam Coates revealed much more beauty and community than I understood existed in the Tenderloin. I took the tour to get to know more about my city, and to feel less afraid in that specific neighborhood, and that was exactly what happened. I felt comfortable and informed and inspired by the tour, and want to take it again to deepen my understanding. Well worth it. I highly recommend.

Our tour guide, Pam, was excellent. She had a great sense of humor and an expansive knowledge of the neighborhood. I wish we had had more time. I learned so much!
