Pam is a great tour guide: knowledgeable, funny, charismatic. I learned a lot. Overall, this was a great experience-- booking was easy, communication was fast and friendly, and what an amazing neighborhood with such a rich history and dynamic present. Thanks Del and Pam

Pam was excellent -- deeply informed and knowledgeable, charismatic and lovely, funny and engaging with a few of her own stories shared during our walk. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Pam and would do this again as well as recommend a Tenderloin walking tour to others! Thank you!

I can't recommend this tour highly enough - the highlight of my trip to SF. I enjoyed learning from an eloquent, informative and articulate host about the fascinating history of the Tenderloin - especially its union, LGBT, ethnic minority and working-class links - and seeing places I would not otherwise have had access too (Cadillac Hotel) or understood the backstory to (Boddecker Park). More importantly, though, it totally changed my perspective; instead of walking through an area of very visible poverty and homelessness and leaving depressed and shocked about what I saw, I left feeling empowered by having heard about resistance, service and outreach provision, active community organising, church and charity initiatives and the power of policy and legislation (such as tenancy rights, curbs on developers etc) to bring about change for the better. Instead of a "poverty safari", as these things can so often be, it was a walk that made me think about solidarity and hope.
